Headlights and Tail Lights
Headlight AssemblyIt's a clear night yet you can't get a clear view of the road ahead. Your car headlights simply don’t seem to have the same power they used to. It's probably time to check your vehicle's headlight assembly. Over time the plastic lens of your headlights has a tendency to become discolored or “milky”. This inevitably cuts down on the amount of light passing through the lens and lighting your path. Poor vehicle lighting components should never be ignored. Failing to replace or repair headlights subjects you and your occupants to a high risk of getting into an accident during nighttime or low visibility driving conditions.
Your vehicle's headlights are designed to provide you the ability to travel safely at high rates of speed at nighttime or darkened conditions. Some vehicles headlights automatically turn on when the sensors are triggered by the oncoming of nightfall. Proper operating headlights save you from potential trouble on the road. The typical headlight is designed to provide two kinds of beams: a low beam and a high beam. The low beam is designed to provide ample road illumination while minimizing the glare of your headlights to oncoming vehicles. The high beam provides maximum illumination with limited glare control. Without proper operating headlights, your ability to navigate the road in low-visibility conditions is significantly impaired. Simply put, your vehicle's headlights make it safe to drive at night or in low-visibility conditions.
It is important that your vehicle's headlight assembly is always in top condition. With perfectly functional headlights on your vehicle, you're guaranteed to enjoy superior road visibility. Replacing your damaged headlights yourself is usually straight forward. If you don’t feel mechanically inclined there are numerous local auto repair shops capable of replacing your new headlight assembly.
Headlights are an important facet of the overall car design theme. As such, they are highly sought after in case of an accident. The problem is that like most OEM parts the headlight assembly is typically a dealership exclusive item and cost-prohibitive. An aftermarket headlight assembly offers a cost-effective alternative. AutoShack offers a full line of headlight assemblies for all Years, Makes and Models of both cars and trucks. We carry new headlight assemblies for both domestic and imported vehicles. All headlight assemblies are direct fit replacements for factory stock headlight assemblies.
If your headlights are worn or damaged it is important to replace them right away.
Tail Light AssemblyA tail light or a tail lamp is the part of the lighting system of a vehicle that is attached in front and at the rear part of the vehicle. They usually come in pairs (left or driver side and right or passenger side). The tail light provides different functions.
The signal lights, or turning lights, are usually part of the tail light assembly. Usually yellow in color because of regulatory standards, this part of the tail light assembly indicates that a vehicle is going to turn right or left. The same lights are also used during times of emergency by engaging your hazard or emergency signal. Your reverse lights are also part of the tail lamp assembly and are used to both indicate that a vehicle is backing up and provide a bright light to guide you as you back up. The reverse lights come on automatically when the vehicle is placed into reverse. These lights often have the highest illumination in the tail lamp assembly but are not as bright.
