    New Car HID Lights in Hamilton

    About HID / Xenon lights

    High-Intensity Discharge (or HID) lights are becoming increasingly common in cars. They are known for their high level of brightness, which improves your car’s safety at night by allowing you to clearly see what is in front of you.

    HID headlights beam a bright light that forms through a combination of xenon gas and vaporized salt, which are activated on an arc by a ballast in the range of 30,000 V and sustained in the voltage range of 80 to 100 V. Due to the presence of xenon gas, they are often referred to as xenon lights.

     

    Causes of HID lights not working:

    Possible causes of HID light problems include:

    • Bulbs that are overused and have become dimmer.
    • Blown fuses.
    • Wiring problems.
    • Problems with the alternator / battery that cause the lights to be dimmer than normal.

     

    How often do HID lights need to be replaced?

    HID/xenon light bulbs tend to last significantly longer than other types of bulb. However, they are prone to failing eventually. Typically, a standard HID bulb will last for around 2,000 hours of on time. When your car’s HID lights are due for a replacement, they will become noticeably dimmer than normal, or not produce any light at all.

    Replacing your car’s headlights when they become dim will greatly improve your safety while driving at night. This is because your light n ot only allow you to see the road in front of you, but allow other drivers to see you coming. Having a working set of headlights is also necessary for passing your Warrant of Fitness.
