About HID / Xenon lights

When it comes to upgrading your vehicle’s lighting system, HID (High-Intensity Discharge) lights are a great option. HID lights are brighter, more efficient, and longer-lasting than traditional halogen bulbs. If you’re looking for a way to improve your visibility and safety on the road, HID lights are a great choice.

HID lights produce a much brighter and whiter light than halogen bulbs, making it easier to see at night and in bad weather conditions. This can greatly improve your visibility and reaction time, making you a safer driver. HID lights are also more energy-efficient, which means they use less power and have a longer lifespan. This means you’ll save money on replacement bulbs in the long run.

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.
