How Long Does a Trunk Light Bulb Last?

With all of the parts of a car, it can be a bit overwhelming when trying to keep up with everything. The lights that are on a car serve a variety of different purposes and keeping them working should be a priority. Among the most useful lights that are on a car are located in the trunk. Most people use their trunks on a daily basis to do things like haul groceries around. If unloading the contents of a trunk at night, having a light can be very beneficial. Every time that the trunk is opened, this light will come on to illuminate the inside of this space.

Just like any other bulb, the trunk bulb will wear out over time. Usually, a bulb will get around 4,000 hours before it will need to be replaced. There are a number of factors that can lead to these bulbs wearing out faster. Having too much moisture in a trunk can lead to the bulb being blown prematurely. Taking the time to inspect the trunk on a regular basis will make it easy for you to figure out when there is an issue with the bulbs that need to be addressed.

Replacing a bulb in the trunk of your car can be a bit difficult. The degree of difficulty involved will be directly related to the type of car that you have. If you are unsure about how to get the blown bulb out, then you will have to seek out some professional help. Allowing the professionals to handle this type of work is the best way to make sure that it is done the right way.

The following are some of the signs that you will start to notice when it is time to get the trunk light on your car replaced:

  • The light isn’t coming on at all
  • The light blinks on and off when the trunk is open
  • The light has a black film on it

Getting a quality replacement bulb put in will allow you to restore the illumination that will help you see at night. Be sure that a high-quality replacement bulb is used to ensure that it will last a long time to come. Have a certified mechanic replace the failing trunk light bulb to eliminate any further problems with your vehicle.
