What is the Tail Lamp Bulb all about?

The rear light bulbs light up when the headlights are on. This allows the drivers behind you to see your car. It is common for the bulb socket to melt, causing the bulbs not to work.

Keep in mind:

  • When a tail lamp bulb is replaced, all of the vehicle’s light bulbs should be checked.
  • After a tail lamp bulb is replaced, it should always be checked to see if it works, in case the problem lies with the switch or fuse.

How it's done:

  • Inspect bulbs, sockets, wires, and fuses.
  • Remove and replace the bulb if it is blown.
  • Repair or replace any damaged bulb holder(s)
  • Check operation of all running and headlamps.

Our recommendation:

A mechanic should check all the lights in your car every time you get a major service.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Tail Lamp Bulb?

  • Rear lights not working.

How important is this service?

Tail lamps exist so that vehicles behind you can see your car. When you turn on your headlights, your tail lamps (light bulbs at the rear of your vehicle) illuminate. This keeps your car well lit, and helps vehicles behind you see your car. When your tail lamp bulbs stop working, your car will be less visible from behind, which is a safety hazard. Driving without ignited tail lamps is also illegal, and the fix-it ticket can carry a hefty price tag.

We couldn’t be happier! Peter showed up early, changed the oil & filter, fixed the tail light and replaced the rear wiper blade. All of this at a fraction of the price that the BMW dealership was going to charge. We’ll definitely be using him again! Thanks so much!
