Headlights are a vital component of a vehicle. They help you see the road at night so you can protect yourself and your car from obstacles and pedestrians.
Imagine if the headlights malfunction, not only are you in danger of getting into an accident but you are likely to hit somebody and cause injuries. Therefore, your vehicle’s headlamps must be in perfect condition. Go for headlights checkup and repair every once in a while.
Though you should be clear on how to spot defective headlights and buy the genuine product in the first place, if your high beam and low beam headlights do not work for some reason, here are some ways to find out how to fix them.
Low Beam Headlights Don’t Work - How to Fix
If your car’s low beam headlights are not working, the first thing you need to do is check the bulb inside the headlamp.
Light bulbs have a limited lifespan, after which they can break any time. Normally, a bulb lasts 5 to 6 years depending on the time you spend driving at night. Those of you who do a lot of nighttime driving will burn a bulb quicker.
Fix: Repairing a headlight bulb is not possible, at least not without the proper tools and equipment. A bulb has a tungsten filament inside which burns out due to use. Unless you are qualified to replace a tungsten filament, do not think about a repair.
A replacement bulb is the best option. Buy a new bulb, twist the connector behind the headlight housing, remove the worn-out bulb, and add the new one. There are certainly many benefits for you to replace headlights.
If you’re struggled with choosing high performance headlights, OEDRO LED headlights are always the right choice for you. You can also read OEDRO’s previous blog to learn how to tell high performance led headlights.
2. Connecting system
A car’s low beam headlights may not work if they are not connected to the system correctly. The bulb inside the headlight and the headlight housing experience a lot of vibration when you drive your car. As a result, either the bulb gets loose or the connector gets loose.
Fix: To fix a loose bulb or connector, pop open the hood and reach behind the headlight. You will feel a connector which needs to be twisted. Twist the connector and take out the bulb. Blow away all the dust from the bulb and the connector and attach them back again. You have solved your problem!
The car headlights receive their power through the safety of a fuse. When the fuse blows, it does not allow electricity to pass to the bulb, therefore, the low beam headlight will not work.
Fix: The headlight fuse is located inside the fuse box in your engine bay. Usually, the fuse box is found on the top right side of the engine bay. When you open it, you find a number of fuses and relays inside. It could be confusing to find the right fuse, but fortunately, you get a map which can lead you to the right fuse. Simply remove that fuse and replace it with a new one.

While you’re busy preparing for another holiday season, don’t let car care take a back seat. Neglected auto care almost always means much higher costs down the road in the form of more extensive repairs or lost resale value. The non-profit Car Care Council recommends that you be car care aware to ensure your car doesn’t gobble up your hard-earned money.
“If you’re like most people, you’re busier than ever this time of year and may find yourself putting off vehicle maintenance,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “It’s important to remember that routine auto care means big savings by improving fuel economy, extending vehicle life and reducing the chance of costly car trouble.”
The Car Care Council suggests a quick vehicle check to help avoid the unplanned expense of a breakdown when traveling by car this holiday season.
Check the tires, including tire pressure and tread. Uneven wear indicates a need for wheel alignment. Tires should also be checked for bulges and bald spots. Check all fluids, including engine oil, power steering and brake and transmission, as well as windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant. Check the hoses and belts that can become cracked, brittle, frayed, loose or show signs of excessive wear. These are critical to the proper functioning of the electrical system, air conditioning, power steering and the cooling system. Check lighting to identify any problems with exterior and interior lighting, as the chance of an accident increases if you can’t see or be seen. Check wipers. Wiper blades should be replaced every six months. Make sure the windshield wipers are working properly and keep the reservoir filled with solvent. The Car Care Council also recommends that motorists restock their emergency kit. To save on fuel costs during the trip, the council suggests that motorists avoid aggressive driving, observe the speed limit and avoid excessive idling. Gas caps that are damaged, loose or missing should be replaced to prevent gas from spilling or evaporating.
The Car Care Council’s free personalized schedule and email reminder service is a simple way to help you take better care of your vehicle this holiday season and throughout the year. It is an easy-to-use resource designed to help you drive smart, save money and make informed decisions.
The Car Care Council is the source of information for the “Be Car Care Aware” consumer education campaign promoting the benefits of regular vehicle care, maintenance and repair to consumers.

Chongqing Feilong Jiangli collects the latest information for you, so that you can get the most cutting-edge technical information. With the development of autopilot technology in the direction of wider application, it has made a lot of progress in imaging. However, a technical challenge associated with improving safety is the ability of a self driving vehicle to not have a strong ability to observe the surrounding corners.
Imaging and sensing are the key technologies of automatic driving, and also the key areas of 3D laser scanning system, such as lidar (optical detection and ranging). Such a system allows automatic driving vehicles to detect and avoid obstacles by using rotating laser beams to drive safely. However, the current imaging technology needs to be improved in order to improve the performance of the self driving vehicle. According to foreign media reports, researchers at Boston University have conducted a study to develop a new method that allows artificial intelligence components in autonomous driving vehicles to see the corners of vehicles around the University.
Researchers at Boston University have succeeded in making autonomous vehicles perceive the surrounding corners without using advanced optical devices. The technology is based on a standard digital camera and a special algorithm called "computational periscope".
It works like a toy periscope, a device consisting of two mirrors or prisms that allow people to see objects blocked by obstacles. Although the technology does not rely on mirroring, the principle is similar. The algorithm developed by Boston University uses the fact that light can be reflected from structures similar to walls in different modes to assess the degree of disorder created by different objects. The main task of the AI component is to interpret the scattered reflection image.

Recently, Chevrolet introduced a 2019 Silverado 1500 1:1 size Lego model, which is 72 inches high (about 1829mm), 240 inches long (about 6096mm), 96 inches wide (about 2438mm). It costed 18 people for more than 2,000 hours and was completed by hand picking and installing 334,544 LEGO. The most common building block is the 2X8 stud brick. At the end of the day, the Lego Silverado weighed 3,307 pounds (about 1,500 kg), and it was very surprising that there were work lights and very fine details in this model.
