The winter months mean cold temperatures and slick streets, but they also mean shorter periods of daylight. During this time it’s important to know some signs of wear on your Chevy headlights and taillights. These lights not only help you see better and further, they also help people see you.
Cold temperatures affect your battery, so make sure you have a strong battery. This will help keep your headlights and taillights strong. Another aspect that is often overlooked is cleaning your headlights and taillights. While some may not wash their vehicle as frequently during the winter months, keeping those headlights and taillights clean will increase your visibility.
In the event that your headlights and/or taillights have gone out replacing them in a timely manner is critically. Not only do you want to have full visibility again, but you don’t want to keep non-working parts in your vehicle. A dead bulb may create excess corrosion and damage the socket or wiring. Each Chevy vehicle is a bit different in how the lights are housed, so make sure to check your owner’s manual to find out the specifics of you vehicle. Or you can always take your vehicle to your local Chevy service center and have the lights replaced by a Certified Service Technician with genuine GM parts.
Your headlights and taillights are an extension of your eyes on the road. Make sure you take care of them so that you stay safe this winter and throughout the year.
And HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
