How to Check all your exterior lights

Car Lights And Bulbs Check

When it comes to basic car maintenance, making sure that all your exterior lights are working should be a top priority.

Checking your exterior lights is very simple to do and you’ll just need one extra person to help you.

Have your friend stand in front of the vehicle whilst you sit in the driver’s seat.

One by one turn each of your lights on and off asking your friend to signal that they’re all working correctly.

Lights to check at the front of your car:

  • Daylight running
  • Side lights
  • Dip beams
  • Fog lights
  • Main beam
  • Left hand indicator
  • Right hand indicator
  • Hazard lights

Then do the same at the rear of the car.

Lights to check at the rear of your car:

  • Side lights
  • Fog lights
  • Left-hand indicator
  • Right-hand indicator
  • Brake light
  • Reverse light
  • Hazard warning lights

If all looks great, then you’re good-to-go, but if you notice a bulb that looks dull or blown then don’t hesitate to get in touch with your local dealership
