Headlight Alternatives?

My right headlight went out today, when I went to turn them on my low beam and side marker light (right side) didn't turn on.

Should I replace the bulb or do something else? don't want to break the bank, and I want something reliable. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Re: Headlight Alternatives?

Uh.. its a little weird that both the headlight and the side marker went out..

check your fuses!
then
go buy replacements for the bulbs that dont work.
see if that fixes it.
if it doesn't then you got another problem somewhere.
not really sure what it could be. but start with the basics...

Yeah, I went and bought replacement bulbs today. The side marker bulbs are 168, right? I have two of those, and an H1 ST bulb for the low beam. It is kinda weird that they went out on the same day, thought. I'll check the fuses and do everything while my windows are getting tinted tomorrow.

I was thinking about getting HID's, but its not worth it to me if I'm not even going to keep it and upgrade it. The new tint is going on just because it needs to be re-tinted. The old is peeling off really bad, now.

Re: Headlight Alternatives?

Did you replace the bulbs? Did it fix it?

Yeah, the side markers are 168. Same as the ones in the high beam. (The parking light bulb)

I learned this the hard way on my 1st day of buying my prelude haha. The whole socket was missing and had to go take one off a 94-97 accord at a junk yard and buy new bulbs but anyways..

I need to tint my windows.. I've been meaning to. But the korean guy i go to has been closed lately.. he only charges 20bucks a window + a little more for the back.

Re: Headlight Alternatives?

Havent replaced them yet, but I have them. I'm going to put them in when im getting the tint. Your saying that the low beams are 168? no man that cant be true. I think you mean the daytime running lights/parking lights.

But the guy that is doing my tint is well know by everyone in Lake Jackson, and he does mobile tinting, so he comes to your house. he also doesn't care if your tint is legal or not, so you can do whatever. I'm staying legal, though. I don't want any trouble with the cops.

No no.. Low beam is H1.. High beam is H1. RIGHT NEXT to the high beam bulb is a 168 Parking light bulb.. then you got your 7440 turn signal down below.. and another 168 bulb on your side as a side marker..

haha i already got a tint ticket in my girls car >.>... oh well. i think im still going to go with 20%
