Audi Lights

By: Kalin

As we all know lights are important no matter where you are. Sunlight is the very thing that makes the day and during night we need all the artificial lighting sources to help us see. The artificial light is the resource which we need when the Sunlight is not present. This is exactly the case when we are on the road at night. We need to see a few very important things out there: where we are going, where others are going and the way they are moving. We should be able to see if someone is crossing the road or another vehicle is stopping right in front of us. We also should see that on time in order to adjust to the new situation.
Audi tail lights are made to provide very specific information that is critical when we are on the road. However there are some cases which will prevent these important light sources from providing the light we require.
When the tail lights are aging they will corrode like everything else which is based on metal. The problem with corrosion is that it will "eat" the metal parts of your car because of the oxygen in the air. This is hard to avoid. The only real protection is to prevent the oxygen from reaching the metal surface which is possible only for limited time.
The result could be a bad ground inside the tail lights. The ground is the thing which makes the electricity work. If it is not good enough the lights will begin to flicker and it is possible for them to quickly burn.
One good symptom that the ground problem exists will be to have no light at all. If that happens everyone knows there is a problem. Sometimes other lights are dimming when the tail lights turn on. This could be hard to catch but if you feel that your light is changing be sure to make few tests to see if this is really the case. The lights may pulse too if the blinkers are on.
Of course all these symptoms could be caused by something simple like for example a problem in one or more light bulbs.

This happens because when the light bulbs work they burn. This process is slow but eventually the wire inside of them will burn out. Before that happens completely it will make you some troubles and you should find which one is the bulb causing all the troubles and replace it.
If you check all the bulbs and they are fine you should take another approach. Sometimes replacement of the entire tail light assembly is required. In any case a professional technician could help you determine where the problem is and fix it on time before the damage spreads to other lights.
This could happen too. It happens because if one bulb is not working fine it will reflect to the condition of the other light sources. The first will burn out eventually but when it does others may already be damaged beyond the proper working state. This will reflect to the new one you will put when you replace the not working one. Soon after that the condition of the other lights will worsen and they will damage the new one too causing the entire system to break down.
Avoiding this could be very simple if you check your car in service from time to time. However not many people do that. This is very understandable because a check like this will take time which most of us don't have or don't want to use for these issues.
However you will make your life easier if you learn to see when the light is changing because you will be able to react quickly and prevent bad situations like having no light at all when outside a town during the night.
There are many things that could be said about the fog lights too. You don't use them all the time and it will be good if they work when you need them. They are dependent on a few things but since you can't prevent them from occurring you could do only one thing - check them from to time. It is just like the rest of the lights in your car.
However one very discussed issue today is if we should use LEDs in our Audi or not. LEDs look good but if you ask around you will see that many will tell you that they are not bright enough.
The problem is that they may be right. It is true that for a long time the LED technology made only dim lights and in not many colours. If these old dim lights are used in your car this could be a complete disaster.
This may not be the case if you use LEDs which are from the latest technology on the market. They are bright enough and the light they produce will be cheaper because it will use less energy. They will also last for a long period of time because LEDs are not "burning" through the process of energy transformation - electricity to light.
LEDs come in many colours today and to use them for the interior section of your car could be the best thing you could do about your lighting system. This is exactly the case - you should use LEDs where they can show their best. Of course the interior of the car is important but what will happen on the outside?
To use the LED system for your primary headlight source will not be such a good idea. The reason is not because of their brightness. They are bright but they are directed in only one direction. In order to spread them wider you will need more sources and highly sophisticated system.
When talking about the tail lights on the other hand - LEDs could do the trick. They don't make only one colour light which then should be filtered to become red. The LEDs could make the red light naturally. This is because of the technology they use.
The final conclusion is that LEDs could be fine for everything other than the headlights and fog lights in your car. They will cost less and could be a fine investment.
