- LED bulbs provide better functionality in colder weather conditions as well, adding to their multitude of benefits.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT REVERSE/BACK-UP LIGHTSAre brake lights and reverse lights the same?
- Although these terms are commonly used interchangeably, brake lights and reverse lights are actually not the same.
- In fact, they have different functions and are different colors.
- Brake lights are red in color and used to indicate when a car is slowing down or stopping.
- Conversely, reverse lights are white in color. They are utilized to indicate when a vehicle is backing up/reversing, or preparing to do so.
- One way to make your car or truck’s reverse lights shine brighter is to upgrade your current bulbs to an LED model.
- LED reverse light bulbs shine brighter than factory-grade halogen bulbs, which tend to dull and dim over time, eventually producing a yellowed-out glow that can’t penetrate the darkness like longer-lasting LED bulbs can.
- If you already have LED bulbs installed and are worried about their functionality, check (or have a professional check them out) to see that they are correctly installed and performing properly.
- Driving without properly functioning reverse lights is not a smart idea—for you as well as others on the road.
- Although it is not against the law to operate your personal vehicle without reverse lights—as they’re deemed “optional”—failing to do so could easily result in an otherwise avoidable mishap on the road, in a parking lot, etc.
- Why risk it? To be as responsible as possible, make sure your car or truck has reliable, properly functioning reverse lights.
- It is possible to wire a reverse light to a backup camera.
- Doing so increases your visibility when driving, thus enhancing your level of safety, as well as the safety of others.
- First, you’ll need to obtain a backup camera and determine where to mount it.
- Disconnect your car battery and install the reversing camera.
- Reconnect the car battery and you should be good to go.
- Not sure how to complete this task on your own, or not totally confident in your abilities? Take your car to a professional to ensure correct installation.
- Every vehicle is a little different.
- Most vehicles have two screws or pull-out rivers that need to be removed.
- Once those are removed you can pull out the taillight and access the socket.
- Remove the electrical connector by squeezing the clips and pulling it toward you.
- Place the entire rear light on a flat, safe surface—do it carefully!
- Now you’re ready to install the new light in its place.
- As always, consult with an auto professional with any questions, concerns, or for additional assistance.
