Frequently Asked Questions Ask APW
Are all Honda Civic tail lights legal?
Answer: If the Honda Civic tail light replacement is bought from a trusted online store and is DOT and SAE approved, there is a higher probability that the replacement Honda Civic tail light is legal. However, there is such a thing called tail light tinting that makes certain tail lights unacceptable. Although tail light tinting law varies from one state to another, the general rule states that all tail lights, including Honda Civic tail lights, must be visible from at least 500 feet away.
How are the LED and Euro Honda Civic tail lights different from the regular Honda Civic tail lights?
Answer: Light Emitting Diodes or LEDs are one of the latest trends in tail light technology. Honda Civic LED tail lights are more radiantly colorful, brighter, more noticeable, and have longer life spans than the regular tail lights of most Honda Civic models. They are also available in various design patterns.
How can Honda Civic tail lights be customized?
Answer: Since most car owners change their tail lights both for repair and vanity, Honda Civic tail lights are available in different types and designs. Aside from the regular, custom-fit tail lights that are especially made for specific Honda Civic models, tinting options as well as LED and Euro tail lights are being offered to Honda Civic owners.
Is it normal for the Honda Civic tail lights to not shut off?
Answer: No. Tail lights in general should go on and off depending on your car's movements. If your Honda Civic tail lights and/or brake lights won't shut off, the usual culprits are the tail light switch and a short circuit in one of the tail light lines. These problems are often solved by replacing the tail light switch, which is very easy to do, and by replacing the entire tail light assembly. Most drivers and car enthusiasts favor the second option since changing the tail light assembly is inexpensive and more practical than changing just the defective part.
