Frequently Asked Questions Ask APW
A fix-it ticket was issued by the police for driving with a Honda Odyssey with broken tail lights. What should be done in order to lift this violation?
Answer: After receiving a fix-it ticket, the driver must not use the Honda Odyssey until the tail lights are fixed. Tail light replacement is a pretty easy task because tail light assemblies that are made specifically for the Odyssey are available in the market. These light fixtures can be fitted directly to the car by following very simple procedures. After successfully replacing the tail lights, the driver should drive the car to the police station and bring any proof that can attest that the tail lights have already been changed. The driver may use the official receipt of the part bought. If the auto was brought to a certified Honda dealer, a certificate of voucher from the company can also be used. The police would then inspect and validate if the tail lamps are working fine. If no other problem arises, the violation will be lifted.
Among the fuses in a Honda Odyssey, which one is possibly busted if the tail lights are not working?
Answer: The fuse that makes the horn work is the same fuse that powers the tail lights. The best way to check this fuse's condition is to test the horns. If the horns are working, it is possible that the problem is coming from the bulbs or the wire connectors. The bulbs must be replaced immediately and the wires must be properly connected to the harness.
What are the most efficient ways to prolong the life span of the tail lights in a Honda Odyssey?
Answer: Every day, the tail lights are exposed to vibrations and shocks around the Odyssey's rear bumper. The bulbs may get loose from the socket because of the constant motion whenever the car is moving. To know if the bulbs are still well connected to their sockets, a careful inspection is important. Taking the lens or cover out allows the car owner to see the components inside the lighting fixture clearly. Even the small electrical wires can be examined thoroughly if they have rust. Early detection of corroded wires can prevent further damage in the lighting system. The tail light lens or covers must always be clean and scratch free. In removing water marks and other stains, an ordinary household soap can be used. These are some of the simple ways to help the tail lights last longer.
