Frequently Asked Questions Ask APW
How hard is it to replace the tail lights of a Nissan Titan?
Answer: Replacing the tail lights on a Titan is a job that even relatively new car owners can accomplish. The screws securing the tail light assembly to the back of the Titan are easily accessible and can be removed with ease. After that, there is just a small matter of disconnecting the electrical wires before the whole assembly can finally be removed. The new tail lights should easily fit into the housing, especially if they are OEM made, making installation a breeze.
Is it illegal to drive on the freeway with faulty tail lights?
Answer: Yes, it is illegal to do so on the freeway and on any other public road. Driving with malfunctioning tail lights will most likely earn anyone a traffic violation, resulting in some pretty steep fines. More than being illegal, driving in such a condition could result in a serious accident that could embroil the offender in a criminal offense if anyone else is injured or killed.
Is it illegal to have smoked aftermarket tail lights installed?
Answer: If any modification done to a car's tail light impairs the function of the same tail light, then it is prohibited. Tail lights can be smoked, but they must remain visible to other drivers on the highway. Many states set a maximum distance that these tail lights must be visible in. A call to the DMV would be wise before changing the tail lights in any way.
What are the most common causes of a tail light malfunction?
Answer: A remarkably common but easily overlooked cause of a tail light malfunction is a loose connection. Another common cause is a faulty or shorted wire. A burned out tail light bulb, on the other hand, usually affects a lot of the older vehicles.
