How much does it cost to fix a tail light

When you are driving down a dark deserted highway at night, if you see another car with its lights on, you should also turn your lights on. If you hear the sound of sirens, pull over to the side of the road. A police officer will come to talk to you. He or she may give you a ticket for having a broken light. The cost of fixing the light depends on what kind of car you have and how many lights need to be fixed.

Tail Light Replacement Cost

When a bulb goes out on your tail light it will cost around $20 to replace. If the assembly needs to be replaced, the cost can vary greatly, depending on what kind of car you drive and where you get it fixed. You can pay anywhere between $200-$2000 for each assembly. If you do it yourself, the cost could be down to around $30-$250 per assembly.

Common Tail Light Problems

Inside the light bulb is a wire that creates light. This wire is called the filament. If you want to find out if a light bulb is bad, take it out of the socket and look at the filament. If it's broken, you will need to replace the bulb. If you change the bulb and it still doesn't work, there may be something wrong with how it's put together.

A Bad Fuse

The fuse box is the first place you should check when something electrical isn't working. A fuse is a piece of metal that breaks if the current flowing through it is too high. This can be a good thing because it protects other components of the electrical system from damage. A fuse box may be located in different places in your house.

You can find the main fuse box for your car under the hood. It is a black box with a lot of wires coming out of it. To get to the fuses, you just have to take off the cover. The second place you should look is inside the car, on the front passengers' side. You will find it behind a plastic panel that is usually found underneath the dash. If you can't find it there, sometimes you have to open the passenger door all the way.

Bad tail light fuse

There are different fuses in your car. Each one is connected to a different electrical component. You can find where each fuse goes and what it does by taking off the cover and looking. You can also find this information in your owner's manual or online. 

When you find the fuse for the car's tail lights, you can test it with a circuit tester to see if it is good. If it doesn't light up, you should replace the fuse with another one that has the same amperage. If you look closely at a bad fuse, sometimes you can see that the metal wire is broken.
