Acura sedans and SUVs come with lighting galore from the factory, but headlights are the commonest type. A headlamp can be of two kinds. Low beams are one. They light the way adequately in most driving conditions and through most weather. High beams are another. They shine wider than low-beam headlights. This helps you see better when it's dark and there's no oncoming traffic. Many headlights double as hazard lights, too. These are better known as flashers. They warn drivers nearby of problems or dangerous situations on the road, and they can signal that you're in distress.
Some Acura models have headlights that also build in fog lights. They shine low to brighten the road and your surroundings better in bad weather, with minimal glare.
Kinds of Headlights
OEM Acura headlights can be one of three lamp types. One is halogen. It's the most common. Another is Xenon. These lights are also known as high-intensity discharge, or HID. Most sports cars have them because they allow installation in narrow headlight housings. The last is LED. They're energy-efficient, and they put out very little heat.
What headlights your Acura needs depend on its body style, but when to change a car light bulb depends on its type. Replace a Xenon headlight when it weakens. That's about every three years. Change an LED headlight if it goes out or its electronics fail. Change a halogen headlight every two years at least.
