Symptoms of Bad Chevrolet Camaro Tail Lights
Tail lights are important in ensuring that the Camaro's driving experience is always safe. Without these indicators, it's difficult for other drivers to know if you're braking, turning, or going in reverse. Problems in these assemblies may result to other drivers getting confused as to what your driving intentions are. The first moment you experience any trouble with the assembly, work on them as soon as possible to avoid inconveniences and accidents. Here are some of the symptoms that tell you have a problem with the Chevrolet Camaro's tail lights:
When it comes to tail lights that won't turn on, or two assemblies that emit different intensities of light, worn and old bulbs are always the top suspects. Replacing these with new ones can solve the problem. If it still persists even after the replacement, it's possible that the sockets holding the bulbs in place are loose or wrongly attached. Make sure that all ends have clean, proper, and tight connections to ensure that electricity freely flows through the wires and circuits. Also check that the ground cables are properly connected for the lights to function. Fuses may also be wet due to unfavorable weather and operating conditions. A problematic switch has also been reported to cause problems with the assembly.
Melted fuses immediately mean lights that won't work. If this happens, make sure that you are using ones that can carry the right ampere rating specified for the Camaro's tail lights. It's very likely that the wires' insulation has melted. The result is a short circuit that also affects the fuses' condition.
The insides of the tail lights should be free from any form of water and condensation. Wet tail light assemblies lead to fog on the lenses, corrosion on the housing, possible shorts, and other problems you want to avoid. Any sign of liquid means the gaskets are worn. This greatly helps keep water out of the lights before liquid damages and shorts the circuits and wires. The contact between light and body may also be loose enough to allow water inside. The housing and the car's body should be tight to prevent any breaching from happening.
