Chevrolet Venture Tail Light Assembly

Answering Common Chevrolet Venture Tail Light Assembly Problems

Problems with the tail light assembly are easy to ignore because you don't see it every time you drive. However, it really isn't a valid reason for some states' cops whose job is to place "fix it" tickets on your car or impose very stiff fines. Tail light assembly problems are actually easy to understand, and you can solve it before finding a "fix it" on your car.

Blown lights

Just like any other light in your car, your Chevrolet Venture tail light will also blow out. This isn't really something you can avoid; the bulbs can fail over time and use.

But before you replace the bulb, you need to make sure that it really is the part at fault. Check if the bulb's filament is broken or if the glass is damaged. If one of these is the case, then a replacement is needed.

Lights keep going out

The first thing car owners do when their tail light goes out is replace the bulb. If the tail light goes out again after some time, car owners would still settle for a replacement. If the light goes out just after a week, it is only then that the car owners would suspect a different problem. This should not be the case; not all tail light problems are caused by a blown bulb.

Replacing the bulb is fine, but you need to check the electrical connections as well. In many cases, the problem is caused by faulty wiring. There is a chance that the wirings are bad or that they do not have a good ground. If these things are the ones actually causing the problem and you do not check them, you would likely keep on buying new bulbs every week.

Socket overheats

Most think that the bulb socket is bound to get hot since it is near light. This is true, but there is a thing such as a "too hot" bulb socket. If the socket overheats, it can damage the contacts and loosen the spring tension in the assembly. In worse cases, the socket walls can melt and not be able to hold the bulb in place.

This problem is likely an effect of the bulb socket's quality. Here, you can differentiate the quality of bulbs among brands as well as between the OEM and aftermarket parts.

  • Maintaining the Chevrolet Venture Tail Light Assembly 27 February 2013

    Your Chevrolet Venture tail light assembly is one of the parts most exposed to the environment, making it one of the first victims of wearing out. In time, the assembly can fade, become hazed, or even fall apart altogether. To avoid experiencing these, here are a few ways how you can take care of the assembly:

    Tighten the assembly

    A usual cause for tail light failure is moisture; when moisture enters the assembly, it may affect the performance of the bulbs and even cause the electrical connections to short. The task is not to make sure that no moisture enters the assembly because that would be impossible; the task is to make sure that the moisture is kept at minimum. A way to avoid this is to tighten the bolts holding the tail light assembly. In time (because of age and constant shakes), your Chevrolet Venture tail light assembly will get loose. It is recommended to take a look at the assembly at least twice a year.

    Go for LED lights

    LED lights are very popular among car owners because they are easy to maintain. Unlike the oversized lights that most owners install nowadays to make their vehicle look cool, LED lights tend to last longer and be more resistant to moisture buildup. Thus, car owners do not need to take the assembly apart often-which could cause the assembly to prematurely wear out.

    Wash the lenses regularly

    Dirty or fogged lenses can definitely lessen the brightness of the bulbs in the tail light assembly. And like any other dirt problems, the only way to solve this is to regularly clean the assembly.

    It is recommended to use automotive soap when washing. A good round of wiping will remove the dirt as well as prevent dust from building up.

    Use sandpaper

    If you want to take extra care of the lenses, we recommend that you use sandpaper after washing them. And by sandpaper, we mean one that was soaked in automotive soap, not one straight from the package, wise guy. Wiping the lenses with soaped sandpaper thoroughly cleans and polishes the assembly. However, remember to wipe the sandpaper from side to side and not in a circular motion-this can damage the lenses.
