Nissan Titan Tail Light Assembly
Usual Problems of Your Nissan Titan Tail Light Assembly
Your Nissan Titan tail light assembly may fail to work anytime-sometimes even without your knowledge-and may experience a corroded socket, an unlit bulb, or a leaking assembly. But what's important is that you know what to do should you experience any of the tail light assembly problem. To help prepare you, here are some troubleshooting tips:
You may be wondering why your tail light assemblies sometimes have problems lighting up. You may see only one assembly giving a red glow or notice that both of them fail to light up. Now, this is a high-risk problem as your truck may not be seen at night by other drivers, which can cause a road accident. In this case, you may need to first check the bulbs inside your assemblies because chances are they've just already blown. However, you must keep in mind that you only do this if just either one of the two tail lights fails to work. Should both of them malfunction, your truck may be dealing with a blown fuse or an electrical problem with the wiring. Checking the fuse and fixing any bad wiring on your pickup should make both of your tail light assemblies work.
Corroded bulb sockets
Another problem you may encounter is a corroded bulb socket that greatly affects the function of your tail lights. The corrosion that has developed on the sockets can stop the bulb from working and may even damage the bulb or the wire. You can choose to clean the corroded socket using a dry brush or abrasive pad. Just make sure that you completely remove any corrosion and that the socket is dry before you reattach the bulb. However, you just have to simply replace it to have a working tail light assembly again should the corrosion be severe.
The seals on your tail light assemblies can be damaged overtime. As a result, water can seep through the cracks and stay inside the assemblies, causing the bulb socket to corrode and the lenses to get oxidized. To prevent water from getting trapped inside, which eventually will cause further problems, you need to cover the cracks on the seals with silicone. In this way, you're protecting your lenses and sockets from getting damaged by water.
