Want to learn more about Indicator Light Bulb changes in Manchester?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does an indicator bulb do?

Indicator lights are mounted around the car, on each corner and the side wings, and sometimes even in the door mirror units and advise other road users of your directional change intentions. The light units are usually illuminated by a single bulb, which is clear in the case of amber coloured lenses or amber in the case of clear lenses.

How does an indicator bulb work?

indicators come on once the circuit is connected by the driver using the indicator control stalk. The power then either goes through a relay which clicks on and off to provide the “winking” effect or through the body control unit to do the same.

The hazard warning switch works in a similar way but through a different route in order to use all the indicator bulbs and not just those on one side.

How do you know something is wrong with your indicator bulb(s)?

  • On some vehicles the indicators will start to flash much quicker if a bulb is out
  • With some models you may get a bulb out warning on the dashboard
  • You are advised during a routine service
  • The vehicle fails the MOT on a faulty indicator.
  • You are advised verbally by someone, maybe even a police officer!

When should you consider an Indicator Light Bulb replacement?

Over time, the indicator light bulbs can simply fail. In many cases, though, it can be that there are other issues why a bulb fails to work properly. Fuses can blow, the wiring's condition can deteriorate or connectors and sockets can fail due to corrosion or heat, which prevents a good electrical connection.

Considering the risks of driving with defective indicator lights it is important to have the defective rear lamps inspected as soon as possible and, if necessary, have the bulb replaced.

How common is an indicator bulb replacement?

Over a vehicles lifetime you would expect to have to change at least two or three bulbs, the same as any other bulbs

What can I do to extend the lifetime of an indicator bulb?

Apart from visually inspecting the indicator light unit for cracks and any water ingress, there is not a lot you can do.

What happens during an indicator bulb replacement?

  • Mechanic will inspect the faulty light unit, fuses, wires, sockets and the bulb.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the faulty indicator bulb.
  • Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will test the light(s) again to ensure the lights function properly.
