Led headlights

Asked by Jul 20, 2017 at 05:46 PM about the 2008 Honda Civic DX

Question type: General

Just got a new set of led headlights, I'm driving a
2008 Honda Civic dx. After installation the light
doesn't come on, just gets really hot and starts
melting itself, what would be a reason this would be
happening? Thanks

your headlights are not designed for LED lights. LEDs draw minimal power compared to halogens. It's likely the car is oversupplying the LEDs with power and causing them to melt. Take them out ASAP and use regular halogens or change your housings out to a new set of headlights that are designed for LED lights.

Crappy aftermarket LED bulbs are a major problem. You can get good ones but check reviews. I use LED back up lights and they are great but they are not on all the time.

Sounds like you got the wrong ones, the numbers must match your stock bulbs, if you have projector lamps LED's they wont work, you must stick with projectors.

led headlight relatively stable,Low heat i'm aslo driving Honda Civic10,Changed novsight led headight is good.
