you most likely have a wrong brake light bulb. if the bulb is a different wattage it will still work but the bulb warning light will still illuminate.

Tip

Fitting aftermarket HID (xenon) headlights to any brand of car


HID headlights are one of the best modifications you can make to a car. When they first came out, they were very expensive, but now the costs are extremely reasonable ($60-80 including shipping from a variety of sources online, somewhat higher if your car has one bulb that gives both low and high beams). The light output is about 3 1/2 times the intensity of halogen headlights, the bulbs have a lifespan to rival the car itself, and yet they draw less power than a standard halogen bulb (35w vs the 55w of a typical halogen bulb).

First off, how does it work? The system includes a pair of bulbs and a pair of power ballasts to drive them. Unlike a halogen bulb, which is a glass globe with a physical filament in it (which heats up to glowing when current passes through), an HID bulb has no filament. It functions much the same as an arc welder. At either end of a glass tube with a globe in the center, is an electrode. The center globe is filled with a combination of elements, among which is xenon gas. The power ballast is basically a transformer, which takes the 12 volt input from your car and boosts it tremendously. Xenon gas lights need an initial surge of over 22,000 volts to ignite, and a steady 75-85 volts to stay lit. The transformer in the power ballast steps up your 12 volt car voltage to these levels to drive the lights. However, the current is very, very low, and the result is a power draw of only 35 watts, a lot lower than the power draw of halogen lights. When the ballast fires that initial starting voltage, the electricity arcs between the electrodes in the bulb, through the xenon globe, molecularly exciting the xenon gas and causing it to emit light.

Some cars require an additional relay harness that connects directly to the battery to turn the lights on, but most do not. Your vendor should be able to tell you if your car will need this additional harness.

There are a few things to know before you order. First, you need to know what type of bulb your car has. Remove a headlight bulb and look for the number stamped on the base of the bulb. Many Japanese and GM cars use 9006-style bulbs for low beams. German cars like Audi and VW often use an H7 bulb. You'll need to know this for your car, so you can order your HID bulbs properly.

Next, you'll need the color temperature. The temperature, or "warmth", of the light is described in degrees Kelvin. Any manufacturer that offers HID lights as standard or optional equipment, puts out kits with a color temperature of 4300K (4300 degrees Kelvin). Again, this is a measurement of color, NOT of physical temperature. They offer 4300K bulbs because natural sunlight/daylight is very close to that color, and from behind the wheel, the combination of light color and light intensity rivals that of daylight. It's also a color that is easy on the eyes, and long night drives are more relaxing than with the yellowed halogen light - I've found that I feel less fatigued with HID lights than with halogens.

With color temperature, the higher the number, the more blue the light gets. The lower the number, the more it trends to yellow (a 3000K HID kit in your foglights would be a blazing yellow/amber color, great for cutting through rain, driving snow, or fog). 4300K light is very crystalline white on the road. Moving upward through 5000K and 6000K kits, you'll get a richer white with tinges of blue. I have had 4300K and 5000K in past cars, and currently have 6000K HIDs in my Audi. I like the 6000K best, but that's personal preference, although it does seem to have the fullest light.

Going beyond 6000K, you start getting into a seriously blue spectrum, and this is not recommended - sure it looks cool, but blue is one of the worst colors for visual definition, and does not penetrate distance nearly as well as the whiter colors of the spectrum. Going to 10,000K and above makes the light almost purple - again, cool for looks, but lousy for driving.

That's about all there is to know, other than the fact that HIDs will give your car a great look, and will blow you away with the visibility improvement. I've been modifying cars for a long time, and consistently, HIDs have been one of the best functional and aesthetic improvements I've made to any of them. And if your eyesight is somewhat compromised, or you drive a lot of unlit back roads, they're going to seem like an answer from heaven for your driving:)

What does yellow sun symbol on dashboard indicate?


Headlights failure.
If the yellow symbol appear as soon as you turn on the dashboard, stop's light bulbs may be the problem.
If the yellow symbol appear when you switch-on lights, the problem may comes from the position's light bulbs.
Ensure that all of the light bulbs are fully working.

In the instrument panel there's this yellow light of a car with flashes coming from the back while i'm driving


You have a bulb in the rear of your car that is blown. Try turning the car off then back on without pressing the brakes. If the light does not come on, press your brake pedal down and then check to see if the light appears again. If it doesn't, your brake lights are okay. Next turn your park/headlights on. If the light appears in the panel, you have a blown rear bulb. The light will come on if any of the rear bulbs are blown so you will have to visually check it while the lights are on to see which one is defective. It's best checked at night or right before sunset so you can easily see which bulb needs to be replaced.

Warning Lights


Are your hazards lights on? I don't know your car but The triangle most of the time is hazards lights. Now when you turn your key on all the light should come on then go off, If on stays on in some cases it could be just a bulb. To check your Bulbs use you turn singles / blinkers. You can get them on by turning key to on with out starting car. Then turn on our left by pushing switch down first. Check driver side front & rear. Then check passenger side by switching to the right switch up. Good luck

When shifting into Drive there a yellow (!)


The ! (sits in a U shaped icon) indicates uneven or low tire pressure. This could also contribute to the steering wheel shaking, although that usually indicates tires out of balance or suspension out of alignment.
