You have 12 volt globes that are 50 watts power. Check out a home improvement store/lighting store for a replacement.

I need replacement globe for light kit.

If it is the type with the triangle shaped base there are only two types available direct from Hunter. I replaced the entire light kit on mine when the globes started to fail due to excess heat and the tips of the triangles started to break off causing the globes to fall at random.

My car headlights are still work but I do not know why it does not have enough 12 volt

Do you mean the voltage is down below 12V? Your headlights may be dim because

- globes are failing, causing a dark film to form inside the glass. Replace them with good name brand globes

- corroded contacts in the globe mounting. Pull the contact housing off and on a few times to scrap the contacts

- low voltage at the contacts. Remove a contact housing, start the engine, turn on the lights, and measure the voltage available at the contacts. It should be 12V or at higher. If not, the battery charging circuit and alternator require inspection.

- poor grounding at the headlight. The bulb circuit may be grounded by a return wire or through the bulb mounting direct to the chassis. Measure the electrical resistance between the metal flange where the bulb sits and the metal chassis. It should be low, about 0.1 - 0.3 ohm

- tarnished headlight reflector, or clouded outer lens. Autozone and similar places sell kits which claim to allow restoration of these. Expect limited success I think

There is an orange pilot light on the instrument panel in the image of a car with lights at the back of the car image what is this a sign of

The light is probably indicating that one or more of the tail light or brake light globes has a burnt out filament. Check all globes in the tail light assemblies and if any have a brown or black or silvery deposit on the inside of the glass, then they are on the way out and should be replaced. When checking / replacing the globes ckeck that the globes are snug in the metal holders and there is no corrosion which could cause a bad connection. Clean if necessary.

It sounds like one or more of the light globes is not working. The easiest way to check them is to turn on hazard switch and then make sure all are working. If any need replacing ensure the correct wattage globes are used. If after replacing globes and some are still not working, It could be a bad earth connection in the light fitting. First, check how well the metal base of the globe fits into the socket. If it is a bit loose remove the globe, squeeze the sides of the metal socket with some pliers so that the globe fits snugly in the socket. If it is still not working correctly, check the earth wire that runs from the globe socket and any connectors in the wiring loom near the Light Assemblies as well as where the earth wire is attached to the body. If necessary, remove, clean thoroughly by removing any corrosion or paint and re-attach securely.

Three years ago installed more than 30 recessed halogen 12V 50W lamps in the ceilings during renovations. Have since spent a large amount calling the electrician to change the transformers when this or...

it was a mistake to install them in first place, now, if your transformer blows, that meant that it is overloaded!

primary solutionto the problem, without adding cost of re-wiring will be change globes (50w) to these of lower wattage, say 40w or even less and this will protect transformers from blowing up.

another solution will be to what is load on the transformer, it must be at least 20% greater than combined light supported. if it is not, then duiring power fluctuation it can, and will be burn out.

say, you have 30 lights and 3 switches, this meant that you have three circuits of say 10 lights. 10lights x 50w = 500wat!!! that is rather large and costly transformer, to avoid this prohibitive cost, solve problem otherways, buy 120watt or 150watt transformer and wire two globes to each. this will provide margin as well as enough supply to support your light.

please bear in mind that you are legally not allowed to touch anything what is connected to mains except changing the globe! you need to speak with elelctrician and come to solution in cooperation with eleloctrician.

if you find this advice useful, please do not hesitate to leave comment and vote for me, thanx!

Reverse lights only work sometimes on isuzu wizzard

Manual gearbox: check on right hand side of gearbox. There's an electrical switch(looks like large nut nut) with 2 wires coming out of it These wires have connectors toward the top of the gearbox, diconnect them.
The wires that this switch was connected to, conect them to each other. ie the reverse light switch has been bypassed. Put the vehicle in reverse. Turn on the ignition. DO NOT START. Check the reverse lights. If on the switch is faulty and needs to be replaced. If not measure the voltage across each of the wires and a good earth point. (Gearbox casing will do fine. ) One of the wires should read < 12V.
If 12V then
  • Globes are faulty(Replace)
  • wiring to the globes are faulty - unlikely -(This can be repaired by simply running a new wire to the globes)
If no 12V then the wiring to the fusebox is faulty. A quick fix is to run a new wire from the fusebox to the switch(Connect to fuse C-3, indicated as "turn, back")
