What is the maximum wattage bulb that you can put in the Langston 60" ceiling fan light kit? It comes with 2 - 13 watt CFL bulbs. They are not bright enough, so we would like to make it brighter.


Get new LED lamps with low wattage and high brightness values. Additionally, the LED bulbs last a long time and use far less electrical energy than standard bulbs.

What are the various types of Landscape lighting and where can I buy such accessories from?


Lighting is of many different types and some of the types that I know are the Path Lighting, Deck Lighting, Security Lighting and the Garden Lighting as well. They all help to create a different vibe and ambiance in our home, or wherever we set it. Out of which the Path lights are the most common type of landscape light and are great for adding ambiance to a walking path or stairway because these are typically used to accent, it's recommended that you use low voltage lights. And I believe that the Outdoor LED spotlights and other high-wattage bulbs can be too harsh too!. I often buy these accessories from the Lowe's store and I use the Lowes Coupon for my purchase. I would recommend you to try it out as well.

Can the use of a higher wattage headlamp bulb damage the regulator?


NO
bulbs have nothing to do with regulators
regulators control the voltage of the alternator and therefore the amperage output of the alternator
what higher wattage bulbs will do
if you have plastic reflectors , they will melt the reflectors
if you run too high a wattage bulbs , you will burn the wiring harness to the lights as the current draw will exceed the wire capacity to handle the amps
if you have current 55/65 head light h4 bulbs then going up to 55/85 will be about as high a wattage you can go before you have to consider relays for each bulb and the reflector quality

I have a 2006 civic SI. DRL indicator is on, driver side low and high beam ok. Passenger side low beam ok but DRL and hi beam not working. Any help is appreciated.


When either the high or low beam light is out in either side, DRL (daytime running lights) indicator will come on. When one bulb goes out, that's a clue the opposite bulb will burn out soon, so its best to replace both bulbs. If it was a fuse issue, both left and right side would be out. If driver side is OK but passenger side is not, then its a bulb issue. A 2006 Honda civic takes 9006 (HB4) low beam bulbs and 9005 (HB3) high beam bulbs. Cheapest is online from Walmart site-2-store. After procuring, wear latex, vinyl, or ANY gloves to keep your (corrosive) oil skin from coming in contact with headlight glass bulbs. Your skin oil will chemically react and cause shorter life span on glass bulbs. Instruction don't tell you this, so you handle with your hands, then need to replace bulbs 3 years later instead of 5 years (or more) in the future. With gloves on, pop the hood and look behind each headlight. Turn counter clockwise to unlock headlight bulb holders. Its a quarter to half turn to unlock bulb holder lock. Replace one bulb at a time so you don't confuse high beam from low beam. The wire has a tab you need to lift to pull out & disconnect wire connector. You might need a slim narrow-**** (NOT phillips) screwdriver to lift the tab; or use your house key. Snap the wire connector to the new bulb, then twist into headlight housing to secure bulb holders, then move on to the next bulb to repeat the procedure. Pict below, 9005 high beam is on the left, 9006 low beam is on the right. Handle by grasping the plastic base, not the glass bulbs. The raised potrusion on the bottom center is where the tab locks onto wire connector. Replace all 4 bulbs now, but in the future, its likely the low beam will wear out before the high beam. In the future, replace only the pair, not all 4. The factory installs inferior bulbs that go out sooner, hoping you'll take to dealership and they ******** you with higher parts-n-labor fees. As opposed to Walmart online site-2-store, it would cost you AT LEAST triple in parts & labor from dealership to replace all 4 headlight bulbs :-(

I turned the lights on the high setting for a couple of hours, and the bulb just blew out. I then touched the top of the hood and it was very hot. Should a bulb blow out for no reason? I am worried that...


Check the documentation and make sure the wattage on the light bulb does not exceed what is recommended. For instance: Mine says no more than 75 watts incandescent light bulb.

Timer on my 200W transformer is working but lights will not turn on manually or by timer. when i turn on with manual switch they flash on for a second then turn off. i am just under 200W for total...


You posted under Intermatic-malibu power packs.
Wattage of bulbs must match wattage of power pack or bulbs and power pack will burn out.

Your power pack might be damaged beyond repair.

My low voltage landscape lights are constantly going on and off once the timer activates them initially. I suspect there is a short somewhere, but is there a good way to locate the short besides pulling up...


Your transformer must have output greater of the total wattage required of the entire system. Example: Putting lights that draw a total of 250 watts with only a 180 watt transformer will result some lights not working, or dimming and flickering, or intermittent power outtages. I learned this from experience. Always go with a transformer that has more wattage available than what is needed. Also, using the incorrect gauge of wire can cause the same issue. Wire creates resistance. Distance the power must travel through the wire creates more resistance at the end of your run than the beginning.

No high beam headlights 1996 crown victoria


does the flash to pass function work? That uses high beam bulbs.

If yes, I would bet $100 it's the lighting control module. Very expensive. @ $500. Can buy for $250 @ tascafordparts.com.

Sometimes on Ebay for cheap price.

--------------------------------
Lighting Control Module Principles of Operation
NOTE: Due to varying wattage ratings and resulting current draw, certain aftermarket headlamp bulbs may cause the lighting control module (LCM) to shut down the short circuit protection, resulting in the low beams becoming inoperative. Verify that the headlamp bulbs meet Ford specifications.
The lighting control module (LCM) receives inputs from the following:
  • headlamp switch
  • multifunction switch
  • photocell and amplifier
Depending on the inputs received, the LCM will command the headlamps on or off.

Power is supplied to the headlamps through lighting control module Circuit 502 (GY) and circuit protection C in the fuse junction panel. Ground is provided to the headlamp bulb and retainer (13N021) through Circuit 57 (BK).

The lighting control module is located under the instrument panel, to the right of the steering column, under the lower steering column cover.

Removal and Installation
  1. Open hood. Disconnect battery ground cable (14301).
  1. Disengage three pushpins and remove lower driver side intrument panel (04320) finish panel.
  1. Locate lighting control module above accelerator pedal.
  1. Disconnect bottom two eletrical connectors from lighting control module.
  1. Remove two screws retaining LCM to bracket and unclip from bracket.
  1. Remove lighting control module from bracket and disconnect two remaining electrical connectors.
  1. To install, reverse Removal procedure. Check lighting control module for proper operation.
---------------------------------

the module is about 6 inches lng and 4 inches wide and has 3 wire connectors.
