15 56 LIGHTING AND SIGNALING CIRCUITS Automotive Technology, Fifth Edition James Halderman © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved REAL WORLD FIX: Weird Problem—Easy Solution A General Motors minivan had the following electrical problems. The turn signals flashed rapidly on the left side. With the ignition key off, the lights-on warning chime sounded if the brake pedal was depressed. When the brake pedal was depressed, the dome light came on. All of these problems were caused by one defective 2057 dual- filament bulb, as shown in - FIGURE 56–3. Apparently, the two filaments were electrically connected when one filament broke and then welded to the other filament. This caused the electrical current to feed back from the brake light filament into the taillight circuit, causing all the problems.

All Rights Reserved Figure 56-3 Close-up a 2057 dual-filament (double-contact) bulb that failed. Notice that the top filament broke from its mounting and melted onto the lower filament. This bulb caused the dash lights to come on whenever the brakes were applied.

18 56 LIGHTING AND SIGNALING CIRCUITS Automotive Technology, Fifth Edition James Halderman © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved Figure 56-5 Often the best diagnosis is a thorough visual inspection. This bulb was found to be filled with water, which caused weird problems.

19 56 LIGHTING AND SIGNALING CIRCUITS Automotive Technology, Fifth Edition James Halderman © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved Figure 56-6 This single-filament bulb is being tested with a digital multimeter set to read resistance in ohms. The reading of 1.1 ohms is the resistance of the bulb when cold. As soon as current flows through the filament, the resistance increases about 10 times. It is the initial surge of current flowing through the filament when the bulb is cool that causes many bulbs to fail in cold weather as a result of the reduced resistance. As the temperature increases, the resistance increases.

21 56 LIGHTING AND SIGNALING CIRCUITS Automotive Technology, Fifth Edition James Halderman © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION: Why Are LEDs Used for Brake Lights? Light-emitting diode (LED) brake lights are frequently used for high-mounted stop lamps (CHMSLs) for the following reasons. 1. Faster illumination. An LED will light up to 200 milliseconds faster than an incandescent bulb, which requires some time to heat the filament before it is hot enough to create light. This faster illumination can mean the difference in stopping distances at 60 mph (100 km/h) by about 18 ft (6 m) due to the reduced reaction time for the driver of the vehicle behind. 2. Longer service life. LEDs are solid-state devices that do not use a filament to create light. As a result, they are less susceptible to vibration and will often last the life of the vehicle. NOTE: Aftermarket replacement LED bulbs that are used to replace conventional bulbs may require the use of a different type of flasher unit due to the reduced current draw of the LED bulbs. - SEE FIGURE 56–8.

22 56 LIGHTING AND SIGNALING CIRCUITS Automotive Technology, Fifth Edition James Halderman © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved Figure 56-8 A replacement LED taillight bulb is constructed of many small, individual light- emitting diodes.

28 56 LIGHTING AND SIGNALING CIRCUITS Automotive Technology, Fifth Edition James Halderman © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION: How Do You Tell What Type of Flasher Is Being Used? The easiest way to know which type of flasher can be used is to look at the type of bulb used in the tail lamps and turn signals. If it is a “wedge” style (plastic base, flat and rectangular), the vehicle has an electronic flasher. If it is a “twist and turn” bayonet- style (brass base) bulb, then either type of flasher can be used.

29 56 LIGHTING AND SIGNALING CIRCUITS Automotive Technology, Fifth Edition James Halderman © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION: Why Does the Side-Marker Light Alternately Flash? A question that service technicians are asked frequently is why the side-marker light alternately goes out when the turn signal is on, and is on when the turn signal is off. Some vehicle owners think that there is a fault with the vehicle, but this is normal operation. The side- marker light goes out when the lights are on and the turn signal is flashing because there are 12 volts on both sides of the bulb (see points X and Y in - FIGURE 56–14). Normally, the side-marker light gets its ground through the turn signal bulb.

30 56 LIGHTING AND SIGNALING CIRCUITS Automotive Technology, Fifth Edition James Halderman © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved Figure The side-marker light goes out whenever there is voltage at both points X and Y. These opposing voltages stop current flow through the side-marker light. The left turn light and left park light are actually the same bulb (usually 2057) and are shown separately to help explain how the side-marker light works on many vehicles.

34 56 LIGHTING AND SIGNALING CIRCUITS Automotive Technology, Fifth Edition James Halderman © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved TECH TIP: Diagnose Bulb Failure Halogen bulbs can fail for various reasons. Some causes for halogen bulb failure and their indications are as follows: Gray color. Low voltage to bulb (check for corroded socket or connector) White (cloudy) color. Indication of an air leak Broken filament. Usually caused by excessive vibration Blistered glass. Indication that someone has touched the glass NOTE: Never touch the glass (called the ampoule) of any halogen bulb. The oils from your fingers can cause unequal heating of the glass during operation, leading to a shorter-than-normal service life. - SEE FIGURE 56–18.

37 56 LIGHTING AND SIGNALING CIRCUITS Automotive Technology, Fifth Edition James Halderman © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION: What Is the Difference Between the Temperature of the Light and the Brightness of the Light? The temperature of the light indicates the color of the light. The brightness of the light is measured in lumens. A standard 100 watt incandescent light bulb emits about 1,700 lumens. A typical halogen headlight bulb produces about 2,000 lumens, and a typical HID bulb produces about 2,800 lumens.

46 56 LIGHTING AND SIGNALING CIRCUITS Automotive Technology, Fifth Edition James Halderman © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved TECH TIP: Checking a Dome Light Can Be Confusing If a technician checks a dome light with a test light, both sides of the bulb will “turn on the light” if the bulb is good. This will be true if the system’s “ground switched” doors are closed and the bulb is good. This confuses many technicians because they do not realize that the ground will not be sensed unless the door is open.

Follow the arrows from the DRL module through both headlights. Notice that the left and right headlights are connected in series, resulting in increased resistance, less current flow, and dimmer than normal lighting. When the normal headlights are turned on, both headlights receive full battery voltage, with the left headlight grounding through the DRL module.

Newer vehicles use the door switch as an input to the vehicle computer and the computer turns the interior lights on or off. By placing the lights under the control of the computer, the vehicle engineers have the opportunity to delay the lights after the door is closed and to shut them off after a period of time to avoid draining the battery.

51 56 LIGHTING AND SIGNALING CIRCUITS Automotive Technology, Fifth Edition James Halderman © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION: What Is the Troxler Effect? The Troxler effect, also called Troxler fading, is a visual effect where an image remains on the retina of the eye for a short time after the image has been removed. The effect was discovered in 1804 by Igney Paul Vital Troxler (1780–1866), a Swiss physician. Because of the Troxler effect, headlight glare can remain on the retina of the eye and create a blind spot. At night, this fading away of the bright lights from the vehicle in the rear reflected by the rearview mirror can cause a hazard.

52 56 LIGHTING AND SIGNALING CIRCUITS Automotive Technology, Fifth Edition James Halderman © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved TECH TIP: The Weirder the Problem, the More Likely It Is a Poor Ground Connection Bad grounds are often the cause for feedback or lamps operating at full or partial brilliance. At first the problem looks weird because often the switch for the lights that are on dimly is not even turned on. When an electrical device is operating and it lacks a proper ground connection, the current will try to find ground and will often cause other circuits to work. Check all grounds before replacing parts.
