Lighting System Precaution

1. PRECAUTION FOR USING BATTERY DURING

INSPECTION

(a) While using the battery during inspection, do not bring the positive and negative tester probes too close to each other as a short circuit may occur.

2. PRECAUTION FOR HEADLIGHT BULB

REPLACEMENT

(a) If even a thin film of oil is left on the surface of the halogen light, the bulb may be damaged because the light will burn at a higher temperature.

(b) Handle any halogen light with great care. Dropping, hitting or damaging the bulb, in any way, may result in exploding and shattering because the internal pressure is high.

(c) Always prepare a new bulb for immediate replacement. While replacing the bulb, the lens may attract dust and moisture if removed from the vehicle for too long.

(d) Always use a bulb of the same wattage for replacement.

(e) Firmly reinstall the socket after bulb replacement. The lens may become cloudy or the light cavity may fill with water through the gaps around the socket.
