Is it safe to install 3rd party car accessories?

Posted by on

It’s the technology age in the auto industry and we see more and more of exciting new and innovative features every now and then. More so in the aftermarket, there’s a lot to choose from when it comes to car accessories.  In case of auto lighting, third party lighting options are limitless. To customize your car to match your preferences, you can modify headlights, tail lights, indication lights, interior lighting or for that matter or add decorative lighting, there’s a wide range of products available for those passionate about their wheels. The obvious concern that remains is how safe or wise is it to install accessories or replacements of upgrade. Do they produce heat or emit toxic vapors? Do they drain the car battery? Is it wise to install LED lights as aftermarket accessories? These are the logical concerns when seeking to upgrade.

LED Headlights work on an entirely different principle than that of halogen bulbs. They have no filament. LEDs operate by transferring current through a semi-conductor. This movement of electrons through a semi-conductor emits photons producing light, making LEDs a lot more efficient than halogen bulbs. Comparatively they also generate significantly less heat and offer better durability. Operating temperature of the LEDs if maintained within a reasonable zone, they could even run indefinitely. For this reason manufacturers claim 20,000+ hours of operating life of LED headlamps. LEDs require a lower voltage than halogens and give a brighter and whiter light. An added plus is the flexibility of altering the color by changing the physical properties of the semi-conductor. LEDs do not emit vapors.

We shall now address the concerns surrounding issues of warranty and compatibility. The standard protocol of course is to look up your car owner’s manual provided by the manufacturer. If your car is within the warranty period, the probabilities are that that there would be restrictions regarding modification to the electrical system. Please therefore read the fine print carefully in order to avoid any violations that may lead to risking your warranty policy.

The next step is to read carefully from your car owner’s manual and understand the technical specifications surrounding the lighting system in your car. This should be followed by studying the technical data provided by the third party manufacturer of the accessory or the upgrade kit that you propose to install. Check carefully for any incompatibilities. Make sure that you are fully convinced prior to making your online purchase.
