Lighting is usually a fundamental aspect when it comes to customizing the vehicle by modifying certain aesthetic details. It should be borne in mind that it is completely legal to install LED lights in the car as long as there is no significant element modified or there is an excessive increase in lighting that could interfere with driving. Hi, and my question, which no one knows how to answer me or the ITV, would be.. Can I adjust the LED backwards?. Thank you My question is the following, the ITV reform manual only refers to the abbreviations in the headlights of HC, HCR (halogen) and DC, DCR (xenon), but to the LEDs nothing at all, today I saw in a Peugeot FULL LED headlight the driver identification sticker, it puts HCR (Halogenas junction and road) RL (daytime running lights / position). how does FULL LED provide halogen approval???? Which leads me to believe that the ovbiamente is that if you install a normal headlight with an approved LED KIT with CE marking is completely legal, the bulbs are considered a replacement/replacement and not a reform. Does anyone know anything about that? Politeness formulas. Are you planning to replace your car`s bulbs with modern LED lights? Certainly, you have a lot of doubts about the legality and the requirements that must be met to install them and avoid penalties. In this article, we explain everything you need to know to change the headlights of your car. In this case, the ECE R48 (in terms of installation) and ECE R87 (DRL lamps) standards must be complied with. If the lights are not homologated and recorded in the vehicle`s data sheet, you may be sanctioned or have an adverse result in ITV. That is, we can only mount the LED lights of our car if it has already installed them in the factory, with optics designed for this type of light source. Thanks for the xenon clarification more or less knew that it was so, but not so technical I agree with the automatic control equipment in the LED but not in the lava headlights.
What I for example is that if I buy spots with daytime line for my Toledo, the ITV does not exist, even if I have the European homologation certificate only because they are not original or put 2 modules of 8 LEDs in the network, precisely for this reason, if it is for security (so that I can be seen. Well, when I do a project (payment) I give the itv (I pay again) and I ask that they put it in the file (payment plus) I`m sure. Not me. In countries like Switzerland, people put LED modules in cars that go from the headlight to the headlight and nothing happens. The V-16`s current emergency lights will not be valid in 2026, according to DGT. We know all this thanks to the Spanish Association of Automotive Suppliers, SERNAUTO, which, by the way, has just launched a campaign to inform drivers and workshop professionals about the regulations in force. LED lights that some vehicles have installed. However, not everything would go well. The legality of these bulbs can be questionable if you do not meet all the requirements for their correct installation. One of the most common questions when we talk about lighting is very simple, can I improve the lighting of my car in any way? Since my hyndai tucson still automatic gasoline that drove in cruze but long h7 halogen door can not be put in long led if I just need to remove the halogens and the h7 from the LED closed lid and is already the focus is all equal a room not in two parts for the cruze led and along the focus is equal to a room not divided in two a few walls Crossover led and others for halogens is a solid piece I do not see any reform remove halogens and put the h7 of the LED in length is to remove and close the lid and done In fact, the Spanish legislation is a sacacuartos and make a change to your car leads to a study.
An examination and validation of the engineer so that it can be homologated, since according to the Ministry of Transport, your car has not been approved with these modifications. It doesn`t matter if these are really improvements for you and others. Because if it passed the test, the car was homologated the way you bought it. Therefore, the organization understands that you do not have knowledge, as it is a personal opinion and can harm others. For example, generalized xenon kits mounted on halogen reflectors. Eye that there were models that assembled it like Laguna 2 and C5 first series. The Guardia Civil believes that HID lamps are mounted exclusively on projectors with projectors. And that`s the first thing they observe. It is also veto in license plates that they themselves recognize that white LED lights show license plates better. Administrative matters. Remember that each outdoor lamp must be placed on a spot specially designed for this purpose. For this reason, you can only mount LED lights if your car has already mounted them.
That is, you only have the possibility to mount this type of light if your car brings it as standard. Yes, replacing halogen lamps with LED luminaires saves money in the long run because energy consumption is lower. However, when it comes to outdoor light sources, the regulations are different. Although it is currently possible to find on the market several types of light-emitting diodes that can be placed in the different lights of the car (short or transverse, long or road, anti-fog, position, reverse, etc.), it is necessary to know a number of details to avoid a fine or an unfavorable result in the ITV (Technical Inspection of Vehicles). Therefore, when it comes time to change the car lights, many motorists wonder if it is possible to mount LED lights in their vehicle, although this was not originally worn. If we refer strictly to the legal texts, we must distinguish three types of lamps in the lighting of vehicles: halogen, xenon and LEDs. Many times I have heard the question: Can I install LED lights on my car? It is true that with this type of lighting you drive much better at night because they offer more visibility and increase safety when driving. But the big question is, can I do it without problems or do I expose myself to fail ITV and be punished? We will respond to this great debate. If LEDs, consume much fewer watts than those that come by car, from 55 watts halogen to 5 LEDs, I do not understand why they need cooling fins or fans LEDs and halogens do not have any. I understand that the length if you need to change it, but put the heatsink, NO. You don`t just have to install headlight washers. It is necessary to mount automatic altitude control, because drivers like Gilis do not think to lower the headlights when the car is charged, so as not to dazzle other drivers.
That is why I think it is absolutely necessary. Nor are they gas lamps as such. These are gas dumps. These create a voltaic arc that creates light through the metal particles inside that interact with the bulb`s plasma. On the other hand, LED lighting is quite powerful and improves its performance every day, so it dazzles too.
