If you’ve ever driven in the dark, you know that one of the hazards of the road is trying to avoid cars with improper license plate lights. When these lights are not properly functioning, it can be difficult to see the letters and numbers on a license plate. Not only can this lead to accidents, but it can also be illegal. In fact, some states have laws against driving with improperly functioning license plate lights. Fortunately, there are ways to fix license plate lights and make them more visible. In this post, we will show you how to change a license plate light without having to take it into a mechanic or pay for an expensive repair.
