On my 2007 Nitro I found that the tail lamp bulbs were all (3 on each side) 4057s. With these new types of push-in bulbs you can no longer look for a broken filament as in the past to see if the bulb is inoperative. If the base of the bulb near the glass is discolored like mine, that may point to a defective bulb. Just to make sure I ran a continuity checker on all three bulbs and found that the brake lamp bulb had one filament that would not read, but the others did. I replaced all three anyway with the Long Lasting (LL) 4057 and kept the two other bulbs for the future use. What amazes me is that if you took it to my dealer's service department, I'm sure that they would do the same thing but charge you not only for the bulbs, but one hour labor.

So now-a-days that would be over $100 to repair a broken stop lamp bulb. Guess that may be less that a traffic ticket, but not by much!


So if your Nitro is still under the original factory warranty (3/36) and ANY light bulb fails have them replace it free under warranty.

Highbeam (Brights) Change: 2007-2011 Dodge Nitro

Highbeam (Brights) Change: 2007-2011 Dodge Nitro


Video Description

This video shows you how to change the highbeams, which are also known as brights, in your 2010 Dodge Nitro. In some Dodges your headlights and highbeams are the same bulb - it is possible for the headlight portion of the bulb to burn out and for the highbeams to continue to function properly and vice versa. Replacing the bulb will restore functionality to both. Highbeam bulbs grow dimmer by over 20% over time, therefore we recommend changing both bulbs on your Nitro at the same time, even if only one is burnt out - this will allow both highbeam bulbs to have the same brightness.

Be careful not to touch the glass part of the new highbeam bulb with your finger when changing it on your Nitro. Touching the new highbeam bulb will cause the bulb to burn out quicker. If you accidentally touch the glass part, wipe it off with rubbing alcohol before inserting it into your Nitro.

Halogen vs HID vs LED


Published on Feb 17, 2017

This video is NOT meant to be an endorsement of altering the headlights in your vehicle. It's just meant to be a comparison between the Halogen, HID, and LED bulbs that are available now.

That said, I did feel like I got some surprising results from my testing as you'll see in the video.

Top 5 Best HID Headlight Bulbs

Top 5 Best HID Headlight Bulbs



Jul 04, 2018

Unlike traditional halogen headlight bulbs that burn out with around 500 hours of use, quality high intensity discharge (HID) bulbs can last anywhere from 6,000 to 8,000 hours. That likely means you aren’t shopping for replacement HID bulbs as frequently as you would if you had halogen headlights, but eventually they will need to be replaced.

The most convenient way to get replacement HID bulbs is to go to your dealership and having them replaced. But that will likely be your most expensive option. If you’re willing to swap out the bulbs on your own, then you can save yourself a bit of money by purchasing replacement bulbs online or at a local auto parts store.

Unlike halogen headlights, there isn’t a wide assortment of manufacturers that offer replacement HIDs. But there are a few brands you might want to stick with to ensure the same quality lighting you got from the factory. Also, keep in mind that there are plenty of counterfeit products out there, so make sure you’re getting it from a reputable distributor that can prove the bulb’s authenticity.


1) Philips Xenon Standard




Philips is arguably the most well-known brand when it comes to HID headlights. In fact, Philips is the inventory of Xenon HID technology and various automakers use the company’s HIDs as standard equipment on their vehicle. That’s also a reason why Philips Xenon Standard bulbs are one of the most popular available on the market. Each Philips Xenon Standard HID headlight bulb comes with an original equipment quality seal for the most reliable performance and is DOT compliant.

Each Philips Xenon Standard bulb is rated differently depending on the application. For example, the D1S and D2R bulbs are rated at 85 volts and 35 watts, with the D1S offering 3350 (± 300) lumens at a 4200K color temperature. The D2R meanwhile is rated at 3000 (± 250) lumens with the same color temperature. Make sure when you’re comparing different products that you refer to the manufacturer’s websites for specifications, rather than relying on the retailer’s website for accurate information.

The company offers its replacement bulb in a variety of fitments, so it’s almost guaranteed there’s a product that fits your car. When purchasing a Philips Xenon Standard replacement bulb, make sure there is a Philips Certificate of Authenticity (COA) on the box. You can verify the authenticity of the product by scanning the QR code or going to a website.


Pros:

Inventor of Xenon HID technology
Automakers use them
Reliable, dependable, high-quality product

Cons:

Lots of counterfeit products, make sure you’re buying from a dependable retailer
Price


2) Sylvania HID Headlight Bulb




Another popular brand within the automotive lighting industry is Sylvania. There’s a good chance you have come across Sylvania headlight bulbs in the aisles of your local auto parts store, so it’s little surprise its HID bulbs are also one of the best.

Sylvania is the North American operation of OSRAM, a lighting manufacturer headquartered in Germany. If you purchase a Sylvania bulb, there’s a possibility it will an OSRAM product in Sylvania packaging. Keep in mind that headlight regulations in Europe are different than the U.S., so if you’re purchasing a replacement, make sure you get one that’s legal for your country. Certain automakers use OSRAM HID headlight bulbs straight from the factory, so if you’re having a tough time looking for an OSRAM replacement in the U.S., check for Sylvania instead.

Designed, engineered, and manufactured to exact specifications, Sylvania’s HID replacement bulbs promise to deliver extremely long life and superior visibility. They’re available in a variety of applications, but the lineup isn’t as comprehensive as Philips.

Pay close attention to the specifications for your particular bulb, but most Sylvania HID replacements are rated at 85 volts and 35 watts with 3200 lumens and a 4150K color temperature.


Pros:


Reputable lighting manufacturer
Used as original equipment in some vehicles

Cons:


Price
Not as varied of a selection

3) Kensun HID Replacement Bulbs




A popular brand for HID conversion kits, Kensun also offers a variety of HID replacement bulbs. Kensun’s bulbs are much more affordable than Philips Xenon Standard and Sylvania HID bulbs, but they may not last as long. The company also offers replacement bulbs for Bi-Xenon headlights and combination bulbs for low Xenon/high halogen and high Xenon/halogen DRL.

When shopping for a Kensun replacement bulb, you can choose between 35 watts or 55 watts and a wide range of color temperatures from 3000K to 30000K. It’s likely higher temperature bulbs, which result in different colors, aren’t legal in your country so stick to what you can use on the road safely. But for those that want to further customize their vehicle, the options are there for off-road use – including pink and green HID bulbs.

Each HID bulb from Kensun claims to be 100-percent waterproof, 100-percent dustproof, and 100-percent shock proof and come with a two-year warranty. If your vehicle is currently equipped with halogen headlights and you’re searching for a way to upgrade, Kensun’s kits are worth a look. Just make sure they’re legal to use in your state, as most HID kits are intended for off-road use only.



Pros:

Affordable
Wattage and color temperature options
Two-year warranty

Cons:

Don’t expect them to last as long as a Philips or Sylvania bulb
