Out of alignment. Have the alignment checked. Could be a broken tire or an allignment problem, if its the tire rod your tire will move easily when jacked up and off the ground this is bad and could result in your tire falling off... ouch WRONG WRONG WRONG... ITS BECAUSE YOU CANNOT ADJUST THE CASTER OR CAMBER...YOU NEED TO BUY A KIT...AND THEN GET IT ALIGNED...

fluorescent bulbs have mercury in them. There are heaters at the ends of the bulb that vaporizes the mercury to allow the light to be produced ( the fluorescence on the inside of the bulb is what actually glows). If the bulb is cold you do not get the ionization of the mercury to cause the fluorescent powder inside the bulb to glow, or it just glows a small amount.
