when you see there tail lights. White lights travel farther then red lights.

The distance in feet that high beam lights cover if referring to factory lights, can be found in an owner manual. If the lights have been replaced, the information may be included with the product information.

Low beam headlights and fog lights if the vehicle has fog lights.

Your low beam lights should be on when driving after sunset (twilight) and when it is raining. Some states require headlights or daytime running lights to be on in various conditions or at various times.You should not use your high-beam lights when you are closely behind another vehicle, or when approaching another vehicle head-on on a two-way road.

TRUE statement. The actual distance is dictated by state law, which varies.

Fog Lights only, Low Beam only or Fog Lights + Low Beams.

High beams should be used only when there is no oncoming traffic, fog, snow or heavy rain. The reason for oncoming traffic is obvious - you don't want your lights to cause glare or vision problems for the oncoming drivers.But the reasons for using low beam in fog, snow and heavy rain is because when your lights are on low beam, they are directed downward toward the road, and not directed towards the distance, which enables you to see the road better in poor visibility conditions.Many drivers think low beam is a "dimming" of the lights, but it's actually more of a 'pointing downward' of the beam. So when your lights are in low beam, it gives you greater vision in poor driving conditions by training the lights downward on the road instead of towards the distance.

Full beam lights in foggy conditions will reflect the light directly back at the driver. Dipped headlights should be used instead.

Both. They increase in power by five or so watts and the beam rises and changes shape for longer distance.

If your full beam doesn't stay on, make sure your light switch on the console is actually turned to "on". Unless you've had the daytime running lights disabled, then the lights will be on when switched "off" (!) and this means the full beam doesn't lock on, it only does "flash" mode. When the lights are switched "on", then the full beam should stay on.

About 160 feet - just about the distance you need if you slam on the brakes for a sudden stop!

High-beam lights are your sencondary head lights in any veicle. They can usually be turned on with the same botton you use to turn your head lights on. High beam lights are use to see farther and wider in dark areas.

I do believe that it's between 1000 and 1200 feet

The mass appied to the beam The distance from the end of the beam to the pivot

The low beam lights should be set up as the outermost headlamps. All 4 will be on the when the "high beams" are switched on

The types of construction lights that are available are high voltage beam light and a low voltage beam light. The high voltage beam light shines a lot brighter.

The daytime running lights work of the high beam, check those first.

Hi beam lights only the High brightness filament of the headlight.Lo beam lights only the Low brightness filament of the headlight.DRL lights only the High brightness filament of the headlight, but at reduced current.Do you see the pattern?

leave parking lights on or lower beam headlights on

Not true. Hi beam lights shine higher above the ground. They will reflect back at you from fog and make it harder to see. Low beams shine lower and are not reflected back at you.

Believe it or not, you might have 2 BURNT OUT LOW BEAMS. Ive seen that a few times.

if you mean the Toyota hilux type and usually most other vehicals the main beam is on the arm that you turn your lights on with all you have to do is gently click it towards you and the blue light on dash should show which means your main beam is on click again it should return to low beam with blue light out hope this helps you out.
