Taillights for Infiniti I30
Since its entry into the American market, there has always been something different about the Nissan Infiniti series. The sporty look is augmented by functional designs such as the taillights. The taillights of the Infiniti I30 proved to be a significant advance in taillight technology that moved into new generations.What is significant about the Infinity taillight design?
The principal innovation in taillight design used in the Infiniti I30 model was not that the designers used a new method but that they divided assignments for taillights. Typically, the design of lights or devices was an afterthought for aesthetic appeal. As in headlights, light-emitting devices allowed a break in taillight design to maximize the use of new technology while diminishing energy needs in the Infiniti I30 series. To accomplish this feat, Nissan engineers divided the functions of a taillight into two sections on the Infiniti, one positioned on both left and right rear quarter panels and the other on the trunk.What is the function of the taillight?
Taillights have two principal purposes: communication and aesthetic design. Each device must be able to communicate the driver’s intention. The taillight also shows that the vehicle is geared to move in reverse. All three of these warnings are imperative for car safety. Each device conveys a different intention and so must be blocked from other devices to avoid confusing signals.What effect did technology have on the taillight design?
The rise of LED usage in vehicle light devices gave Nissan the opportunity to divide the device housings, allowing an expansion of the device compartments. Thus, an intense device filled an expanded compartment to provide significant alerts to others. And, besides, the design looked great.How can a driver know that a taillight has failed?
Light-emitting devices are brighter than traditional bulbs, creating a larger light pattern.
- The breaking of the taillight in two allowed Nissan to sweep the turn signal toward the side of the vehicle. Doing so made a broader pattern that could be seen through the driver side or passenger side mirrors at night.
- Reverse lamps shine brightly in the rear and can be seen through the rear-view mirror.
- The brake lights glow a bright red which is unmistakable when the car brakes against a solid surface like a garage door.
Check your taillights regularly. When a lens breaks, the light will be brighter as factory LEDs are often tinted to the appropriate color. If you replace one light-emitting device, replace them all as one going out can indicate that others will follow. If you replace a light-emitting device and it works for a while before failing again, then it is time to have the inner workings of the taillight checked.
