Is Honda Odyssey A Good Car?

Time back to 2004, in that year, I bought my first car, Honda Odyssey. That is the excellent family car with 7 seats, I can take my 3 kids, and my parents go outdoors to camp. You can bring lots of stuff on the trunk, till now it is still going strong, except the lighting. The lighting on the 2004 Honda Odyssey is all halogen bulbs. You must change these small glass bulbs regularly as they have only around 3,000 hours of lifespan. Over 3,000 hours, they produce less and less lighting for you, which reduces your visibility at night time. It is necessary to change them regularly. Recently, the reverse light on my car has been dimmed again. So I bought a replacement 921 led bulbs from AutoZone yesterday, and I just change the bulb by myself.

The Steps to Change the Reverse Light on 2004 Honda Odyssey

The reverse bulbs on the 2004 Honda Odyssey are located in the sconce on the back of the trunk lid. The process of replacing the backup light bulb consists of removing the wall light to access the bulbs. The entire process is relatively simple and straightforward. It requires the use of a socket wrench and a replacement reverse led bulb. The reverse light bulb on 2004 Odyssey uses a 921 type bulbs, while the replacement led 921 bulbs can be purchased at most auto parts stores.

A New led light bulbs to produce crisp white lighting, which helps me park my car at night. And at this time, I choose 921 led light bulbs because the salesman on Autozone tell me that this kind of led bulbs from LedoAuto can last over 10,000 hours on the reverse light. That is 3 times longer than the halogen bulbs. Bedsides, they consume less power than halogen bulbs, that is green to the environment. The price is not expensive. I think it is really worth to try.
