Lights On program helps Whatcom County vehicles light their way

ClassicCarsHC1307_X_300_C_YThe Whatcom County Automotive Service Association (ASA) will hold their 43rd annual Lights On inspection at two locations on Saturday, October 3.

Qualified volunteers from the ASA will be on hand to check out your headlights, brake lights, turn signals and other external lights, completely free of charge. Lights On will be held in Bellingham at Bellingham High School, 2020 Cornwall Avenue, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers will also be at Everson Elementary School, 216 Everson Goeshen Road at the same time.

October is National Car Care Month, and so each year the ASA holds the event to ensure all cars are properly illuminating, which saves lives both inside and outside the vehicle. With the longer winter nights approaching, having properly functioning lights on your car is more important than ever.

Volunteers from Bellingham Technical College will check and replace bulbs for free. The Everson and Bellingham NAPA Auto Parts Locations are donating all LED and HID bulbs for the event. Specialty bulbs will not be provided, but volunteers may be able to help you install them if you bring your own.

Volunteers will also supply visitors with a packet, which includes a special folder for storing the car’s important paperwork, lists of local ASA shops, some informational flyers and a special trash bag for the car.

Due to a limited amount of time, space and resources, volunteers will not be able to make any extensive repairs to faulty wiring or complete any installation that requires special tools.
