Aftermarket Headlight Bulb Colors
Probably the biggest choice you will make when choosing headlight bulbs is what color to get, as light color will be the most visibly obvious effect on your Taurus.
The White Replacement Headlight Bulb: The Popular Choice
Sometimes incorrectly called blue headlight bulbs because of their blue tint, super white bulbs use the blue as a filter to produce a clean white light. They emulate white sunlight with color temperature of around 5,000K. Since they produce a clean color without any aggressive tint, they are a low key upgrade for a cleaner nighttime drive. They are by far the preferred choice for Ford Taurus low beam and high beam replacements. They are also the 2nd most popular Taurus fog light bulb color option.
Types: Nokya Arctic White, Nokya Cosmic White (Ion tint), PIAA Xtreme White, and PIAA Intense White
The Purple Replacement Headlight Bulb: Euro Styling Favorite
Purple is the color of choice for Taurus owners going for the Euro style look. Emulating the purplish tint that is produced by German OEM Xenon HID Bulbs, they provide a stylish white with a strong hint of violet. They are the perfect complement to red hued neon accents (i.e., pink, red, purple).
Types: Nokya Arctic Purple, PIAA Super Plasma GT-X
The Yellow Replacement Headlight / Fog light Bulb: JDM Styling and Universal Safety
Yellow is the only color of aftermarket headlight / fog light bulb for your Taurus that can be considered a safety upgrade. Unlike other colors of light, yellow light actually works better in snow, fog, and rain since it does not create glare when reflected off of those surfaces. That’s why yellow is the go-to choice for your Ford Taurus fog light or high beam bulbs. They have a small similarity to your Taurus’s OEM headlight bulb color, so they can also be considered a low key upgrade for your Taurus’s low beams as well.
Types: Nokya Arctic Yellow, PIAA Plasma Yellow (white / ion yellow)
Brand Comparison: PIAA vs. Nokya
There are many aftermarket headlight and fog light bulbs on the market, but PIAA and Nokya are hands down the best.

Which Bulb does your Ford Taurus’s Headlight or Fog light use?
We try to keep our database as updated as possible, but we may not have the exact bulb application listed for your Taurus headlight or fog light. In these cases, we recommend the following:
- Check your vehicle owner’s manual to see if it lists the replacement bulbs you should use for your headlights or fog lights (this may not work with aftermarket headlights or fog lights).
- Using clean gloves and not touching the glass, uninstall a stock bulb and look for a part number (usually printed or inscribed on the base).
- Check the front of your lamp to see if the part number is inscribed on the face of the lamp below where the bulb rests.
Also, you can identify the filament count by looking inside the glass. Each coil of springs is one filament. Dual filament have the high and low beams in a single bulb.

How to Install Ford Taurus Bulbs
Depending on which type of bulb you are installing on your Taurus Headlamp Low Beam, High Beam, or Fog Light, the installation process should be pretty simple. If you are having trouble figuring out how to work with a certain type of bulb, please use this list of tips:
Please make sure your lights have been off for at least 5-10 minutes before attempting to install. The glass gets extremely hot and could take some time to cool down.
Make sure your Taurus is off and parked on a level surface. For added safety, you could disconnect your positive battery terminal to make sure you do not damage your electrical system. This is also a good idea for newer model cars that throw a check engine light when you replace your headlight bulbs.
If any dirt or oil (including skin oil) gets on the glass of the bulb it could cause the bulb to overheat and blow prematurely. For this reason, please make sure to wear clean gloves and avoid touching the glass.
