2003 honda civic headlights problem

The headlights on my 2003 honda civic lx are not working correctly. The low beams will not come on at all, but the high beams work fine.

I have a service appointment tomorrow, but I would love to be able to fix this myself.

No low beams (both Sides) but high work

There is a recall on the headlight switch for 2001 civic (and perhaps many others.) This is a safety recall and it affects all vehicles regardless of whether you are the original owner.

But beware when bringing your civic into the dealership to have the work done - They don't particulary like doing recall work without hitting you in the wallet on the way out. I brought mine to Silko Honda in Raynham, MA and they replaced the switch - only to tell me I still needed head lamp bulbs at $35 per side (and with no Vasiline to go along with the deal, if you know what I mean..)

I took the car home, removed the steering column cover, disconnected the directional plug and cleaned the contacts (the one for the low beam was a bit dirty, interestingly.) After performing this tedium, low and behold: My headlights worked ($70 for bulbs my A$$.)

So in short, first get to the directional plug and clean the contacts. You may not even need to have the switch changed out. But if you do, wear a chastity belt before going into the stealership. They have one goal and one goal only: To drain your pocket as much as they can.

2002 Civic Headlights not working correctly

A dimmer switch may blow the fuse. The high beams may be causing to much of an energy drain and therefore they shut off.
