Question about 2009 Honda CR-V

3 Answers

When I left work today, my headlights were working fine. About five minutes before I got home neither headlight was working. All of the rest of my lights are working fine including my hi beams. I just replaced my headlights and they are still not working. I drive a 2005 Honda CRV, what might be the problem? I really need help as I am suppose to make a long drive in 2 days.

    Low beams do not work, even with two new bulbs. Fuses are good, highs work fine.

    Have replaced 4 bulbs in the last year or so. Seems excessive, as none of my other vehicles EVER needs bulbs...

    Might this be a switch problem?

    Thanks,

Heres a few basic things to take into consideration on the 2005 CR-V.
Each headlight uses a separate relay so that cannot be the cause.
Each headlight uses a separate ground so that cannot be the cause.
Each headlight uses a separate fuse so that cannot be the cause.

Try looking at the combination switch. The dimmer switch grounds the high and low beams separately so when it is in one position the low beams come on and in the other position the high beams comes on.

I would check the fuses next. If it's not the fuse, and the headlight is not burned out, I would say you have an electric problem which could be either a bad switch or bad wire somewhere. I would also check to connector to the headlamp by unplugging it and replugging it back in. Hope it gets solved.

Right headlight not working


Check the bulb socket to make sure it's making good contact. Even add some dielectric grease to possibly help. Most sockets will melt and not be able to see it till you remove the bulb.

2005 Dodge Magnum low beams do not work


Obviously you have a connector which has come partially apart somewhere between the Headlights and the Headlight Switch. Most modern vehicles have several connectors between the Headlight Switch and the Headlights, Start at the Firewall Connector and work forward toward the Headlights making sure all connectors are securely mated. Another remote possibility is that you have fractured the "Low Beam Filaments" in BOTH Headlights. You don't mention how hard you hit the Speed Bump but if it caused the car to "Bottom Out" the front suspension it was a hard enough impact to fracture the filaments. You can use a 12 Volt Test Light at the Sockets for the Headlight Bulbs and see if you are getting 12 Volt power there. If you are in Low Beam position you have fractured the filaments. Check with High Beam too.

check under the hood of the car instead of within the chasis for the headlight fuses.
