Easy cheesy! Ive changed mine twice. The headlights are small bulbs. Make sure you get the right one (hi-beam vs low-beam). Unplug connector at back of bulb / headlamp unit, remove rubber weather seal (pops right ot). The bulb is held in with a small wire clip that is hard to get back on but can be done. Its spring loaded. Drop wire clip, turn bulb assya 1/4 turn, and it comes right out. Remove bulb from holder and replace. Reverse steps and VOILA!
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Check the low beam fuse in the fuse box, usually a 20A. If the fuse is blown/shorted during the replacement of the battery, your lights won't work. Replace the fuse if that's your case. Hope this helps.
If you look back at some previous postings on Honda CR-V's which have been solved, you will find the information which might relate to yours.
The door switch is located on the pillar between the front/back doors and near the bottom. It has a protective rubber covering over it. To access it, there is a single screw which has to be removed.
Here is a cut & paste of a previous posting for an individual having the same problem with the headlight/key alarm not working.
" I had a similar problem -- my interior lights would not come on when I opened my driver's door, plus I wouldn't get a warning if I left the key in the ignition or the headlights on.
There is a switch covered with rubber on the door post. I removed the switch, sprayed just a slight amount of contact cleaner, made sure the switch worked by grounding it to the frame and pressing the switch in & out a couple of times. Then I carefully replaced it.
I attributed the problem to my seat belt buckle hitting the switch as I closed the door without checking to see if the seat belt had retracted properly.
There are 5 bolts holding the headlight assembly in place. 2 at the top and 3 underneath.
Remove the plastic cross piece by prising out the clips and then the grille clips too then unbolt the bolts eithr side under the wheel arch. The bumper is still fastened using cips. Pull the bumper forward to unclip.
I just found an answer at an auto forum site on the web. The problem is the door switch in the door. It thinks the door is "closed" when it is in fact open. So fix the door sensor switch in the driver's door
