Did you recently change a bulb or have a crack in the headlamp?
headlights are design so they shouldn't acumulate moisture, however if replace the bulb and not seal it corectly we can get a water inside. First you should inspect your light for any damage (small cracks, tiny holes ect.), 2nd check your bulb position in the headlight, should be installed firm in the socket (oring, seal from must be in good condition, no cracks, flexible, if bulb is very old seal can get damage, so just replace a bulb). In order to remove moisture you will have to remove the bulb anyway and with the hair dryier heat the lens till you get water out of it, be carefull do not heat to high and just in one spot becuse you can damge headlight. it will take a while to do this at this time of the year if you live in late fall, winter afected region, but if the problems discribed above exist your moisture will come back(you may have to replace the headlight). Good luck

What can i do to take the moisture out of the head lights on my lexus gs 2001


The housings are made of plastic and have sealer around the lenses. They are most likely leaking water around the lenses. Remove the unit by removing the screws holding the lights in car. Very carefully turn them over and drill a 1/8" hole in about two places in the plastic bottom of each one. This will allow water to drain out. Replace the headlight units in car. This should take care of the problem.

My 2001 chevy cavalier headlights and wipers dont work and my car would not start **** got car to start **** wipers and headlights still dont work this only happens when it rains


It sounds like you have moisture getting in somewhere. Check all of your wires to ensure they are dry, and be sure to open up and take a look at the fuse relay located in the engine compartement. You can easilly seal the fuse relay box with ordinary cloth or peices of styrofoam to help keep moisture out. Also, ensure that there is no moisture getting into your headlight assembly. If any of it appears cracked, those can easilly be sealed with ordinary rubber cement. Just don't over do it.

I have moisture on the inside of the headlight lens. How can I get rid of it without buying a whole new headlight lens assembly?


Just a suggestion, remove the light assembly, remove one bulb, blow air into the unit, see where the air leaks out, seal it with Goop. Quick and easy.

I have a 2001 Acura 3.2 TL headlight goes on and off


As with Laurenson 538, I have the same problem with my 2001 CL.

Should this problem with the 2001 Acuras be a recall issue? I, too, have replaced the headlight assembly ($1,000 plus). The old one (sealed[?]) had moisture in it... the reported cause of the light burning out. Within a short period, the $1000 replacement had moisture in it and has just burned out again.

Now, at a different Acura agency, I'm told that the bulb needs another $1,000 replacement. When I asked about the warranty, I was advised 90 days was the warranty. When I asked if I was expected to spend $1,000 every 90 days to be able to drive the car, the rep got defensive.
Writing Acura resulted in a big Zero. Before buying a new Acura, one might inquire about the headlights. Since one can't drive without headlights, maybe Acuras should be reserved for daylight driving only! Have a backup car for night driving!
