2006 Honda Pilot headlight needs to be unplugged/re-plugged in to work

The low-beam headlight will work for a little while and then quit. If I unplug the light from the wire and plug it back in, the headlight will come back on. A day or two later and the same thing happens. I replace the small wire from the headlight to the harness and that didn't help. Any ideas?

SOURCE: low beam headlight on Pilot 2004

Hi again,

I lookd for the Technical Service Bulletin on headlights that you referred to in our Live Chat. It is Service Bulletin 07-027 dated May 12, 2007. A downloadable copy is avaibale here. It contains procedures, photos and images on how to address the issue. However, may I point out that said TSB refers to both left & right low beams and not only the right.

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Electrical low-beam headlight wire on 02 Chevy Trailblazer burnt

Get yourself to a junkyard and pack yourself a light lunch while you're at it. Take a leisurely stroll through the junk that closely resembles the one you need parts for. Go to the closest wiring harness to the headlight assembly, take your time and don't go trying to **** it, and unplug it from the bulbs up front. Make a simple and straight forward swap and do take the time to stop and smell the junkers, it's quite relaxing! Then, you should seriously make sure your new wiring harness is properly grounded (!), which I suspect to have been a contribing factor to your problem of overheating the bulb socket. Do take the time to go over the stuff that should be grounded and make it so. Th e job is quite simple and well worth you taking the time to do it yourself.

Replaced battery in crv and now headlights don't work


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.

Where is fuses for headlights located for 1991 Honda LX


Hello Jeff, I've seen this before, a while back on a Pontiac Sunbird. A friend called me with the same issue as you. I did come checking of (looking for low resistance using a ohm meter) the low-beam elements, both were open (no resistance, which comes from the little spiral wire just like a regular light bulb). This is what I believe happened to you. One headlight went out previously but still having one that worked you didn't really notice. You did notice however when the last and only low-beam filament went out and this lead you to believe (as did my friend) that both went out together. You probably need to change both bulbs. Check first each low-beam, unplugged of course with a ohm meter to confirm. I favor those bluish bulbs, got mine at Pep Boys (Pilot brand?). You can see better with those in my honest opinion.

How do i replace a low beam head light on a 94' camry ?


Things You'll Need:
  • #H11-55W and #9005 replacement bulbs (low- and high-beam bulbs for 2007 and later models)
  • #9006 and #9005 replacement bulbs (low- and high-beam bulbs for 2002-2006 models).
STEPS TO REPLACE HEAD LIGHT: Shut off the Camry's engine and set the parking brake for added safety. Also, make sure its headlights are switched off. Open the hood using the primary and auxiliary hood release latches. Locate the back of the headlight assembly and determine whether the low- or high-beam bulb needs to be replaced. Turn the headlight bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the assembly. Unplug the electrical connector from the back of the bulb. Carefully dispose of the bulb to prevent it from shattering or cracking.

2006 Honda CRV Passenger both Low & High beams out (bulbs good)


Well I suspect that you may have developed a problem in what's called the Multiplex unit. It's an integral part of the fuse box in Honda CR-V's. It's possible that the cargo trailer caused the problem by causing too much current to be drawn thru the system, I have a similar problem with my 2002 Honda CR-V and have been told I need to replace the multiplex unit and they are quite expensive. You may have to bite the bullet and have it checked by your nearest Honda Dealer.
