Question about 2005 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Headlights won't go on; brights, parking lights OK

I'm the original owner of a 2005 Accord EX. Suddenly tonight the headlights won't go on, only the parking lights and the brights work. I've never had any replacement lamps or work done on the headlights. But over the past year, I have had the feeling that my lights were dimmer than they should be. Not flickering, just dim.

Hello,I see you have a problem with your low beams inoperative.It sounds as if your multi function switch has either gone bad. If you will dim and brighten your lights the switch may go back to working. You have to shake it in all directions. If they come back to working you will want to replace the switch as soon as posible on this car. Please rate this answer, Thank you.

Saab 97x headlights turn off all of a sudden, sometimes coming back on, but tonight they didn't. had to use my brights


Some vehicles use a circuit breaker in the headlight circuit so that when there is a short then the breaker opens and then closes so that night vision is not totally lost from a blown fuse . Check out the system for a blown fuse or faulty breaker or faulty light module.

I have a 2005 Outback. Suddenly the lights won't turn off. I can turn the headlights on and off but the parking lights front and rear will not turn off. Any suggestions?


Hi it sounds like you have hit the parklight switch, in some models there is a swith in the steering colum surround peice on the top that is hard to notice and it activates the park lights, give it a try as it may have been knocked on

Can a shade tree guy change the lighting control module under the dash on a 2005 ford crown vic?My lights go out while driving. You can hold the brights on to get home.


Yes they are easy to change, But they aren't cheap. I work on a lot of police cars and usually the light control module will have just one dead circuit in it, like no parking lights or no headlights. You can bypass the one circuit that is bad with a relay.

Headlights work, but not Instrument panel, daytime RL....


If the parking lights do not come on, they do have their own fuse, and it could be bad. This is separate from the brake lights.

But if the fuses are all good, then it could be the headlight switch. Remember the switch does the parking lights separate from the main headlights, so that you can just turn on the parking lights if you want, (Paris style). It is a feature left over from WWII, when Europeans were not allowed to run with full headlights at night, in the cities.

Only headlights work, 91 4dr EX


ok supaxang, could this solution be as simple as replace the 2 rear bulbs? The brake light and tail light (parking light) are the same bulb, 2 filaments, one for brakes, one for tail lights. If the the tail light filament burns out, the brake light will continue to work ok. It is quite possible that both tail lights burned out, and the brake light filaments are good and still working. Replace w/ bulb #2057. Let me know if this fixes it, if not, I'll keep working on it.
