Question about 2006 Honda CR-V

Open Question

2002 Honda CR-V no low beam headlights. Replaced both bulbs, fuses are fine. Wife heard small pop while driving when low beams went out. Are there any replacable relays under the dash that go out? Other lights work fine. Thanks,

    Our 2002 Honda CR-V had same issue...
    Both low beams went out at the same time. 4 bulbs so far in 1 year. Wife was driving, heard a small pop, when both low beam lights went out.
    New bulbs no help. All other lights work fine, fuses okay.
    This seems to be a consistent problem for many Gen 2 CR-V owners.



    My Solution!!



    Tested relays by swapping out the headlight relays with a couple others that are in the fuse/relay box under the hood. Five relays inside are the same type, so easy to do. Still No low beams…



    Took the dimmer switch out to check for problems. Quite easy to do, but as soon as I pulled the block connector out of the dimmer switch, I could see a small burn mark on the block connector!!



    Took the dimmer switch apart, looking for a short or issue. None found. Dimmer switch is a simple unit, nothing inside was damaged.



    And…the male pins that connect into the block connector were slightly corroded and had some burnt plastic between the pins. Could have been a slight short between the pins that caused the block connector to burn, along with the corrosion. Pins are copper; block connector female connectors are aluminum.



    Decided to clean the pins and housing and also the block connector female connector. Scraped off most of the corrosion with a very small flat screwdriver, used acetone to cleaned out the plastic debris.



    Re-assembled dimmer switch, plugged in block connector, tried lights and everything working normally!



    If you are having some low beam light issues, and are uncomfortable with these repairs, let your mechanic know to examine the block connector-to-dimmer switch connections for corrosion if all fuses and relays check out.


    Unfortunately, the switch may not be the problem but the connection sure was! It pays to noodle around sometimes.




    This also may be the root cause of excessive bulb failures. Our CR-V did not start blowing bulbs till this year, after 4 years of ownership. The dimmer switch is a low current switch that really just turns on the relays for the headlights. Increased resistance in the block connector and pins may have been the root cause all along.

SOURCE: DRL and High Beam do not work right on Honda Accord EX 1998

Some time back I found some data on a similar website suggesting that the Day Light Running circuit board, just under the steering column, developed cracks in some of the soldered joints. Your high beams should also be affected with loss of day light running lights.
Resoldering repaired the continuity of the circuits. Ours is now working quite reliably. Some of the defective areas developed slight brownish discoloration, that's how I was told to recognise the areas to be resoldered. Hope this will help you solve your problem.

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.

From another forum I found the following:

"If you have an '02 CR-V and your low beams aren't working, pull the covers off of the steering column and check the headlamp switch connector and its wiring harness. The CR-V of that model year used the same headlamp switch as '01-02 Civics, which was recalled by Honda in the Civic models but not in CR-Vs. A problem with the switch causes the red/white wire and its terminal to overheat and burn or melt the harness connector and the socket/pins on the switch. This causes the low beams to stop working, while the high beams continue to function.

If you find that this is your problem, Honda's service bulletin (#04-015) advises to replace the headlamp switch and the connector and to splice a new terminal onto the red/white wire. They have a parts kit (part no. 35012-S5A-307) that includes the switch, connector, and wire. This kit is actually cheaper than buying the headlamp switch alone.

While the CR-V wasn't part of the recall, I've found the problem is exactly the same as with the Civic model and the parts kit works just the same. The only difference is that you have to pay for it, instead of having it repaired for free... "

I phoned our local dealership and the kit they keep in stock for $40. Not sure if it will fit the '03 or not, but going to give it a try.

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.

What is the DRL warning light on the dashboard of my 2007 Honda CRV?


On my 2007 Honda CR-V The DRL code appeared on the dash board. Additionally I had only one high beam (on the passenger side); both low beams were fine, but I did not have a Daytime Running Light on the drivers side. The DRL code was really misleading because the real problem was that the high beam element in the headlight bulb was burned out. Note that the daytime running light is not a seperate bulb -- it is the high beam element which is powered at a low voltage. Once I replaced the head light bulb everything worked fine and the DRL code on the dash board was gone. So if the DRL message appears what you really need to do is replace the headlight bulb (there are YouTube videos which show how to do this - but search for headlight replacement, not for DRL fix). Be careful not to touch the new bulb with you hands since premature burnout can occur from the grease off your skin. I got my bulb from Wal-Mart for $8.88 (it's a 9003/HB2 for the 2007 CR-V) -- that's a pretty cheap fix.

Inop low beam fuses are good makes clicking sound when you turn them on high beams work fine


Low beam has a relay it is making the sound, turn on while looking for the noise the relay you find may be bad but make sure the the low beam bulbs are good first as they are way more likly to be bad than the relay or the fuse

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.

How to change my headlights on Honda 2005 CRV


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!
