Question about 2005 Honda CR-V
2005 CRV low beam headlight blow out every few months. I noticed on the internet a lot of CRV's have this problem.
I had the same problem with my 2005 CR-V starting about a year after I had the car (I guess the factory lights died), I started having to replace the bulbs every month or so. Very annoying. Never had both die at the same time, but often had one go out within days of replacing the other. It seemed to happen right at the start-up (I face a wall when I park, and could actually see the light "pop"). And Honda doesn't make it easy to replace these bulbs. About four months ago, I replaced both lowbeams, but I was particularly careful to (1) not touch the bulb with my fingers or against any of the engine compartment components. I was also very careful to reseat the rubber seal so that it was right side up (see the manual). Since then, I have not had the problem. I suspect that moisture was getting inside the seal and causing the bulb to pop (I had some bulbs completely blow out) or overheat. This probably goes back to my initial faulty replacement step where I didn't pay attention to making sure the rubber seal was right side up. All this being said, I suspect I'll start my car tomorrow and all the head lights will go out. And by the way, the high beams are the original bulbs. Go figure.
