Question about 1999 Honda Passport
Yes, I would ask Rick to check the lamps and if replacing them fixes the problem, your headlights are too old anyway. If that doesn't work, I would ask him for an estimate because electrical circuit problems can be challenging and illusive.

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.

There are two filiments in each headlamp; one for low beams, and the other for high beams. It is possible that the both right and left low beam filiments burned out at nearly the same time. Otherwise, there may be a fuse, or headlight relay that is causing the problem. If all these check out good, it may be your headlight switch needs to be replaced.

There is a recall on the headlight switch for 2001 civic (and perhaps many others.) This is a safety recall and it affects all vehicles regardless of whether you are the original owner.
But beware when bringing your civic into the dealership to have the work done - They don't particulary like doing recall work without hitting you in the wallet on the way out. I brought mine to Silko Honda in Raynham, MA and they replaced the switch - only to tell me I still needed head lamp bulbs at $35 per side (and with no Vasiline to go along with the deal, if you know what I mean..)
I took the car home, removed the steering column cover, disconnected the directional plug and cleaned the contacts (the one for the low beam was a bit dirty, interestingly.) After performing this tedium, low and behold: My headlights worked ($70 for bulbs my A$$.)
So in short, first get to the directional plug and clean the contacts. You may not even need to have the switch changed out. But if you do, wear a chastity belt before going into the stealership. They have one goal and one goal only: To drain your pocket as much as they can.
