    Thanks I'll give it a try

    Tried the suggested fix by WIZ. We just purchased the car for my daughter last night and on the way home we used the brights and they both were black. Before I took it in I asked if the fix could be just the bulbs. Today I checked to bulbs one was burnt out the other was improperly installed. One of the contacts was bent over and was not making contact. total cost 8.81. WIZ thanks again. It was weird that both brights were acting up. I thought I may be a relay or a fuse but it didn't make sense looking at the manual.

    Both bulbs litteraly black is definately burn out.

    2 lamp system, both bulbs have a low and high beam element.

    4 lamp system, the inside bulbs are high beam only, 1 element

    The outside lamps hi and lo.

    When you hit the high beams all 4 lamps light up the high beams

    When you dim, the inside lamps go out and outside lamps shift to low beam elemen. good luck

    All is well then? Good. Fyi- the two outside lamps shpould be 3 prong and the two inside lamps should be 2 prong. Since my daughter is my ace, feel free to ask for advice anytime. -- I'll help if I can.-Ned

I have a 2001 Honda Civic that did not pass emissions test. My

A. DTC P1705: Short in Transmission Range Switch (TRS) Circuit. The TRS lights the A/T gear position indicator in the instrument panel shows which gear has been selected.

The PCM also uses this information in order to manage the fuel system for maximum efficiency. The most obvious symptom you will see is the A/T gear position indicator lights will not come on or come on in the wrong position.

Once this is repaired emissions should pass
