Driver's side headlight keeps going out and when you hit the fender it pops back on. turn the lights off and the next time you turn them on, it may or may not come on. apparently the bulb is not burned out but it is not making a connection all the time.

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.
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.
I just replaced both low beam headlight bulbs on my 2005 Honda Accord. After reading the owner's manual and trying to remove the wheel well inserts (and breaking a couple of those clips in the process), I gave up on that approach and was able to change the passenger side and driver side low beam bulbs from the engine compartment under the hood. On the passenger side, fit your arm between the front of the car and the hose that is above the headlight. You should be able to reach the bulb, disconnect the electrical connection, turn the bulb 45 degrees counterclockwise to remove it, insert the new bulb turning it 45 degrees clockwise to secure it in the hole (be careful not to touch the bulb), and reconnect the electrical connection. I loosened the 3 screws that secure the bulb to make it easier to put in the new one, but that probably isn't necessary. My hand was scraped a bit doing this, but it was not too bad. On the driver side, remove the battery hold-down clamp (there is no need to disconnect the battery connections). Reach into the fender (shine a light there so you can see the bulb connection) and you should be able to reach the bulb and replace it similarly to the other bulb. You may have to move the battery slightly to get your arm in there. Replace the battery hold down clamp when you're done. I accidentally dropped the old bulb in the wheel well, but other than that it went pretty smoothly. Good luck.
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.
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!
