Make sure your ballast isn't getting grounded, and check your connections. Make sure your bulbs are actually secure in the housing. my brother has an EVO, so i am not familiar Acura's headlight bulb. Is it an h4? If so, then make sure the little metal piece that holds the bulb is secure. Also if the ballast body is metal, then make sure that it does not touch ground.

Good luck and hope this helps.

    Almost forgot to make sure the wire harness to the bulb is not stretched and touching anything like the body or other wires.

Left zenon low beam flickers and the left front bulb warning indicator is on


Sounds like the power ballast is failing - that's what takes the 12v signal from the car and amplifies it up to a level sufficient for driving the xenon bulb. Swap the ballasts between the headlights (they're easy to dismount) and see if the flicker goes to the other side (swap only the ballasts - leave the bulbs in their existing positions). If the flicker moves to the other side, the ballast is the problem. If it stays on the left side, the bulb needs replacement.

Search online for the bulbs - the dealer will kill you on pricing (the Audi dealership wants $200 each for my A4's xenon bulbs, but I can find them online for about $30 per pair (or less)). You'd want to order a D2S style bulb for an OEM BMW fitment, in 4300k color temperature.

The 2006 RL headslights are horrible. On low beam there is like a curtain that comes down and you can only barely see the road, and you cannot see anything above the hood of the car! Many people have...


2006 RL headlamps are similar to 2005 TL headlamps. We owned a 2005 TL (great car). The headlamps are HID (high intensity discharge) and many people don't like the sharp cutoff that they have. Your only option other than driving with the high beams on is to have them professionally re-aimed. This may or may not help the problem. Take it to your Acura dealer and talk to the service department about this.

Sorry, I wish there was any easy fix.

1998 acura rl headlights dim


I would think ur low beams are burnt (the bulbs) because that dim light u see should be the daytime running lights, which are usually less bright that the lights turned on.
Verify ur fuses as well for the low beams.
Check on that for now and get back to me if u have questions.
