Open the hood. Look directly behind the head light assembly. There will be two bolts or two metal/plastic tabs that you have to pull up on. Most likely tabs. One could be hidden under the radiator cover. Pull out on the assembly, if something is still holding it, it is just pop out tabs. pull straight out. Twist out the socket and install in reverse order.
Check reverse light circuit, possible switch on transmission or burned-out bulbs. Is there power to the bulb socket when the key is on and trans in reverse? Use a test light to check for power at the connector.
I had this problem with my 2007 Honda CRV -- all the lights worked EXCEPT the tail/running lights and the license plate light. The other tail lights worked -- brake, reverse, indicators, and hazards. Front headlights also worked, but when the headlights went on the back tail lights did not (not to safe for driving at night!!) The fuse was #15 in the interior fuse box (under the dash driver side) with the label "small exterior lights" ( also check fuse #19 labeled "small lights main"). The cause of my problem, I believe, is a bad or lose wire in my license plate light.
open engine compartment, reach in behind headlamp housing and twist the outtermost ring on the headlamp bulb to reslease it from the lamp housing.
Being careful not to touch the new lamp bulb... replace the new bulb in reverse of the removal.
first disconnect batt positive. jack vehicle up on passenger side. you can see starter at rear of engine. you may have to remove plastic around bellhousing to remove starter. There are two bolts holding starter in place.usually 15 mm socket. there is a small nut holding wire. 5/16 or 11/32 socket.. remove it. large nut usually 13mm socket. once removed just reverse procedure. leave comment if successful.
If it does not do it in park or neutral, it could be a number of things. One being a sticking Torque Converter Clutch solenoid (TCC). It could be that it needs a simple tune-up. How often does this problem happen?
