Question about 2001 Acura 3.2CL

1 Answer

I have an Acura 3.2 CL Type S (2001) ... The driver side headlight would work sometimes and sometimes it wouldn't. I took it to Acura and they replaced the bulb ... A month later the same light is doing it again ... I went to Acura today on my lunch break and was told that the bulb is working fine but that the Valence Switch is out and needs to be replaced for a whopping $750!!!! I was going to be paying $950 for the 105K service but now this! Please offer any assistance (any place I can get a certified bodyshop to do the work or if I'm being taken advantage of). I can't drive around with my headlight not working yet the 105K service is super important as well. I live in Atlanta, GA. Thanks a Bunch for your help.

It is more than likely the headlight igniter based off of the price you were quoted.Ask your Acura dealer for a discount if you are a regular customer. Talk to the service manager.

TL take a D2S type HID bulb available online. If the ballast unit is bad you can find them on ebay a lot cheaper. It's located on the bottom of the headlight. I've even seen full headlight units with the bulb and ballast unit included for a couple hundred on ebay. That would be the easier way to go if you aren't handy with car work. To replace the bulb you need to pull the whole headlight out because Acura uses a security type bolt to secure the back cup onto the headlight. Once the headlight is off the car it's easy to remove the security bolt though with needle nose plyers

I hate to say this, but sometimes they're all connected on a shared ground circuit; and in your case the shared circuit happens to be underneath the hood on the front of the left side fender. Now, there is another ground for the security hood switch. As far as the check engine lamp coming on, it may be a wsie choice to take the vehicle to have the ECM checked for any lingering codes. AutoZone has a free service for scanning engine codes.

I have a 2001 Acura 3.2 TL headlight goes on and off


As with Laurenson 538, I have the same problem with my 2001 CL.

Should this problem with the 2001 Acuras be a recall issue? I, too, have replaced the headlight assembly ($1,000 plus). The old one (sealed[?]) had moisture in it... the reported cause of the light burning out. Within a short period, the $1000 replacement had moisture in it and has just burned out again.

Now, at a different Acura agency, I'm told that the bulb needs another $1,000 replacement. When I asked about the warranty, I was advised 90 days was the warranty. When I asked if I was expected to spend $1,000 every 90 days to be able to drive the car, the rep got defensive.
Writing Acura resulted in a big Zero. Before buying a new Acura, one might inquire about the headlights. Since one can't drive without headlights, maybe Acuras should be reserved for daylight driving only! Have a backup car for night driving!
