When you have electrical problems like this , it is best to have a schematic on hand. you will have to purchase a manual. there are no free ones online. If it were mine I would remove the fuses block to get to the wires on the back side, find which two went to the headlights ,pull them out and put in a inline fuse. you can replace the whole block, get one at a salvage yard, cut enough wire to give yourself room to work. this very time consuming. Also I have worked on other vehicles and found that the light switch itself was overheating and would loose contact inside the switch. I can't say that I've replaced one in your type of car, But I wouldn't rule it out.

Headlights are not working is it the fuse


both headlights?
many cars have 2 fuse one for left and one for right.
the operators guide shows fuses. fues 45 and 46 (HL left/right)
USA answer, if in Canada, with DRL light, do say so now....
(daylight running light option)
this car has headlight relay,
the HL switch ground the HL relay coil, the coil energizes and
12v power hits both head light fuses. and then lamps.
the lamps are grounded and glow.
the schematic is on alldata.com
easy tests. with any voltmeter.

Both headlights went out same time . bulbs are good . fuses are good. back lights work and high beam works too. what else can it be? and is this common with these cars . 1998 acura 2.5 tl year is 1998 not...


Test the leads to the bulbs while the low beams are on and then when the brights are on. If you have good bulbs & fuses with no power on low, the problem is most likely the bright/dim switch.
Not exactly sure of the Acura layout, but the covers over the steering shaft should remove with several screws to allow access to the switch (usually the turn signals are also the bright/dim switch) Test the leads out to the headlights from the bright/dim switch, that will tell you if the switch is bad.
Airbags are closely involved with this removal/replacement, it is NOT recommended for a amatuer to undertake.
