Question about 2008 Acura Rl
I CHECKED FOR VOLTAGE AT HEADLIGHT CONNECTOR NON PRESENT. WHEN I CONNECT THE LAMP THE FUSE BLOWES TWO SECONDS AFTER TURNING ON HEADLIGHT. IS THERE A CAPACITOR IN THIS CIRCUIT?
Hi,welcome to fix ya. what happens is water gets in the headlight lens and migrates into the igniter for the HID bulb that is bolted to the bottom of the lens and shorts it out. you will need to replace the inverter/igniter and the lens to cure this problem.

Tips for a great answer:
Lamp control module (LCM)
Switch of the RH IP fuse block headlamp relay position J
When the headlamp switch is placed in the ON position, battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied via CKT 10 (YEL) to the coil of the headlamp relay position J. The coil is permanently grounded to G201 via CKT 1450 (BLK). The coil is energized and the contacts close providing battery positive voltage (B+) to the headlamp dimmer switch via CKT 1346 (LT BLU). When the headlamp dimmer switch is in the LOW position, battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied via CKT 12 (TAN) to the following components:
Left low beam headlamp
Right low beam headlamp The LCM provides battery positive voltage (B+) via CKT 1346 (LT BLU) through the headlamp dimmer switch to the headlamps under the following conditions:
The ignition switch is in the RUN position.
The ambient light sensor indicates darkness.
The lamp control module (LCM) monitors the ambient light conditions through the ambient light sensor. The ambient light sensor is a variable resistor whose resistance changes as the surrounding ambient light level changes. As the ambient light decreases, the resistance of the ambient light sensor increases. The LCM measures the resistance across the ambient light sensor and determines whether it is day or night.
