Is it not blowing? If it is not blowing any air, through the vents, then the blower motor is bad for the a/c heating system.

I having a same problem as you.
I have changed Head light (general head light 12V 37W)
I plug out inverter connector and connect 12V 37W bulb directly
It works fine.

most newer vehicles have individual fuses and or relays that controls each headlight separately, check the fuse panel under the hood, inside the lid there is usually a listing of what the fuses and relays do. look for drivers side low beam and take a look at the fuse, if it blown, try to replace the fuse, but there is usually a reason why it blew in the first place.
How did you test to see if the bulb was still good? ive seen dead bulbs that still look ok, try and plug the bulb from the non working side into the working side and double check.

The headlights run thru the multifunction switch, turnsignal switch. this is your most likely culprit.

p1399 for Acura is a random misfire possibly caused by a bad Oxygen sensor.

Cyl. 2 misfire points to either an injector not firing or the spark plug not firing on that cylinder.

Testing The easiest way to test the operation of the fuel injectors is to listen for a clicking sound coming from the injectors while the engine is running. This is accomplished using a mechanic's stethoscope, or a long screwdriver. Place the end of the stethoscope or the screwdriver (tip end, not handle) onto the body of the injector. Place the ear pieces of the stethoscope in your ears, or if using a screwdriver, place your ear on top of the handle. An audible clicking noise should be heard; this is the solenoid operating. If the injector makes this noise, the injector driver circuit and computer are operating as designed. Continue testing all the injectors this way.
Be extremely careful while working on an operating engine, make sure you have no dangling jewelry, extremely loose clothes, power tool cords or other items that might get caught in a moving part of the engine.
All Injectors Clicking If all the injectors are clicking, but you have determined that the fuel system is the cause of your driveability problem, continue diagnostics. Make sure that you have checked fuel pump pressure as outlined. An easy way to determine a weak or unproductive cylinder is a cylinder drop test. This is accomplished by removing one spark plug wire at a time, and seeing which cylinder causes the least difference in the idle. The one that causes the least change is the weak cylinder.
If the injectors were all clicking and the ignition system is functioning properly, remove the injector of the suspect cylinder and bench test it. This is accomplished by checking for a spray pattern from the injector itself. Install a fuel supply line to the injector (or rail if the injector is left attached to the rail) and momentarily apply 12 volts DC and a ground to the injector itself; a visible fuel spray should appear. If no spray is achieved, replace the injector and check the running condition of the engine.
One or More Injectors are not Clicking Unplug the fuel injector connector 91055p01.jpg

Probe the two terminals of a fuel injector to check it's resistance 91055p04.jpg

Plug the correct "noid" light directly into the injector harness connector 91055p02.jpg

If the correct "noid" light flashes while the engine is running, the injector driver circuit inside the PCM is working 91055p03.jpg

If one or more injectors are found to be not operating, testing the injector driver circuit and computer can be accomplished using a "noid" light. First, with the engine not running and the ignition key in the OFF position, remove the connector from the injector you plan to test, then plug the "noid" light tool into the injector connector. Start the engine and the "noid" light should flash, signaling that the injector driver circuit is working. If the "noid" light flashes, but the injector does not click when plugged in, test the injector's resistance.
If the "noid" light does not flash, the injector driver circuit is faulty. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Unplug the "noid" light from the injector connector and also unplug the PCM. Check the harness between the appropriate pins on the harness side of the PCM connector and the injector connector. Resistance should be less than 5.0 ohms; if not, repair the circuit. If resistance is within specifications, the injector driver inside the PCM is faulty and replacement of the PCM will be necessary.

Change the bad fuel injector or computer as necessary.

There is a company in Michigan that is offering remanufactured mirrors for a hundred bucks or so. I will try to find the name/number for you. But a Google search might help you since the company serves many makes.
You will have to fill out a claim form and take photos of the front/back and harness before they will send you a mirror.

You can try to get it repaired, but a used unit will be cheaper and probably live longer.
The unit is modular in that the radio and cd changer are two separate units. A ribbon cable and some screws connect them. If you are able to get just the changer part of the same year (TL/CL) it will work.
Clocks are independent if they are housed outside of the radio unit.

It is the code - here is how it has to be done without costing you a bunch of money - Every time the battery is disconnected this has to be done: If you have jumped or replaced the battery at anytime this will happen. You have to get the serial number off the radio by removing it or partially taking it out to see the numbers on it try not to remove any cords. With the stereo out (to make sure you get the right number off of it) call an Acura dealership with the number and they will give you the another number to enter into the stereo and directions on how to punch the numbers in. Make sure while you have the stereo out you write the serial number down and keep it in a safe place also the number that the Acura dealership gives you because if you sell the car or if it happens again its easily accessible. Good Luck!

You will have to go to dealer to have unlocked. The vehicle has built in theft lock system in radio. Most of them have code stored in radio that needs to be pulled before removing battery.
