Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The contact owns a 2004 Honda CR-V. the contact stated the low beam headlights stopped working sporadically. The failure occurred several times and as temporary fix she verified the fuse were damaged and replaced the headlights. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who was unable to diagnose the failure. The manufacturer was not made aware of the problem. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 110,000 and the current mileage was 230,000. Updated 11/23/11 updated 12/05/11

The low-beam headlight switch fails repeatedly. When I replaced it, I noticed what appears to be heat damage on the wiring harness connector. I have replaced the combination low-beam/high-beam/turn signal unit three times in the last 7 months. Updated 01/17/12

2004 Honda CR-V. both headlight low beams stopped functioning at the same time. High beams still work on both headlights. Replacing headlight lamps and fuses did not fix the problem (both low beams still not functioning). I will be going to a mechanic this coming week to get repairs. I suspect it is a malfunctioning electrical switch.

I have replaced the headlight bulbs four times in the last year and a half in my 2004 Honda CRV. The first three times I replaced them myself. The fourth time I took my 2004 Honda CRV to the dealership to have the electrical system checked to ensure there was not a short. The dealership proclaimed everything was fine and replaced the headlight bulbs. So far they have lasted six months. I will be surprised if they last another month.

problem #3

May 222011

CR-V

  • 118,000 miles
Both low beam headlights failed simultaneously. Subsequently repaired at a Honda dealer. Repair required a new hi/lo beam switch and connector/wiring harness. I requested old parts and upon inspection, one of the metal connector pins (male and female) was discolored (black) due to heating with some distortion and discoloration of the connector block due to heating. Attached wire also discolored due to heating.
