2004 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

CR-V 4-cyl

While driving at night my low beams stopped working and I could smell smoke. It was very dangerous to just all of the sudden have your lights go out. I couldn't see and others couldn't see me. I turned off the light switch, and the smoke smell dissipated. My high beams still worked. I got online after the incident and realized that I was not alone with this exact type of problem. The problem has been isolated by several other CR-V owners as an electrical problem involving the wiring harness that plugs into the headlight/turn signal switch. In addition, I found an article stating that the NHTSA has opened an investigation of this problem (NHTSA recall campaign number EA11012). A call to a Honda dealership resulted in a very expensive quote to replace the whole harness (several hundreds of dollars). I feel that this particular problem is a safety hazard, and that Honda should issue a recall to fix the problem. Updated 12/19/11
