Both front low beam headlights suddenly went out while driving the Honda 2006 CRV. It was quite dangerous as suddenly could not see anything in the dark. The front low beam headlight bulbs were replaced several times since 2010 as they surprisingly only lasted half to a year. The last time only last two month! we have not experienced any of this light bulb problems with our civic and Odyssey. Something might be wrong with the Honda 2006 CRV.

Excessive burnouts and shorting of driver's side low beam headlight. Replacing bulbs every six months on my 2006 Honda CRV. Occasionally, bulb would work intermittently after replacement. Now, even new bulbs don't work. In last instance, both low beams appear to have burned out at same time (fortunately during daylight hours). Updated 08/24/11 the dealer informed the consumer they often have to slightly bend the head light housing with the bulb to get the proper metal to contact, which was the case with the consumers head light.

I purchased a 2006 Honda CR-V 2 years ago. My trade in vehicle was a 1997 Honda CR-V. since shortly after purchasing my car, I have had a recurring problem with the headlights blowing out, and sometimes the dome light inside the passenger area of the car. The headlights are blowing out on average, every two months. During the last year or 2 before trading the 1997 CR-V, I had similar problems with the headlights blowing on that vehicle also. I purchased my car from hendricks Honda in charleston, SC. I have most of my service, including oil changes, done at that dealers service department. I have repeatedly asked that they investigate the problem, and have been told repeatedly that there is no electrical problem with the car. I visited superior Honda recently in orangeburg South Carolina. The service department manager there told me that in recent months, he was aware of at least one CR-V owner and several owners of civics who have come back and forth to their dealership because of similar problems with headlights blowing out. Hendricks Honda advised against contacting the corporation and said it would likely refer the matter back to them. I commute to work 120 miles round trip daily. I have been stopped on numerous occasions by police officers and highway patrolmen regarding one of my headlights being out. I now carry copies of the service requests showing that I reported the problem with the headlights during my visits to the dealership. I show these to the office as proof that the problem is recurring and I have been attempting to resolve it. I have been unable to get the service department at the dealership where I purchased the car to take the issue seriously and/or to try to determine the source of the problem. I have check to see if there are any recalls related to this problem, or any service bulletins, and have found none. Post script: There are numerous "incident dates". the one listed is the most recent.
