The low beam headlights can become inoperative decreasing the driver's visibility as well as the vehicle's visibility to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.

Exterior Lighting — Headlights — High/Low Beam Dimmer Switch

Summary
Honda is recalling model year 2007-2008 Honda Fit vehicles. Due to an error during installation of the wiring harness for the combination switch that controls low head beam function, the wires for the lower beam circuit were pulled tighter than intended. After repeated use of the headlight switch, the electrical connector terminal for the low beam headlight circuit can become worn as a result of this tension, which can result in low conductivity and cause an accumulation of copper oxide in the area of the contacts.
Actions
Dealers will inspect the low beam terminal and perform necessary repairs free of charge. The safety recall began on January 24, 2011. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
