I have an 06 CRV SE, not only have I had many problems with the headlights, I have also lost most of the backlighting in all of my dash switches. I have had this fixed a few times and it is getting very dark again. I have never seen such a thing!
Is anyone checking your car for wiring issues? Or just replacing the bulbs?

'05 cr-v. Bought this baby used in August. Headlight bulb went within a couple weeks. Replaced both with brighter ones. Now December and both headlights just went out at the same time. Filaments burned, bulb bases burned, holders burned. Something is drawing but not enough to pop 20amp fuse.

Just bought a new 2013 CRV. The high beams don't work the way they should. The lights are dim and diffused and what I see are circles and black spots that are probably due to the metal cap over the lights. I don't see the road, but what I see are the tops of trees and signs. The dealer says they can't do anything!!!
So am I just supposed to guess where I am on dark roads?

Visit your dealer in the evening and ask to take another 2013 CRV around the parking lot or the block and compare. If your headlights are shining towards the treetops, a test drive by your service manager at night, with you in the passenger seat, should certainly prove your point.

I did that and it proved my point. But, the dealership still says they can't do anything. I wrote to American Honda and the National Highway Safety Admin. Thinking about HID lights. Does anyone have any information on how they would work in the CRV?

Nice job of investigating! You might consider going into the Honda headlight fixing business! Thanks for your time.
I think Honda should go into the headlight fixing business. I hate working on electrical problems. Especially if there is a computer involved. It is always intermittent. Give me something mechanical anyday. Maybe we should all sign a petition to Honda that says we will not buy another Honda until they do something about this. Media sources love this kind of thing. Manufacturers loves when we solve the current problem by buying their next one.

MN native: 2005 CRV - at 27k headlights started to burn out every 6 months. 90k on CRV and down to replacing every 4 months. Our Honda dealership denies hearing about any trouble with headlights??? I'm taking my IPAD (they have free wireless there) and show the service manager these posts. It can't hurt.

You are right about the media. I do think there should be class action or a petition to the media. We have defective vehicles!! I'm driving at night while squinting and praying.

I even mentioned HID lights to the dealer. But, he said the position of the bulb wouldn't change and that I'd still see the tops of distant trees, but not the road. I wonder if the brightness would help in some way. Does anyone have any info on HID lights?

Not sure what you mean....did the other 2013 CRV you drove have the same headlight issue, or was it better than yours? If the other car was OK and the dealer says they can't fix yours, ask them to take your car back and give you another one. They can't sell you a car with defective headlights.

i have an '05 honda crv, and it, also, has the bulb problem! I can' tell you how many times a year we put new bulbs in, only to have it happen again. We have also had problems with the dome light. How do we find out about recalls or get one started?

The other CRV I drove had the same problem. It's the miserable design. But, the dealer knows this. How can they sell these defective cars?

The're just as bad as American Honda. Between the awful service at the dealer and the awfully designed car, I'm so angry and I'm about to write to the media here.

It would be good to get some sort of recall. More people have to write to American Honda.

I own a 2006 CR-V and have had to replace the 2 front low beam bulbs in the last 6 months , this time they went out while I was driving on a back country road late at night. Talk about scary, now I am afraid to drive this vehicle at night. that is how close I came to dying as it was snowing and on a curve that it happened , pitch dark and was almost in ditch by the time I got high beams working. Has anyone got a number for Honda where you actually get a response?

Ivan, check back through this thread. There's information about a possible recall and technical information about the problem.

2005 CRV
Just changed my driver's side bulb for the 3rd time since I've owned this car (2008). In a couple of weeks I'll be changing the passenger side, count on it. Thought I was alone with this problem. Honda needs to own up and start fixing our cars for free. I now consider myself fortunate that at least I haven't lost both of mine on a dark road like the others. Like the rest of you, I've never had to change bulbs so often. It's frustrating!

.....or, do a little quick research on this thread and find out that it's a known wiring problem and get it fixed.

Post #90 refers to models 02-04 Not 05 and 06. I wish people would stop telling 05-06 owners to look at post #90. Stop wasting people's time.

Yes, post 90 referred to 02-04s, but the point was that perhaps other years had the same wiring problem. If your time is that precious, perhaps you should just go to the dealer. I'm sure they'll take good care of you.

I filed a complaint with Transport Canada. They are on the web for the Canucks out there. Do likewise.

Not sure who Americans sqwuak to but find out and do it. If only one or two complaints come in they are unlikely to take it seriously. If the powers that be get dozens of complaints then things will happen. It doesn't take anymore time to email them than it does to gripe among ourselves. Only the former is likely to get action. Blessings.
