Honda CR-V Under Investigation for Headlight Failures; Recall Possible

Honda CR-V Under Investigation for Headlight Failures; Recall Possible

If you own a 2002 to 2004 Honda CR-V it could be the subject of a recall in the near future after federal safety regulators announced an investigation into headlight failures for those model years.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has announced an early investigation into almost 300,000 of the Honda soft-roaders after receiving 12 complains that the vehicles headlights stopped working. According to a statement released by NHTSA, the issue seems to revolve around a headlight switch and wiring harness, which could become damaged from overheating.

As of yet, no official recall has been issued.

    My 2006 CRV has the same issue. Lowbeam on passengerside goes out every 5 – 7 weeks. I see LOTs of other people have the same problem.

    My daughter has a 2006 CRV and lights went out while driving luckily she didn’t crash.. Replaced bulbs didn’t touch bulbs because guy at autozone said not to. The passsenger side works well but driver side only barely shines and goes out if brights are turned on. Does anyone have any suggestions.
