We were driving from reno nv to antioch CA and were in the sierra mountains at about 2:30 am and all of the sudden we lost our low beam head lights in which we couldn't see the road and we went off the road we avoided an accident because I knew how to steer the vehicle to avoid hitting anything we got out and attempted to see why we didn't have the low beams and could not see why we clicked the high beams and they worked and we proceeded to drive with the high beam headlights on.

Due to the impact my bumper tore off, my headlights broke, my hood was smashed in and the front end of the car was smashed in. Why weren't the air bags deployed?? that is our concern? my son could have died in this crash due to faulty air bags. We have pictures of the crash.

This is not a complaint against the car I am driving, but I'm not sure how else to share this concern. The new headlights in cars are too bright. They hurt a person's eyes. Even people who aren't sensitive to light are complaining about having to look away from oncoming traffic because the lights are simply too bright. Not being able to keep an eye on oncoming traffic seems silly. Drivers need to be able to see what the oncoming car is doing, not be blinded by the light and forced to look away. This will lead to many more accidents from something that was originally intended to be an improvement. These lights should be banned and removed from the market.

I received a recall notice in sept. Of 2012 for the wiring on the low beam headlights, at that time the dealer didn't have the parts for repairs. Finally I am getting around to getting it corrected. But when I called the dealer they refused to schedule this repair because they said this VIN# does not exist. I called Honda of USA but they wouldn't say what the problem is,but if isend a copy of my license and registration they would review & advise. My car is titled ,tagged ,registered with this VIN. Now it is recalled. How am I supposed to proceed with recall 12v-136 if the dealer refuses service.

I noticed that my low-beam headlights were not working. However, the high beams and parking lights worked. I attempted to replace a bulb and noticed that the plastic electrical connection to both headlights had melted.

As I was driving home in my vehicle at night. The low beam headlights went out suddenly, my high beam lights work so I was alble to make it home. This problem was corrected before on a recall campain. Now my question is can this problem be fixed again free of charge? and is there a better fix for this problem? I have replaced both bulbs with no avail. It seems to be the same problem again. Being a safety issue on my vehicle and possibly other drivers.

Low beam headlights went out without warning. Headlight bulbs are not burnt out but will not come back on. Hi beam headlights are operative. Failure is similar to the campaign number 04v086000 but Honda will not repair because they say my VIN number is not in the recall. Not sure why, but at high speed this could have very easily caused a serious accident.

Headlights go off sometimes on their own. I think this is the same problem that caused a recall on the 2002-2003 Civics. Apparently 2004's are having problems with this also. I have seen several complaints online.

Failure Date: 05/28/2013

Main headlights failed for a time period (~15 minutes) at various times. Had the car for 2 years and problem occurred at least 4 times. The last time was last week when there was a terrible storm. First time when it was snowing really hard. The other two times the weather was just fine, no rain or snow. Took the vehicle to the Honda dealer twice, but both times the dealer said they can't do anything because they can't duplicate the problem. Very disappointed with Honda.

Failure Date: 09/07/2012

Driving at highway speed, moving from twilight to night, I suddenly noticed the headlights were not operating on either side. We pulled over to check the bulbs, fuses, and relays which all appeared in good condition. The parking lights still worked and we discovered the high beam lights still worked. We were in a rural area so there was no place to stop before our destination to either get repairs or wait for daylight, so we had to continue on with high beams. I called our Honda dealer today (9/25/12) to report the problem, knowing that the headlight recall had recently been expanded to 2003 model year, but they were not helpful. They offered to charge me for repair but did not suggest how to report the defect to NHTSA or otherwise resolve the problem.

Low beam headlights failed to work when driver switched from high to low beam. American Honda motor company and local dealer contacted. I was informed that this individual vehicle was not a part of NHTSA campaign 04v086000. I would like to register my complaint as I find it ironic that the same problem would occur on vehicles not included in the original recall.
