Have Honda Questions? Ask a Honda Repair Expert.
Hello, do you have a voltt meter or testlight? we need to test some power and ground points
unsure what you have, needs to be able to read 12 volts DC NOT AC volts
ok, now, I must know if you have the auto off headlights or the non auto off hedlaights
sorry, not the question, If lights on, do they turn off automatically when you shut the vehicle off
all the replies are getting to me. you are rushing the post, I have to pull up diagrams, type and reply and by hitting send over and over the post is filling up and hard to work with you. maybe best I opt out and open the post to another expert. One should be along soon to help
I might be able to help. One thing that I can add is the fact that your high beams work tells me that the relays and fuses are good. The difference between high beam ad low beam is controlled by the headlight switch an which circuit it grounds, either high bean or low beam. If you could access the headlight switch connector I could give you some tests to try. I am assuming this is a base model Odyssey LX not an Ex or EX-L. There are some differences between the two.
weird, not sure why it doubled up on that post
If we go with it being an EXL then lets see what tests I can give you
I am like you and kinda new to the system. Most people do not respond to me right away and we end up going back and forth for a 1/2 day or more. I was away from my computer fr a couple hours this morning.
I am not sure what your capabilities are but if you can manage to get the covers off of the steering column that surround your combination switch I can give you a test that should determine if you have a bad combination switch.
ok , if you manage to find the connector of the combination switch there should be 2 white/red wires in the connector. The light switch should ground those wires to turn on the low beam lights. If you could manage to back probe those wires with a pin or paper clip or something like that, then turn the light switch on and ground either of those wires and see if the low beam bulb lights up. One controls the left and the other is for the right. Hope this is helpful.
You would need a jumper wire to connect the pin or paper clip to ground.
Thanks, ***** ***** advise was helpful in helping you understand your head light problem.
I too will be on vacation , I will be back Monday
