Customer Question
Passenger side headlight is...

Passenger side headlight is not turning on nor is that side high beam only the yellow signal light is working. Not sure what I would parts I would need to fix this. 2005 Acura tl

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Acura. The Acura Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

Thats pretty much it. The problem all started the other day when my battery had died and some one gave me a boost the car started again but right after that the passenger side hightlight stopped working

Mechanic's Assistant: Lots of things can cause problems with the battery. The Acura Mechanic will know what to do. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

The battery has been replace however the headlight never turned back on only the drivers side works

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Acura Mechanic should be aware of about your Acura?

Not that I can think of

Hi there,

There are 2 fuses in the fuse box under the hood, fuse #5 and fuse #6. They should be labeled as such either on the cover of the fuse box or next to the fuses themselves. Either of these could prevent the headlight from working. So check these fuses and let me know. If you find a blown fuse, replace it and see if there is any improvement.

Thanks

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.
