The Dash llumination Lights and the Radio lights go out when you turn on the Headlights.
Mechanic for Honda: Steve, Honda Mechanic replied 8 years ago
There was a recall for the drivers side multiplex control unit for this problem, for USA market vans. it is located on the back of the fuse box.
If you post your VIN I can tell you if this recall has been done yet.
Do the tail lights work?

Yes Everything works exception for the lights to be able to see how fast you are going and the RPM, Clock and Radio. If you are searching the internet for the problem. It dosent fit the other question that I have found..
Mechanic for Honda: Steve, Honda Mechanic replied 8 years ago
No sir I am not looking on the internet at other complaints. I am looking at Honda's technician web site which shows that there had been a recall for this exact problem.

Here is the Vin number 2HKRL1865XH512489 So I just have to call the Dealer and have them replace it for Free.
Mechanic for Honda: Steve, Honda Mechanic replied 8 years ago
I do show that the recall was done so you will have to pay for the repair unfortunately.

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.

EdUSA

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.

SummerUSA

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.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
