#18 of 27 Headlight Aiming?
Mar 08, 2008 (7:11 pm)
I need to align my 2008 Pilots headlights. Where is the right/left adjustment screw? The vertical adjustment screw is almost dead center of the light housing, but I can't find where to do the horizontal adjustment?
#19 of 27 Honda Pilot Fog Lights
Mar 28, 2008 (5:26 pm)
I have a 2008 Pilot and I'm trying to figure ot what the little metal "shield" is on the fog light bulbs. I find that my fog lights are almost useless because they are aimed at the ground about 40' in front of the car. I know fog lights are supposed to be aimed low, but these are only good as cornering lamps.

I think they are called deflector. The intent of fog lights are for short distances, as you have indicated, If you can see farther than 40 feet in a foggy situation, you probably don't need fog lights for the situation.

Thanks for your input. I understand the whole fog light theory. 40', travelling at even 30mph is inadequate lighting. I've had fog lights on pretty much every car I've owned and never had a problem with aiming and getting "flashed" by oncoming drivers. I guess my question is, has anyone removed the shields aroung the bulbs to see what effect it has. The lens should do the "cutoff" of the light comming off the reflector in the light. If I remove the shield, will it cause a problem?

We purcahsed a 2003 Honda Pilot new and we continue to have one or the other headlights burn out within a 4-6 month time frame
Is this a problem with a 2003 Honda Pilot or is there soemthing I should be looking for ?
I replace them with the Silver Star bulbs a price of $ 22.00 +/- each

Buy the PIAA one .... silver star is too hot for long life. Sylvania web site says the avg life (no DRL) is a little over a year.

#25 of 27 Now the high beams do not work
Jan 28, 2013 (8:31 pm)
We took our 2005 pilot in for the recall on the low beam switch problems, which we had none, about 3 month ago. Now the high beams just quit working. No high beam when we hit the switch and no high beam indicator light either. I can see one light burning out but both at the same time along with the dashboard indicator light not comming on. Anyone have this happen? My guess is that something happened to the switch they replaced. May be it came unplugged?

This sounds like a fuse is blown actually. Look in your manual to see what fuse it is and what else the fuse controls. If those other items are not working, then just go to Autozone (or equivelent) and get the fuse for a couple bucks. Save yourself a bunch of money.

OK SO I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER BECAUSE THEY WORKED ON IT LAST. THEY SAID THAT THE SWITCH HAD GONE BAD. THEY ALSO SAID "NO CHARGE" ON THE REPAIR. HERE'S WHAT I THINK, WHEN THEY DID THE RECALL WORK ON THE LOW BEAM SWITCH THEY SCREWED UP THE WORK. THE HONDA DEALER DID NOT SAY ANYTHING EXCEPT THAT IT WORKS NOW DUE TO A BAD SWITCH. EITHER WAY AT LEAST ITS FIXED.
