Headlight

Asked by May 17, 2017 at 12:44 AM about the 2002 Acura RL 3.5 FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 02 Acura RL. Last year I replaced both hid
headlight ballasts & bulbs. Recently when I drive it
at night the right headlight cuts off. But if I shut the
headlights off & back on it comes back on for a
little while but cuts off again. Any ideas what could
be causing this?

either a bad ground or you have another ballistic failing. I pulled the HID's out and went with bright white LED's I get a much better pattern and increased UV for seeing signs and highway markers way down the road, also picks up vehicles sitting off the side of the road a lot sooner than the HID's did.

Did you ever get your headlight fix? I have a 2002 Acura RL with the same issue with my headlights, I am thinking about taking to Acura dealership but worried it going to cost too much. How did you fix yours and how much did it cost?
