Headlight

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

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.
