An overheated wire in the head light harness can cause the low beams not to work. Replacing combination light/turn signal switch switch, the wire for the low beams, and the combination switch connector (if damaged) should repair this issue.

2012 Honda Pilot RecallsThe Airbag System May Not Perform as Designed
During manufacturing, some of the metal rivets used to secure components of the driver's airbag may not have been installed. A missing rivet could alter the performance of the airbag during deployment, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will inspect the driver's airbag module and replace it if necessary.
The vent shut float (VSF) valve case in the fuel tank assembly does not meet design specifications. As a result, fuel may leak from the fuel tank, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the VSF assembly date, and if necessary, replace the fuel tank assembly to correct this concern. The Honda recall numbers are S25 and S26.
