The outside temperature where I live recently dipped to below -20F. At this time my headlights stopped turning on. When I turn the engine on, the DRLs come on as normal. One click on light arm turns the parking lights on along with the DRLs. The second click should turn the headlights on but instead the DRLs go out and just the parking lights stay on - no headlights.

    Check your fuses and relays. The cheapest an easiest way to check the relay is to replace it with another one that is in the car already. It needs to be the same part number though. I know GM puts the part number on top of the relay but not sure about honda. You may also have a bad switch that operate head lights. Faulty connection in switch.

    Thanks. I'll check the fuses and relays first. It sounds like the most logical place to start!
