So a wierd thing I just noticed today...my driver's side high beam doesn't seem to be working. I swapped in a new 9005 bulb but the problem persists. When I activate the high beams, only the passenger side high beam comes on. Both the driver's side high beam and the high beam indicator on the dashboard do not come on. :confused:

Is it time to pull out the DRL module and check the connections?

Or do you guys think it might be something else?

Thanks for any feedback or assistance!

Do the DRLs work?

UPDATE:

Ok, so another day and another change. I just noticed today 2 things:

  1. The driver's side high beam no longer works. So now neither of the high beams are functional.
  2. The Daytime Running Lights have stopped working too.
Low beams appear to be fine when I turn them on. My best guess is that the DRL module needs to be refurbished or replaced. Can anyone confirm that these symptoms are indicative of the DRL module?

YET ANOTHER UPDATE:

I haven't had a chance to go look at the vehicle today but I came across a very helpful DIY page with lots of photos on how to refurbish our DRL modules. It's for a Honda but I believe the module is the same in these 1st gen MDXes.
