Couldn't you just go with parts from France or Germany since they have the LED's and are left hand drive cars?
Yes you could. The worst that could happen is you get some A-hole cop or if you have a state inspection and there is no DOT number stamped on the light and you get dinged for it.Couldn't you just go with parts from France or Germany since they have the LED's and are left hand drive cars?
Maybe a bad connection. Try unplugging the socket and plug back in. Do you have any aftermarket lighting/mods? My DRL was acting up just like yours, and I ended up removing the aftermarket turn signal switchbacks that the previous owner had installed (one of the signal bulbs were defective,) and put OEM side marker lights back in, and the issue went away. Also, is there any visible moisture in the headlight assembly? That might cause an intermittent problem too.LED DRL has an issue that's causing me to fail my state's safety inspection. On the passenger side, the DRL will come on as soon as the car is in 1st gear but turns off immediately after. The driver side DRL works completely fine. What are my options?
Just made a small edit. I just walked back inside from playing around with the socket. Still turns off and on immediately. No aftermarket mods. There was prior water sitting in the assembly (I had a previous post about a month ago detailing the issue with my HID lights, on a different account - had some issues with it. I believe you helped me out there as well) but the water and moisture is all cleared up now. It didn't start doing this until after the water was fully drained. The first few days after it started having problems, the DRL would come back on after a small amount of time, but now it's not doing that at all.Maybe a bad connection.

Makes me wonder about the moisture that was in the assembly and what you did to get rid of it. Possible that the individual bulbs/ leds(?) in the DRL group that have burned out got damaged or hit with more moisture when you were trying to clear the moisture out of the assembly. [Did you take them apart to remove the moisture?] I didn't look at them too closely, since they started working before I needed to investigate more.
Fact is, that I had two different issues with mine that I hope haven't caused some confusion:
1) My (left side) DRL problem was NOT a moisture issue, but related to an aftermarket turn signal malfunction, which was fixed by returning to the OEM side marker/signal set up.
2) The moisture problem was in my other CR-Z and in the right lens, and did not burn out any bulbs, but there was at least a couple of ounces of water still in the assembly after I thought I dried it out completely with a fan and blow dryer blowing at it for a 24hr. period.
I had to take the assembly completely apart to get all the water out (the extra 2 ounces that was hidden/trapped in the recesses of the assembly. From my understanding, the separate lights of the DRL's of the 2013+ models can be replaced if you can find the right replacements and soldier new ones in, but the most common/easy fix (but expensive) is to replace the whole light assembly, since those individual lights are sealed/soldiered in from the factory. Perhaps there is someone who does repair them, but you'd have to find if such a person is actually out there and available to do the work.
No problem. I also sent you a link to download the FSM. Hopefully it will help you in diagnosing a bit more what might be going on.this is great, gonna check these out and run some diagnostics here pretty soon. I really appreciate these!
Hello, I would like to explain my problem which I have with my CR-Z. I have 2015 EX CVT. I have problem with my DRL LED in driver side: when I start an engine ( engine is cold) everything working perfect. But after few minutes of driving driver side LED is going to turn of. I tried everything: switch to low beam then to position AUTO - LED is coming on again and after that immediately turns off and etc. I checked fuse - it's ok. I see some pictures in before chat to check grounding and relays. Grounding looks like ok. But how about relay ? If anybody can tell me or show a picture where a LED DRL relays sits in the car ? I'm new in this car so not experienced. I'm trying to search a problem already 3 months and nothing. I don't want to change whole headlight even I can see that LEDs are ok because sometimes they are working, so no sense to change whole headlight, isn't it ? BTW, I removed a front bumper, then whole headlight, disconnect all cables, then put everything back - no changes.
I need help to solve this problem ! Thanks !
Thank you for your answer !As it goes off when it warms up you have a short or heat related issue. Look closely at all wiring you can get to for pinches cuts etc. Especially look at the wires where they enter connectors there maybe corrosion or the wires may have come loose from their pins. It may also be within the light unit itself which would require you to replace the unit or take it apart and repair it and you may not even be able to do that. I doubt it is a relay or any of the other issues you mentioned as it works properly when cold. As it is a 2015, it is out of warranty unless you bought Honda Care so that is not an option. When you run out things you can do with your own skills and patience you may need to resort to a Honda dealer but don't be surprised if they just tell you to replace the whole headlight capsule.
The part number is 33151-SZT-A31 and from Honda Parts now the price is $462.48 Rock Auto shows as out of stock. Probably less expensive from other sources.
Since only one side is affected it is probably not a relay. Location of relays is in this topic aboveThank you for your answer !
Maybe you know where I can find a LED relay in CR-Z ? Because I cannot find it. I will try to check wires next time more carefully. And also anyone have any schematic for this cars or where it is able to buy all service manual ?
