View Full Version : 1987 Accord HEADLIGHT malfunction...

10-19-2009, 12:03 PM
My headlights are popping up and down and will not stop. So I pulled the 2 fuses out so they would finally stop this repeating action. Anyone have an idea on what the problem could be and how to fix (reasonably)?

PS. Does anyone have a PDF file of the Owners Manual for a 1987 Honda Accord? My used Honda did not come with one.

Two suggestions:

1) Download the 1987 Prelude manual. Prelude probably has some folding headlights so circuit diagram and hardware info should be helpful.

2) Go to autozone.com and check the repair info for your model. May not get down to headlight details, but may be a wiring diagram.

My recollection is this is a vacuum driven system. I would check the actuator and vacuum switching solenoid that supplies vacuum. Bad solenoid might cause your symptoms.

good luck
