First things first let me define intermittent with respect to these headlights.

When turning the beams on the low beams may not come on. However, by clicking turning it to high beams and then to low beams a few times tends to get the low beams to come on and they will be just fine until you have some more cycling from low beams to high and back again.

My father and I believe that the issue is located in either the relay the switch runs to or in the switch itself. This is one of the problems I have to get fixed before this is street legal. Either way I'm hoping to get it fixed because the car I'm currently driving (an 88 Pontiac Sunbird) has been the cause of numerous problems since the day I bought it. As soon as I get the CRX street legal I'll be getting a head changed out on the Sunbird (The current head keeps shooting the 4th spark plug out no matter how well cut the threads are and how well the plug fits. It's so bad we think the entire head is stripped out in that cylinder :cry: ,) and fixing what ever other problems need to be fixed before I sell the little monster.

Either way any comments or tips on this are appreciated. As a reminder I'm driving a 1st gen 86 Honda CRX standard economy model with the only extra being air conditioning.

We also are hearing some clicking during turns which put the car's weight on the right side but we are fairly sure that the problem is the right front CV joint and we already have a drive shaft to replace it (instead of trying to replace just the joint.)

And pardon the extra rambling >< I'm a scatterbrained college student.

Maybe the 1st gen CRXs are different (though I can't find any evidence to that end) but in 2nd gen CRXs, there is no headlight relay. Headlight power is controlled directly by the switch on the steering column.

Update time.

Weather sucks and has kept me from really getting to the switch. Not to mention that the schematics suck and I just cannot find the relay to save my life.

We did finally get a small break in the weather which my father and I used to quickly change the driveaxle. It's still making that weird whapping sound when I turn it hard though. Dad says we need to change the driver's side driveaxle too but I'm wondering if maybe it's just that the transaxle fluid needs to be drained and or flushed and then have new fluid put in. He's told me I'm doing the next one by myself but now that I've seen how to do it it won't be that hard.
