    High-Beam Headlights?

    Hi everyone, good to know there is a forum where everyone has something in common, a Honda CR-V. I just got my 2008 Honda CR-V EX today and I'm so delighted and is my very 1st car. I'm still getting adjusted to my CR-V controls, but it's going pretty smoothly for the most part. Tonight, I was stopped at a police checkpoint, possibly checking for DUI's, luckily I wasn't. I had my head lights turned on to the second setting, which is only one of two settings. The trooper told me not to have my high beam light on, I switched it to the other setting which i believe it is the daylight running headlights and I could barely see the road ahead of me. Is the second setting of the headlights an high beam? Should I be concerned? Thank all you guys for the help, I appreciate it.

    Hi jlee151

    Fun isn't it!

    twist the knob to turn on............raise lever towards steering wheel to flash "hi-beams"..............press lever towards floor, alternately, to switch between "hi" and "lo-beams". (spring loaded switch)

    Hope it gets you going. The info is in the center of the quick start guide "Drivers Controls/Locks".

    If you were running with your high beams on, you would have had a blue indicator light illuminated on the dash. If that indicator light was not on, then you were running low beams and they may be adjusted to high. If that's the case, I would bring it to the dealership where you purchased it, explain to them you were stopped and ask them to adjust the headlights to the proper setting. It is possible they were incorrectly set from the factory.

    I'd suggest reading your ENTIRE owners manual.
