Turned on headlights 3 days ago to go out.. no low beams! High beams worked, so ran my errand.
Yesterday I tried them again...worked!!.....then they quit 30 mins later. Auto parts guy said it sounded like the combination headlight/turn signal assembly. So I bought one and replaced it today......no change. Still no low beams. I don't think is a bulb issue as both bulbs did work for a time. Same for the fuses as high beams work and I think there is one fuse for high/low beams per side. Am I missing something? Suggestions?... or is this one for auto shop?

Restored low beams today! Moral is ...never assume. Pulled bulb connector to check for wear and rust. Decided to check bulb resistance....open? But they previously worked for 30 mins.!? Measured other bulb...open!.. Both blown.
After a trip to the auto store for new bulbs and several cuss words trying to reinstall the bulb clips, both beams working.
Took my original combo switch apart to find charring (burnt) contacts. The electrical grease inside had liquified. Some web research showed this is a known common issue for early Honda models using this type headlight switch. Hopefully the new switch (after market) will last a few years.
