Icon5 Headlight problem

I have a 1998 Prelude SH. My drivers headlight went out the other day. I replaced the bulb it but it appears yellow and both bulbs put off little light. Also when I turn on the bright both lights on the drivers side go out. The passenger side works fine. Any ideas what this might be?? Thank you for any help..

Re: Headlight problem

have you checked the fuse? did you make sure you connected the harness to the correct spot? Sometimes people accidently hook the high beam harness to the low beam bulb since both are the same

Re: Headlight problem

I had that same problem when my ballast went out minus the plugging in the wrong ones :P Just check your fuse box, should be a 2 10amp fuses right next to each other in the fusebox under the hood..

Re: Headlight problem

It was the fuse. I replaced the bulb and the connector and everything is perfect now. Thanks for all the help !!!!
