I had the same problem a long time ago when we had an '86 Prelude. It
happened whenever I replaced the multifunction stalk on the steering
wheel column. When I plugged the new wire harness into its mate on the
firewall, I inadvertently bent one of the pins just enough so it did
not go into its socket. Took forever to figure it out, as it is in a
tough location to see. Hope this helps!

The button on the dash just raises and lowers the lights. When you turn
the stalk switch: First click, parking lites on. Second click,
Headlights up and headlights on. Turning lites off: First click,
headlights off, parking lites on. Second click, headlights down.

Open the hood and try to operate the popup headlights. If they work
normally, the hood's bent right above the headlights. It doesn't take
much to get the hood to screw up the retractable headlights, so you
won't see it.

If the headlights open and close properly with the hood open, just lower
the hood to the "safety click" position, grab the hood in both hands
right above the headlight, and bend up just a tiny bit.

Might wanna check the fuse... Could be blown if both don't work..
Usually, if a light motor goes, it's just one... Well, unless you are
unlucky and both are shot.. BTW, honda says to pull the fuse if you
are messing with the lights, or need to manually operate. If by some
reason they decide to work, they can really give you a painful pinch.
The 89 accord I have has those things.. Mine work tho.. I knock on
wood... I hear those things aren't cheap if you have to replace the
motor, or whatever it is they use to raise or lower.. If mine quit, I'd

probably just manually raise em, and leave em... Makes the car
kinda bug eyed looking though... Probably adds a slight bit of
extra drag too. The front of the 3rd gen accord is fairly low drag
with the lights down I bet.. I know the front dips down to a pretty
thin
front area. :/

Yabbut, if a motor fuse was blown, the lights wouldn't go up either. They go up
on their own, but not down.

He can turn the lights on, and they pop up as it is... they just don't close on
their own.

According to the manual, it's probably the controller.
Check these pages from the manual. Should give you
an idea what is going on. The file is "Lights.ZIP"
and it's on my briefcase server.. The pages are jpg, and
can be viewed with nearly anything..
