If I may ask, what brand and type of led blub did you use for the replacement? looking for suggestions to do mine.
I’ve had this feature on my Ridgeline for one day, but on my odyssey for two years. Literally last night, the first day of ownership I was coming down the ski hill in the fog, and yes, of course there highbeams kept coming on in the fog. Other than that I found them to be very accurate and considerate of other drivers.Your lights are set on "Auto". You can adjust the switch and should go manual. Your guide should describe this to you.
I've actually left them in Auto for the full year I've had them, and I only had one issue with the high beams turning on in a heavy fog. Went manual then, but otherwise things have been good.
Actually, after I wrote this I went through fog on the Texas coase, and I experienced the same thing.I’ve had this feature on my Ridgeline for one day, but on my odyssey for two years.

If you continue holding the lever after the one blink at 30 seconds, do you not get two blinks at around 40 seconds?Hate this feature and am unable to turn the auto high beam off no matter what I try. No matter how long I hold the lever back I get one blink at around 30 seconds.
Thanks.You make many valid points and those are very fair questions. I had a transmission failure (not engine failure) in a "new" (not "secondhand") Ridgeline, but that was just one of dozen problems with the 2019 Ridgeline - some of which continued after repair attempts. I also had several problems...www.ridgelineownersclub.com
I didn't realize it came with the HPD (Helicopter Propulsion Device). Now, I just need to find a ride to the dealer to go pick it up. UPDATE: This isn't my truck. See this post.www.ridgelineownersclub.com
I received the following reply from the IIHS:I have reached out to IIHS for clarification on whether or not they actually test the automatic high beam feature or simply add the high-beam assist credit on models so equipped without regard to how it functions. I suspect it's an "automatic" credit and they don't actually validate the functionality of the feature.
thanks for the link Z, I have filed a complaintI can confirm that the automatic high beam feature is not only useless, but actually dangerous at times in my 2021 RTL-E.
If you have a 2020-2021 Ridgeline and find the automatic high beam operation to be unsafe, I encourage you to file a complaint with NHTSA. It only takes a few minutes and if there are enough complaints, an investigation will be opened and a possible remedy issued.
My two cents... I have the '21 Black Edition, 6000 miles so far. I will have to agree that the auto high beam feature is terrible as well as the wireless charging. The infotainment interface is outdated, but I knew that when I bought it. As for leaks, I haven't had any to my knowledge. I'll keep an eye out this winter.
This is the first Honda I have owned since college (owned 5 to date) so I can't rate the perceived decline in quality. What I can say is that it has met my expectations so far and the ride is much better than any other truck I've been in. My other owned brands are Mercedes, BMW, Lexus, Infinity, Range Rover and Hyundai. The Hyundai have been for my kids and my mom. I have purchased 9 Hyundai ( Elantra's, Tascons, and Santa Fes) in the past 10 years. All have performed flawlessly. One Elantra had an engine recall and was replaced with 95K miles. NO CHARGE. All still going strong, all over 100K miles. This is with them going from high school through college and into a young family situation.
I have had the most issues, problems, and expenses with Mercedes, and Infinity would be 2nd worst. The least number of problems with Lexus. I would say that I was lucky with BMW because I had no issues at all, but I know many friends that had never-ending problems with their BMWs. I sold mine at 34K so I was lucky.
I am incredibly happy with the Ridgeline and have no problem parking it next to my convertible Mercedes. Yes, I keep buying Mercedes, I'm a glutton for punishment. I will never buy Infinity or Nissan again.
