2006 Pilot headlight problem

On my 2006 Pilot EX there's the main headlight on the bottom and the other headlight right on top of it (I'm not referring to the brights or turn signal lights. Both of the top lights (on left and right side) are not working. The service guy tried to replace them but they still didn't work and he said it might be an electrical problem. Why are there bottom and top headlights anyway and can I drive safely at night without the top ones on? (The bottom ones and the Brights as well as the fog lights work fine) Anyone have a 2006 pilot that can help out? Thanks

Turn on your parking lights and how many lights are on in your headlight assy.?
Should be 2 @ 5 watts each in each headlight assy. An amber lens and the clear round shaped lens.
I think this clear 5 watt light is the one you are referring to, right above the headlight.
I'm a little confused why those wouldn't be on if the lights behind the amber lens are on.
They are on the same circuit.

Isn't the top inner light the turn signal?

Yes. And Marco said his turn signals work.
Looking at the left headlight assy., top row, left to right:
Amber turn signal - 21W, clear parking - 5W, clear front side marker - 5W w/amber lens.

I know exactly what you're talking about OP. One of ours doesn't work, but if I bang on the headlight assembly it will come on. I figure it's a loose electrical connection but haven't messed with it yet. 06 Pilot EX-L.

Ditto on this one as well, my driver side light was being funny, same light as the OP, put some dielectric grease on the connector, has been fine since.
