Question about 1997 Honda Civic
The brake light fuse blows immediately. I have replaced the fuse repeatedly and as soon as I touch the brake pedal the fuse blows. This is a 15 amp fuse that also supports the horn. I have checked the horn when I have a new fuse installed and the horn does not blow the fuse. Only the brake lights blow the fuse. What should I do?
Its a fualt or short in the tail light loom , ive seen this issue many times, some of the looms they use are not old age worthy so to speak they deteriorate over time and youll find one of them if not both are actually arcing out somewhere i would recommend replacing just the looms that have the bulb socket and on the other end they plug into the main wire harness need to unclip them etc and pull out of the rubber grommet and replace by installing new one back the same way u removed the old , be sure to clean the terminals and plugs on new one if second hand first

You have a short in the lighting system. Try removing both brake bulbs and with a new fuse installed.. does it still blow the fuse? If not, then install one bulb at a time and repeat the test.. You probably have a short in or around the bulb socket.. Hope this helps
