I have a 1998 honda accord. My problem is that the rear reading lights don't work. I tested the bulbs; they're fine. The fuse is obviously fine since the other interior lights work fine. Since both of the rear reading lights are not working, I don't think the problem is with the switch. Please help.
I just had the same thing happen to my 1998 Honda Accord. Mine ended up being a 39.00 break sensor that I got a Advanced Auto parts. I would try that and if it doesn't work take it back. This is something that you can do in the parking lot.

First check both front and rear lft side bulbs. Then, I would check the signal relay. I think it is under the dash one the left side. Here is want your are looking for. A new one cost about $12-$15 at most parts stores. Last I would suspect the signal switch assembly on the column. (Perchance you have a trailer hitch plug? If so look there too)
ok well you start with the most common, obvious, and easiest to repair.
3. bad relay
4. bad switch
5. open circuit
This is the best order to diagnose your problem with. not sure how electricly savy you are but my first test would be to check for voltage at the bulb. Get yourself a voltmeter, a test light might work but a volt meter can give you the exact reading. unplug the harness from the bulb or vise versa, have someone hold the brake down, stick your diodes into the terminals of the harness and get your reading. if no voltage pull some fuses... still nothin, my moneys on the wires...
