Question about 1998 Honda Accord

2 Answers

Rear reading light

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 tried that but still the lights don't work. I think the problem is with the wiring. Ijust don't know where to look. Do you know where I can have a wiring diagram for my car (1998 Honda Accord)?

    My problem is with the reading lights, the ones above the rear seat inside the car. I think you were talking about the rear lights at the back of the car.

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.
Good luck!

Try getting some dielectric grease from the store and putting that on the bulb connections. I have done this many times before to fix bad light connections on vehicles. Hope this helps, good luck!

Honda Accord 2006 turning signal not functioning


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)

Did you check the fuses with a test light? A fuse can look OK, but unless you test continuity or use a test light, you could be mislead.

99 ACCORD BRAKE LIGHTS


ok well you start with the most common, obvious, and easiest to repair.
1. fuse
2. bulbs
3. bad relay
4. bad switch
5. open circuit
6. short
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...
