Re: 1992 Honda Accord 2 door sedan. Dashboard lights...
You have a bare wire or something along those lines touching metal so when you turn your lights on it causes the circuit to overload in turn blowing your fuse. its hard to say where it is you will just have to trace your wires

for the brake lamp stays on.... try replace all the brake lightbulbs as maybe one of the bulbs is about to blow which resulted in higher resistance.
for door ajar stays on.... check all doors, bonnet switch. either one of them is on close loop.
The fuse to check is 20A fuse #42 (brakes & horn) under the hood. Use a test light or multimeter to measure voltage to body ground at both test tabs at the top of the fuse.OR YOU CAN REPLACE THE SWITCH WHICH IS ABOVE THE BRAKE PEDAL,AUTOZONE,20 BUCKS,OR CHECK THAT TAILLIGHTS ARE GROUNDED AND NO CORROSION.
there is one inside the car. 3 possible places; under the glove box, under the steering wheel or if you open the driver side door the corner of the dashboard usually triangular piece of plastic to remove
Get a piece of tape,cover light and don't replace dash,for a light,what happens when you put a new dash in and it still does it,it's not the dash,your switches at doors,may be bad,check there to fuse box.Could be the wiring.
That is the main power distribution fuse. It supplies power to everything in the car. I would advise you to check all the main [heavy] wires going out of the fuse box. Also check to see if your alternator or starter is shorted out. When does the fuse blow? Does it happen immediately after you install it? Does it happen after you engage a certain electrical device? [suspect the circuitry to that device] Charlie PS Is this a coupe, sedan or a station wagon?
Are you talking about fuse # 15 in the Power Distribution Center under the hood? The 70 Amp fuse?
There are only a few things that can make this fuse blow:
1. The battery is installed backwards
2. There is a short to ground in the alternator or the battery cable that goes to the alternator
3. A defective/shorted Electrical Load Detector Unit (ELD)
I guess you have allready found out, so I don't need to preach to you about how replacing a fuse without FINDING and CORRECTING the REASON it blew, will only cause another innocent little fuse to have to give up its life to keep your vehicle from burning to the ground!
theres 3, one under the hood, 2 inside the vehicle ..the interior fuse boxes are on the sides of the dashboard on both drivers and passenger sides. open the doors and look for the removable panels on the dash between the drivers and passengers dashboard.remove the panel....u will see the 2 interior fuse boxes...these 2 interior fuse boxes house the vehicles multiplex control units..
