Hi, I have a 1985 Honda Accord, the car is in great shape. Recently with the weather getting colder I noticed that my dash board lights don't go on right away and the car had to warm up for the lights to go on.
Come to find out, the rear tail lights don't work either, when I turn the lights on, I have no dashboard lights and no tail lights. When I run the car for some time and it heats up ince and warm, the dashboard lights go on and with that my tail lights.
When I have no tail/dashboard lights, my blinkers and breaks work just fine, I have headlights and interior lights when I open the door. The problem seams to be tied with my dashboard and tail lights and is intermitten.

If water is in the trunk, then it is probably getting in through the rear tail lights. Common problem with early 90's Honda cars. To check, hose down the trunk area and tail lights, then look at the gaskets from inside the trunk. You'll probably will see some water. To fix, you need to take each tail light out and place a seal of silicon caulk between the body of the car and the tail light gasket and replace the tail lights. This should solve your water in the trunk problem.
-very important check for brake light when pressed (outside rear)
-did u recently change any bulb at the rear if yes recheck if it the right brake light bulb 1157

Do you have a users or ownerrs manual for this Honda? if so look in te glossary for rear lamps or tail lamps sub section fuses. probably the passanger side fuse box unless RHD then most likely drivers side
