Stop lights not working

The stop lights on my 97 Accord are not working. I checked the fuse and it is ok. I checked both bulbs and they appear to be ok. Running lights and turn signals work fine.

    Went and did the check with volt meter and determined that the switch was bad. Just installed new switch. Problem solved. Thanks!

Well, if the fuse and bulbs are still good, and you're getting all of the rest of your lights to come on, chances are your brake light switch is bad. They're most always located at the very top of the brake pedal. Sometimes it's necessary to remove the lower portion of your dash cover to access it, but once you gain access, you can check it by putting a voltage meter on the wires going to it and pressing down on the brake pedal while reading the meter. That way, if it's not bad, you don't actually have to remove it. If you don't get voltage when applying pressure to the brake pedal however, you can count on having to replace it, which should be rather inexpensive at your local parts store. Hope this sheds some (brake) light on your problem. Have a great evening!

Where do I find the check engine light fuse for an accord 97 lx

They are not fused by themselves. They get power from the ECM. If the bulb is not working check the bulb.

My turn flasher stopped working afta having my 96 accord just over 9 years, I've bought a new one , but doesn't fit....I don't know what I have to get for it to fit properly!!! =c plz help! I'm a female...

What exactly did you buy a new one of...the light bulb? The light bulb is presumably the first thing to check when the flasher stops working. So drive yourself to a Hinda service place, take the flasher light bulb out, walk into the parts dept with the bulb and tell them you need a new one (and show them)...that way you know you get the correct on. When you get the new one, make sure it matches the one you removed. Go back to car, and replace the old one with the new on. If you take the bulb out and check it and it appears that it isn't blown, then check to see if your car has a fuse that is specifically for the blinker on the side that isn't working. (your manual should have a diagram of your fuse box...what fuse is where and what the fuse operates, as should the inside of your fuse box cover).

Brake lights will not work replaced bulbs fuses under hood appear ok

Try replacing the brake light switch which is located just above your brake pedal under the dash.

It looks like this and is fairly easy to replace...

97 honda civic instrument panel lights do not work.

your bulbs are burnt out in the dash. You will need to replace them. when your fuse went out it was either that or your bulbs and your fuse went out. Now that you have a new fuse your bulb was the weaker link so that went out. hope this helps
