1995 Honda accord coupe
Check all your fuses, one at a time with a continuity tester. Replace each fuse before you remove another fuse so you will not put the fuse in the wrong place. Also, if you find a bad fuse which you can purchase at an automotive parts place, make sure you replace the bad fuse with the correct amperage fuse. Do not go up on the replacement fuse amperage. The amperage number is on the fuse handle. You can buy a very inexpensive continuity tester at radio shack and they will teach you how to use it. Good luck.

SOURCE: dash lights
possibility of a dimmer switch malfunction, did you check all the fuses under the dash and also under the hood. check thuroughly because you might have missed one.
And where your dimmer switch is, us a stanely knife on the corner and it should pop out.. peice of cake, the dimmer has 2 wires in it so you can take a volts tester to see if it gets current when your head lights are on. Alos if it is getting current only on 1 side you can bypass it for another test by just running a wire from both points.
Does your other dash peices light up like your ac controlls and your clock?
if so it might be part of the dash cluster has just burnt out, bulb wise and 3-4 screws around the cluster and it pulls out also. All hondas are like legos and they come apart Very simpley.
If it isnt either of those, then you might have a bad MFS witch is shot for multi function switch and it is the lever that controlls your lights. Its expensive to replace though and is a hastle to remove from the steering coloum to test.
Get yourself a volts, oms tester and check the dimmer switch 1st.
if thats alright then test with the wire.
if thats alright then check the back lights behind your cluster for burtn out bulbs,
and if all that looks good your down to the fuses might just look good, and the MFS
hope that narrows it down for you

I had the exact same problem with my 94 Honda Accord Lx. The fuse for the dash lights and tail lights blew and when I replaced it, it blew again. After a couple more tries, we gave up and took it to a honda repair place and they did a diagnostic for about $50. What they found was the wiring to the trunk was frayed and touching the other wires. They said its a common problem after years of opening and closing the trunk. I had noticed that the trunk light on the dash would sometimes flicker so it makes sense to me. They removed the wiring harness for the trunk, and replaced the fuse and now the lights work fine. And to replace the trunk wiring harness would have cost $60 but I can live without lights in the trunk for now. I am just happy to be able to drive at night again. Hope this helped.

I couldve sworn there was a switch. if not, probably the dimmer switch is bad. Take it out and verify operation with a multimeter. Also verify the switch has 12V
