1989 honda accord headlight fuse blows as soon as replaced

I have replaced the fuse for the right headlight a few times in the past 6 months and now it blows out as soon as I replace it, the light doesnt even come on for a second, as soon as I turn the lights on the fuse blows. It takes a 15a and ive tried a 10a as well as a 20a and same thing, blows out right away, HELP!

You more than likely have a shorted wire in the headlight harness... you will have to check the wiring from the headlight bulbs to see if it has been pinched up against a sharp metal edge causing a grounded wire, or maybe the harness was crushed by an improper headlight installation.

You have a short somewhere in the headlight wiring. I would start by unplugging the headlights and see if it still blows. If so then you might need to trace the wiring back (with the negative battery unplugged) and find where the wires are touching. If it doesn't blow with the headlights unplugged then you should just need to replace the headlights.

Both headlights went out yesterday, I am thinking it was a fuse, to blow both lights at the same time ?


Appereantly headlight on the Kia do not last long, I have lost count of headlamp replacements. Basically, I would say that they last about 5-6 months or less, and we don't do a lot of driving. We have learned to turn off our headlights during the day to minimize run time and on/off surges. We have already had to deal with one fix-it ticket and we are constantly worried about getting pulled over because one of the headlights could blow at any moment. I buy headlights in two packs now to save money. Before you change the headlights check the fuses, in both fuse boxes for any blown fuses, One is under the hood to your right side beneath a black case I beleive, and the other is in the car, near the drivers left leg on the wall.

In our 2002 Honda Accord LX both low beam lights went out together but the high beams work fine. They went out together, what could be the cause?


Before you do anything else, you should check fuse number 2 (7.5 amp) in your engine compartment fuse box. It is your dimmer relay fuse. Fuse number 1 (20 amp) is your left headlight and fuse number 3 (20 amp) is your right headlight.
If the number 2 fuse is blown, and you replace it, if it blows again, I would have the system checked.
Hope this helps you.

You have a switch on your console that locks the headlights up without giving them power. Use that switch to leave the up and there a a few screws that hold the plastic cover around the lights, just remove the cover and there a a couple more screws behold that cover that hold the headlight in place.. Should take about ten min to do both sides.. Any questions feel free to ask
