1985 honda accord, headlights and brake lights work, but tail lights will not come on. also, horn and cruise control won't work. we checked the fuses, and all fuses are good. Any ideas of how to fix it?
Tail lights will not come on; you must have a bad wire or a bad light-bulb socket. With a car that old, the LIGHT BULB SOCKETS, go bad.
The horn won't work; Take the steering wheel cover off and see what color the wire(s) are and follow them to see where they lead to, then, check with a test-light to see where the current stops, you may need a new horn or clean the connections under the steering wheel cover.
Cruise control won't work; again, you will need a test-light to figure out this problem, along-with, checking to see if there is a vacuum-hose that comes from the intake-manifold of the motor that goes to the diafram-actuator that has a cable or rod that pulls the throttle open. Check to see that it is getting an electrical-current or that it's not leaking so that the diafram can pull the rod or cable to open or operate the throttle. In-short, it might work by vacuum, vacuum and electricity or just by eletricity. Last-of-all, if everything is alright under the hood then it may be the controls inside of the car or even a disconnected wire.
