I have a 1998 Honda Accord with a 2.3 engine. When I turn the headlights on then all of the lights on the dash go out. What could be wrong?


You should look for a shorted bulb. Sometimes these will be in a sidemarker light so with the headlights on, check each light around the car. Also try the turn signals and if one is flashing "faster" than the others, make sure you replace the bulbs in that one. After you fix the electrical "short" that can be caused by a bad bulb, hopefully the dash lights will start working properly again. If not, check all your fuses.

Headlights wont work properly


Sounds like you have a problem in your headlight switch. As far as them staying on sometimes when you shut the car off are you referring to daytime running lamps or the regular headlights? If it's daytime running lamps that like to stay on and your headlights do not like to turn on then there could be a combination of headlight switch and daytime running lamp relay.

It is possible the relay gets the signal from the headlight switch as well, since they generally turn off when you turn your headlights on.

Dash lights-turn signal and rear lights


Access your fuse box and check the fuse labled- rear tail lgts,turn sgns, that fuse is blown, replace the fuse with the same value fuse, while your under there, on the fuse box or next to it you'll find 2 round plug in components, about the size of a Marshmellow, one of these is your flasher unit and the other is for your turn signals, replace both of these, even though one may work, it's just good sense to replace both, that shoud fix your rear lighting problem. good luck.....

Dash lights go off intermittently


I'm no expert, I recently purchased a 2003 vibe. I noticed the automatic headlight's sensors can be super-sensitive, about an hour hours before dusk they'll kick my headlights on (when the sun is still shining!), or sometimes when I go into an underpass, and then sometimes they'll realize it's light enough and turn themselves off. This would cause your dash lights to go to the 'headlights on' mode and turn the headlamp signal on, the intensity is controlled by the dimmer/dome light control on the left side of the dash. Check to see if the dimmer is down too far, as this could cause the lights to dim when the automatic headlights turn on. It's also possible that the dimmer is not working, thus no power is getting to the dash lights through the dimmer. Try testing it by starting the car in daylight, then manually turn on the headlights, then adjust the dimmer. Like I say, I'm no expert, just guessing because I've noticed it happen similarly on my Vibe, but my dimmer was at half-way, as I like it for night driving. Someday, I'd like to disable the automatic sensors and DRL.

Tail lights and dash lights not working, due to headlight install


I have the same problem in an 88 Accord. I found that if I slowly turn the light switch, there is a sweet spot in between the the parking light and headlight on position (around halfway in between or so.) where all will work. The problem is , when I might a right turn signal, it turns the dash and brake lights out again and I have to refind that sweet spot. Not very safe, so we don't drive that car at night.
I was told by a mechanic that the issue is a relay or switching mechanism located in the steering column.

Brake lights dont work, Turn Signals all goofy


First thing i would do is chg. the break light switch, and make sure to chk. all grounds around tailights, sometimes if there is a ground problem it will travel back thru the hot wire to get a ground, witch in turn makes everything go wackey.

Tail lights and dash lights not working


there are a few fuses under the hood be sure to check fuses again at dash they could look good but not be and if one was blown it could have blown as soon as you turned them on again that would indicate a short. it could be the switch also if it is the pull type try pulling it slowly to see if they come on and turning it like to dim the dash lights. if that makes them come on you need a new switch sometimes it will work sometimes not
