Question about 1991 Honda Accord

1 Answer

What part do I need to buy in order to make my tail light and dashboard light work. I called the parts place, but they are acting confused. This is a 91 Honda Accord LX (2 door)

I already checked both fuse boxes... in and out, that is not the issue. I thought it was a combo headlight switch that I needed, but the parts store told me I didn't....I'm really confused and frustrated right now

First of all, check the fuses under the dash and under the hood. It could just be a bad or blown fuse. @nd if no fuses are blown, check for burned out bulbs or broken wires by your taillights. 3rd, go to autozone or advance auto and pick up a haynes manual for your car. It's around $21.00 and well worth the money. You get lots of info and common sense advice w/pictures to fis anything on your vehicle.

SOURCE: Brake Lights out on 1991 Honda Accord

After you have checked the fuseand the bulb connection, you may also want to check the brake switch located at top of the brake padel under the dashboard. Once you push the brake padel, the switch will trigger and the brake light will be on. Use simple 12 volt test pen or voltmeter to test the current supply. Enjoy it.

SOURCE: 2001 Honda Accord All brake lights out except 3rd brake light


To me it sounds like a grounding's an 8 year old car so quite
possibly the chassis ground that the tail lights connect to is no longer
good. Probably a black wire going to a bolt screwed directly into the body of the car. Have to unscrew it sandpaper/wire brush clean the connection
coat with vaseline (prevents re-rusting) and retighten. Good luck!

So, my tail light on nissan maxima 2004 were out, the fuse was blown so I replaced it. Tail light work but dashboard lights are out when lights are on, in all positions,switch them off and dashboard lights...

dashboard lights are brighter when lights are off so you can see stuff in the daylight-check and make sure you have the correct bulb and its plugged in correctly-something is confusing the cpu-a blown fuse usually means something is shorted out-check for cut or bare wires around your tailamps-cheers Denny

If you already check the dimmer definetly you will have to remove the dashboard area where the indicator is and replace those light bulbs they are tiny so careful and first check your auto parts store for correct number.luck!

Brake lights quit working

Tail lights acting insane?

We had the same issue with our 2000 Pontiac Montana. Brake lights, turn signal lights, running lights, back-up lights and emergency flasher didn’t work at all or operated at random. The cause: poorly designed aluminum contacts on the tail light circuit board and wiring harness connector arced over and disintegrated with normal use.

Pull the tail lamp assembly, remove the electrical connector and look for burned contacts on the connector plug and the connector socket (they call this long plastic piece with the socket the circuit board: it includes the four bulb sockets. Replace the circuit board and the wiring connector.

You can DIY this job with basic auto mechanical/electrical skills and tools. The two circuit boards and the two connectors set me back $230 (2009 cost) for new parts. The electrical contacts on the factory replacement parts are improved.

I needed a T-30 torx driver to remove the tail light assembly (you need this to change out bulbs, too), wire cutters, wire strippers, electrical tape and an electrical lug crimper to do the job.

Fuses have me confused

if you have not low beams or tail lghts most likelly your head light switch is bad, and the light are not feed by a regular fuse
they have fusible link, that means a regular wire with built in fuse, if any thing happends the wire just burn a liitle part of it and prevent fire on harnes, this fusible link will be located by the starter solenoid atached to the batterie hot wire on starter coming from batterie or by the batterie, just pull gently on every wire i mention and if one come apart fix it,
