Question about 1991 Honda Accord
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.

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.

check voltage with and without engine running
sounds like low voltage
check main fuse in the box under the hood.
check all grounds

To me it sounds like a grounding issue...it'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!
