I had the exact same problem with my 94 Honda Accord Lx. The fuse for the dash lights and tail lights blew and when I replaced it, it blew again. After a couple more tries, we gave up and took it to a honda repair place and they did a diagnostic for about $50. What they found was the wiring to the trunk was frayed and touching the other wires. They said its a common problem after years of opening and closing the trunk. I had noticed that the trunk light on the dash would sometimes flicker so it makes sense to me. They removed the wiring harness for the trunk, and replaced the fuse and now the lights work fine. And to replace the trunk wiring harness would have cost $60 but I can live without lights in the trunk for now. I am just happy to be able to drive at night again. Hope this helped.

Check your fuses and double check your wiring. You've likely mis-wired something to the radio that also supplies power for the lights in the dash. So if you find a blown fuse, you might blow it again if it's a wiring issue. Of course, you may have bumped a wire to ground during the install which blew the fuse, so replacing it may be all that's needed.
I had an issue where a "small light fuse" in my 97 accord blew and my parking lights and dash lights didn't work. Small fuse under the hood was all that needed to be replaced.
My dash light doesn't work either, I lose lights in dash at night when I have the headlights on. As for your car, thats kinda weird your fronts work but not the back. Have you already checked the fuse boxes? they are on the driver and passenger sides almost under the dash in front of the doors. If all your fuse are good and in the right spots, then I would check the bulbs out back to make sure they are not rusted inside or cut or something like that.
Click on the link, check fuse f13--20 amp. Not only check the fuse, check the fuse circuit for voltage, use a test lite, hot all the time.
You have to test when problem is ongoing. The fuse is for brake lamps.
At the moment, I don't know if trouble shooting one system will fix the rest? With multiple issues, I pick one system and trouble shoot.
1997 Honda accord nothing on instrument cluster works,only the battery light. Power windows will not work. shift lock solenoid doesn't work.Digital clock does not work. Lights on the console shifter don't light up. Help!
I'm having the same problem on my 1995 Honda Accord. I hit a bump hard last night, and my dash lights, tail-lights, license-plate lights, and the bell which 'bing's when the door is open and the headlights are on all stopped working. The fuse for "Small lights" under the hood was blown. Replaced it, turned on headlights, and it blew again instantly.
I'm guessing that I have a wire crossed (possibly inside the bulb itself) in the dash somewhere; I checked the taillights and license-plate liights already.
Your question is a bit vague, but the first thing I would check is fuses. If they all are good, then there may be a wiring problem. It could stem from a broken wire, bad ground wire, or from a short circuit. To repair the system will require a wiring diagram, and 12 volt test light or multimeter. Reading the diagram, checking for power where the diagram says it should be and checking for ground where it should be. Note, when using a test light, to check for ground simply place the aligator clip on the positive battery cable instead of cliping it to the negative side or frame grounding.
