SOURCE: Parking and tail light short

OK ... being as you've ripped the entire interior out things might be easier to disconnect now .... I suspect the dash light dimmer assembly (I don't remember but this vehicle may even have a dimmer fuse??? check the owners manual ...) which goes to many lights and if damaged shows a dead short (has the radio ever been changed?) I would first disconnect the dimmer assembly (cluster lamps) (that will eliminate that circuit) replace the fuse and try turning the parking lamps on ... if the fuse blows again ... it's not the dimmer cicuit ... then ... You will measure a short when checking continuity between negative battery terminal and the light circuit as the filaments in the lamps will read continuity but it should show some resistance and not a dead short under normal conditions. I would then disconnect the harnesses going to the rear of the car located in the left kick panel and or the right kick panel .... the way you will solve it is to work one section at a time ... and a bunch of fuses ... trial and error then focus on the suspect section ... the thing that gets me is: you say the short goes away (on the meter) when the brakes are applied or left turn signal. So it might be in the rear harness ... I would also inspect the left rear light assembly and the harness to it (possibly a bad ground) good luck and let me know what you find

I installed a new tv radio on my 09 honda accord lxp. Now the parking lights and the ac climate control lights are not working. Can somebody please help me.


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.

2003 impala keeps blowing rear parking lamp fuse


Same issue also when the fuse blows i looks my electric seat controls. I found the problem was underneath the hood underneath both the fuse boxes it was a power wire pinched under a plate that holds the fuse boxes on. This wire probably wore through after 140,000 miles of rubbing and being pinched. tell me if it works for you

Fuse keeps blowing on parking, tail light, small light circuit


You have two choices

A repair shop or a wiring diagram, if your
up to trouble shooting it yourself

You only replace a fuse one time,then you
get your wiring diagram out

Can't work on something you have no knowledge of

I don't have any rear tail lights


If both the taillights are out, it's most likely a fuse. Locate the fusebox and replace the fuse that handles them. If it blows again, you have a short in the wiring.

The two tailights in the trunk of my 2005 honda civic si do not work. the bulbs and fuse are ok. is this a civic problem


Do the lights on the trunk operate when the parking lights are on, but do not light up when you apply the brakes? If so, this is normal. Only the outer red lights are brake & parking combination lights. The ones adjacent to the reverse lights on the trunk lid are parking lights only.

If the red lights in the trunk lid are not working at all, check the red/yellow and black/silver wires where they go from the trunk lid down into the right side of the trunk area. The wiring harness for the parking and reverse lights are contained in a piece of black tubing that is connected to the passenger's side trunk hinge.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

No parking lights, fuse keeps blowing.

Parking lights


Well, probably there are 2 reasons for that:

1. The fuse is too small

2. You got short in the wiring harness
