Question about 2003 Honda Civic
My Honda Civic 2003 keeps on burning the fuse that controls the small lights and parking lights. Also some times the battery and brake indicator lights go off in the dashboard.
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
