I have a 1992, and it was the dimmer switch. best found cheap at the junkyard. Just pry it out with a screwdriver and unclip the wire harness. Otherwise look for exposed wire. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

I drive a 99 acura integra gs. whenever i apply my brakes, my instrument lights come on. all the lights on the dashboard comes on. and when i turn my headlights on, my brake lights turns on bright red....

Hi, one of your brake light sockets is shorted across the 2 terminals. Remove each bulb to see if there is something in one of the sockets that is connecting the 2 terminals. If not, the problem may be inside the socket or behind the socket. You may have to replace the brake light sockets to resolve the problem. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Hello deezeesmeyo
Check fuse# 42 a 20amp fuse in the fuse block located under the hood on the right side of the engine compartment. If the fuse is ok, check the stoplight switch located under the left side of the
dash on the brake peddle bracket. Hope this is helpful.

I have a 1994 Acura Integra. The Tail lights do not work neither does the dash board light turn on, however, the fuses are good and the brake lights come on when I press the Brake. How do I fix this?

Replace your switch part# 35255-sh3-a04 and this will correct the problem. I also had the same problem and this did the job!

Running lights on 1991 acura integra dont work

Did you change your dimmer switch? When my rear lights and dash lights stopped working the fuse was blown, but the transistor inside the dimmer switch (just left of your steering wheel) was blown also. (had my dad check it with the multimeter). You'll need a narrow flat head screw driver to pry it out, start at the bottom, that's where the metal clip that holds it in is. Cost me $5 at the junk yard. Hope this solves your problem, annoying isn't it to not be able to drive at night.

Left side lights Dim and windshield wipers operate

Hello ilandskater2,
It sounds like you may have caused a plug for the lights to come undone or you lost the ground to one side of the car. Some newer vehicles use a reverse type ground system with small computer controlled relays in the system. It sounds like you are getting a reverse feed on the power system under the hood. look at all the plugs and check to see if they are completely pluugged in and check the fuse block to see if any are blown causing the feed back. Check all the grounding points under the hood also. Hope this helps. Regards, rcampsr
