Question about 1984 Honda Accord

1 Answer

1984 Accord parking/dash lights will not stay on when headlights are on. If tweak switch just right, can turn parking/dash lights on by themselves. Can you just replace the rod switch, and not the entire electrical box? I know that the steering column electrical box is around $400. I was hoping to just replace the switch/rod.

Not from the dealer, the part is called a combo switch, meaning it is a headlight switch and a wiper switch - one unit. I don't think is possible to take the switch apart without destroying it.

It could be a bad connection or a bad headlight switch, but there is also a safety switch on the car that turns the dash lights out when you lose your tail lights, so before you go any further check if your tail lights are working, your car may just be telling you about another problem.

My 1984 camaro turn signal lights dont blink but are lit. Also, when i turn my lights on, my tachometer, oil pressure and temperature gauge stop working.


The turn signals use a small relay for the flash, it's located in the interior fuse panel under the dash (small metal/plastic can)...it's the only thing in the fuse panel that's not a fuse.

They're a few dollars at Autozone and easy to replace.

The short/overload killing the dash gauges will be a bit harder to troubleshoot...Do the gauges die with the parking lights, or only after the switch is all the way out to headlights?

Tail lights and dash lights not working, due to headlight install


I have the same problem in an 88 Accord. I found that if I slowly turn the light switch, there is a sweet spot in between the the parking light and headlight on position (around halfway in between or so.) where all will work. The problem is , when I might a right turn signal, it turns the dash and brake lights out again and I have to refind that sweet spot. Not very safe, so we don't drive that car at night.
I was told by a mechanic that the issue is a relay or switching mechanism located in the steering column.
