Question about 1991 Honda Accord
No one? any ASE mech can, for sure, and blindfolded.
the reason you can;t is because you dont have a $20 voltmeter.
btw 2 , some cars have hacking to this circuit, trailers attached?
and yes, wires to fail, not just rare at all.
lets pay a game, you go to walfart buy DMM
and go home, and set it to 20vdc range.
and measure voltage to the brake switch, its 12v, may need key on to do that.
then step on brake, the output of the switch goes to;;;
examples. input to switch 12v brake on, all the time. braking or not.
step on brake reads..
1: 0v, switch bad, or gross short close by.
2: 1 to 8v> reads too low, short in harness or 1 lamp shorted.
3: 12v, (battery is at 12.5 ) normal wire drop is 0.5v on all cars.
if 12v here, then wires are cut, to the lamps or all lamps are burned open. (not in yourcase, but to be accurate)
now at this moment you know what is bad.
if the input to the switch is not 12v that means you blew the fuse again,
the volt meter will not lie to you, and will show you the drop voltages.
a normal car will have 12v to each lamp. if not there is DROP.
called voltage drop.
do the tests, post the voltages and we can find it fast.
also skipping looking at both rear under finders for hacks is bad.
look, and behind the Tail lamp assemblies for hacks, or collision damage.

Check the prones inside the connector that you plug into the brake light module. You may have to squeeze, wiggle, tilt each one to see which one is not connecting all that good. I know it may sound confusing. I tried to explain the best of I could.

SOURCE: 1996 Honda Accord Problem
I cannot get my air conditioner clutch on my 1996 Honda Accord EX to engage. I've checked the fuse and relay. The fuse is good but the power is not going to the relay. If I can find the power that comes to the relay, I can fix it. I need to know what activitate the relay and the power that the relay push to the clutch. I need to know where they come from.
I've been looking for a circuitry that shows it and a drawing that shows the air conditioning fan. Please help.

After you have checked the fuseand the bulb connection, you may also want to check the brake switch located at top of the brake padel under the dashboard. Once you push the brake padel, the switch will trigger and the brake light will be on. Use simple 12 volt test pen or voltmeter to test the current supply. Enjoy it.

It should be your brake light switch. There is a little plate welded to the arm of the pedal that has a hole with a rubber stopper. The rubber stopper is most likely missing, or damaged. You should be able to take a flashlight and see the plate and the switch. If the hole is plugged up, you will need the brake light switch, if not, replace the plug.
