    i just wanted to see if the lights would actually turn on but the correct fuse is a 10 i use a 20 to see if the brake light would turn on and it did. the problem is that when i place the 10 it blows out as soon as i press the brake. what i do see is that my brake light still works but some were in the parking light set up there's a problem with something either malfunctioning or a wire is touching.

Can't shift out of park

check to make sure the brake lights are working as some of these won`t release the park lock if the brake lights don`t work.then check the fuses with a test light and replace as needed

My 2003 civic headlights won't turn on. The parking, high beams, etc. all work fine. What's the fix?

its possible the headlight relay is bad it should be labeled on the fuse / relay box you can swap it out with a different relay( stop light relay ) in the box just to see if that works. Just make sure you don't try and use the fuel pump relay or your vehicle wont start.

Just had a similar problem. Brake (stop) lights and horn didn't work. Couldn't find mention of stop lights in fuse chart. Found horn fuse to be slot 21 in the engine fuse block (not the fuse block in car interior). Replaced 15A fuse and all now ok.

No tail lights or dash lights
Click on the link.
Did you check fuse circuit for voltage? Use a test light with headlamp switch on to check for voltage. See the park lamp relay, I'm not saying the relay is faulty, but, you might be able to use jumper wire on load side of relay, if lamps work, the problem is on control side of relay, for some reason.
The load side of relay is that line with arrowhead. There could be other issues.

All brake lights suddenly stopped working changed bulbs park light fuse and cant find any blown fuses what else can it be

brake switch on the pedal bad.bad relay. do you have a second fuse box if so check it. look at the wiring see if it is frayed or chafed check the connections.check all the fuses not just the ones labeled brakes.switch the relay with one that you know is good like turn signal and see if the turn signal works then check brakes.use a 12 volt test light check the brake switch and probe the wires. hope this helped if not write back and i'll give you more ideas.
