Question about 2001 Honda Accord
I am not a car expert but I can manage a few small tasks. I replaced the 10 amp fuse on the passenger side and 2 burned out in less than 2 minutes. Obviously something is grounding but I have absolutely no idea what??? Dash lights and rear running lights out. Nothing after market is installed and it has original honda radio. Please help
Its just electrics, and ohms laws..
if the right fuse is there, it burns out for one reason, a short.
(excessive current) and prevents fire, the battery can supply 500 amps
easy and you'd not want to short that, ever.
first thing, is to post the name of the fuse, they all have names.
rule 2, most fuses can have 20 loads, not just the named, load on fuse.
so, only schematic of the system shows ALL loads.
no named fuse, no joy, or post a photo to it with finger pointing, >>> here.
the car came with an opertators guide, in the glove box and all guides
name the fuses, if lost get one.
here it is for free.
and once the name of fuse is know , the full scematic is
DIY, discounted here..... (i make nothing saying that...)
to find a short we use an ammeter, and a circuit breaker
to replace fuse that burns out.
then we drop loads off this buss until the short, goes byebye.
if it dont go way, then the harness is shorted, (ask how to find if so)

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.

sounds like a short
look at wires under dash
then look at te wires coming through the fire wall
check lighter too it might have a coin stuck in it as it will cause a short too
