Question about 1997 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Brake lights/horn fuse keeps blowing

First I need to unplug the horn to see if that's the problem. If it is, problem identified. Then I'll check the brake light bulbs to see if they're causing a short. Only problem is, I can't find the horn connector on a 1997 Civic. Does anyone know where it is?

I have a 1990 chevy cheyenne c2500. my brake lights,parking lights and blinkers arent working and when i try to replace the fuse,it blows immediatly. what could the problem be?


What is the amp rating on the fuse that keeps blowing? I looked at wiring for stop lamps, 15 amp fuse. Unplug connector for stop lamp switch, see if the fuse still blows? Also see if anything at connector looks burned or melted.

You could have problem with fuse box, itself. Look at back side of fuse box, see if anything looks burned or melted.

Brack lights wont light up on my 1988 ford ranger we keep blowing fuse and put in new brake switch


If you keep blowing the brake fuse than you have a short in the system. Unplug the brake switch. Install a new fuse. If it did not blow than the problem is after the brake switch. Next unplug the turn signal switch, then plug the stop light switch back in and press the brake pedal. Did the fuse blow. If not than the wiring is good in between the two switches. With the turn signal switch disconnected use a jumper wire in between the light green wire (power from the brake switch) and the orange with light blue wire (power to the right brake lamp). If the fuse blows than there is a short in the right side brake circuit between the plug in and the rear socket assembly. If the fuse does not blow than jump from the light green wire to the Light green with orange wire (power to the left brake lamp). If the fuse blows than the problem is in the left hand brake wiring circuit.

2008 odyssey brake fuse location


Hi there:
The simplest way to check the brake light fuse on a Honda is to operate the horn. The horn is always on the same fuse as the brakelights.



The fuse position #7, "Stop" is the one. Ive been doing this so long I dont even look at the fuse unless the horn won't blow. It's the fastest surest test. So if the horn works, I'm 99 % sure its the bulbs. The brake light switch has to be good if the shifter works with the brake pedal. Unless the car has been taken apart or damaged in the rear recently I cant see another cause for the light to be out.


The brake lights even use different grounds, so thats unlikely too.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.


Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

My 02' mdx won't come out of park, keep blowing a 20 amp fuse. This fuse controls the Cruise, break lights, memory seat, horn and linkage. I have to manually delink. I have unhooked the comand...


Here is an idea, when do you blow the fuse key on, key on engine running, key on engine running hitting the break pedal? Try and get the key on without blowing fuse if possible, then one at a time try those circuit loads ie: horn, brake pedal and so on, if you isolate which load is pulling to many amps(blowing fuse) unplug that load itself, then restart testing, see if fuse stays ok. You can also substitue the fuse with a circuit breaker and unplug each load until click(of breaker) stops.

My daughters 1998 honda accord ex keeps blowing fuses she is having to replace the brake light fuse after we replaced the brake light switch when she changed the fuse last the horn blew and she was shocked...


The horn and rear brake lights are on the same fuse. Eventually the horns rust out like on my 1998 CRV. Once I replaced the horns, I could put in a new fuse without it blowing every time I sounded the horn. Problems still remain, namely: the cruise control does not engage and the remote start only starts the engine that runs for two seconds then dies. Still looking for an answer. It's a "Code Alarm" with Codestart dated 11/24/99.

Horn wont work.i check the fuse in the door and


Maybe horn became unplugged. Put 12 v power to horn make sure horn works. Put test light on terminal on horn have someone press the horn button, if light comes on and horn does not blow you may need new horn. if light does not come on you may have bad contact at horn button, blown fuse, broken wire, bad horn relay or possibly just a bad ground.

Brake Light Fuse


You have a short in the lighting system. Try removing both brake bulbs and with a new fuse installed.. does it still blow the fuse? If not, then install one bulb at a time and repeat the test.. You probably have a short in or around the bulb socket.. Hope this helps
