Why fuse #7 burn out instrument cluster


http://www.my-chevy-venture.com/fuses.html Indicates it serves the indicator lights for your shift lever Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive, Low. So you have a short to ground (body metal) somewhere after the fuse box on to the indicator light and possibly the Ignition switch. Has someone worked on the car recently? Take it back or ask them to fix it. If someone you know.
A very careful inspection of all the wires from the fuse box on to the indicator light switches and possibly the Ignition switch will hopefully reveal the short. Sometimes the body metal will cut into the cables and cause a short, sometimes from a collision. I like the new very bright led flashlight for this kind of inspection in the dark. Good luck

these have a safety system so the shifter won`t go into any gear unless the brake is pushed(indicating someone sitting in the drivers seat),if the brake lights aren`t working this indicates that the fuse that operates the shift lock solenoid and brake lights is not working and needs replacing.check the fuses and replace the fuse and things will probably return to normal.

I would start with which fuses you blew in the fuse box. That will give you an indication on which areas to look hard at. It sounds like you had an electrical fire and that now you have multiple fuse blown with other damage. DON'T REPLACE THE FUSES until you have found the problem that caused them to blow.

Your shift lock is wired to the brake light fuse when you start your car and put you foot on the brake you should hear a acturator clicking. It is connected to the shifter. check your fuse which is located driver side fender under the hood if bad replace fuse if acturator is bad Call Honda parts you can replace this your self might want a manuel for that. Good Luck

Will not shift out of park


Look in your owner's manual under fuses. There is a fuse for brake shift lock solenoid (fuse #1). You can still drive your car by turning the key on just enough to shift to neutral, and then starting it in neutral. You can shift to drive and reverse, but if you shift to Park then you have to turn the engine off and proceed as previously
