The issue you are having is the dimmer switch itself. In the past, I have a 93 with the same issue had it for years. pull it out, disassemble it carefully, there is carbon buildup on the dimmer wheel. You'll notice if you wiggle the wheel the lights will come on. years ago when i first had the issue i came across a site that had full disassembly and reassembly instructions. replace the switch and your issue is done. pull it out clean it up cost nothing and for a while it will stay good.

The 93 assembly has the dimmer, mirror, and sunroof controls all in one bank its easiest to pry out the whole bank disconnect all the wire clips. its tricky to remove the 3 individual components because their pressure clips are in tight against each other but it can be done with a flathead screwdriver.

Hope this helped (remember rated this help) Good lukc.

Replace dimmer switch in 1997 honda civic hatchback

In 96-98 Civics the dimmer simply pushes in under the left dash vent and is held in place on both sides by metal flexing tabs (no screws). If it were possible to grab it you could pull it straight out with a bit of rocking / side to side motion to help to release it. Unfortunately the proper way to remove it requires removing the lower panel as follows:

You need to remove the plastic cover panel that is underneath the steering column (the one with the switches, coin pocket, and fuse box cover built in). To do this you remove three screws (one above the switches on the upper left, one in the lower left corner, and one on the lower right. You will then need to pull the bottom edge out slightly from the dash and tug the entire panel down towards the floor of the car as gently as possible. You will be pulling out three metal snap-in retainers at the top of the panel, two on the left and one on the right. It is often hard to remove plastic panels without damaging them so be careful. Now unplug the switches (mirror, sunroof, fog light) and set the panel aside. At this point you can easily reach behind the dimmer switch, push it out, pull it through the front of the dash, and unplug it.

Hope this helps

92 honda civic vx keeps blowing taillight fuses.

I found out some of the wiring had grounded out and burnt. I took up the carpet in the door jam and found where the wires had touched and shorted out. i traced each individual wire that had burnt and replaced it with new wire. So far so good.

Need to see diagrams of the figs. 3-6 from a Chilton's manual...

My son came down and figured it out for me. Not sure what all he did but he had to make a few modifications by splicing the wires together after cutting the wires just under the dimmer switch...then a few adjustments were needed to get it to all work right.
