Question about 1983 Honda Civic
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.
