Question about 2003 Honda Civic
Two rear brake lights stopped working on same day so I'm doubting the bulbs are bad. High mount 'third eye' brake light works, though.
When I look at the owners manual, it lists the fuses. Not one is marked 'brake lights' or taillights' or 'rear lights'...I looked at BOTH fuseboxes, the one inside the car and the one under the hood. No luck.
There's a few I don't understand, but they don't seem to relate.
One marked 'Horn/Stop' made some sense, but it was fine and the horn worked.
Does anyone on this planet know where the actual brake light fuses are? They gotta have one, no?
Look for a symbol of a light with a brake pedal next to it in the handbook or the fusebox cover, or maybe a circle with a pedal in it. it doesnt sound like the fuse though as the the centre light is still working from what i can gather and all three lights will be wired on the same cicuit so will have the same fuse. to avoid any wasted time and money i'd recommend checking the bulbs first, then i'd be checking for power at the bulb holder with a voltmeter or test lamp. hope this helps
