Question about 2003 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Can't find the fuse for brakelights on 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?

Thanks!

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

2011 Honda CRV. Right brake light is on with headlights; hit brake, left brakelight brightens;right remains dim. Headlamps off, hit brake, only left lamp lights. Bulb works. Is it a fuse problem?


Your right brake light is fried. The fact that you see rear lights on both sides has nothing to do with the fact that the right brake light is out. Your brake lights and rear running lights are not the same bulbs. Go to Advance Auto Parts. They may even replace it for you. Not a big deal.

High beams dont go on at all? Does the DRL light dissapear when u turn on the headlights? Now, because your high beams dont work, it more likely means that you need to replace your bulbs. Because if it would be a problem in the car itself, only the DRL system would fail. Im 80% sure that changing your bulbs will solve the problem.

My rear lights don't come on when i turn my headlights instead my 3rd brake light comes on


Hi there,

Your rear brake bulb wiring is connected to the high stop light, but when your problem occurs, it usually means there is a short in one of the brake bulbs (or associated connectors).

Firstly, inspect the brakelight fuse (just in case the rear lights are on a separate circuit).

Secondly, check for blown brakelight bulbs (and replace if necessary).

Thirdly, remove the bulbs and ensure they are the correct type (i.e. the bulb contacts must match the bulb holder - usually double contacts). If you have the incorrect contacts type, this will cause a short also.

Hope this helps...

Brake lights do not work (3rd brakelight does) changed bulbs checked fuse


Problem could be the Brake Light Control Module. That's about the only other thing other than a bad wire somewhere if the bulbs and fuses are good. 91 Accord has 2. One on each side in the smaller of the 2 rear tail light lenses. In order to change the module you have to remove the smaller of the rear tail lights. Drivers side is 5 pin. Passenger side is 6 pin.
