Question about 1990 Honda Accord

Honda Accord Headlights

When I ran a test light to the fuse panel it did not light up the indicator until I turned the headlight switch to the on position, then it lit up.  Would this not suggest that the switch works?

It depends - I'm not positive on the Hondas, but if the fuse is before the switch, it would indicate that the switch can draw power from the battery. However, if the fault is inside the switch, and the contacts internally are screwed up, it could mean that although the switch draws power from the battery, it cannot transfer it out through the proper wires down to the bulbs. It could still be the switch with an internal failure.

Headlights work, but not Instrument panel, daytime RL....


If the parking lights do not come on, they do have their own fuse, and it could be bad. This is separate from the brake lights.

But if the fuses are all good, then it could be the headlight switch. Remember the switch does the parking lights separate from the main headlights, so that you can just turn on the parking lights if you want, (Paris style). It is a feature left over from WWII, when Europeans were not allowed to run with full headlights at night, in the cities.

Brake Lights out on 1991 Honda Accord


After you have checked the fuseand the bulb connection, you may also want to check the brake switch located at top of the brake padel under the dashboard. Once you push the brake padel, the switch will trigger and the brake light will be on. Use simple 12 volt test pen or voltmeter to test the current supply. Enjoy it.
