Question about Honda Accord
Very common problem. The ground wires in the tail lamp assemblies like to come loose and burn the tail light housing, causing ground problems that can exhibit the symptoms you are describing. I have had real good luck fixing this with some very small diameter bolts and nuts (I usually use a #6 machine screw) from the local hardware store. Find the point where the ground wire has melted the plastic housing. (It will be at the base of one or more of the light bulbs) Take a drill and drill a hole the size of your bolts all the way through the tail lamp housing. Re-attach the ground wire with the bolt and put the nut on the outside of the housing. Check ALL the ground connections on the tail lamp assemblies and repeat as necessary. This should alleviate the problem.
NOTE: The machine screws need to be pretty long (about 1-1/2 Inches) to get all the way through the hosing for some places. Other places, they do not need to be that long. If you get several long bolts they can be used for either. You can cut the ends off after installing them if they are too long to allow the trunk lining to be re-installed properly Also, it is best to use self-locking huts so they will stay tight.
