As an off the top of my head answer, it would seem that water is getting into the radiator or onto the exhaust and condensing on the ignition system, causing it to ground out, Try spraying all the exhaust components that your can see that are likely ot be affected with a water repellent spray. Seal your plug leads at the plug and distributor head with a small smear of silicone sealant. Also check the inside of your distributor cap for moisture build up and spray that as well.

There are the locations.
The issue should just be a blown fuse under the dash.
Look on the inside of the fuse box cover and see if it tells you which one is for the lights.
You can always pull them out one by one to check and see if it is blown.
You will see a U shape metal bridge on the inside/side of the fuse.
If you see the bridge broken, replace that fuse.

1997 Honda accord ex leaking water from blower motor


if you are running your A/C or the windshield defrost function it may be a hose that has come loose from the A/C evaporator housing (which is attached to the blower motor housing).
Otherwise... it sounds more like an issue involving the heater core !
Does the smell of the liquid smell sweet?

1993 honda accord ex drove in rain belt squeeled


Sounds like maybe the ECU had taken in some water. Is your ECM located behind the engine on the firewall? There are two large fuses located on the passenger side wheel well in the engine bay. They are two large (2" plastic covers) over them.

Steam from under hood at idle.


My '97 CR-V would get hot enough at idle to evaporate rainwater on the hood, but I've never had steam come out from under the hood that wasn't one of these few solutions:

1. Coolant system leak in which the coolant is somehow being leaked or displaced onto a very hot engine component such as the exhaust manifold.

2. EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) system failure in which fumes (and thus 'steam' or 'steam-like' discharge) are being introduced under the hood.

3. Exhaust leak near the engine.

4. Some (all?) vehicles cycle the A/C compressor whilst the selctor is in the DEFROST position. Is it possible that some condesate from the evaporator is spilling onto hot underhood engine parts?

5. Failure of supply hose to windwhield washer jets, usually caused by alcohol drying out the hose. Then, the washer fluid leaks on the hot engine, causing steam.

Check closely under there, I bet you find the problem.
