Icon2 My Lude's General electrical problems PLEASE HELP!

I have been toying around with this car all day, and I'm really starting to wonder about some things... If you can help me out, seeing how I'm new to Honda's, Please post what you think.

- Only a few things on the dashboard light up, Probably due to bad fuses, but oh well.

- Cigarette Lighter/Power inverter doesn't work (hey, I need my phone charger!! )

- Cabin light doesn't work

- E-brake barely works...hmm...=/


That's pretty much it, I think, I'll toy around with it a little more tomorrow.

1 & 2 check fuses

3, maybe the bulb is blown?

4, that could be a few things, seized caliper, faulty e-brake cables etc.

on the E brake, remove the console between the seats (remove the cover on back to access the bolts) check to make sure that it looks something like this:
-[= and not like this -/= or this -\=
you might just need to adjust the bracket that has the break lines going to it. also, likePrelude13 said, check the rear brakes. jack up the rear end, jut on jack stands, apply the E brake and see if either wheel has free spin.
good luck

as stated above, most likely bad bulbs and fuses. You can download the service manual in the sticky for 3rd gens and it has a very detailed instruction on troubleshooting/aadjusting the e-brake. (and electrical probs too)
