interior electrical problems :frown:

Hey everyone, Ive got a 2000 prelude base, and I am getting some kind of short in the electrical. The dome lights are shorted out and when I try and turn them on it shorts out the cd player and 12v cig, also some times the power for those doesnt come on at all, and sometimes hitting the break petal does it too.

Can anyone shed some light on my problem?

Re: interior electrical problems :frown:

grab a test light and check your fuzes. i just delt with this about 9 weeks ago.

Edit: If its just shorting out... its going to be a constant hot line. It "should" blow a fuze. When I had the issue I would turn on the dome light and the stereo would shut off(dome light wouldnt actually turn on, it was just switch position). Ended up being a fuze. If I dont see an answer to this by tomorrow I will go pull apart my car and see what I find for constant hot wires that chase those items (tunes, light, and cig lighter) to help find a short.

Re: interior electrical problems :frown:

If it should have blown a fuse but didn't what exactly should I should I be looking for?

Does anyone know where the harnesses are for the power for the lights and radio and where the wire leads to and from?

Re: interior electrical problems :frown:

download your Gen specific repair guide in the gen specific forum on the Prelude specific web site we here call Prelude zone and then scroll to the electrical specific section that specifically details the specific wiring for your specific problem.

its there.... I would not tell a lie.

Re: interior electrical problems :frown:

I dont remember writing any of that. wow. Its like drunk texting but worse. Thank God I didnt go take my car apart.

Anyways, LilMs is right. Hit up the wiring diagrams and then go chase the wire. Remember the car has two fuse blocks as well.

Re: interior electrical problems :frown:

Um yep probably

What does the wiring look like behind your radio, I'm wondering if someone did a hatchet job on the stereo splicing and cutting and electical tape. If so your looking into a nightmare of tracking it down.

Re: interior electrical problems :frown:

no, I put my stereo in, but just to be sure i took everything off and checked all the fuses again.... nothing I did.

I tried tracing the wiring from the overhead lights but couldn't find anything, I dont know whats up with it.

Have you found out yet if all those things are on the same circuit yet? If all are affected the same I'd say it has something to do with the harness into the fuse box itself especially if its not blowing the fuse.
