Electrical Problem

I recently blew the fuse to my tail lights, when I replaced it the fuse blew again. I replaced it twice more and it blows both times, so again I put in a new one this time it doesn't blow but my tail lights still don't come on nor do my gauge lights. Have I fried an electrical board?

I had that problem too but when Mine blew it made all my interior lights not work also, but come to find out when my after market head unit was put in the dimmer wire wasn't taped up and thats why, I still have no dash lights b-c it blew my dimmer relay under the hood. but after i taped the dimmer wire to the radio up my tail-lights were fine.

i'd say you fried some wires or something. racing the amperage only allows the wires to get hotter, thus produce more power. too hot and they will burn up.

Try changing the fuse on the interior lights or it could be a possible other fuse that is blown, We are talking honda here half of the wires are ran to fues's that dont matter and what not , like that suspicious radio fuse under the hood ..... what does it go to ... Not the radio that is the interior lights fuse. Check all the fuses you have Dont ever put the wrong watage in and good luck im sure its just a blown fuse. Try also taking Negative battery wire off when changing it also, Not always do you need to do this but if you put it in and it blows then you might have to ! Any other problems with it or you cant figure it out still PM me

which wires are you talking about? I had a similar problem and it's semi-fixed. I got my taillights to work again, but my front parking lights still don't work and neither do my fogs.
