Help with fuses

A few days ago my dash, parking, and fog lights went out. I checked the "tail lights" fuse but it seemed fine. I even replaced it just incase but no luck. Is there anything I should try to fix my problem? Thanks in advance guys!

Re: Help with fuses

Check "instruments" fuse. I can't recall what it is right off hand.

Re: Help with fuses

Get a continuity tester/fuse tester - it will make finding a blown fuse so much faster next time.

Re: Help with fuses

Also look into the selector switch for the lights and dash. Lots of hondas have the switch turn on just the tails or just the fronts. But are broken. Do you have the high beams?

Re: Help with fuses

Yeah, your turn signal assembly is shot. Check the tail bulbs to see if the filaments are broken. If all good, switch the assembly. Can you confirm it's not the fuses?

True - but can you say that everyone out there knows how to use a multimeter? let alone want to keep one on their car and use both hands with the leads on every single fuse when they can just stick that sucker on there and get a light with one hand?


lol i'm unfortunately too familiar with multimeters (stay away from ideal amp reader/multimeter combos if your using it for continuity)
