2000 Honda Prelude Tail/Small Light fuses keep blowing

So basically here is the jist of it. About 3 months ago I wired in some halogens along with a HID Kits on my lude. They worked great for about a month and a half. Then one day at night the lights flickered and then went out along with the dash and taillight fuse so I found the tail light fuse and upped the amp to 25 and it worked, until I drove down the road and went over a speed bump and the went out again. SO I found out that the small light fuse under the hood had blown so I took the same strategy and both my Taillight fuse and Small light fuse have been taking turns blowing. I stopped that method obviously and i unplugged my HID and tried with new fuses to see if maybe my HID were causing electrical problems. Nope, I really need to fix this and dont want to go to a mechanic and would like to be able to drive at night. I figure something has to be moving around and causing a short. Any ideas guys.

Re: 2000 Honda Prelude Tail/Small Light fuses keep blowing

Do u have a afyermarket radio that the harness was cut to make radio work? Same thing use to happen to me with crappy radio hookup. But mine was caused by getting down on it and it would pop the fuse.. I have a stg3 clutch that grabs harder than my friends stg5 comp clutch so it jerks stuff. Look to see that no wires are touching under fuse box, interior, and in the trunk

Re: 2000 Honda Prelude Tail/Small Light fuses keep blowing

Fuses are rated for a reason...circuit protection! Installing a fuse with a higher rating is looking for trouble!
Gather the wiring diagrams and look at the common power circuits with regard for the fuses that have been blowing. I would think you have a loose power connection or damaged wiring that shorts out with movement/vibration.
