What is wrong with a 1990 Honda Civic that blows the dashlight and tail light fuse but the headlights and brake lights work?

Nothing. In honda's,even up through the later models, the tail lights and dash lighs are on the same fuse. Did you put in a radio? Did you use the dash light feed as a radio ground? Take out the radio, replace the fuse, and try again, if it works, find a new radio ground (I like the heavy black wire on the lighter). Relentless It could be there is a wire the is grounding out somewhere along and both the dash and the taillights are on the same circuit.

Daytime running lights on a Honda Civic are the same as normal headlights. To fix or replace them, locate the headlight housing in the front of the car. Remove the plastic housing and replace the bulbs.

One can purchase headlights for a Honda Civic, directly from a Honda dealership. They can also be purchased from auto part stores. Many stores like Walmart have an automotive counter where you can get these headlights. One can also purchase them from an auto recycling business. They usually carry both new and used headlights for the Honda Civic.

No because the headlights are shaped differently...

Your dimmer switch is either set to minimum intensity or malfunctioning.

Honda Civic headlights on a 1997 model use adjustment screws. Tightening or loosening these screws allow the light to either be aimed up or down.

The horn on a 2005 Honda Civic is located at the front of the engine compartment near the headlights. This position allows it to be projected out of the vehicle and heard better.

As I recall, there is no relay involved in this. When you say dashlight, you mean the lights on the guages when the headlights are on? (gauge illumination) When you say taillights, do you mean the 'running lights' that are on when the headlights are on, or the brake lights? If you are describing both running lights and guage illumination, then that would point to faulty light switch, loose ground wire under the dash, or fault in supply wiring. The gauge illumination has a dimmer module which can be faulty (but very unlikely to affect exterior lights) If one of these is the gauge illumination, and the other is the brake lights, then this would point to a faulty ground wire connection as the supply circuits to these two functions is not common.

The ground circuit for your Honda Civic brake lights can be found on the rear frame rail. The ground circuit will be on the drivers side frame rail.

There are several warning lights on a 2008 Honda Civic. The main lights are for the brake system, air bag system, check engine, tire pressure, oil pressure, and battery power.

low charge, rough idle, dimmed lights. With the vehicle running and headlights on or wipers on the alternator should be charging around 15v 15.5v
