Troubleshooting Honda Accord Interior Lightsby Daniel Valladares
Working interior lights, although not necessary for safety or for the functioning of the Honda Accord, are preferable to not being able to see in the dark. If your interior lights are malfunctioning, there could be two possible causes: The bulbs have burnt out, or the fuse has blown. Replacing either one is a simple process, and it only takes 10 minutes to check both.
Interior Light Bulb
Shut off the Accord's engine and turn the lamp switch to the "Off" position.
Insert a slotted screwdriver between the interior light lens and the ceiling of the Accord. Pry off the lens.
Remove the bulbs by twisting them to the left. Install new bulbs by twisting them to the right. Use 12V-8W bulbs for the interior lights.
Reattach the lens to the interior lights.
Interior Light Fuse
Shut off the Accord's engine and open the hood.
Remove the cover from the underhood fuse-block near the battery. Locate the fuse in the cavity numbered "3."
Remove the fuse and replace it with a new 7.5A fuse.
Reattach the cover to the fuse-block and close the hood.
