Default On my 1995 honda accord my brake lights and my headlights wont work.?

Things ive tried: Replace the stop light switch,wire harness, tail light wire harness, all the light bulbs replaced, all fuses replaced. grounded was done complete.

I have tested all of the fuses every one of them are working and getting the power they need. im thinking its internal wiring i cant get to, same with the tail lights.

here's something that you could "do it yourself" at home. Buy a test light at your local Auto part store (looks like a screwdriver, with a cable attached to the end of it). Clip the cable to the positive side of your battery and open up your fuse box. I'm not sure where it is in an accord but, on most cars they are found under the hood. If you can't find it check the owner's manual.

Once you open the fuse box you will see a bunch of little fuses with the numbers "15", "20" or even "25" on them.

Place the metal tip of the test light on both ends of the fuse, one at a time. If the handle of your tool lights up for each side, your fuse is good. If one side lights up and the other doesn't replace the fuse with a new one.

This could be the problem. If it isn't take it to a shop, don't do any further work to it.

If you don't know basic electricity you can short circuit your car.

Hope it works and Good luck.
