1990 honda civic: dashboard and tail light gremlins?
I bought a honda civic because I thought it'd be a sturdy, reliable car for
while I'm in college. Well, I was surprised when the car turned out to be
trouble. Recently, the stereo stopped working for no apparent reason. I
tried replacing the fuse under the steering wheel, but that didn't do
anything. Next, the battery and alternator both had to be
replaced...leading up to my current problem. The dashboard lights and tail
lights no longer function! I've replaced the only fuse for them I could
find...the one under the dashboard. Is there anywhere else I should look?
I've lost confidence in my mechanic---they did a diagnostic and said
everything was fine, charged me for the new alternator and battery, and
sent me on my way. I'm sort of new to car repair. Anything I should be
looking for? Or should I just suck it up and go back to the mechanic?
Generally there's 2 fuses for such like that. One will say "cluster" possibly, and another may say "Elec" or "Electrical". Just take out a test light if you have one and test all your fuses by touching the top metal diode of each fuse. Easiest way to test if it's a fuse.
thanks for the advice! i've decided to try to learn as much as i can about my car, and it's kinda intimidating for a beginner. i'll definetely check that out!
