Welcome to JustAnswer.

Can you please tell me the fuse number you are replacing? Is it one or two fuses? When you say brake lights would it possibly the taillights? The interior, dash, and taillights are on the same fuse. The brake lights are on a different fuse. Another question, is there a aftermarket stereo installed in the car? A non-factory unit?

Thanks, Honda-Man

brake lights, headlights, turnsignals all work, interior light stayed on when I left the headlight switch in off position, when headlight switch was turned on, fuse blew out immediately. It has a factory radio installed that came with car. Now the code for the radio is showing that it needs to be re coded for the radio to go on. the fuse is under the hood 10amp. the interior light fuse under the dash #8 is good

Sorry for the delay.

Can you please tell me if the fuse is #2 in the diagram I attached?

Thanks, Honda-Man

It should be a 15 amp fuse. Before we get too involved can you try a 15 amp fuse? Might just be the 10 amp fuse is too small.
