1998 Honda Accord blows a 20-amp fuse

Dear Doctor: I own a 1998 Honda Accord. Occasionally it blows a 20-amp fuse that controls the automatic shift interlock, brake lights and horn. What is causing this fuse to go out? Roberto


Dear Roberto: You have to have a professional technician check where the short circuit is located. I have seen rear brake light bulbs and the brake light wire harness in the trunk cause shorts. I have yet to see a faulty shift interlock. If the problem was horn related it would blow the fuse when the horn pad is depressed.
