I thanked you Mustangfan because I do tell him all the time, he even just admitted it
Then again he asks me when I'm getting a Honda
We knew it was a faulty ground but just didn't know where. So here's the update.
Got it to stop blowing fuses. Pretty mush unplugged everything on the fuse. Pulled out the front bulbs, unplugged the rear tail light connectors, instrument cluster and HVAC cluster lights. Pulled the dash back out, no biggie it was just six bolts (thank you Honda's under engineering
). Looked at the rest of the harness but it all looked fine.
We then plugged each bulb in one by one with the parking light switch on, waiting to see when the fuse blows. We get all the parking lights in on the front with out the fuse going. We know from the previous night it's not the tail lights but still have them unplugged. Only thing that's left is the instrument cluster and HVAC cluster lights WHICH is where we thought it was all grounding out.
We then plugged in the HVAC plug, since it was a simple +12/GND harness and POP!
There goes the fuse. We now know where it's coming from, which we didn't really expect since the wires looked fine and weren't, or shouldn't have been tampered with.
I ghetto tested the theory by jumping the harness with a piece of wire and fuse goes again, so we had isolated where our short was.
I start undoing all the tape around the wires to trace them and we lose it behind the carpet/firewall. I do some testing with the instrument cluster and such and the cluster still works. Again I trace the wires going back and into the fuse box and it all disappears into the upper drivers kick panel.
We left the HVAC lights unplugged as it wasn't all important and everything now works.
Now the new theory is the short is grounding out somewhere along or on the dimmer switch wires, since the dimmer switch no longer works, the short is now just completely bypassing the dimmer.
