You wrote: down next to your left foot is a panel. 1 screw and then pull it of. the problem is the relay in the center. there is 3 relays the dash tailights and liciense plate light relay is the center relay.
Thanks ever so much for this answer. You have saved my Isuzu Rodeo. When the taillights stopped working, along with the dash lights, I took it to the Dealer. They informed me that the only thing it could be, was theHeadlight Switch on the left side of the steering wheel. Est. Cost to fix, $1,200.
Since your post, I have ordered another relay for $34.00 and have installed it. Everything works fine now. Never knew that there were relays under that panel.

I have a 2002 Passport with a new battery, battery connections and starter but It still won't crank over. It has power to the headlights and dash and horn but not to the windows door locks or fan blower. I don't see any of the fuses that are blown. Would appreciate any input.

I have a '98 LX Honda Passport that is 4dr 4 wheel drive. My car has been having some strange electrial problems. For a while when I used the turn signals it would blow out a fuse and when the car shifted into 3rd gear it would make a hard clunking noise & it sounded like the transmission was going to fall out. When I changed the fuse then everything worked fine. To avoid having the problem I just stopped using my turn signals. I recently had to have the car inspected and for some reason when they did the turn signals everything worked fine. Since it didn't blow out the fuse I used my turn signals all weekend. Then all of the sudden the power outlet didn't work. Then today the radio, clock and the dome light aren't working. When I checked the fuses the dome light fuse was lit up - even after the car was turned off. When I went to replace it the fuse blew again and still stayed lit up and it didn't fix any of my problems. Does anyone have any suggestions?
#49 of 114 95 honda passport.. serious electrical problem!!
Sep 09, 2009 (6:23 am)
For starters, when we bought this vehicle used, all that was wrong was the timing belt had slipped. by the time we got the tools and parts to change the timing belt, the battery had went dead, so i had the battery de-sulfated, and made brand new again. after the battery was installed again, we noticed that somehow from time the vehicle sat, it developed a major short that was blowing the Main 100 AMP fuse. we went ahead and installed the new timing belt, but still have yet to find what is causing my short.
when the alternator is disconnected, the short dissapears, but i do realize that this could possibly be because the alternator being disconnected causes the circuit to close to the rest of the componets. i had the alternator checked at autozone, and it tested good. tested at orielys, failed. so i bought a brand new alternator, hooked it up, and i still have the same problem. ive taken off all the covering on the wire going from the alternator all the way to the harness behind the main fuse box, and there arent any shorts or cuts in the wires, we've had the starter checked at autozone, it tested good, the wires that connect to the starter dont seem to be damaged, and ive also taken off every fuse in the main fuse box, then tried bypassing the main 100 amp with a 4 gauge wire while the alternator was connected, but there was still a short!! somebody please help me

I have a 2002 Honda Passport that will not start. I have put 2 batteries, an alternator and starter and had the grounds checked. The darn thing keeps draining the battery and will not turn over. I am a lost for what to too with it next. I use this car to go back and forth to work and to transport my elderly mom to her doctor’s appointments. Wish I had the money to purchase something else but I don't. Please help

I know it has been a while since your problem started, but just wondering if you got it fixed. I had a similiar problem with CEL and reduced power light. Took 3 mechanics and 7 months to diagnose properly and fix.

I have a similar problem. Once in every 80-100 starts, it won't start. Nothing happens when you try to start. We replaced the ignition switch and the starter relay. Also, the battery terminals. I always starts cold, in the morning, but sometimes when it is parked at an angle, or after getting gas a gas station, it won't restart. The only thing that sometime helps is to turn it to start, then turn the headlights on and off. It doesn't seem to help to pull it in and out of park to neutral. Did you get your problem fixed? Do you thing it's a ground? It usually happens when my wife is driving and she gets off work late at night out-of-town. She refuses to drive it until it's fixed.
#53 of 114 Honda Passport Dashboard Lights and Tail lights
Oct 03, 2009 (4:26 pm)
I was wondering if anyone could help solve my problem.
My 1995 Honda Passport tail lights and dashboard lights are not working properly. Whenever I insert a new 10a fuse the lights come on momentarily but then very quickly blow.
Could anyone steer me in the right directions. This did not always happen, so i'm a little confused.
