    well there is no code 27 and im not sure if code 20 could mess with that, thats the electrical load detector. but i would check my fuses first. and code 7 is the throttle position sensor so thats not gonna do it

    I had the same problem with my integra it is the same fuse for dashlights and taillights (probobly so that you know your taillights are out) it would randomly blow the fuse and I hunted it down and one of the wires for my marker light in the front was shorting out when i turned the lights on because it was pinched behind the headlight.. have you done anything to your headlights/taillights recently that may have caused something like that to happen? its just an idea or somewhere to start

    I have the exact same problem with my 93 4dr, except it turns out to be a bad dimmer switch, but definitely check the fuses.

    dude you almost definitely blew the fuse... like previously stated, the tails are on the same fuse as the dash lights so that you know when they dont work.

    the dimmer switch (the dial that lets you dim or brighten the dash lights) is on that same circuit so it is possible theres a short there... but first thing to do is check the fuse!
