I own a 94 accord lx. Auto. 180000 miles on her. I bought the car off of a family member for a steal. About 8 months after I purchased the car the horn went off in a continuous annoying loud beep. The lights on the interior of the car started flashing like disco lights. Now, two months later after about 294894 people have looked at it, there is a list of things gone wrong:
-the right headlight is the only one that works, unless you put the highbeams on, then they both work
-the right reverse light is the only one that works
-interior lights are out
-rights signal light stays on
-when you signal, the interior lights blink with the rythm of the signal
the car had come with a stock factory alarm, which my sister had lost. Someone had mentioned that might be the problem. But other people suggest that it has something to do with the wiring by the front driver fender, which I was told was once removed to fix some wires that run to the ground. Pleasssssseeee help me:)

I only use it about 4 times a year to hall a camper and tow a trailer with ATV's. Other then that it is not a daily driver.

It is a 351 windsor v8 EFI with automatic transmission. The magnaflow website shows 2 cat's one is a "light duty" direct fit for the 1988 f250 with 351 windsor and the other which is a visually larger unit for the "heavy" duty. Based on my vin # my truck is the "heavy duty" I was given a brand new magnaflow cat. The model number if needed is on my first post. Both of theese will fit my truck exactly. The heavy duty cat is visually larger and is said to be used with the 8501lb and up GVW truck which mine is. The light duty is for the truck that is up to 8500GVW. The heavy duty cat also retails around 600.00. Where this light duty version is 180.00. Since it was free and new I thought it might be worth using as long as it did not rob me from any power when I am haulling and towing a few times a year.

Sounds like a ground problem or something shorting across. Check and replace every fuse that may be blown. Inspect all light grounds carefully. Do you have a test light? Youre gonna need it to fix this one
