Same problem. Lights go dim and then go bright they vary. Haven't noticed the check engine light coming up.

Intermittent problem.. so no repair done yet. Dash lights dim for 10 second then return to normal repeating this continuously over a 40 mile evening drive on interstate highway. Had a/c and radio on which seemed to have it's volume diminished. I've also had the driver side window open on occasion as well as the horn start blowing when the car was in the garage unattended. From all I've read online it appears this is a ELD, Electronic Load Detection repair which for a 2005 Honda Accord 2.4l coupe requires replacing the entire Fuse Box.. can't just replace the ELD. Help! Don't want to pay dealer prices...

As we are driving the lights and anything Electric goes wild and blinks to. It sucks alot becuase when it rains it makes it hard to see. they honestly honda needs to realize they need to fix this problem becuase one day someone is going to be killed by this. I love my car but this is a dislike turnoff to much cost in it to fixing it. voltage goes high and low.
extremely low headlights.
