Tail lights, ambient lights, climate control lights

Hi guys I bought a used 2017 Acura MDX SH-AWD a few months ago. Im having a problem with some of the lighting. My tail lights, ambient lights, climate control lights, PRND lights are out and some of the settings for my windshield wipers donít work. I know thereís a short because the fuse keeps blowing out. Itís the fuse for ďsmall lightĒ in the fuse box under the hood. Any help would be much appreciated.

If it's still under warranty (assuming that it is since its a 2017) then why bother. Just take it in to the dealer and let them deal with it.

Where was the accident? Front left would be my guess? Shorts behind the MICU perhaps

The hit was in the front but more in the passenger side. They were all working when I first got it and all of a sudden they stopped working. Was thinking maybe someone else had the same issue.

Since itís been in an accident Iíd lean toward an intermittent short in the parking light circuit. I would start my search in the front corner where the most damage was. Look under hood/pull that headlight to look for a damaged wire harness. The harness could move around when you hit bumps and an exposed wire could short to ground which would blow the fuse.
