The ignition will come on as the engine will have stalled whats happening is when you press the brake the brake servo is taking all the vacuum out of the inlet manifold causing the engine to stall does your brake pedal feel ok because the usuall cause of this problem is the brake master cylinder is leaking brake fliud into the servo the fluid gets sucked into the inlet manifold causing it to get blown out of the exaust replace the master cylnder try again yates210456

I have a 2001 Acura Integra,the maintenance requested light is on and the e-brake light doesn't seem to turn off, but there seems to be no driving difficulty. 1. What needs to be done to fix this? 2. Do...

The process of turning off the maintenance requested light is a little different for each Acura/Honda Its usually in the owners manual. It involves holding the trip meter button on the gauge cluster and then turning the ignition half way on for a certain amount of time. To get rid of the e-brake light its probably the sensor underneath the center console. You just need to remove the center console to gain access to the switch. Then play around with the switch a little bit until you figure out why its staying on. While your in their looking at the switch you might as well adjust your ebrake by tightening the screw thats inline with the cord to the rear brakes.

Put your key in turn it on dont start wait 10 mins remove key wait 10 seconds repeat this a total of 3 times. If that dont work try a different key do the same thing. If that dont work a dealer needs to probably replace and reprogram your ignition switch and keys
