Question about 1997 Honda Accord
The stop lights on my 97 Accord are not working. I checked the fuse and it is ok. I checked both bulbs and they appear to be ok. Running lights and turn signals work fine.
Well, if the fuse and bulbs are still good, and you're getting all of the rest of your lights to come on, chances are your brake light switch is bad. They're most always located at the very top of the brake pedal. Sometimes it's necessary to remove the lower portion of your dash cover to access it, but once you gain access, you can check it by putting a voltage meter on the wires going to it and pressing down on the brake pedal while reading the meter. That way, if it's not bad, you don't actually have to remove it. If you don't get voltage when applying pressure to the brake pedal however, you can count on having to replace it, which should be rather inexpensive at your local parts store. Hope this sheds some (brake) light on your problem. Have a great evening!
