    have you had the brake fluid checked and maybe have the brakes inspected ? it may just be low on fluid

  • Ronnie Houston Dec 06, 2008

    you could have a tail light out on the car and the brake lamp could be telling you that you are low on fluid

  • Ronnie Houston Dec 06, 2008

    it should go off if the fluid level is low on the brakes...if it dosent it means you need to have your brakes checked for wear.

  • Ronnie Houston Dec 06, 2008

    you could have a loose pulley or one the bearings are going out on or just a loose belt

  • Ronnie Houston Dec 06, 2008

    you might have it looked at to be on the safe side. you dont want to wind up stranded anywhere or have the car break down on your way to work or anything,,,have it checked for your own peace of mind

Hi, my brake lamp stays on after turning ignition on in honda accord 1988 carb despite all brake lamps are working fine no burnt one, I appreciate your help


Majdi, if you mean the brake warning light in the dash is on after starting your car, the light is telling you there is a fault/problem with the braking system. You should not continue to drive if the brake warning light is on, as your brakes could fail. You will have to have a good shop check your brakes and diagnose problem and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Brake lamp light is on, also battery light is lit


The brake lamp light simply means one of your brake lights is burned out and the battery light means your alternator is not producing the proper voltage and/or amps to correctly charge the battery.

Hi there. my problem is every time i step on the brake an orange light on the dash appears. the symbol that keeps illuminating is a car with what looks like the rear lights on at the rear. can anybody...


Yes. The reason it looks like the lights on the rear of the car and the reason it comes on every time you are hitting your brakes, is because your lamp-out module is trying to tell you that you have a brake lamp that is not working. This is normal function if you ave a burned out bulb or a broken wire in your brake lamps. It does not set any codes, so there is nothing to "reset". Just fix the brake lamp and the warning lamp will go away.

Brake lamp light on a 2002 Honda Accord SE


I assume you mean the one on the dash. This is an indicator that there is a problem in your braking system. Make sure it's not low on Brake fluid and have the brake system checked or check it yourself. If your going to check it yourself I recommend the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle as a reference.

Brake lamp light came on dashboard - ?? does that mean my taillight is out?


Usaly the Red brake lamp means your brake system needs service, It will set when emergency brake is moved even the slightest, Or if the brake fluid level is to low. If it is low? Do not top it off, Inspect for leaks, And pad/shoe wear. if all is well then the mastercylender is bypassing and needs replaced

Brake lamp comes on as soon I push the brake pedal


If you mean that the brake warning lamp on the dash board comes on when you press the brake, then its because the brake fluid level is low and/or the brake pads are worn down to the limit.
If you mean that the brake lamps at the rear of the vehicle comes on when you press the brake, then thats how it should work, to let other road users know you are stopping. Hope that helps

Brake lamp is on


when the brake light is on it usualy means one of two things. First one is parking brake is on, second is low on brake fluid. More then likely time to change brake pads or could be leak in the system.
