(98 Honda Accord Brake light

My brake light comes on nwith a fast accleration, turning sharp corners or hard braking. After each time the light eventually goes out. Takes about a min for the light to go out, but it does go out. My reservoir is full! Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks

    Since I wrote up this problem. I have driven the car and the light hasn't come on as yet. As I said all I did was remove the cap and check the fluid level and it was ok.



    Now I have driven the car and made fast acclerations and sharp turns and no light? I agree with you that the cap could be the problem. However in my case when the light came on it wasn't to long afterwards that it went back out. That is why I thought it was the fluid level. The light never did stay on long.

    I really appreciate your response and I will keep close tabs on the light, if it comes on again and then goes out in about a 30 second period of time I will let you know. Can you think of anything else that could cause this , or would it still be a bad float and switch?

Unplug the wires going to the brake master cap. if the light quits coming on you have a bad brake master cap and float. replace the cap with a dealer part. dont just leave it unplugged it can cause other problems. I have replaced alot of these caps.

1993 Honda accord EX no brake lights


This sounds like Brake Light Switch, can be found at any local parts store, for under $15 and easy enough to replace. The switch is located under the brake pedal and depresses when you hit the brakes, causing the brake lights to turn on. Replacing this is cheap and easy.

I have a 1991 honda accord the brake lamp light comes on & off yet all of the back lights work properly why does the brake lamp light come on if the lights work properly


You can try to replace all the brake lamp bulbs as sometimes eventhough all bulbs are working but one of them is about to blow and give high resistance. That's why the brake lamp lights up.

There is a little plastic piece in your brake pedal that hits the switch to turn the brake lights off. These pieces wear out over time and need to be replaced, they should cost $5 or less at the Honda dealer. They pop in very easily. Just describe your problem to the parts guy and he should know exactly the piece you need. Good luck

Brake lights are not working on my 98 honda accord. Tail lights, turn signal, backup lights are all working.


probably the switch underneath the brake pedal. take off the drivers kick panel and look up underneath and behind the pedal arm to see if there is a small switch behind it. its probably pushed out of the way.

Car brake lights won t turn off when car is shut down 1996 Honda Odyssey


It should be your brake light switch. There is a little plate welded to the arm of the pedal that has a hole with a rubber stopper. The rubber stopper is most likely missing, or damaged. You should be able to take a flashlight and see the plate and the switch. If the hole is plugged up, you will need the brake light switch, if not, replace the plug.
