Re: my 1994 honda accord break lights wont turn off when...
Brake in a car is verry important for your saffety and others. that why they install many devices or systems to control them and make shure they work propely 1; brake light switch on the pedal floor(to indicate to the folowing car that you are stoping) 2;brake sensor fluid level (on the brake master cylinder under the hood)
to monitor the level of the fluid in the reservoir 3; brake pressure sensor (on the brake dispencer under hood) will warn you in case of brake pressure faillure .note, it may be more sensors, depending on the make of the vehicle but this is the tree comon causes for brake ligth to stay "on"

Check your brake pedal arm where the brake light switch touches it. You'll most likely find a hole where a plastic plug should be and is letting the brake light switch plunger stay extended. An easy fix is to superglue a coin over the hole or simply insert a body panel type clip into it which you can get at your local auto parts store.
In all probability, the brake switch got stuck in the closed position.
One way to test it is by trying to move the shift lever from Park to
Neutral without depressing the brake. If you can do this, then the
switch is damaged. It is very simple and inexpensive to replace.It is
located a few inches above the brake pedal rubber pad.
u have a problem with ur break light switch,,, its at the brake pedal and is threaded into the brake pedal bracket, if u have a new one and are going to replace it, disconnect the connector, loosen the 14mm nut and remove the switch by turning it counterclockwise...install ther new switch by turning it clockwise and tightening the 14mm nut then reconnect the connector...be sure to adjust the switch or else the brake lights will stay on at all times...draining ur battery and possibly burning out ur bulbs...this also releases ur trans from park to put into gears
Your brake light switch is most likely bad. Under the dash there is a switch that when you push the brake pedal, a pin extends to complete the circuit. There should be a bracket with a rubber tab on it attached to the pedal lever itself. If the rubber tab is missing, it will also allow your brake lights to stay on.
