Question about 1991 Honda Accord

91 honda accord emergancy brake light turns on randomly

I am have a 91 Honda accord and recently I ve noticed the emergency brake light (red one on the dash board) will turn off and on randomly even if the e-brake was never engaged. It does not turn on like its flashing but will turn on stay on for a few secs turn off and wont turn back on for a few mins. Honestly there is no interval but I have noticed it coming on when it is really cold out and if the car has sat for awhile. That said if i drive the car and come back later i see no problems again until tomorrow or after a few hours of sitting. I might be over reacting but i just dont want the e-brake to actually be engaged with out me noticed and destroying my transmission.

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.

Sounds like you might have a caliper that is stuck and is not fully disengaging. If it is in the rear then you may have a bad rear caliper. Twoo things you can try. One is to crawl under the ca and adjust the tension two nuts on the emergency brake line. If that does not resolve the problem then remove the back tire and try to spin the drum or rotor whichever you may have. If it does not spin then try adjusting the e brake cable more if it still does not respond then you need to do a brake rebuild. Also does it pull while it is dragging? If it is then you will need to rebuild the brakes no matter what.

Tip

Emergency brake


I recently bought a 92 Honda Acord LX...146000Miles on it. I recently took of the back wheels to check the brakes. My wife thought the rear brakes were dragging since when she takes her foot off the accelerator the car slows down, unlike our Town & Country which has over drive. The Honda has a 4 sp auto and it feels like it is shifting ok but, we wonder if it ever gets to 4th which I assume is OD...or is it? It shifts rather positive,which is OK with me....no slipping into gear for smoother shifting. I digress.
What I really want to know is what kind of set-up does the Honda have as far as the emergency brake goes.....cables or something else? I found no cables going to the rear wheels....or else the are hidden real good. We are afraid to use the emergency brake since another used car we bought once had rusted cables and we locked up the rear wheels and couldn't release them. I had to tear it all down and install new cables.
Sorry, as you can see, I ramble. All I want to know is does the car have cables or some other means for the emergency brake? Thanx

Please my 1997 honda accord dash board brake lamp is on permanetly, what should i do


Check brake fluid level, check hand brake (emergency) is down & released all the way. Otherwise, have brakes checked a.s.a.p. in case of dangerous problem. Not something you want to ignore.
