I would recommend that you check to make shore that you replaced the bulb with the right bulb. It is common for two different bulbs to have the same base but a different spec on the filament. For example an 1157 and a 2057 bulb are visually identical, but the filaments are different. The reason this difference matters is that the system that monitors the lighting on your car moniters the ohms of resistance in the circuit. A bulb with a lighter filament provides more Resistance and will trigger the system to alert you that a light is out.

The cable tightness is loose therefore causing the light to come on while driving, tighten or replace the eb cable hope that helps or you need to push in the button on it hold the button and pull it back as far as you can. let go then push button pull back farther and release, this should tighten the tension.

My 1994 honda accord break lights wont turn off when car has stop


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"

Make sure you check the spare tire too; had this problem on another model and the dealer said it was the spare which is also monitored.  Good news in case you need it one day.
