Question about 1992 Honda Accord
Just bought this car, needs work but runs great. Turned car off and turned off lights. Came out later to brake lights on and couldn't get them to turn off. While driving they stay on as well. Disco battery is what I'm doing in mean time. thanks!
There is a little stopper on the brake pedal that is missing you will need to get your VIN number and call your Honda dealer they should have it in stock. Put a little soap on it then snap in into the hole in the brake pedal where the stop light switch is. problem solved, good luck!

the plastic round stopper most probably broke that is were the stoplight switch sits when not depressed easy fix find a washer small enough to block the hole were the original plastic stopper was making sure the washer aligns to the brake light switch and secure washer w/ zipties hope this helps.

It sounds like your brake pedal switch is not working right. Are the lights on all the time, or just when you turn ignition off? If the former, it is bad brake switch. If the latter, you likely have a bad ground located somewhere in the wiring harness.
Most vehicles have the switch located on a small plate next to the brake pedal arm. Follow the pedal up the arm and to the firewall. Along the way you should see a plunger style switch that looks like the one that you bought. It might also be found inside or next to the brake booster under the hood.

Most likely the brake light switch located down on the brake pedal lever has either malfunctioned, or is out of adjustment, and when the brake pedal is in the "up" position the brake light switch should be fully depressed, and if it is not then dis-connect the wiring connector to the brake light switch and then turn the brake light switch in until it just fully depresses the brake light switch, and then tighten the locking nut(s) and reconnect the wire connector to the brake light switch, and then test to see that the brake lights are working properly.
If the brake light switch seems to be adjusted properly, then dis-connect the wiring connector to the brake light switch, and if the brake lights go out then replace the brake light switch and adjust it as described above.
