    Have you checked to make sure that your master cylinder is not low on brake fluid?

Open the hood and look near the firewall on the drivers side. You will see the black rubber cap on a plastic resevoir. There is a switch that turns on when the fluid level gets low. This may be your issue.
Please remember to rate this solution.

You have to have your brake system checked. It is a malfunction. the brake light comes on when the computer module senses something wrong with the main brake system.. If it was the ABS it would be different.

Hi, my brake lamp stays on after turning ignition on in honda accord 1988 carb despite all brake lamps are working fine no burnt one, I appreciate your help


Majdi, if you mean the brake warning light in the dash is on after starting your car, the light is telling you there is a fault/problem with the braking system. You should not continue to drive if the brake warning light is on, as your brakes could fail. You will have to have a good shop check your brakes and diagnose problem and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Brake lamp light on a 2002 Honda Accord SE


I assume you mean the one on the dash. This is an indicator that there is a problem in your braking system. Make sure it's not low on Brake fluid and have the brake system checked or check it yourself. If your going to check it yourself I recommend the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle as a reference.

1991 honda accord brake light indicator stays on dash


Brake light switch? Its mounted near the top of the brake pedal lever. The lever contacts and holds the switch closed which keeps the lights from turning on when at rest. When you step on the brake, the contact is broken, the switch extends and completes the circuit allowing the brake lights to illuminate.

TCS light & ABS Light on/off intermitent


usually when there is an interuption in current flow you will get flickering indicator lights on the dash. This means one of two things, either the sensors that control those indicator lights are becoming faulty or the alternator may be on its way out. One thing you need to keep in mind if you ABS unit is on its way out you will not notice any difference in drivability. ABS is just a brake assist(Antilock Brake System) when it fails you don't lose your brakes you just stop like a regular brake system would without an assist.(ABS) Maybe the unitis on its way out as well.. I would ge it checked as well.. Good Luck

Door ajar and brakelamp lights on dash go on randomly for no reason, sometimes very bright, and sometimes not so bright. At first it would come on for a few seconds. Now it seems to be happening more and...


The brakelamp could mean brake probs or brake light needs repairing for the door ajar it could mean that the censor in the door isn't reading properly. It could also be a short in the dash wiring.
