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

2005 toyota camry indicator lamp came on while driving. What does this mean and would it be expensive to fix.


What indicator lamp? There are several. ABS, TRACTION CONTROL, BRAKE LIGHT, AIRBAG LIGHT, SEAT BELT LIGHT, MAINTENANCE LIGHT, CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, OIL LIGHT, ETC.

most of these will store codes when they turn on. All of those except the check engine light will require a high end scan tool to retrieve the codes. The check engine light codes can be retrieved by an OBDII code reader. You can purchase them for under $100 or you can swing buy your local parts store. Often they will pull codes for free.

Once you know the codes you'll have a better idea of what needs to be done.

Why does the ignition light on my 2001 jeep Cherokee 3.7 auto stay on


Which ignition light? There are a number of warning lights on the instrument panel.
It could be the charge indicator, which could mean a bad alternator. Does the battery run down? Check voltage on the battery. If more than 13.8 volts while the engine is running, alternator is OK. Less than that, overhaul the alternator.
It could be the MIL (maintenance Indicator lamp / engine check light) which means the car is due for a service. The light can be turned off by a mechanic, or you could get a DTC reader on ebay and turn it off yourself if you're happy the service is up to date.
It could be the brake indicator light, which could mean either the handbrake is not fully released, or the brake fluid level is low, or the brake pads are worn down. Just some possibilities, give more information.

Hi there. my problem is every time i step on the brake an orange light on the dash appears. the symbol that keeps illuminating is a car with what looks like the rear lights on at the rear. can anybody...


Yes. The reason it looks like the lights on the rear of the car and the reason it comes on every time you are hitting your brakes, is because your lamp-out module is trying to tell you that you have a brake lamp that is not working. This is normal function if you ave a burned out bulb or a broken wire in your brake lamps. It does not set any codes, so there is nothing to "reset". Just fix the brake lamp and the warning lamp will go away.

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.

1999 jeep grand cherokee - brake lights and turn signals working but Right tail light out with all other lights on--HELP??? My 1999 Grand Cherokee has no parking lights in the rear. The brake lights work...


I have taken my car to many shops to solve this problem. Long story short your tail light has a bad circut and entire lamp must be replaced. (Lamp cost approximate $130.00)

Brake lamp is on


when the brake light is on it usualy means one of two things. First one is parking brake is on, second is low on brake fluid. More then likely time to change brake pads or could be leak in the system.

Stop lamp and cyclops light


If by the "cyclops light" you mean the third brake light, I went to auto zone and purchased 6 ea. part number 858352 instrument panel connectors and added number 194 bulbs to them. All you have to do is pull (gently) on the cover and it will come off. It snaps in place. Twist the bulbs 1/4 turn ccw to remove, insert new assembly and voila, you're in business. The other brake lights are behind the carpet in the trunk. Be sure to remove the correct bulb or you will replace the turn/marker lamp and still have a brake light out. Good Luck.
