Question about 1991 Honda Accord

1 Answer

My brake lights on my 91 Honda accord will not work. Blinkers, headlights, running lights, and back up lights all Work, but the brake lights don't. Ive changed the fuse, relay, bulbs, and switch and they still don't work. Could this be a wiring problem? I just bought the car, and no one can figure this out!! -Stressed!

No one? any ASE mech can, for sure, and blindfolded.
the reason you can;t is because you dont have a $20 voltmeter.
btw 2 , some cars have hacking to this circuit, trailers attached?
collision damage.
and yes, wires to fail, not just rare at all.

lets pay a game, you go to walfart buy DMM
and go home, and set it to 20vdc range.
and measure voltage to the brake switch, its 12v, may need key on to do that.
then step on brake, the output of the switch goes to;;;
examples. input to switch 12v brake on, all the time. braking or not.
step on brake reads..
1: 0v, switch bad, or gross short close by.
2: 1 to 8v> reads too low, short in harness or 1 lamp shorted.
3: 12v, (battery is at 12.5 ) normal wire drop is 0.5v on all cars.
if 12v here, then wires are cut, to the lamps or all lamps are burned open. (not in yourcase, but to be accurate)
now at this moment you know what is bad.
if the input to the switch is not 12v that means you blew the fuse again,

the volt meter will not lie to you, and will show you the drop voltages.
a normal car will have 12v to each lamp. if not there is DROP.
called voltage drop.
do the tests, post the voltages and we can find it fast.

also skipping looking at both rear under finders for hacks is bad.
look, and behind the Tail lamp assemblies for hacks, or collision damage.

Check the prones inside the connector that you plug into the brake light module. You may have to squeeze, wiggle, tilt each one to see which one is not connecting all that good. I know it may sound confusing. I tried to explain the best of I could.

SOURCE: 1996 Honda Accord Problem

I cannot get my air conditioner clutch on my 1996 Honda Accord EX to engage. I've checked the fuse and relay. The fuse is good but the power is not going to the relay. If I can find the power that comes to the relay, I can fix it. I need to know what activitate the relay and the power that the relay push to the clutch. I need to know where they come from.

I've been looking for a circuitry that shows it and a drawing that shows the air conditioning fan. Please help.

After you have checked the fuseand the bulb connection, you may also want to check the brake switch located at top of the brake padel under the dashboard. Once you push the brake padel, the switch will trigger and the brake light will be on. Use simple 12 volt test pen or voltmeter to test the current supply. Enjoy it.

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.

The small dot is probably for park lights, the big dot for the headlights. For low beams, pull the switch lever towards you, just a light pull, you should hear a click.

Brake lights dont light up. Running lights and blinkers work. Just no brakelights.


Check the brake light fuse. It's separate from the running light fuse and blinker fuse.

It sounds as if you have a bad earth to either one or both of your rear light clusters. If it only happens when you indicate in one direction then that is the offending side.

Only headlights work, 91 4dr EX


ok supaxang, could this solution be as simple as replace the 2 rear bulbs? The brake light and tail light (parking light) are the same bulb, 2 filaments, one for brakes, one for tail lights. If the the tail light filament burns out, the brake light will continue to work ok. It is quite possible that both tail lights burned out, and the brake light filaments are good and still working. Replace w/ bulb #2057. Let me know if this fixes it, if not, I'll keep working on it.

Turn Signals/blinkers


Did you double-check to be sure the fuses are intact and not blown? If they are OK, it could be a turn signal relay or the switch itself (I have firsthand experience with the switch failing with respect to headlight operation, so there's no reason to believe that it couldn't fail for turn signal operation as well).

If you find that it's the switch, reply here and I can walk you through its replacement - it's about a five minute job.
