there are 3 electric systems sold on this car.
one 1 has simple brake lamp switch, and the export is very complex.
ive not a clue what country you reside (or car was sold new)
so cant guess. or advice, beyond a fuse check.
but on 2 of the 3, cars
the wt/tan wire at the brake switch.
if 0v and the fuse is good, #2
then the switch is bad or maladjusted.
if wt/tan wire is 12v brake appled
then the wire is cut to the rear of car... lamps.(harness)
this is common with trailer wiring hacks (uhaul hacks)

These are directions from Wiki plus my own recent experience. Open the trunk and look in the left or right corner closest to the rear of the car. You will see a 4x4 3/4 (approximate) plastic cover, pull firmly to remove the plastic piece (if covered) from the backside of the taillight. Pay attention to how it comes out too because you will have to match up the ends to put the piece back in correctly. My breaklight was the top lightbulb but you can locate the burned out bulb by pressing your breaklights (I used a stick to wedge the pedal). When you find the bulb that is burned out, twist the bulb by grabbing it at the plastic end (I had a little tab on mine to push in before I turned the bulb) and turn it counter-clockwise then pull it straight out of the plastic housing and replace it with a brand new light bulb.
Hope it goes as smoothly for you as it did for me!!

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.

Removal & Installation
Posted on Jul 13, 2009
SOURCE: Honda Accord Map Light bulb
the cover is removed straight down, slowly working it with a thin tool or butter knife. WD40 to front and rear edge (there's nothing medial or lateral). The cover has 2 Y clips on each side, one about half way, and one that clips straight off of the hinge post. There are no "tabs". It will eventually unclip straight down. Then can replace with a DE3175 LED bulb (V-LEDs.com)

I will assume you know there is a button on the dash to turn the TCS on and off. Make sure that button has not been pushed. The brake light can be on due to worn brake pads or low fluid level. If the TCS is not turned off then I suggest you take the car to a trusted mechanic or to your local Honda dealer and have it looked at. It takes skill, knowledge, and the proper tools to diagnose this type problem. It can be many things including a sensor, and you can spend lots of money guessing. Spend the money to have it repaired by someone who knows what they are doing. You will be money ahead and have it done right the first time.

Testimonial: "I went to a mechanic who told me it would cost $1,000.00 to replace the computer sensor. Or replace the brake fluid cap.!?!"
