Question about 1993 Honda Accord

Brake Lamp remains on

I have a 93 Accord with 152K miles. The brake lamp in the dashboard came on even though all of the brake lights work fine. After that the brake lamp and all of the door lamps came on. I've taken it to the shop and paid to have them trace the electrical. They normally do not work on Honda's. At first they said it had a short and replaced a wire. I've taken it back twice. The brake lamp is still lit when I start the car and it remains on. When I restart the car, the light goes off. I've had the car since new and have maintained it. Any ideas? I have a 93 Honda Accord with the same problem i check all the fuses, light bulbs and replaced most even though they were working. I dont know what the problem could be i read several solutions. One being that if the car is low in brake fluid could cause it, also i was told ther was a fuse under the stearing colum, but i never found anything.

    there are 3 different brake lights one just says BRAKE another ABS and the last (P). please clarify which 1 is on

    Make sure that the brake lamp is not telling you that the brake pads need replacing or that brake fluid level is low.There is a difference in the brake indicator light and the lights out indicator

This light is controlled by the hand brake,brake fluid level and on some models the brake pad wear indicators.
Low brake pads or a broken sensor wire is a common reason for this problem.

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

I have a 1991 honda accord the brake lamp light comes on & off yet all of the back lights work properly why does the brake lamp light come on if the lights work properly

You can try to replace all the brake lamp bulbs as sometimes eventhough all bulbs are working but one of them is about to blow and give high resistance. That's why the brake lamp lights up.

Hi I have a warning light that is showing on my dashboard. it is a retangle box with 3 squiggly lines going up on top of the box. can you tell me what it is? it is a us wagon accord. And the words brake...

This warning lamp is an indicator to show that your exhaust temperature is getting hot, but if it is staying on even when the engine is cold then you have a faulty sensor which will need to be replaced. The brake lamp light is telling you there is a blown light bulb in one of your brake lights, so get someone to stand on the brake pedal with the ignition on and check that they are all working correctly.
Let me know if you need more information.

Brake lamp light came on dashboard - ?? does that mean my taillight is out?

Usaly the Red brake lamp means your brake system needs service, It will set when emergency brake is moved even the slightest, Or if the brake fluid level is to low. If it is low? Do not top it off, Inspect for leaks, And pad/shoe wear. if all is well then the mastercylender is bypassing and needs replaced

89 Honda Accord brake light and turn signal seem connected

Looks as though you have earthing problems.
I would make sure that the earthing is O.K on flasher and brake.
You would then find your symptom disappear.

Hope that sorts it.
