As a warning, this is a little difficult and requires some patience. I just had to do with to my 2000 accord, and I'm betting the process is very similar for your '98 model. Before starting, you're going to want to get a Phillips head screw driver and a pair of pointy needle-nose pliers. The first thing you'll want to pop off it the driver's side fuse box cover. Under that you should see two screws towards the bottom that hold on the plastic trim that covers the underside of the steering column. This was held along the top with a few pins that should pop lose with a little effort (not too much force though!). There is one screw holding this piece in on the other side (holding it into the center console) but you wouldn’t need to remove this, you just need to get behind this piece of trim. Behind it, you should see two screws holding in the piece of trim that covers the side of the shifter. Take those out and it'll give you the little bit of wiggle room you're going to need. Lastly, pop off the black trim around the shifter. All you'll need to do is put something flat under it and gently pull up, working your way around it. This should pull off relatively easily. You should see the two wires leading to the bulb that will be located right in the middle on the driver's side. What you'll need to do is wiggle you're hand up under the side of the plastic side trim and grab the bulb. It will take a quarter turn to loosen it. Put the new bulb you have in the socket, wiggle it back in its proper place (don't forget to give it a quarter turn again to lock it in) and you should be set. Make sure you test the bulb before putting everything back together! I’m sure something doesn’t make complete sense in here, so if you need any clarification on anything in here, let me know!

In all probability, the brake switch got stuck in the closed position. One way to test it is by trying to move the shift lever from Park to Neutral without depressing the brake. If you can do this, then the switch is damaged. It is very simple and inexpensive to replace.It is located a few inches above the brake pedal rubber pad.

Try chaecking the tranny fluid to make sure it's at optimal level. After that if it still has issues, Try getting your clutch and gear plates checked. If it's an automatic have your Torque converter checked for poor connection.
