The 2005 Honda Accord has two dome lights (driver's side and passenger's side) that you can push to turn on / off and which also come on when you open the door, like any other dome light. However, since these are ''push to turn on'' they are not light most other dome lights where you simply pop the cover off to change. What I would like to know is how to remove the cover/pushbuttons to get to the actual bulb and change it?

I just replaced both low beam headlight bulbs on my 2005 Honda Accord. After reading the owner's manual and trying to remove the wheel well inserts (and breaking a couple of those clips in the process), I gave up on that approach and was able to change the passenger side and driver side low beam bulbs from the engine compartment under the hood. On the passenger side, fit your arm between the front of the car and the hose that is above the headlight. You should be able to reach the bulb, disconnect the electrical connection, turn the bulb 45 degrees counterclockwise to remove it, insert the new bulb turning it 45 degrees clockwise to secure it in the hole (be careful not to touch the bulb), and reconnect the electrical connection. I loosened the 3 screws that secure the bulb to make it easier to put in the new one, but that probably isn't necessary. My hand was scraped a bit doing this, but it was not too bad. On the driver side, remove the battery hold-down clamp (there is no need to disconnect the battery connections). Reach into the fender (shine a light there so you can see the bulb connection) and you should be able to reach the bulb and replace it similarly to the other bulb. You may have to move the battery slightly to get your arm in there. Replace the battery hold down clamp when you're done. I accidentally dropped the old bulb in the wheel well, but other than that it went pretty smoothly. Good luck.
I assume you are talking about a front bulb. If not, leave a comment and I will tell you about the rear bulb. If you are changing the bulb on the driver’s side, start the engine, turn the steering wheel all the way to the right, and turn off the engine. If you are changing the bulb on the passenger’s side, turn the steering wheel to the left. Use a flat-tipped screwdriver to remove the holding clip from the inner fender, and pull the inner fender cover back. Remove the socket from the headlight assembly by turning it one-quarter turn counterclockwise. Remove the bulb from the socket by pushing it in and turning the bulb counterclockwise until it unlocks. Insert the socket back into the headlight assembly. Turn it clockwise to lock it in place. Test the lights to make sure the new bulb is working. Put the inner fender cover in place. Install the holding clip. Lock it in place by pushing on the center. Hope this helps you.
Problem could be the Brake Light Control Module. That's about the only other thing other than a bad wire somewhere if the bulbs and fuses are good. 91 Accord has 2. One on each side in the smaller of the 2 rear tail light lenses. In order to change the module you have to remove the smaller of the rear tail lights. Drivers side is 5 pin. Passenger side is 6 pin.
