Question about 1999 Honda Accord

1 Answer

I have a 1998 Honda Accord that just developed a problem with no brake lights, no back up lights and the rear turn signals don't work, but the headlights and front turn signals do work.

    One of the things that I left out is that the emergency flashers work fine. Why would the brakelight switch stop the turn signals from working, but not the flashers?

First thing to do is check the fuse box and see if all of the fuses are ok and not blown out (use a fuse puller)..If all of the fuses are ok I would next check all of the rear light bulbs...pull them out, one by one, and see if they are black or broken inside the bulb...sometimes when one bulb goes out, they all will go out...If all that is good and well then I would next look at the brake switch (located on the brake pedal) and use a tester light and with the circuit open, touch the tester light to the switch and see if it has any current running through it...If that is ok then you have a short somewhere in your wiring...look for any wires that are cut, frayed, or broken.

I have a 1993 honda accord i just recently lost my brake lights i put in a new brake light switch and all of my brake lights started working except my right brake lights? please help

If you don't have power to the right brake light when the switch is engaged, I would check the turn signal switch. On some models the brake circuit goes thru the turn signal switch. Also be sure and check the ground connection on the bulb socket.

When you press the brake, do your brake lights work? Is this Accord equipped with turn bulbs separate from the brake bulbs? If it uses the same bulb as the brake bulb for turning and brakes, then it is all wired through the turn signal stalk. A faulty stalk will cause the issues you are having, but first verify that the lights do both jobs of the turn and brake. If the bulbs work, then replace the stalk.

Why do my turn signals stop working whenever I pressed the brakes in my 1998 Honda Accord. When the lights are on, I press the brakes and both signal lights illuminate. Wha

Welcome to the wonderful world of automotive electronics. Your wire harness to the rear of the car has wires in it that are rubbing together and powering each other. Normally this happens at the rear so start at the taillight assemblies and unwrap and check wire insulation for breaks, cracks or bare spots. Tape up any that you find. Removing the light sockets from the assembly will give you some extra length to work with. You'll need it. Roll the wires in your fingers as you move along and pay very close attention to any spot where they bend or are clamped or squeezed. Patience is required for sure but it can be veryyyy expensive to pay a shop to do it for you.

1998 honda accord, with the headlights on the tail lights are on but turn signals do not work. if head lights are off turn signals work unless i apply the brake, if i apply the brake the brake lights work...

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.

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.

DRL and High Beam do not work right on Honda Accord EX 1998

Some time back I found some data on a similar website suggesting that the Day Light Running circuit board, just under the steering column, developed cracks in some of the soldered joints. Your high beams should also be affected with loss of day light running lights.
Resoldering repaired the continuity of the circuits. Ours is now working quite reliably. Some of the defective areas developed slight brownish discoloration, that's how I was told to recognise the areas to be resoldered. Hope this will help you solve your problem.
