It depends which indicator is on have you checked to see if you have a brake light bulb out even the one in the rear view window, if equiped or if your talking about the one that indicates you are low on brake fluid.

    as your brake pads wear down the caliper piston is extended out further holding more fluid. If your brake fluid is low I suggest having your brake pads checked before topping it off also check for leaks at master cylinder,calipers,wheel cyl. and lines and hoses.

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

Brake lamp light is on, also battery light is lit

The brake lamp light simply means one of your brake lights is burned out and the battery light means your alternator is not producing the proper voltage and/or amps to correctly charge the battery.

Brake lamp comes on as soon I push the brake pedal

If you mean that the brake warning lamp on the dash board comes on when you press the brake, then its because the brake fluid level is low and/or the brake pads are worn down to the limit.
If you mean that the brake lamps at the rear of the vehicle comes on when you press the brake, then thats how it should work, to let other road users know you are stopping. Hope that helps
