With the car running wiggle the ignition switch a little bit and see if the lights come on. The electrical part of the switch goes bad and will give you signs like that. Try to turn it back and forth see if the lights come on while the car is still running. If so then the switch needs to be replaced.

Flashing battery light and brake light


Are you referring to warning lights on the dash board? The flashing battery light may mean you have a charging problem and the flashing brake light may mean you need break fluid or have an other brake issue. Take it to a service station or the dealer. Or read the owners manual.

I would check battery voltage with a meter when the lights are flashing to check alternator output. Might be a ground problem.

I have an 01 honda accord and the battery light the doorlight and brake light are all flashing what can cause that


I have a 1998 Honda Accord 4cyl vtec that is doing the same thing but only when its cold. Once the car warms up the lights stop flashing. When this does happen the wipes are slow, light the alternator isn't charging properly. This isn't a service light issue. I know how to reset this light. Lights on the dash that flash are the battery light, the door open indicator lights on the dash and the brake light - all at the same time. I had the battery replaced since mine was two years old but this didn't fix it.

Dash and interior lights flash and truck will not start. Lights continue to flash even after the key is removed. I have to disconnect the battery to stop the lights from flashing. There are no sounds when...


your battery is bad. Happened to me a month ago. I checked the alternator, it was fine. I put a new battery in ,and has been trouble free. I had no warning, other than it was the factory battery and it was5 years old.

Park lights and dash lights won't stop flashing


There is a small black box under dash by steering column that has a little red button on it. Push that button and it will reset the alarm. Whenever the power is removed from the system it will trigger that alarm and flash your lights. Easy quick fix. Box is about 4" x4" and just to the left of the column. Good luck and have a great day.
