It is most likely a blown fuse. If you have the owner's manual, it will tell you where the box is located (usually in the engine compartment). If you do not have a manual, look for the fuse box/ relay center either under the dash or in the engine compartment. There will be a diagram on the inside cover telling which fuse is for the tail lights/ brake lights. Pull that fuse straight out of it's socket, and replace it with an appropriately rated fuse (from any auto parts store).

Brake lights dont work Bulbs are good and brake light switch is good


The power flow for the brake lights goes like this: Fuse ->Brake switch -> Turn signal switch -> Rear lights. The only difference is, if you have a 3rd brake light in your rear window, that gets its power directly from the brake switch. It does not go thru the signal switch first. So, if you are having a brake light problem, and your fuses are good, check the 3rd light in the rear window, if it lights up (assuming the bulbs are good, no one ever changes them), then the problem is most likely in the turn signal switch, hope this helps!

Rear brakelights dont come on fuses and bulbs are fine rear window brake light works


If the high level brake light works, then the brake light circuit is fully functional.

Brake light bulbs may LOOK fine, but can still have failed. Often folks don't notice that one bulb has failed until the second one has blown; it's then easy to incorrectly assume that the fault is more complex.

Try replacing the brake light bulbs: if that doesn't work then please report back for additional options.

Brake light bulb was changed, now brake light is on


Most likely the incorrect bulb was installed or a faulty bulb, causing an electrical cross over. Replace the bulb, and check socket.

Hi,

On your brakelight concern, a few basic ideas:
  • a blown fuse indicates a short somewhere;
  • brakelights are activated by the switch coupled to the brake pedal;
  • the brakelight bulb is integrated with the rear parklights.
Based on the above, some actions that you could take/explore:
  • check the wiring of the foot/pedal switch, might be caught in between the spring coils;
  • check the bulb sockets. look/clean/remove corrosion, rust, twisted wires, frayed ends;
  • check harness going to rear.
On the ticking sound:
  • probably a relay;
  • check for loose ground or corroded/rusted ground points;
  • double check the ground connection of the stereo;
  • double check the battery's - terminal connection to engine and to chassis body;
  • check/clean relay sockets normally located with the main fuses.
  • in some worst case scenario and considering the age of the vehicle, a rehabilitation of the wiring system might be in order.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Brake lights do not work (3rd brakelight does) changed bulbs checked fuse


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.
