Question about 1994 Acura Legend
The warning intermittently lights up and remain on during trip but not every trip.
I've had all my friends look at all the brake lights for days now and all seem to be functioning properly whether the warning light is on or off.
Most new cars nowadays have Wiring-Check systems, which are themselves a bunch of extra wiring to make sure the wiring to, in this case, your brake lights works. Its somewhat rare, but does happen, the wiring on the Brake Light Function Check system probably has a bad ground, explaining the internittent illumination of the warning light.
Unfortunately repairing it would have to be done by a more than competent and qualified Acura technician, which may be hard to find because a wiring fault of this kind is generally a very hard one to find. Unfortunately some dealerships will probably take the car in, look it over, figure out whats wrong and decide "I'm not doin that" and tell you they can't figure it out.
When this happens, most people just put a piece of electrical tape over the Warning light in the dash so that you can't see it anymore. Because if the Warning Light is on, but the brake lights still work, then there is nothing actually wrong with the brake light system.

On vehicles equipped with antilock brakes (ABS), a second warning light is provided to warn if a problem occurs within the ABS system. The ABS lamp comes on when the ignition is turned on for a bulb check, then goes out after the engine starts. If the ABS warning light remains on or comes on while driving, it indicates a fault has occurred in the ABS system.
What happens next depends on the nature of the fault. On most applications, the ABS system disables itself if the ABS warning light comes on and remains on.
