Question about 2001 Honda Odyssey
Hi, first check the stop light fuse. If that is good, the problem is usually the brake switch above the pedal, but sometimes it is the relay. Check the switch first by pulling the connector off the switch and connecting the terminals inside the connector using a large paper clip. If that turns the lights on, replace the switch. If shorting the brake switch connector does not turn the lights on, reconnect the switch and try swapping the stop light relay with another similar relay, such as the horn or A/C relay.
Note: if you have cruise control, the brake switch connector will have 4 terminals. In this case, try connecting every combination of 2 terminals at a time to see if the lights will come on.
The fuse and relay are probably in one or the other boxes under the hood. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

you need to replace the turn signal switch, the contacts for the brakes and signals are close to each other and have most likely shorted together.

Hi, are the tail lights and the brake lights in the same light unit?
If so, there is a possibility the bulbs are in the wrong way. If it is a stop/tail bulb then there are two locating pegs on the side of the metal part. If you look, one is higher than the other which has to locate into the correct slot in the holder.
Another possibility is the bulb is wrong, there are double and single contacts. Check the contact on the base of the bulb is the same as the contacts in the holder.

if u checked all the fuse's both in the cab and under hood and the wiring harness at rear of truck for any damage, I suspect the turn signal switch is defective.

likely not, but change /check anyhow....If problem persists, likely you will need to change the module that controls directionals (usually under dash to the right of steering column)
