1992 Honda Accord LX Brake Light Switch Repair

Is this repair simple enough for a woman to do? Where might I find a picture of the part? I tried to replace the right rear brake light bulb. The bulb was faulty and shorted out all of my brake lights (left,rear center-in-window, and right rear brake lights). The tail lights, head lights, back-up lights, signals, radio, interior lights, etc still all work just fine.

    My problem is the same with the exception that it is a 1990 Honda Accord. Also, I must add that I replaced the brake switch at the pedal. It still does not work! The electrical diagram says it's the #26 fuse, where's that?

    It seems I have an electrical issue with the back R-brake and rear view window brake light. I have changed the bulbs. The R- light as Two positions it turns on when I (1)turn on the lights on but not when (2)I press the brakes down nor does the brake light in the back window turn on. Question I dont know the wiring from the brake pedal to those lights where should I look or start looking?

Of course you can make this repair! I'm wondering about the faulty bulb that shorted out all the brake lights...not sure if that's what happened. Your brake light switch is located on the brake pedal, up above where your foot goes. It has a plug in connector which you unplug, then loosen the locknut where it attaches to the pedal.Put in the new switch, lock nut 1st, then plug it in. Note that the locknut is the adjustment point that determines when your brake lights go on. Adjust the locknut so that the brake lights go on when the pedal is depressed within 1/2 an inch (13mm)of pushing down on it. If the switch is adjusted without enough play (say 1/8 inch or less), brake lights may flicker on and off when you go over a bump.If over 1/2 inch, brake lights might go on only if great force on pedal is used (or not at all, yikes!).For good diagrams of parts check out South Bay Honda (hondapartscheap)web site. You enter the year, model, engine, and you can scroll thru tons of parts. If you have any more questions, do not hesitate to post it for me. countrycurt0

Hi....
if you replaced the light bulb . and the light bulb went on short.
The more possible is that the FUSE went BLOWOUT too.
Try to locate the STOP LIGHT fuse. on the Engine compartment
at left side. You will see the FUSE BLOCK. The fuse only have the letters. STOP.. and normally is 15amp.

NOTE.. ANY WOMEN can do this. I hop this help on your problem. Thank you for use fixya....

Car brake lights won t turn off when car is shut down 1996 Honda Odyssey


It should be your brake light switch. There is a little plate welded to the arm of the pedal that has a hole with a rubber stopper. The rubber stopper is most likely missing, or damaged. You should be able to take a flashlight and see the plate and the switch. If the hole is plugged up, you will need the brake light switch, if not, replace the plug.

Car brake lights won t turn off when car is shut down Honda accord lx 1992


Sounds like just a simple break light switch ajustment, the switch works off the break peddle arm, its not letting the plunger on the switch to release all the way out so break lights go off insted they stay on. If thats not the case than a new switch is in order.
