I had this problem before. I found the wiring harness at the rear light to have a short in the wiring. Certain ways you move the wires would allow it to work intermittently. After changing the harness, no more problems.

I have a 1991 honda accord the brake lamp light comes on & off yet all of the back lights work properly why does the brake lamp light come on if the lights work properly


You can try to replace all the brake lamp bulbs as sometimes eventhough all bulbs are working but one of them is about to blow and give high resistance. That's why the brake lamp lights up.

I have a honda accord LX 1991 and the brak lights don't work, the only light that works is the driver side brake light. also I have all new bulbs in the car.


Sounds like the brake bulb sensor unit is short circuited. It is located inside the rear driver's side, trunk mounted tail light housing. It will have to be replaced or opened and repaired, to eliminate the short circuit.

My middle, and right side brake lights do not work on my 1991 Honda Accord. I have replaced the right side brake light. Does the middle need to work or be replaced in order for the right side to work.


it shouldn't,, But with Honda who knows, normally unless its just a bulb they all either work or not, so if you have the right side out, change the bulb,, if it works the center one is out too, be sure when replacing the bulbs to check them before you put them in, and clean any dark or burn spots in the holder, Ive had numerous times a "new" bulb was no good,

I have the same problem with my 1991 honda accord. The brake light on the driver side works but the passenger side and the back window brake light doesn't. It's not a fuse problem. I've check them all. It...


I assume you have replaced the lamps/globes with new ones, if not this is the first thing to try.
If your car is fitted with a "faulty light" sensor, ( i.e. if a warning light on the dashboard comes on when you apply the brake and a brake light bulb is not working), this may be the problem. Follow the wiring for the rear lights from the light clusters inside the trunk and you may find the wiring harness plugged into an encapsulated unit in the rear somewhere. Test if power is coming out of this unit when brakes are applied. Or, remove the covers on the brake light clusters from inside the car and check the wiring to the rear window brake light. Very often this is connected to the same ground as the drivers side light. However, the parking and tail and reversing lights usually work off the same ground, so this seems unlikely.

1991 honda accord brake light indicator stays on dash


Brake light switch? Its mounted near the top of the brake pedal lever. The lever contacts and holds the switch closed which keeps the lights from turning on when at rest. When you step on the brake, the contact is broken, the switch extends and completes the circuit allowing the brake lights to illuminate.

Brake Lights out on 1991 Honda Accord


After you have checked the fuseand the bulb connection, you may also want to check the brake switch located at top of the brake padel under the dashboard. Once you push the brake padel, the switch will trigger and the brake light will be on. Use simple 12 volt test pen or voltmeter to test the current supply. Enjoy it.

Check the prones inside the connector that you plug into the brake light module. You may have to squeeze, wiggle, tilt each one to see which one is not connecting all that good. I know it may sound confusing. I tried to explain the best of I could.

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.
