Question about 2008 Honda GL 1800 Gold wing Deluxe
The brake light switch should be mounted to the back side of the rear brake pedal housing. My best guess is that the brake switch is heating up when the engine heats up, and is sticking. Clean the exposed part of the shaft of the brake switch plunger and give it a squirt of WD-40, Teflon, or other lubricant where it goes into the housing. Work it manually a few times to distribute the lubricant. If that doesn't do it, take the switch off and disassemble it carefully. Assuming the little spring and contactor don't go flying off and get lost, you should be able to clean and reassemble the switch. Seeing as how I have big fat fingers, poor close up vision without bifocals, and limited patience, I would suggest just buying a new switch just to save on the aggravation.
