Check. fuse size correct? See schedule on fuse cover. remove brake light bulbs also third one in back glass. check all sockets and wires for brittle cooked plastic, correct bulbs and repair. Replace fuse. test with no bulbs. does fuse blow? if yes then an issue with direct short between pedal switch and lights. or in switch itself. If No add 1 bulb. Test. Is there any other issue? hazzard/ parking lights Blinkers or backup lights? Find a wiring diagram. Autoparts store or Possibly the Library.Trace circuit diagram. Has car been in accident? Sometimes bad repair job at body shop with wire splices. Good Luck Basic flow is Fuse, Pedal switch, Brake lights. Sometimes brake lights and hazzard lights are connected. ie turn hazzard lights on." BLINK" then press brake do they stop blinking. solid on until pedal is released. dual purpose bulb. May not apply to Honda accord. also note. at pedal push in and check for any loose wires rubbing on pedal under dash. had a clutch pedal short a wire not secured properly. rubbed insulation off wire and eventually shorted.
