Rear Brake Lights
The rear brake lights will not turn off.
Even when the head lights are off & the car is turned off, the rear lights remain on.
Has anyone else had this problem or know how to fix it?
Brake lights or Tail lights?
behind the brake pedal there should be a switch that depresses when the pedal is pushed sometimes they just need adjusting. if adjusting it does not work it may be the switch thats faulty
if its the rear tailights there is a short somewhere in the harness if its the brakelights that stay on then its the brakelight switch thats easy to fix follow the brake petal under the dash and youll see what looks like a buttun that gets pressed when the brake petal is fully up swap out that and your good to go if the cars is automatic youll see 2 switches sometimes in that case youll need to go to the auto parts store to see wich one is the brake light switch
had this problem with a 93 legend. the brake switch was not being depressed because there was a hole on the brake pedal exactly where the switch was supposed to be depressed at. I am not sure as to how that hole got there.. maybe years of use? switch was adjusted too far down? i dont knoe but... i just filled up the hole with a screw and it was fine after that.
Thanks, I'll look for switch/button under the brake pedal tomorrow & see if that's the problem. Thanks again.
well i have an automateit an it is a 1993 honda accoud
After many forum searches, the common thread is the plastic bumper behind the pedal is broken or disintegrated. if you are a contortionist this is an easy job, otherwise it's a pain. make sure you get the correct thickness or this cheap fix will destroy your brakes by putting slight pressure on the pedal. Too thick by 2mm caused my brakes to vibrate so bad I had to pullover on I95, scary. Get the OEM or find the proper one and start aiming for the hole and push the tab all the way in. you tube has lots of videos
I had this problem last year. The Honda dealership wanted a large sum of money to replace the brake pedal. I took it home and cut a small rectangular piece of aluminum can and fitted it into the back of the brake pedal. It was the same thickness as the original plastic bumper.
