98 Accord EX V6 Coupe Auto Passenger Light Flickers Once When I Press Brake Pedal

25

Asked by Jan 10, 2016 at 01:39 PM about the 1998 Honda Accord EX V6 Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Recently replaced the brake switch located on the pedal. Son can't
remember if it was doing this before the replacement or not. When you first
depress the brake pedal, the passenger light only flickers off for a split
second. Any idea if it's a bad ground somewhere or the battery or
alternator? There is also some dimming of all lights when his radio is on. It's
aftermarket w/ amp. Grounded to the body on the raised bar accessible
when you fold rear seats down. Recommend good repair book for his car?

Sounds like a bad ground or a crossed hot line someplace.

Just realized what you siad about the after market radio/amp. I would bet dollars to donuts that your problem is in the radio wiring if it was done with splices instead of a factory harness adapter.
