Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 96 Honda Accord and the brake lights remain on, even after the lights and the car have been turned off. Me and my dad replaced the brake switch and they still remain on. Any ideas on this?

The problem could be in the turn signal switch. On most vehicles power for the outboard brake lights passes through the turn signal switch. I'd suggest checking there. Especially if the third brake light works normally. Power for the third brake light goes directly from the brake light switch to the third brake light. HTH. -Jim

I have the same problem I replace the switch and it working fine now . You need to adjust the switch until the light turn off , also check for a plastic stopper that part it the one to press the switch on and off
