I had a similar situation with my 2000 Accord. The brake, battery, and door lights all came on and stayed on. I did a little research online and then called my dealer's service department to verify. There are two possibilities; the alternator or the battery. I could be as simple as needing to clean your battery terminal posts. I popped my hood and found a lovely shade of blue-green coating my connection. I cleaned it off and the lights went out. I probably need a new battery soon, but my lights went off!

why do the back lights stay on when the car is off and the brake release is checked on a 1994 Honda accord

Assuming you have the lights turned off, you are seeing the brake lights. They are more than likely on because the brake light switch is defective or out of adjustment.

A bad relay switch could be the culprit if dash lights remain on after engine starts in a Toyota. Cold weather can also cause these lights to stay on after the engine starts.

Under there dash on the clutch pedal, there is a rubber stopper that needs to be replaced. The part can be purchased from Honda for right around 3 or 4 dollars.

What year and model? Under what conditions? The dash lights are designed to stay on in certain models. Saab 900s from about 1987 on will have dash lights come on any time the ignition switch is in the ON position, whether or not the headlight switch is turned to ON.

They're kind of like a pilot light for the engine.

Check your brake fluid, it more then likely is low. That is a good indicator when the light comes on, if its not that... you might want to check your Ebrake cable underneath the car make sure its not hung up.

So what is the problem with my stupid car with the lights on the dashlight problem?

Replace your AT Control Unit (Automatic Transmission Computer)

Could be a bad ignition switch

I had to take mine to the dealer and they removed the entire dash board. Cost me $220. Now my mode, fan and rear fan lights are out. They can stay out.

there should be a button by the steering column that enables you to bypass the motor in the pop up headlights. Try pressing that and see if they go down.

Defective or out of adjustment brake light switch.

A 2000 Honda Accord check engine light will stay on if the ECU is not reset. To reset the light remove the ECU fuse from the engine bay fuse box. Reinsert it after 5 seconds.

Those systems you mentioned will work normally with the engine off, if you are saying that you cannot shut them off at all then the multi function switch for the lights is faulty or damaged.

To force the dash lights to stay bright on a 1984 Corvette, simply turn the dial to its highest setting. The dial can be found to the left of the steering wheel. On some makes, however, the dial is located near the odometer.

Try turning them off. This is done with the dimmer control of the dash lights.
