it is an indicator. You need to check your brake fluid or your bulb.
the 1989 Honda accord lxi has a brake lamp light on the dashboard, if the brake lamp light is on, this means you have a brake/tail light out or disconnected
This issue could mean that the fuse on the indicator light is blown. This could also mean that the brake fluid is low on the vehicle.
just had oil change on saturday. no problems. now brake lamp light on 2000 honda accord ex
On a 1994 Honda Accord, the brake lamp comes on when a tail light is no longer working. The burned-out bulb needs to be replaced. The brake lamp will not come on after the bulb is replaced.
You need a blub or your brake fluid is low.
My friend has an 87 honda. If the brake fluid reservior on the 87 is not completely full the level indicator will energize the brake light. Maybe yours is a similar problem. dg_8
Low brake fluid level or Parking brake not released completely
It means one of your rear brake lights are out. Not the tailights but the brake light(s).
My 1992 Honda Accord Brake Lamp came on several times after I had the Master Cylinder replaced. Turns out the fluid had gotten low. Once I refilled the fluid level, the light stopped coming on.
Check brake fluid level in master cylinder Make sure parking brake is fully released
Normally it means the brake master cylinder is low of fluid. But it can indicate another problem.
It means your alternator is going.. atleast that's what it meant when it happened on my 2000 accord ex.
It's telling you the brakes need attention. Have a trusted garage check it out now!
Check all the brake lights and dont forget the one behind the back window. That should fix the problem.
if it isn't a fuse or lamp problem, check the brake lamp switch on the brake pedal, if you unplug the switch, and jumper the connection, and you have brake lamps, replace the switch...
Normally it means the master cylinder is low of brake fluid which also means your brake pads are worn out or you have a leak.
I took my car to the Honda dealership to have my ignition lock replaced due to a recall, which I thought was the issue. The dealership, however, told me it was due to a faulty brake lamp indicator and charged me $42 for the part and $90 for an hour of labor.
If the brakes are still operating normally, check the tail light bulbs.
Remove the negative battery terminal (-) for about 15 minutes and most codes will reset.
check your brake fluid and if that's ok your brake pads'Answer:If the light says "Brake Lamp", it means you have a tail light bulb that needs to be replaced.
IT USUALLY MEANS LOW BRAKE FLUID. JOSE It means the brake lamp sensor has detected a burned out bulb. This can also happen if you disconnect your high mount brake lamp to connect the circuit to a spoiler mounted brake light without changing the sensor. -- dws
Why are you pumping the brakes? That light means there is a problem with the brake system. Check the fluid level and if it is ok, take it to a professional. It can be many things that need to be done. Air in the system, low fluid level, etc.
Adjustment need to be backed off by the brake pedal!
It illuminates in the run position, and should go out after the engine is started. It would have nothing to do with your brake lights being burnt out.
