Best Answer

The housing may have a crack letting water or moisture in, or just take the bulb out and take a small screwdriver and scratch the contacts in the plug to clean the corrosion off do this with the lights off or you will blow a fuse, then plug the bulb back in and try it again, if the housing is cracked you may have to purchase a new one or just take some clear silicone, which you can purchase at your automotive store and seal all the cracks, then reinstall the parts and try again.

Where is the brake light fuse for 92 Honda accord?

Under the hood in the fuse box next to the passenger hood hinge. It is #42 and labeled "Stop & Horn", NOT BRAKE! It is a 20 amp fuse. Before looking for this fuse, test your horn. If it beeps then the fuse is NOT blown! If the fuse is good and the brake lights still don't go on, test the brake light switch. If the switch is bad it will also keep you from going out of park and into gear!

IS it the BRAKE LIGHT or the Parking Brake Light? If it is the BRAKE LIGHT, then your pedal must be going down far enough to hit a sensor that sets off the brake light to tell you your brakes need serviced. Normally this means you are low on brake fluid. If you are low on brake fluid FIND OUT WHY! You may have excessive brake pad wear, or a leaking brake cylinder, or your master cylinder may be going out. If you keep pumping the brakes and then stand on it hard, feel for the pedal to eventually go soft, if it does, then normally the seals in the master cylinder are going out. If you pump the brakes and the pedal never gets hard, then you have a serious brake fluid leak. If the Parkign Brake light stays on, then your parking brake is not fully releasing, at least where the contacts are to remind you it is on. This can be adjusted.
