Best Answer

it would most likely be a bad or maladjusted stop light switch located on the brake pedal assembly

There is rubber plug that is attached to the arm of the brake pedal and presses against the brake light switch. When the brake pedal is depressed the plug no longer presses against the switch. this causes the brake lights to come on. If this rubber plug is broken or missing the brake lights will stay on all the time.

I fixed mine by duct taping a piece of plastic over the hole in the brake pedal arm where the plug goes.

The website listed below, under Related Links, is a blog post describing how to do it. Or you could go to a Honda parts dept and buy the correct part for a measly $2.

The license plate light fuse. It's a 10A fuse if I remember correctly. Sounds crazy, but I had no running lights and no lights other than warning lights on my instrument panel and it took me forever to figure it out. Apparently that whole circuit runs off of that one fuse. I have a 2000 Honda Accord, but I would assume it would be the same for a 1992.
