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.

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.

The interior lights and rear lights might go out on a 1995 Honda Accord because the light fuse has blown. Check the fuses under the hood or under the steering wheel to confirm.

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.

yes, as long as the 1992 accord is also an automatic

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.

Are you planning to convert your Accord to RWD? The S2000 has a longitudinal motor. The Accord has a transverse motor. It would not be easy.

The Honda Accord would be faster with air shocks and the engine that runs like a babe. :-)

Check for a loose fuse, check your wiring, check the connections, sounds like something is loose. Also make note as to when it turn off, are pressing the brake? using the turn signal?

That would really depend on what is broken.

Yes, by removing the 4 cylinder and installing a V6. But the cost would be prohibitive. Sell your 2004 Honda 4 cylinder and then buy another 2004 Honda V6 and you will be money and lots of time ahead.

There are a few reasons a 1997 Honda Accord may not start. It is possible that the battery is dead or that it is out of gas. Another possibility is that the starter is worn out.

A 1992 Honda Accord may be a better option than a Hyundai Accent of the same year because Honda Accord vehicles are known for their reliability. A 1992 Hyundai Accent would require more repairs than an Accord of the same age.

Turn signal relay needs to be replaced. If you turn on the hazard (emergency) switch, all the signal lights should come on. This says the lights are okay.
