If you have already checked fuses and bulbs, you can do the following:
If you have a multimeter, set it to DC voltage 20 and remove the light bulb. Have someone else press the brake pedal and touch your leads from the multimeter to the contacts (one lead on one, the other on the opposite terminal) and see if you're getting 12-14 volts DC. If you are getting the proper voltage, then the bulb should be replaced with a known working bulb.
If you are getting no power when the brake pedal is depressed, you have a break in the wire somewhere and will need to track it down.
Sometimes, there is a separate fuse for the 3rd brake light - have you checked for that fuse?
It's possible the wire leading to the 3rd brake light has been cut or otherwise damaged - possibly from overloading the trunk and items physically damaging the wire.
Another possibility is a faulty ground for that light assembly. Try to locate a service manual for the car and track down where the ground wire should be and make sure you have a solid connection.

If all else fails, take your car to a qualified technician for a closer look.

Check the prones inside the connector that you plug into the brake light module. You may have to squeeze, wiggle, tilt each one to see which one is not connecting all that good. I know it may sound confusing. I tried to explain the best of I could.

The right brake light sensor is located in the trunk area by the right rear taillight assembly.

I assume you mean the one on the dash. This is an indicator that there is a problem in your braking system. Make sure it's not low on Brake fluid and have the brake system checked or check it yourself. If your going to check it yourself I recommend the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle as a reference.

Hi, my brake lamp stays on after turning ignition on in honda accord 1988 carb despite all brake lamps are working fine no burnt one, I appreciate your help


Majdi, if you mean the brake warning light in the dash is on after starting your car, the light is telling you there is a fault/problem with the braking system. You should not continue to drive if the brake warning light is on, as your brakes could fail. You will have to have a good shop check your brakes and diagnose problem and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

2002 Honda odyssey. High mount stop and passenger side brake lights out. New bulbs installed. Any ideas?


If one side is working, but the other two locations are not, that would indicate a working brake lamp switch, and a likely problem with the wiring or the bulb sockets for these two lamps. Take a simple 12V test lamp and probe the positive side of these lamps while someone is pressing the brake pedal. If the test lamp remains unlit then you have an open in the wiring to the lamps. If the light illuminates but you still have no brake lamps then the ground is likely open. You could test this theory by providing a temporary ground to each lamp and retesting. Bulbs are fairly simple devices - they only require power and ground to work, so you are missing one or the other. If you determine you have an open power or ground to the bulb you will have to trace the wiring back through the harness and repair the break in the wire.

I have a 1991 honda accord the brake lamp light comes on & off yet all of the back lights work properly why does the brake lamp light come on if the lights work properly


You can try to replace all the brake lamp bulbs as sometimes eventhough all bulbs are working but one of them is about to blow and give high resistance. That's why the brake lamp lights up.

Brake Lamp remains on


This light is controlled by the hand brake,brake fluid level and on some models the brake pad wear indicators.
Low brake pads or a broken sensor wire is a common reason for this problem.

91 accord right hand brake light wont work but left hand does what can it be bulbs are ok


Check for continuity and power at the lamps socket. heat can warp the socket or corrosion.
if there is power and ground do a wiggle check with the wires and the bulb to see if the light comes on, even for a second. If nothing then maybe look at fuse, relay,brake switch, or broken wires.

89 Honda Accord brake light and turn signal seem connected


Looks as though you have earthing problems.
I would make sure that the earthing is O.K on flasher and brake.
You would then find your symptom disappear.

Hope that sorts it.

My 91 accord had the same problem. There is an electric lock out solenoid under the shift console cover. Remove a couple screws on shifter cover and you will see it. I just bent the tab that contacts the shifter instead of replacing it. Done deal.
