    If the light stays on in the morning and goes off after you drive it for awhile it's usually a bad brake master cylinder cap. The dealer is the only place that you can buy the cap separate from a complete master cylinder. Common problem on this generation of Accord, but make SURE your master cylinder is FULL of brake fluid first, if it is not, I would have the brakes inspected, if it is, replace the cap. Hope that helps.
