Honda Accord Brake Light On Due to Faulty Master Cylinder Resevoir Filter

(14 reports)

A faulty brake master cylinder reservoir filter can cause the brake system indicator to illuminate after a cold start and then go off. Replacement of the reservoir filter will commonly fix this problem.

This happened last winter and is happening again this winter. I don't believe it is a real problem but my state inspection is due and I will certianly fail with the brake light active. -
haven't fixed the problem. light goes on and off but brakes are actually fine -
Brake indicator comes on every cold morning. Letting the car warm up turns the indicator off. It's been to several mechanics and yes it can be fixed, but if the light doesn't bother you (I personally couldn't care less) then as the mechanics said it doesn't really effect anything. My cars up to 125,000 no issues other than routine maintenance. If a sensor is all I have to worry about I call that solid construction. -
happens more in the cold weather. -
