Brake light stays on, even though the hand brake is off(down). It goes off once the car has warmed up.
brake light on upon morning start then off after several minutes. auto shop ruled out everything else.
Brake light comes on with cold or initial start. This car is very well cared for and maintained . I have an appt. with the Beaverton Honda dealership today
