HOW TO REPLACE THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH

(1999 Honda Accord)
The brake lights only work intermittently. The automatic transmission can't be shifted out of park except by depressing the shift interlock release on the console. Rapidly and repeatedly pressing the brake pedal occasionally turns on the brake lights and releases the shifter.

You may also get 'rear ended' and you would be held liable with inoperative brake lights and or get a ticket. Either way it is a good idea to fix them ASAP.


Remove the lower dash bezel or panel so you can see the brake switch that rests against the brake pedal lever. Then just disconnect the electrical connector and remove it and replace the switch. We recommend using a factory Brake Switch.
