Q: My brake light will be on if it is very cold in the morning on 2001 Honda Accord

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
When I have to get up at 6 for work my brake light will still be on when I release the e-break. Is there a problem with my breaks or is it just the cold someone help me please!

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.
