Awhile back, after taking off my tailights from my 4th gen and putting them back on, the "brakelight" warning light came on...all the connections in the rear are okay and the brake lights, signals, and reverse all work perfectly fine...the warning light indicator is still on...I've tried many times to reset the computer and such, but do not know how to get rid of the warning indicator...Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks

The only brakelight warning I know of is on the dash and that has to do with the e-brake or parking brake. If you take the center consol out you'll see a little switch attach to the lever. See if that is stuck down r something.

no,, he is talking about the BRAKE light warning.. meaning that one of the brake lights are messed... i have a 93, and likewise, i have the same problem, i have noticed its from the 3rd brake light that is causeing the problem,,, as soon as i get crazy i am going into the dash to get rid of that light, its pi--ing me off.

PS... when do i get to join the 935's???

Wow, that's strange. I know which light you're talking about (4th gen right?) and when my taillight blew, it came on. I replaced it and it works fine now. The warning light cut off.

Sorry I didn't really help.

The only time I've seen this on ANY honda it's been attached to the e-brake and the fluid level- not the lights. If everything is connected and works, I'd almost guarantee you're low on fluid.

Hmmm...its actually the warning light for the tailights...not the lights for the e-brake or regular brakes... I still can't figure this thing out...I was thinking maybe some sensors were tripping out, but all my tailights and brakelights work fine.

I'll have to check my 4g manual, but this should be a current sense circuit. There shouldn't be a "sensor" in the traditional sense, just wires coming back from the socket to the fusebox and/or dash. If you've double checked your connections... the only other suggestion would be to check all your fuses and make sure the source voltage for the sense circuits or the lamp itself are all good.

Yeah, the brake fluid level is okay... I think it just has to do something with the tailights...not sure what though...
