Default 2001 Accord EX brake light on dash

We have a 2001 Accord EX coupe with 45K miles. Recently the Brake
light on the dash stays lit most of the time while driving. What kind
of problems can this indicate?

Not sure about that model, but it could indicate low brake fluid.

Or your parking brake isn't off all the way or switch is bad.

It means you have to look in the glovebox. Does your insurer know you've
been driving the car with the BRAKE light on?? I guess if the horn
works, it's OK, right?

If you are talking about the "brake light" at the Door and Brake Lamp
Monitor, it's a burned out tail light. Honda brake lamps are special
so buy "Honda" lamps at AutoZone or whatever auto shop you go to.

I keep seeing this -
"Special"? How? If the number is right, the lamp is right. Correct me if I am
wrong.

That's right. Honda tranny fluid is 'special', but a brake lamp is a
brake lamp. Honda doesn't manufacture brake lamps.

Honda installs a relay in series with each Tail Light Bulb so the bulb
sees less than 12 volts. I did not intend to say that you have to buy
a bulb manufactured by Honda. A bulb intended for other than a Honda
would fit, but not have the correct brightness.

For other than a Honda tail light, if I had a burned out bulb I would
look in a box in my garage for a bulb that looked the same and it
would work.

Cheers
Charlie

Not.
Spec'd lamps are standard. A 327 or whatever has a specified voltage, base
design, current rating, and output (candlepower) .
Honda can't change that unless they design their own lamp, with their own specs
(and number). I don't see where they have done that. If you have an example,
please post it.
