Default brake light staying on.

Last year my brake light would stay on and my computer braking would not
work any more. My mechanic would test everything and tell me that
everything tested fine. He said I would have to replace the computer.
The Honda price for this was astronomical. I went to ebay and bought one
for 40 dollars delivered. It is quite easy to install and I did it
myself. This did not fix the problem.

I live where there is a lot of salt on the roads in Winter. I asked my
mechanic to test the brake sensors. They tested fine on two different
occasions. I was getting frustrated. I wanted those special auto
anti-lock brakes to work because there is snow here all Winter. I told
him to replace the sensors and I would suffer the loss of money if they
did not fix the problem. As I said, the resistance measurement he made
conformed to Honda's specifications perfectly.

My anti-lock braking system has been working now perfectly for a year
and we are going into another Winter where those brakes are very
important to me.

DO NOT TRUST HONDA'S SPECIFICATIONS FOR BRAKE SENSOR OHM READINGS. I
wonder how many Honda 800 dollar computers have been sold because of bad
brake sensors.

Chemical condemnation is a non linear function and is much dependant on the
applied voltage (and the resultant current) much also depends on the make up
and quality of the ohm meter. It is also effected by the moisture content
of the chemical contaminants.

Often the only way to ID the problenm is, as you found out, shot gun
replacement of parts.
