Default Problems with 2002 Honda brake light staying on?

I have a 2002 Honda Accord LX. The brake light on the dash won't go off. I pull up & release the brake, jiggle it, whatever, but it stays on. Any help will be appreciated, because as we all know the dealership will probably charge me a couple of hundred.

go to a honda dealer and buy a new master cylinder cap and strainer its a very common problem that light comes on both with the parking brake and with low fluid since the cap is defective it thinks theres low fluid and turns the light on

check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder. if it is good then check the wires coming from the master cylinder cap, maybe they are unplugged. if all is good then the cap is bad.if the fluid is low have your brake system checked.

Um, usually when the brake light stays on that means that you brakes are low, and need to be replaced.
