    Default 1993 Honda Accord LX Automatic - Brake pedal switch

    Hi,

    I have the following problems:

    1. None of the 3 stop lights at the back comes on when I step on the
    brakes.
    2. The shift gear is locked in Park and cannot come out. I have to
    insert the ignition key into "Shift Key Release" everytime to shift
    out of Park.
    3. When step on the brake pedal, there is no click sound that unlocks
    the gear shifter.
    4. Now and then (not always), the D4 light on the dash blinks. If I
    drive the car with D4 light blinking, the car drives incredibly slow.

    All fuses are fine.

    After reading news groups, I thought the first 3 symptoms might be due
    to a bad brake pedal switch. I cannot seem to locate the switch to
    see if it works fine.

    I am not sure about problem 4.

    I would greatly appreciate any leads on how I can check the brake
    pedal switch and address problem 4.

    Thanks in advance,
    Murali Varadachari

    The brake pedal switch is literally on the brake pedal. Look for a button
    mounted so that it is pressed in by the brake pedal bar when the pedal is up
    and opens when the pedal is pushed. Either the switch has come loose and
    not longer engages the pedal, or the return spring on your pedal is fatigued
    and the pedal never actually comes all the way back up any more.

    Hondas use the D4 light to signal automatic transmission problems. When the
    light is on, the transmission is going into a fail-safe mode, most likely
    locked into 2nd gear. On some of them there is a way to make the D4 light
    flash out a trouble code. I don't know if yours is one of them, but it
    probably is.

    Hi,

    I took the car to the dealer who wanted $178 (switch was $64 and labor
    $114). I decided to look in a car in the junkyard. Got the switch
    for $10. It took literally 10 minutes to get it off the junk car and
    put it in my car.

    Regards,
    Murali
