    there is a switch at the end of the pedal. It either went bad, or it just needs to be adjusted.

    theres suppose to be a plastic grommet that goes on the brake pedal. More than likely it fell out, happens alot. If its still there then you may either need to replace or adjust your brake switch

    Heres the breakdown for a stick and an auto the part is number 7 for both the 5 speed and for the auto

    the same thing happened to me and i ended up needing a new battery from it dying constantly. Follow the brake pedal up the metal bar that holds it. A plastic grommet was missing I replaced mine with a plastic piece meant to hold interior pieces on and some silicon.

    When I had this issue I went to the hardware store and they had rubber stops in the hardware section that were the exact same shape and size as the hard plastic one that broke off.

    Haha seems like a common issue. I took my acccord to two shops before they found the issue. They were going through wiring diagrams and testing voltages and everything all to find out it was just a tiny plastic bushing missing.
