I have a 1995 accord EX and just yesterday the BRAKE dash light started comming on and off, then after about an hour of driving it came on and stayed on. After another short time driving, my ABS dash light came on. Currently, both lights are on, any advice on what could be wrong? (obviously could be brakes, but anything specific?)
Re: 95 Accord, BRAKE and ABS dash lights on, why? (ThumperAC)
The brake lamp is the one for the handbrake? If so, it's also connected to a float switch in the MC reservoir, so check whether your brake fluid is low. If not that, check the little switch down at the handbrake lever. Sometimes the bracket gets bent or loose & it doesn't press the switch even when the handbrake lever is down.
With that light on, your ABS system thinks you're driving around with the handbrake set, so it throws it's own error. Search for how to read ABS error codes, 'cause it just might be somthing completely unrelated.

basically, you'll have to lift the car on jacks, remove the wheels & do a visual... can o brakeclean is optional.
rear drum setup may require a manual...since you'll have to remove the drums to inspect the wheel cylinders.
I heard that if u goto autozone.com, there's a
few online repair manuals for some model cars...
+ i saw a couple of links to FactoryServiceManual quality pdf documents online floating around...
