Brake Light mystery (2000 Honda CRV)
I've got an odd one. Hoping someone one here might have an idea before I take it to the shop.
My wife's car is a 2000 Honda CRV, manual trans. It's got about 85K miles on it. Well last week the weather got a little cool in the mornings here in New Jersey. My wife commented thast her brake light didn't shut off when she released the E brake. Once the car warmed up the light shut off. In evening when she drove home it didn't come on. It seems to be temperature defendant. I drove it this morning, and found the same thing. Light stays on, but shuts off when you actually hit the brake petal. Once the car is warm the light shuts off for good. This afternoon I drove it again, and the light shut off when I released the E brake, just as it should.
Any ideas? My brother in law said maybe an ABS sensor? But that was just a wild guess on his part.
