I just recently noticed that my brake light came on, then after a short time it went out. I pulled up on the emer brake handle lightly and the light came on, I released the handle and the light went out. I noticed then that on a fast accleration the light came on and then went back out after a few momenets. I also noticed that the light came on sometimes with sharp turns. I have checked the resivoir and it is at the full line. I'm sure this light controls more than just the emer. brake. Can anyone help me out on this? Thank you

Have you changed many Brake Master Res. Cap and Float? I have a light that comes on when I pull out and stays on for some time then goes out. If the light is on and I stop hard the light goes out then comes back on when I pull out. I think its the cap and float? I had a previous post and I was told that it is the cap and float as long as the level is where it should be. Is this cap and float an easy item to change? Anything I need to look out for?

This may, or may not be causing the brake light. Take the cap off the master cylinder. If the rubber boot on the inside the cap is sagging, just push it back up into the cap. It might be as simple as that.

Thank goodness you answered, Elroy. Earl was only here for one day and three posts back in 2005. I doubt if he would have answered.

I signed up for email notifications on this forum & got an email today! Woot!
I'm Becky, have owned 3 Accords in my life, 1) Silver 1982 sedan, my first car when I was 16 (used, was my mom's) 2) 1986 white 2-door hatch back Accord when I was in college. 3) 1991 green EX sedan after college and up until 2 years ago - about 165,000 miles, a fantastic car. Replaced it with a gold 08 EX CRV with nav and feel like I'm riding in a luxury liner...

I hit 80k on my Accord today. Still have the original brakes and the OEM Bridgestones. The warmer weather has given me a couple of tanks that were in the 33-35 mpg range in combined driving. Still have never had a tank below 28 mpg. No major issues at all. I love this car.

Hey, everyone! My name's Chris, and I've been lurking around these forums since 2007 or so and had considered buying a car several times since then (something always stopped me from going through with it), with the Accord always on my list. Now I can finally say that I'm an Accord owner.
I just bought a 2007 Honda Accord EX 4 cylinder model with the Carbon Bronze Pearl Exterior and Ivory interior, and I just love how it looks inside and out. It was a lease return and only had 35,000 miles. It was in pretty good shape but had a couple of scratches that were buffed out. Prior to this, I drove a 1998 Dodge Neon for 6 years that has served me very well (I know, shock!), but I felt I needed an upgrade.
Prior to driving the Accord, I test drove a 2006 Toyota Camry, 2008 Ford Fusion, and 2009 Hyundai Sonata, and I felt the Honda was by far the best overall package. I found its engine to be the smoothest and most refined, the ride very solid- it was firm, well-planted, yet more comfortable than I was expecting, the interior to be the best-looking and highest quality, and the steering offered just enough feel without being heavy. I also drove a 2008 Honda Accord, and while I think it looks better on the outside than the 2007, it was a little too big, and I wanted to buy the last year of a design.

Welcome, Chris. IMHO, the 06-07 Accords are great cars. Carbon Bronze is a nice color too!
