WARNING LIGHTS

1998 Honda Accord

Electrical problem
1998 Honda Accord 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 73400 miles

The charging system, brake system and brake light warning lights all illuminate at the same time but they flicker on and off randomly. The battery has held a 12.5 - 13 volt charge for a week after several trips of approx. 30 minutes. The brake fluid level is okay. The brakes operate normaly with excellent braking action. The brake lights continue to operate normally.
Additionally, I randomly have difficulty in getting the shifter from Park to the Drive (D4) postion because the push button on the shifter will not depress

Hi Gil Snow,

There seems to be a blown fuse under hood causing the lights to show.

The push button problem might be due to a faulty brake switch. The next time you are unable to shift the gears, get someone to check if the brake lights are showing when brake pedal is depressed.
