Lately, the Brake light on the dash has been coming on intermittently for a few seconds and then goes off. This light usually is only on when I have the parking brake engaged. It comes on while driving, sometimes flashes a bit, then goes off. Doesn't cause any problems, just annoying. Any ideas what could cause this?

Thanks,
Mike

Have you checked your Brake Fluid Level?
It will go on when the fluid drops below a certain level.
If the brakes haven't been bled in years, the old fluid may be causing a problem with gumming up the switch or screen.
If you don't want to bleed the brakes at this time, at least use a 'turkey baster' type tool to suck out all the old fluid you can and immediately fill it up again with fresh new Honda approved brake fluid.

Haven't check the brake fluid level in a while. I last bleed the brakes when replacing the pads at about 80k miles, now the vehicle has about 140k. Thanks for the tip.
