Front or back?

Have you jacked the car up and tried to spin the wheels?

The rear handbrake cables do seize up..

Poor maintenance on any of the sliding brake parts could cause some drag..

The car will not start because the brakes are sticking in the brake lights stay on.

You should have stayed with your original thread.
Did you do what Sam suggested?
Front or back?
Checked your other thread and got it figured out I think. You mean it won't "MOVE", but engine will START?.

well I am having a hard time navigating this website on my phone. Taking it in to Honda Friday morning at 8:15. Not sure I have the talents to jack up my car and check it that way. I am the original owner so I do not even recall every having brake issues. Maybe I had the brake pads replaced once. Hard to remember. So I will take it in.

Sounds like it's the parking brake / rear brakes / cable - since the brake light is staying ON. Pedal/front brakes won't cause that.

I’m sorry I am driving and I don’t live on my computer. I will try to answer the questions when I’m safely home.

I hope you make it home. Texting while driving is a good way not to makle it home. I have no problem with you killing yourself. That's your business. But there is a good chance you could kill or injure innocent people. Please do not text and drive.

Ok so if I pull up real hard on the brake pad the light will go off. It will delay auto start because they “stick” so if I’m stopped I have to put my foot under it and pull it up. I do not know how else to explain it, “brakes sticking”
