Well, that's another one I haven't checked! And I thought I looked at them all, but there seems to always be one more.

Its one of the rear fog/hazard brake lights.

When the indicator first came on, I looked at all the bulbs, didnt find anything, told my wife to drive on the HW at 120 and slam the brakes so I can see while following her in our Accord what is going on.

Apart from almost ramming into the X3 cause the brakes on the Accord are nowhere near as good as in the X3, I barely had time to notice that no extra light came on.

So there you go.. the only bulb that is a to get is out...

Conclusion? Do not get an Accord!!!!!
Don't think I have rear fog lights. How do I know for sure?

Glad you didn't rear end your own car, that would be a hard one to explain to insurance! That's why I prefered to check the "force braking" just parked in my driveway.
