No. The only thing that deactivates it is the gas pedal, time (at which point it's swapped out by the parking brake), or you turning it off.One question/concern...
Lets say someone get rear ended while brake hold is on. Will it turnoff by the force of other car??

You are reading the manual wrong. It says that if you are stopped in one place for more than ten minutes using brake hold, after that point it will switch over to the parking brake. (Most people would just put the car in Park well before that point.)If you have Brake Hold on for more than 10 minutes; when you stop the car the Parking Brake is automatically engaged. Why Honda did this makes no sense. In my mind Brake Hild while driving does not mean I want Parking Vrake on when stopped.
As a former technical manual writer, I'm not really sure what the author is trying to say. I interpret the words a third different way.You are reading the manual wrong.

I had a friend check tonight - I stopped in a parking lot and let my foot off the brake with brake hold on - the brake lights went out. Put my foot back on the brake, brake lights came back on.I know I have read that when brake hold is activated the brake lights stay on until brake hold is deactivated, like when you press the accelerator.
Thanks - you're right! The brakes lights do stay on. I think what happened was the car can creep a little bit if you don't apply enough brake pressure and then come to a stop with brake hold engaged. So the brake lights will not be on until the car completely stops. Now we did the test in sunlight so that might have been a factor or my friend is going blind (Haha!).I suggest you report that to your Honda dealer on your next service. I back into my driveway. So I just went out, started the car, fastened my seat belt, engaged brake hold and put it in drive. Let it creep forward, applied the brakes. The brake lights went on. Took my foot off the brake, the brake lights remained on. Pressed the accelerator and the brake lights went off as I crept forward.
Wow, serious? Bad designHere's a big problem I found with this feature- when you stop and the Automatic Brake Hold is On and you take your foot off the brake, your brake lights go out! This is dangerous! And it frustrates drivers behind you - they think you are about to move when your brake lights go out. I've had a few drivers that were behind me shake their heads wondering what I was doing.
Also, If you're stopped like this and a car is coming up fast behind you, they don't know you're stopped and could cause an accident because they can't stop in time. This feature now scares me!
