Question about Honda Civic

1 Answer

2004 Honda civic has lighting issues: Pressing the brake pedal the front marker lights turn on and so do the dash lights as well as the rear brake lights. When the column light switch is turned on, the brake and marker lights as well as the dash all light up and when the brake pedal is pressed, the brake lights don't get any brighter- I believe that they are already on.

You have a bad ground somwhere. You need to check and look for broken wires or corroded connections. A good manual with a wiring diagram helps with this.

1993 Honda accord EX no brake lights


This sounds like Brake Light Switch, can be found at any local parts store, for under $15 and easy enough to replace. The switch is located under the brake pedal and depresses when you hit the brakes, causing the brake lights to turn on. Replacing this is cheap and easy.

Yes,try pulling up the brake pedal with your hand,see if the brake lights go off,if they do,or they do not,the problem will be with the brake light switch on the brake pedal under the dash.

1991 Honda Civic DX.The rear tail lights are staying on and no brake lights. The front lights work fine (marker/head) off the switch All fuses are good. ????


Herbie, sorry by my English. It is very simple to solve :):) of course after I breaking my head. That's the explanation and solution:
1 - When we pressing the brake pedals in our mind it looks we are pressing a switch which cut the "contact". In really is the opposite! Everytime we pressing the pedal we are realeasing (or making free) a light switch and making contact. It means everytime you do not pressing the pedal the pedal is cutting the light contact.
2 - Go down the steering whell area and look the brake pedal. You will see that there is and bolt/nut threated at brake pedal stopper. Look the brake pedal and you will se there is an empty hole. On that hole should to be a white plastic peace which looks like an arrow. That peace it has to be assembled for behind the pedal and the "arrow" may be touching the bolt/nut.
3 - The reason why you light it stay on is because the lack of the white peace it makes de metal do not touching the bolt/nut area. This gap it turns the lights on.
I only found the peace at Honda Dealer and is cheap if you considering the problem but it is expensive if you considering how simple and small it is.
Hope this can help and solve your problem.

No parking front or rear, side markers, brake or dash lights.


Sounds like an earth / ground wiring problem at the rear lighting units, when the flashers are on and you press the brake pedal the power is back earthing through the flashers. Check all earth/ground points at the rear lights.....Good luck hope this helps
