Question about 1993 Honda Civic 4 Door
1991 honda civic the brake light stays lite on the dash board. I think the emergency brake is not releaseing so would this cause the brake light to stay on and having to push the brake petal to the floor to stop?
The light has several triggers. only one of which is the E brake. most likely you are having trouble with a fluid pressure imbalance. either you have air in one of your brake lines, you are low on brake fluid, or you have a leak in the system.

Sounds like you might have a caliper that is stuck and is not fully disengaging. If it is in the rear then you may have a bad rear caliper. Twoo things you can try. One is to crawl under the ca and adjust the tension two nuts on the emergency brake line. If that does not resolve the problem then remove the back tire and try to spin the drum or rotor whichever you may have. If it does not spin then try adjusting the e brake cable more if it still does not respond then you need to do a brake rebuild. Also does it pull while it is dragging? If it is then you will need to rebuild the brakes no matter what.
