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.

I have a1990 Honda crx my brake light and dash seems to stay on I check the emergency brake switch when I pull it turns brighter I also unplugged the wires from brake master fluid resovor still light stays...


the brake lights staying on is a fault in the brake pedal switch,which should be an open circuit when the pedal is up.there is 12v that is passed thru when pushed down.the switch on the reservoir opens and closes with the fluid level. why the dash light stay on leads me to believe that you have a short in the turn signal switch assembly which has light controls on the end .

Brake lights on 1989 honda civic went out...what is the problem? brake switch maybe? All fuses are fine


Check the brake light switch above the brake pedal with a volt meter, when the pedal is pushed you should have 12 volts in and out.

Emergency brake light stays on the dash. is it a troubleshooting light?


It probably indicates that the cable is not being fully retracted when brake is disengaged. Spray as much of cable as possible with WD-40, allow to sit for a few hours, the engage and disengage the brake several times untill it loosens. If this fails the cable may be stretched and needs to be replaced.

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 Accord Brake Lights Stay on


Hi,
Usually there is a spring loaded switch that is activated by the brake pedal arm (under the dash). It registers on the pedal arm and when the pedal is depressed the switch is activated, causing your brake lights to illuminate.
The switch may have been bumped out of position. Hopefully this is a quick and easy fix for you...
Good luck!

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.

Rear brake lights do not work.


The brake light that is on the dash is for the emergency brake...When that light is on that is supposed to tell you that the emergency brake is applied if the brake is not applied then you need to service the emergency brake. And on the brake pedal there is a coupler that is hooked up to the pedal bracket that wire may be soft set try gently snapping it into place.
