Question about 2003 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Honda civic brake light harness.

We have replaced the brake light twice and it's still not working properly. It lights up but when you apply the brakes it doesn't get brighter (like the other side of the car.) The garage says we need to replace the entire harness (500$), is this a scam?

Not sure that I would replace the harness just yet. Check the ground wire to see if it has a bad connection. If that is ok, use an ohm meter to check the ground in the socket. If it has high resistance, you can replace just the sockets. Cut the wires, then solder the wires from the new socket in place. The local parts store usually has these in stock. I've had to do this to a car last summer, wasn't very difficult.

The two tailights in the trunk of my 2005 honda civic si do not work. the bulbs and fuse are ok. is this a civic problem


Do the lights on the trunk operate when the parking lights are on, but do not light up when you apply the brakes? If so, this is normal. Only the outer red lights are brake & parking combination lights. The ones adjacent to the reverse lights on the trunk lid are parking lights only.

If the red lights in the trunk lid are not working at all, check the red/yellow and black/silver wires where they go from the trunk lid down into the right side of the trunk area. The wiring harness for the parking and reverse lights are contained in a piece of black tubing that is connected to the passenger's side trunk hinge.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

Brakes applied, brake light turns on but other running lights off


The brake switch under your brake pedal may be defective. It turns on the brake lights when brakes are applied, if it is defective within the switch, it may short your other lights when brakes are applied. The switch can be replaced by you and it not expensive.

Brake lights are stuck on in 94 honda civic


Check to see if the switch, even though its new, is functioning properly. Perhaps check your wiring harness that the switch connects to to see if there is any damage like cracks or corrosion. Check back tailight wiring harness are in good condition and the bulb contacts are clean and free of corrosion and the contacts themself are clean and in good condition and getting power and grounded.
