Isn't that mysterious? It took me a few weeks to figure it out. Look carefully under the break pedal. There is this device called a "break light switch". I hope that helps.

SOURCE: 1991 Honda Civic DX.The rear tail lights are

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.

My Brake lights won't work on a 1998 Volvo S70


There are several possible reasons. Obvious ones might be checking for fuses that are burned out. Second would be making sure you are getting good connections to your brake lamps (all 3). Third, check the brake light switch at the pedal. And last, Volvo Part Number 9442303 is a brake lamp failure relay that can go bad. It's not inexpensive, but probably more than likely the issue. One way to check is to find out if your cruise control works. If it does not, it is likely the relay. It is grey and flat on all sides. Earlier model Volvos had round red ones. Check the location in the service manual.

Brake lights wont come on 1992 volvo gl


Check the brake switch its located above the brake pedal , when pedal is pressed down the switch opens allowing power to go thru the switch to the back brakes . You will see a little plastic stud comes out like a pen trigger in and out as you press and depress the brake pedal . Hope this help .
