Most cars tail lights are atached by a couple of nuts from inside the trunk. you will have to peel back the carpet , or remove plastic cover panel if there is one.

Why want my brake lights go off?

Perhaps it's the fault in the brake light activation switch off the brake pedal. It's basically a plunger switch which makes contact with the brake pedal arm to trigger the tail lights. I once had this problem with a GM, but with no brake lights activating at all. Have a look underneath the dash and check for that plunger because maybe the plunger is sort of stuck and won't extend far enough to kill the circuit for the tail lights or maybe the spring is broken or the contact pad is shot. Worth a check anyways.

My brake lights work but my tail lights and reverse lights don't work. Also my dash lights quit when I changed the switch for my headlights.

Check your fuses. I had the same problem with a 90 Honda civic. Dash lights went out, tail lights also went out. Replaced 1 fuse and all came back on.

How do I replace the entire tail light on a 1987 honda civic dx?

if the panel is not damaged or only slightly damaged it should just be a case of removing the damaged tail light and fitting the new one, if all electrics work I would leave the socket

EF Civic Brake light turns off during braking w/lights on

The characteristic you described is almost always a ground connection that is not secure.

Check with an ohm meter the resistance between the ground at the light socket and the chassis of the car. Any resistance is an indication of a poor ground connection. Temporarily connect the return(ground) connection at the socket to the chassis using a jumper.

If all is correct with jumper in place determine poor connection location and repair.

Hope this helps?

Unplg the brake light switch under the dash or pull the brake light fuse. Brake light Switch is probably worn out and needs to be adjusted or replaced
