    it was actually a small rubber pc that pushed a white button "in " to turn off the lights......it is located on top of the brake pedal , no wires , it looks like the tip of a crayola......it must have just worn out...thanks for getting back so fast...

Check this 1st.With the car running,turn on the headlights.If the taillight gets brighter,it's the brakelight that is staying on.Turn the headlights off to see if that then makes it less bright.If so.try lifting the brake pedal up.If the taillights go out,it is the brakelight sensor switch that is hooked up to the brake pedal.This is a small pushswitch,located at the top of the brake pedal in the inside of the car.It will have 2 wires connected to it.It either needs adjusting or is faulty.Hope this helps

Check your brake light switch at the brake pedal. It's probably faulty, binding, or damaged. Hopefully this helps

The body style was the same from 1996 to 2000 for the Honda Civic. Are both of the Civics similar in body style as in they have the same number of doors? Not sure if a wagon or hatchback would interchange with a regular 2 door coupe.
