Do two things check your brake fluid and then check the switch for the parking brake. The switch may be stuck or shorted causing the light to stay on.

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 .

This sounds like the brake light switch or the control switch on the brake pedal is bad or loose. Check under the dash above the brake pedal there should be one or two switches that tell the brake lights to come on and the cruise control to shut down.

Brake lights stay on


The warning light on the dash, or the brake lights in the back of the car ? ?
The brake fluid could be low or the parking brake switch could be faulty if the warning light is on.
The brake light switch on the pedal could be faulty if the brake lights are staying on.

Check your emergency brake. Make sure it isn't partially pressed in. Try unplugging the switch to the emergency brake and see if the light goes out; if it does the switch is bad.

yes there is a switch, it is above the brake pedal and is actuated by the arm the brake pedal is on, very easy to replace, u will need to pull the plastic panel off under the dash to see it.

Tail Lights stay on all the time.


under the dashboard on the drivers side. look at the brake pedal lever. there should be a switch attached. push switch in and twist to remove. then pull the button as far out as it will go. while holding brake pedal down reinstall switch. then pull pedal up to top. this will reset the brake light switch. if they stay on still, then just replace the brake light switch.
