My 2001 Prelude brake light (dash) always stays on...I don't even use the e-brake! Sometimes it will go away after I brake, but just to reappear shortly after for no apparent reason...I don't know if you've seen those damn things but they are bright & annoying! Any suggestions?

If the dash lights are on the same circuit as the park lights. Chances are if no dash lights... no park lights. Unless the dash light dimmer switch is on the low position. Check park light fuse. If no brake lights... which are on a different circuit and you are sure the bulbs are ok check brake light fuse. If fuse ok, unplug brake light switch at brake pedal and cross the terminals with a jumper. If brake lights work, the brake switch is faulty. If still no brake light operation suspect a wiring issue
Look under dash at the top of your brake pedal. See the button switch, that the pedal pushes in. Push in and out by hand a few times. Put a dab of oil on your finger, put on button, and push in a few times by hand
I had this same problem (brake lights won't come on when pushing on brake) I found that the brake light sending unit had come out of adjustment.Look under the dash by the brake pedal.There is a plastic threaded unit that needs to be pushed back towards the brake pedal lever.Careful not to push it to far or the brake lights will stay on. Hope this helps
underneath the dash where the steering wheel colume is you will see the top end of the brake petal, and attached in there you will see a connection that turns the brake light off when the pedal is released by pushing it in, there are rubber attachments on that button like piece that goes in and out, which turns the brake lite off and lets in come on, when the brake is pushed down. Replace them, just tell the people at the parts place what you need and they will know what it is. Good luck. Don Carroll.
It's usually the brake pedal is sticking or you might just need to adjust the pin when you apply your brakes it makes those lights stays on. sometimes you can spray a wd-40 and it'll go away.. this pin is located on top of the brake pedal when you look underneath the steering wheel column or panel....hoped i helped you on this one... The brake light switch may be either stuck or broken.
Get down in the driver's footwell, and follow the brake pedal arm up under the dash. Look for the switch (see link for a picture), see if the moving arm on it moves freely as the pedal is depressed. If not, try spraying some lube on it (WD-40 or the like) and working it to get it to move freely.
If the arm won't move freely, or the lights don't turn on even when you move the arm, the switch should be removed and replaced.
there is a brake switch a few inches above the brake pedal, sometimes there is a little rubber bumper that depresses it, that bumper rots away and the brake lights stay on. see if the parts store has something you can put in the hole, like a door panel retainer or maybe even a new bumper. you may ned to readjust the switch after that.
