Question about 1991 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Rear stop lights

All of a sudden, my rear brake lights will not go off. I disconnected the battery to see if it would reset and looked at the switch on the brake pedal itself. Can someone help me?

    The car is a manual but that crayon piece was there and I threw it away thinking, "where did this come from". I appreciate it, I will go get a replacement piece today. Thanks!!

    I had this same problem with my car. Have you noticed any type of crayon type material by your break pedal? If you follow the brake pedal up under the dash there is a switch that is activated when the pedal is pushed. The plastic piece broke of on my car and the brake light would just stay on.

You poor thing ,dont you you realise its one of them american thingys where the brake light is also the indicator ,totally illegal here in europe where it has to be a amber indicator light anyway the fault lies for sure in the fancy stop light switch ,my best advice would be to buy rear europeon rear lights and have them fitted and that monstosity of a stop light switch with all the relevant horrors of the wiring discarded in favour of a simplier system

My brake light is staying on, what is the problem?


Hello Mr Mixer.

When this happens it is usually a bad brake light switch mounted on the brake pedal lever.
Easy to replace if you are a handy fellow.

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
  2. Disconnect electrical connector for stop light switch.
  3. Remove bolt and lock nuts attaching brake pedal to stop light switch and push rod.
  4. Remove stop light switch and bushings from brake pedal.
  5. Reverse procedure to install.

1989 Cadillac rear lights stay on


It may be a turn hazard module under dash.that is the culprit! The power to the third brake light does not go through the module, but the rear brake lamps power is controlled through this module. I am looking at a drawing of one and it looks like it has two connectors with about five wires in one and six in the other. It has some cooling fins on it also.
