Question about 1991 Honda Civic

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?

    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.

2005 kia sorento change ext fuse and it keep blowing

I have a 2004 Sorento EX and my EXT fuse along with the stop lamp fuse kept blowing. The ext would blow as soon as I turned the vehicle on. The stop lamp would blow after a couple pushes of the brake pedal causeing me to have no rear lights at all regarding brake and the lights that you turn on at night. After much reading online in forums such as this, I was led on a chase looking for grounding wires, broken wires, dirty battery terminals, faulty altinator, and for a drl module. I could not find a drl module as I now do not believe there is one in sorentos, or at least in mine. I then came to the brake switch that is located on the arm of the brake pedal. I disconnected it, put a couple of new fuses in, started my vehicle and checked my fuses, and at last they did not blow! I reconnected the brake switch and checked the fuses and they had blown. I have a hunch that I am dealing with a faulty brake switch. Hope this helps

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.

  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.

There you are.
I hope your repair goes well.
