Question about 1989 Honda Prelude
After a few mins of starting the car the brake lamp light comes on, on the dash why?
Two things spring to mind, first your front pad wear indicators are telling you the pads are down to their limit and second and most important it could be a drop in the fluid level in the master cylinder, if it is a drop in the fluid level this would indicate a leak somewhere, the usual place is a rear wheel cylinder.
It would be wise to get this checked out quickly because if it is a rear wheel cylinder it is very simple to replace and not terribly expensive, also if you get it done quickly you will reduce the chance of brake fluid contamination on the rear brake shoes which will mean replacing them as well.

How are the brakes acting? This means that you have a brake system malfunction, or that your parking brake is on. 1st thing to check is fluid level. If it's low the light will go on. If it is low, check for leaks. Is your brake pedal low, 'squishy' going to the floor, brakes fading? All of these are system problems. Release the parking brake (even if you don't think it's on, push down on brake release). If it's not adjusted properly, the light can come on. Although it could be a minor problem, don't screw around, find out what's wrong because you may completely lose your brakes next time out. good luck countrycurt0
