Your Hand Parking Brake Lever Is Loose And needs To Be Adjusted
If That is Not The issue then Check The Brake Fluid canister And See If It is low on fluid
If That is Not The issue then Take It to A mechanic ...Do Not play around when it comes to safety with vehicles ...

My inside dashboard lights and back break light suddenly stopped working so cant drive it at night. Its a 99 honda prelude. I've tried changing the light bulbs and the fuse but still not working.


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

Brake dash light stays


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

U may have a faulty "brake lamp switch" normally located under your brake pedal, that's probably the cause of brake lights staying on. Check your fuses,,could be blown

Why is the brake lamp light on the dash staying on


You either have a blown brake bulb, your handbrake indicator is stuck or you brake master cylinder is low on fluid.

Sounds like the fuel pump may be going out. I'd have it checked.

Brake lamp light


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
