1987 honda civic brake lights


I have a 1987 honda civic. It has 71000 miles on it, so I don’t want to sell it. My problem is that the emergency brake light is always on. Not only that, but the brake lights are always on if the battery is connected. What can I do?


Check the brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder reservoir. Also, the emergency brake light switch may be out of adjustment.


Same answer as yesterday. The brake light switch under the dashboard is probably stuck on, which is why the rear brake lights are always on. Adjust or replace the switch.

Check the brake fluid level in the reservoir. If it’s low it will activate the dashboard light.

There is a switch under the parking brake lever. If it’s bad, or mis-adjusted, it will also activate the light.
