    Dash 'brake lamp' and parking light on

    1991 Honda Prelude
    When I start the car the brake lamp and parking/handbrake light on the dash are off however when I depress the brake pedal all the way in and let go, the brake lamp and parking light turn on on the dash. I have no idea whats causing this!

    Brake fluid is on MAX
    All brake lights work
    Brake pads seem fine
    Brakes feel no different than they ever have!

    Any ideas??

This is a good compromise between the sporting side and the comfort side. As I said, I think it is a super, super car." - Ayrton Senna

    handbrake light could just be the connector next to the handle, cant remember what it looks like atm, but you need to take out the center console to check, I had same prob w the brake light, swap out the unit behind the lights housing and prob disappears, but if all brake lights working I woundnt worry about it
