Brake lights stay on...

On a different note... The Brake lights (tail lights) stay on when your foot is off of the pedal, and you have to pull the fuse to get them to turn off.. I do know that the car needs brake work because it won't stop well.. It has a leak in the system somewhere. Could this be part of the problem, or what else could be wrong with it??
Any help is appreciated!
Joe

Re: Brake lights stay on...

sounds like it could be a problem with the relay. chuck in a new one and see if it works. sounds like it might be sticking.

Not sure if this applies to Preludes but a lot of cars have a button that the brake pedal sets on when your foot is off. There's a little plastic piece that pushes the button in and can sometimes dry rot and fall off. Hope this solves your problem.

Sorry folks, haven't been on! I have replaced the little rubber/ plastic thing that pushes on the button with a bolt! No more dry rotting now!

Hahaha! Yes it did! I will probably eventually find something better, but it is last on my list! The bolt works great! Thanks for the help!
