85 4wA1.8 EX brake light problems..

Hey All,

I recently purchased a 1985 Prelude for $700AUD. Runs great with no real issues. But I've got a real odd issue with the brake lights.

When I first start the car and its running there are no lights on. But as soon as i apply pressure to the brake the "BRAKE LAMP" and "BRAKE" light come on.

I've checked all the bulbs in the tail and they are all good. I've also check the level of fluid and its all good. Im thinking maybe a faulty brake switch?

Can anyone point me in the direction of where the switch is located, and also provide any ideas?

Cheers in advance all...

I just had a similer problem with my brake light on an 87 I found the connection on the socket was bad, the actual brake light might be low fluid if that is the case make sure the pads are in good shape before adding fluid. on some cars the fluid level can be an indicator of low brake pads and/or shoes. hope that helps.
