How about the fuse? Give that a check.

Tail light fuse 15a

If the fuse is blown it causes the cluster lights to go out

Re: need help brake lights dont work

is it the brake light or just simply the taillights themselves when you turn your lights on? if the taillights don't come with with your headlights, it's most likely one of your fuses. There's one under the hood and one behind the kick panel

Re: need help brake lights dont work

I'm not to sure about preludes on this matter but my accords brake lights wouldn't work and my running lights did and it turned out to be a little button that was attached to my brake pedal. When you push on the brake it lets off the button enabling the lights. It has a little plastic/rubber piece that holds the button pressed in and it dry rots. I would check my lude but I'm 100miles away from it. Good luck.

Re: need help brake lights dont work

There could be a break in the circuit so the easiest way to see if that's the problem is by checking the wires for continuity with a multimeter. It won't take long to test but if it is the problem it might take a while to find where the break is.
