make sure you are getting voltage out of the brake light switch. If so, check if the voltage is getting to the socket. Best way is a simple volt meter or test light.
I found the harness plug behind the interior panel was burnt up due to having a bad connection.
plug was on the driver side, you have to pull the rear seat and the panel to get at it.
Check to see if where the brake light switch button goes there is a blue or gray plastic stopper there. it keeps the button in the closed position which in turn keeps the brake light off. One of the most common problems in all.
The switch has gotten dirty on the inside, or light relay is old
Check the fuses Check the backup switch Check the wiring - make sure that there is good contact.
Bulbs burned out? Headlight switch bad? Relay?
Your problem very well could be the hazard switch. i have a 1994 honda civic too i found whenever i disconnected the hazard switch from the wiring harness my turn signals brake lights and of course hazards do not work. Maybe replace the hazard switch..
Have you checked it's starter?
Could be a Canadian Civic(?) Could be a broken light switch on US Civic - the parking lights include a small white light on the front.
well if your head lights and tail lights are still working then its your dimmer switch that has gone bad and needs to be replaced. i just recently had this problem and was fixed with a 10 replacement off ebay.
If you already checked your bulbs then check your fuses, usually this is the case when all the lights stop working at the same time.
Check bulbs, fuse, bad ground, brake light switch.
maybe it's wired on the wrong side of the switch
Your dimmer switch is either set to minimum intensity or malfunctioning.
how do you get to and change the front parking lights on a 1991 civic hatchback si?
Usually at the base of the brake pedal.
If the bulb will not work the fuses under the dash should be checked. When these fuse fail the brake lights will not turn on.
i have the same problem, already replaced the switch. Its the motor. its around $90 new
hook it up to a troggle switch that way you can turn it on and off as you please
The wipers on my 1998 Honda Civic were stuck on low so I assumed it was the switch and replaced it, but the problem continued. The local Honda dealer told me that I should replace the motor, which I did, and the problem was fixed.
check fuses, and then check for power to the bulbs check for power in and out of brake switch
Check the appropriate fuses first, if they are okay it may need to have the dash light bulbs replaced - espcially on a vehicle that old.
The taillight bulbs can be easily replaced on a Honda Civic. Open the trunk and locate the plastic covers. Remove the plastic cover and pull the bulbs. Replace with new bulbs and install the covers.
What do you mean by running lights?? If it is the brake lights you are talking about, it may be the brake switch. this switch is on the brake pedal and makes the lightrs come on when you press the pedal. if you look to the very top of your brake pedal you should see this switch and a wire connected to it.(You may have to remove some of the trim, you may not. Im not to sure on this year. Hope this helps you some.

how to replace the thermal switch relay on a 1992 Honda civic lx
There may be a cut in the wire(s). You will need a Digital Volt Meter to test the wire(s) at your brake light. There is a switch that is actuated when you apply pressure to the brake pedal. If the switch is malfunctioning your lights won't come on.
