Alecia, Sounds like the switch near the brake pedal is sticking. Check the switch and the pedal height adjustment. I know it sounds complicated but it really isn't. This problem should be fixable with adjustments to the switch and/or brake pedal. . John In Montana

I had the same problem. There is a plastic piece on the brake pedal that pushes a solenoid when the pedal returns to the upright position. Its a round white piece about 1/8 inch thick. If it is completely missing you will only see the hole where the piece fits.

As a quick easy and cheap fix I simply superglued a penny over the hole. Not the best looking fix but it helped keep my battery from draining.

The brake booster on a 1990 Honda Civic is held in place with several mounting bolts and the brake master cylinder. Remove all the mounting bolts, vacuum lines and the master cylinder. Go underneath the dash and remove the plunger from the brake pedal. The booster will fall out. Replace the unit.

Daytime running lights on a Honda Civic are the same as normal headlights. To fix or replace them, locate the headlight housing in the front of the car. Remove the plastic housing and replace the bulbs.

No. The Prelude has a B20A5 motor. The civic will have a D-series tranny. They will not interchange (B and D series parts do not interchange).

The brake light switch is stuck or out of adjustment. If it is a mechanical switch it is located somewhere on the brake pedal swing arm. If it is a pressure switch it is located near the Master Cylinder.

Yes it will. Make sure you replace your motor mounts as they are most likely torn.
