Add brake fluid with the car running?

It doesnt matter whether its running or not. Brake fluid is hydroscopic, which means it absorbs water from the atmosphere so it has to come from a sealed container and your cars brake fluid needs changing every two years. Light yellowish colour is ok, if its a dark colour it needs changing.

On mine, when the lights are off, the left brake light is faint but still works. When the lights are one, the running light is on (faint) but goes out when I hit the brakes. And the turn signal doesnt ever work. When Ive checked the light bulbs they burn out fast. I have been told that replacing the plastic bulb housing will fix this. But I have not tried it yet.

How do you turn off headlights in a 1998 Oldsmobile silhouette when it is running?

You can only turn off the headlights by applying the emergency brake. When the emergency brake is on, the headlights will not light. Otherwise the best of my expererience is that they are on all the time. If you have remote start, put the emergency brake on before you leave the vehicle and when you remote start it, the headlights will not be on, but the driving lights (if switch is on) will be on as well as the parking lights.

Covering the brake is the same as riding the brake?

Somebody who "rides" the brake is constantly applying pressure to the brake pedal with their foot. People who tailgate ride their brake alot. "Covering" the brake is a form of defensive driving. For example, while proceeding through a traffic light, you would want to take your foot off of the gas pedal and place it just above the brake pedal (without applying pressure) to decrease your reaction time in case you need to brake suddenly.

Why no brake lights on a 1993 Honda prelude but the running lights stay on all the time.Bulbs are fine .?

The brake lights may not work on a 1993 Honda Prelude if the brake light switch is no longer working. The brake light switch is in the steering column just above where the brake pedal is bolted to it. There is also a chance that a brake light fuse is blown.

Check your alternator, Mine did the exact thing. The Battery light and the !!BRAKE!!
