Why would you have to press brake hard to get from park to drive in a 1995 Honda Prelude with automatic transmission?

It sound like the switch needs to be adjusted down below the brake pedal. Someone thought it might be a solenoid problem? Does that sound right?

Yes, you'd have to find the stock automatic transmission for your year and engine size, the stock automatic brake pedal assembly, and miscellaneous small things like transmission fluid, the transmission dipstick tube, linkages, etc.

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.

Its on the slave cylinder which is on the front of the transmission just left of the front engine mount bracket. It looks just like a brake bleeder screw.

The one on the master cylinder is the brake light switch. The one on the brake pedal is for the automatic transmission, assuming that the car is automatic.

You have to be more specific and tell if it is a brake or engine problem. There are to many to tell where all are located.

No, the license plate light is wired in with the rear tail lights, not the brake lights.

The wire should rest at 12V+ or zero but when the parking brake is on the wire goes 12V- .

With a manual transmission you downshift to slow down in situations where in an automatic you would have to use the brakes. Using brakes more = brakes wearing faster.

User Avatar

The parking brake is on or the transmission (automatic) or the clutch (standard) has problems.

Changing an automatic to a manual transmission involves a lot of work. First, the brake pedal must be changed to a manual brake/clutch installation. Additionally, a separate bell housing, clutch mechanism, shifter and linkage are required.

disconnect the trans cable at trans connection with someone on brake or apply the parking brake

an automatic transmission shifts through the 4 or 5 gears for you as you accelerate. a manual transmission must be shifted by hand using a shifter and a clutch (located next to the left of the brake pad).

take out the cup holder in the center console next to the parking brake. it should be right under there.

User Avatar

Yes, via cable. Look under the brake booster,it connects there.

One foot on gas. The other on the brake. HAHA LOL Good luck.

I had this problem in my 1998 Honda Prelude. The brake fuse light may be blown out. Under the hood in my Prelude, there is a black box. Open it and check for a brake fuse that may be blown. I think there was some wording on the box for me such as "Light" for me to distinguish the right fuse. The tiny wire inside the fuse will be split in half, so you know that it is the one that is blown. I bought some new fuses at Pep Boys and changed it. Now my brake lights work.

I had that in a vehicle i used to drive, and they had to replace the whole wiring system inside the transmission

User Avatar

No. That would be a huge mistake. Buy brake fluid. Its only $2 to $8 dollars at a store.

The transmission is equipped with a relay switch that senses when the brake is applied. If the sensor is bad the transmission will not shift out of park.
