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?

1993 Honda prelude The tail light is on however when you stepped on the brake the light does not come on so people behind do not know that you have stopped What could be the problem?

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.
