My brake lights stayed on after I 5turned car off-have done everything I could think of-finally disconnected battery -only thing that made them go off. What could be the problem? I just had to replace brake light bulbs last month-first time in 17 years!
Brake lights are on on 1993 Honda Civic del Sol

Probably a failed brake light switch located at the brake pedal. Disconnect the wires at the switch see if the lights go out if so replace the switch.

there is a little piece that fits on the brake pedal...mine had disintegrated and i had the same problem. when you presh the brake, it releases the switch causing the lights to come on...releasing the brake depresses the switch, disengaging the lights. i used a nut/bolt in the hole until i could order the piece from honda.
