2001 Honda Prelude Problems

Brake Light On Due to Faulty Master Cylinder Resevoir Filter

A faulty brake master cylinder reservoir filter can cause the brake system indicator to illuminate after a cold start and then go off. Replacement of the reservoir filter will commonly fix this problem.

2001 Honda Prelude Recalls

Honda Recalls 1997-2002 Due to Ignition Switch Interlock Failure

Honda has recalled 1997-2001 Prelude, 1999-2002 Accord, and 1999-2000 Acura TL models because the ignition switch interlock may fail. If this happens, the key will be removable before the engine is in the "Park" position, which could cause the vehicle to roll and crash. Dealers will confirm interlock function and vehicles will receive an updated interlock lever free of charge.
