i detached the connectors in the back because that's the only way to put those lights 'off', especially when i'm not using the car. but, they're not really working as break lights because if i re-connect the lights, they're always 'on'. they're supposed to turn on only when i step on the 'breaks'.
i just found out that my brake lights are always on. on 2004 Honda Civic

ATTACHED TO YOUR BRACKET UNDER DASH IS A BRK LIGHT SWITCH THAT DEPRESSES WHEN U PUSH YOUR BRK PEDAL THATS YOUR BRK LIGHT SWITCH. UNPLUG IT AND SEE IF THAT TURNS LIGHTS OFF IF SO THATS YOUR PROBLEM
