    I do most of my own work, so I do not need to sign up for a plan. Just need to know where the fuse or circuit breaker is for the brake lights as it is not in the owners manual or on interior panel nor on the underhood electrical box.

    Thanks, Bob

    I have the same problem. I have no tail lights when I mash the brake. I replaced the stop light switch next to the brake peddle and it still does not work. I was told by someone at a dealership it could still be in the switch. I am going to carry the switch back and try a new one again.

    Found my problem of no brake lights on '02 Dakota. Seems they did not screeen some of the underhood info properly on the cover for the fuses. If you are looking at the panel, open from the left fender, it is the first blue 20 amp fuse towards the front of the engine. About $3 bucks a piece. I now carry spares as you will not find it on highway very easily and I found most auto stores only stock the 30, 40, and 50 amp size. And the manual is totally useless when trying to locate the fuse. That was a direct comment from a Chrysler mechanic.

Your prob could be the switch at the brake peddle. If not go to the wiring at the trailer hitch. Frankster016

    Fuses blow for a reason! Like I said, if it has a trailer hitch, do check it out! Frankster016

No brake lights

Crossed up live wires with ground on the trailer harness, check the truck fuses for the lights they might be blown.

I posted a question yesterday about my 2001 Dodge Dakota (brake lights and flashers not working, bulbs and fuse okay). Not sure how this system works, but I paid 9.95 for the premium service and expected...

Your brake light switch is probably the culprit here. It is located on the brake pedal where the rod attaches from the master cylinder. Check for continuity on and off as well as voltage at the plug in. Hope this helps;

2002 Dodge Dakota

well because the abs light indicates a problem with your anti-lock braking system you need to find out why it is on.... keep in mind one quick way you would disengage your cruise is with the brake pedal.
under the hood is a fuse panel (often located near the battery) ... see if there is a relay in the for your cruise... replace that.
