Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Brake Light I just had new brakes put on in May. It just started this week, it doesn't do it all the time, but when I make a left-hand turn my brake light comes on. I notice other people having the same problem and just curious, if brakes are ok, you have enought brake fluid - what are other concerns and will it cost $$$$. Thank you!

    My brakes have always squeaked even when replaced - I notice I do have a little spot in the drive way, I tired to be good about keeping up regular maintenance - I am pretty sure I have close to 200,000 miles .

    I was a bit low on brake fluid - put some in this morning and when I made my left-hand turn the light did not come on. Hopefully that will fix it:-) I did not get a chance to check for any leaks where I parked last night. I will check today when I move my car and see if there are any leaks! Thank you very much. Quick question, do you all recommend mechanics?

    thank you very much! I will have it checked out.

To narrow things down... park the vehicle in the driveway over night... when you move it in the morning ... note the area of the spill on your driveway as it would apply to the car.
Two quick things... what is the level of your brake fluid and what colour and smell was the spill ?

    I would suggest if it was low on fluid either a wheel cyclinder is leaking or a caliper.... have them check just to be on the safe side.

Brack lights wont light up on my 1988 ford ranger we keep blowing fuse and put in new brake switch


If you keep blowing the brake fuse than you have a short in the system. Unplug the brake switch. Install a new fuse. If it did not blow than the problem is after the brake switch. Next unplug the turn signal switch, then plug the stop light switch back in and press the brake pedal. Did the fuse blow. If not than the wiring is good in between the two switches. With the turn signal switch disconnected use a jumper wire in between the light green wire (power from the brake switch) and the orange with light blue wire (power to the right brake lamp). If the fuse blows than there is a short in the right side brake circuit between the plug in and the rear socket assembly. If the fuse does not blow than jump from the light green wire to the Light green with orange wire (power to the left brake lamp). If the fuse blows than the problem is in the left hand brake wiring circuit.

Left brake light stays on constantly when headlights are on. When headlights are off, left brake light is dimmer than right brake light when brakes are applied. I did recently change the brake bulb. ...


There is a shortage some where at the brake bulb and low beam holder. Take off the bulbs and inspect carefully those losing wires attached to the ends can cause the problem. Good luck.

Brake light, reverse light and turn signal issues


Hello. The symptoms you are describing are likely due to a poor ground. Temporarily install a new ground wire by securing a piece of copper wire to the frame with a self tapping screw. Use this ground wire along with the hot wire to see if each of these lights works. If it does, trace the ground wire back to the frame, unscrew it and clean up the metal with emery cloth so you reestablish a good ground.

No brakes after changing brake caliper & bleeding system


Sounds like you still have air in your brake lines. Make sure all your brake lines are tight. Then bleed again. Bleed the trouble side first, meaning right side, then go to front left, back left then back right, make sure that your brake fluid is also full
