Best help I can give is the Autozone.com site for chassis diagrams. They are free when you register your truck and have fusebox layouts too. Maybe you can see something common to all problems stemming from 1 connection somewhere. Good Luck

Brake lights don't work, dash lights come on when brakes are applied and cruise goes off when headlights are turned on


brake lights operate off a simple switch mounted to the bracket of the brake peddle. that switch can easily have a wire pulled out, the switch it self dies from use. a fuse in the fuse box in the lower part of the could be blow. as far as the cruise going off when headlights are turned on, could be the switch on the column itself is worn out. remember your girl is a teenager now, they give you the most random problems.

When brakes are applied parking and dash board lights come on.when headlights are on,brake lights and tail lights do not work.very first symptom was an intermittent tail or brake light out indicator...


you might have an open ground wire on your brake/tail lights .. when you apply the brakes then power would flow thru the brake light (not see ground) so would then provide power backwards thru the parking light (common ground open) to all the other things connected to the parking lights .. like the other parking lights and dash ... when you turn power on to those things (headlights on) then there is 12 volts on both sides of the light .. thats why the lights quit working ... if the missing ground is the problem then most of the lights that are improperly turning on should be at a lowered brightness level.. interesting problem .. its also possible to have a brake light bulb that has the common ground open inside or not making connection with its socket .. i would start by removing the brake lamps and see if the problem goes away .. if it does look for a broken ground or damaged lamp ..

91 Dodge ram 50 ignition problem, rough idle in drive,dies when braking


my ram 50 starts just like any other vehicle, (no light switch pulling whatso ever), it sounds like somebody haas rewired something wrong or you have a loose connection and when you hit a large enough bump it cuts your power. Start it up and find a speed bump somewhere and drive over it enough to give your truck a jolt and see if it dies.

Engine will start and rough idle but dies when either the brakes are applied or the lights are turned on!


have you checked out your fuel filter? I had my 2003 denali do the same type of problem and it turned out to be a very dirty fuel filter.
