Rear wheels lock up on my dodge dakota


What year Dakota? Drum Brakes?

Lock up when?

If you use the parking brake,then the cables
have to be replaced because of rust.

With proper brake maintenance once a year, there is no
reason to say they lock up while driving

1994 dodge dakota my headlights and tail lights and brake lights don't work my abs and parking brake lights are on my dash lights don't work either I replaced the headlight switch and still no


These are all different circuits. The brake lights are on a 10amp fuse - the headlights are on a 50amp fuse - and the parking and dash lights are on a 20amp fuse.
Do you have power going into the headlight switch and the brake light switch ?

My brake light is on in my 91 dodge dakota


you may check the preeure sensor on the master cylinder. Also, if the switch for the parking brake is stuck closed, or if the ABS speed sensor or monule have failed, it could have cuased these sysptoms.

Anti lock brake light won't go off


Check all the wiring to each wheel for a sensor is attached to the back side of each one. Road debries can shear a wire in two and cause the ABS light to stay on and have good brakes at the same time

My parking brake light and anti lock light are on. The truck runs fine but is this something to worry about? it is a 1990 Dodge Dakota 4 wheel drive


Non at all if the truck is rolling fine and does not seem to be dragging. ABS light may be faulty abs pump. I just open the hood and pull the fuse on mine.

On a Dodge when you have a problem with the anti-lock brake system or the hydraulic brake system it turns both lights on. You need to have your truck inspected to find out which one has the problem.
