2003 durango brake light not working

If only one brake light is out (mine was driver's side) and you've tried changing the bulb, then it might be a metal contact in the bulb socket in the light assembly. Looks like the hot bulb melts the plastic and lets the one or more bulb contacts sink into the socket and pull away from the base of the bulb, preventing electrical contact. A little coating of solder on the socket contact(s) gave enough height to contact the base of the new bulb and get the brake light working again.

Check brake pads light on dash

There is a sensor on each of the front (not sure about the rear) brake calipers that indicate via the dash light when brake pads are worn down and need replacing. The wire is probably broken on one or both of the front wheel calipers. If there is enough slack in the wire you can just splice it back together with **** splice connectors and seal with heat shrink insulation. My '02 Passat has had it happen twice, first on the drivers side, repaired wire and light went out, then the other side broke, repaired the same way and haven't had any problems since.

Use a 12 Volt test light at the tail light connector and see if power is present at the harness, this would indicate a possible defective bulb socket.

Good day;
In your trunk area there should be a piece of carpet by your tail light just move that to the side and then you can access your bulb. Any problems please let me know.
