Question about 1991 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Headlights work and shut off and turn back on and dont go on

Tried my high.beams only stay on while switch is held? Probally switch on column? My peekaboos work only when I hold the switch on high. When I let the lever go, I lose all lights again except for guideline, could be the relay or the high low switch.? I beleive they call it a turn signal and switch lever.(hi-low switch) . I dont have the dealership book, so I dont know which one is the relay, where would the high low relay be located? either on the driver side firewall, or under dashboard. If u could tell me where I can locate it that would be great!


Thank you
Stacey Dale Shorey.

My headlights wont work


I don't believe there is a fuse. There is a circuit breaker built into the headlight switch. If you are sure the headlight switch is good, it could be a bad dimmer switch. If you have a voltmeter, with the headlight switch turned on, a larger yellow wire going from the headlight switch to the dimmer switch should be a hot wire. The dimmer switch sends power on a tan wire to the low beams, and through a light green wire to the high beam bulbs.
If your high beam indicator on the dash also doesn't work, then it is likely one of those switches. A voltmeter or test light would need to be used to find which one is bad. If you can find the connector at the steering column going to the dimmer switch, pull it apart and check for power on the yellow wire coming from the headlight switch, with the headlight switch turned on. If no power, the headlight switch is bad. If there is power there, then the dimmer switch must be bad.

1996 dodge Ram 1500 4x4 headlights dont work.All other lights work. Headlight lamps are all good. Could it be the switch or the multifunction switch? High beam works when I pull on the directional le


The headlight switch gets power for the headlights from a 50amp fuse.
The fuse powers the headlight switch then the dimmer switch breaks for high and low beams. So if the high beams work, the problem may be with the dimmer switch.
The dimmer switch is made into the turn signal switch on the column. You would need to check the low and high beam circuits at the switch for power.

Headlights staying On


You probably have a faulty sentinel switch. It's supposed to shut off, has a bult in elctronic timer. Does it even have the sentinel switch?
