SOURCE: Left tail light out on 02 S10
I had this same symptom after I pulled a trailer that had light "issues". I tried wiggling the trailer light connector around until the trailer lights begin working. Next think I know they were not working again and now my left tail light was out. I thought it odd that is wasn't both lights out being on the same fuse, but checked wiring etc with no problems found. Mine turned out to be the "left tail light fuse" in the engine compartment fuse box. All of the parking and tail lights as independently fuse, You can tell which one it is by the guide on the fuse box lid. You will be looking for a 10 amp (red) fuse near the center of the fuse box.

This sounds like you have a bad ground on your Dakota. Trace the wires back until you see that one of the wires is connected to the body or frame with a small screw or small bolt. Make sure that your have a good clean ground to work with.
Another thing that you can check for is to see if there is another light out somewhere else on the truck. Its like christmas lights, when one bulb goes, it can effect all the others just as well. The only other option is to check your fuses, get the fuse diagram and see what controls the taillights. On my truck I have the wrong fuse in there cause only the taillights to work and not the brake lights. Vehicles are very picky with there fuses. If the correct fuse is in there, make sure that the fuse isnt burnt out. You can check that by seeing if the filament in there looks burn or is broken like it popped. Hope this helps!

A test light checking each connector would be faster and easier to do. Maybe somebody may have a illustration for you but by far a simple test light is all you need with a helper turning on the different lights as you check them out and writing all your findings down

Tail lights and brake lights are on the same wire.
Connect the wire from the brake light to the connector in the car to the tail lamp wire connector and you will be set to roll
