Question about 2001 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Why did the brake lights and low beams quit working on my 2001 Dakata?

Noticed my lights were ery dim as I left my house this morning. Switched between high and low beam - Highs work lows don't. Returned to my garage and checked all lights. Brake lights and low beams don't work. Searched for fuses and relay but could not find anything for the lights. I am pretty mechanical and know about brake light switch, dimmer switch, burnt bulbs, etc... I am suspect of both brake lights and low beams both going at the same time. Turn signals work, high beams work. I cannot believe I cannot find fuse or relay to check for fault so I decided to give this a try. Please Help if you can. Brian

Hi the first thing I check on for anyelectrical problem is a bad ground connection. Follow the headlight wires as far as you can, even when they disappear into a larger covered loom at random places, maybe even right next to each light, you will find a wire or several attached to ground, could be a inner fender, engine, etc.. sometimes a inner fender ground is just a selftapping screw, It may be rusted out or just loose. Headlights work through relays that are also located in the fuse boxes. I assume you have checked both fuse boxes, in the truck and under the hood, good luck, Chuck

SOURCE: 1992caravan turn signals, low beams, and heater motor do notwork

A) Faulty turn signal switch or circuit.
B) Broken dimmer switch or poor electrical connection.Could be relay also.
C) Unplug the electrical connector at the motor and use fused jumper wires to connect the fan motor directly to the battery. If the fan still doesn't work replace the motor. If fan works could be your relay.

The indicator on the dash is connected directly to the high beams bulbs wiring so your problem is in the relay, it's burned out and it sticks in a partially closed position. This explains also why the high beams are dimmer than the low ones - the contacts on the relay are burned out and offer a much greater resistance to the flow of current, hence lower light.
Replace it.

Why do my all my lights work on my 2001 GMC jimmy except my low beams.


Replace the turn signal switch. All the exterior lights run threw it except the high brake light. There is a small plastic clip/switch in it that controls high and low setting. Because of heat it starts to melt and quits working.

Left headlights


Check your connections at the wiring harness going to headlights for corrosion, sounds like high resistance somewhere, also make sure your ground wires are secure. It wouldn't be the alternator or the battery would be dead and not start the engine. Also shouldn't be any condensation in your head light assembly's or will cause bulbs to blow prematurely.

Hi, i own a jeep liberty 2004. The brake lights work but when it's dark and i have my low beam lights in front switched on, my left break light will not light up, the right brake light will do. I switched...


The rear light assemblies need to be removed and the replaced. The filaments have either melted together or the wrong ones installed at some point. Let me know if you need anything else.

2001 Toyota Corolla high beam lights are not


Your switch must be working since your indicator is telling you when the high beams are on, so my guess is that your bulbs are faulty. The high beam part. They probably burnt out one at a time, so you didn't notice until the second one went. Change your bulbs, and see if that solves it. If not, let me know.
