SOURCE: All lights work on the rear except the three brake lights

Sounds like the brake light switch has a problem. Located above brake pedal and activated with the brake pedal arm. Check for power going in and coming out when you apply the brake.

SOURCE: Brake lights don't work

Toggle the 4 way flasher switch on and off a few times and see if that corrects problem, if it doesn't replace the switch.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge diesel doesn't have brake lights.

Sounds like a short in your wiring. Have you checked the bulbs and you could have bought a bad brake light switch. Try having somone step on the brake lights and use a test light to see if your getting current back there

SOURCE: o2 Dodge Dakota Brake lights wont work but bulbs r good.

If the bulbs are good I would suspect the Brake light switch.

Brake Light Switch: Testing and Inspection
The brake lamp switch can be tested with an ohmmeter. The ohmmeter is used to check continuity between the pin terminals.
Switch Circuit Identification
- Terminals 1 and 2: brake lamp circuit
- Terminals 3 and 4: RWAL/ABS module and Powertrain Control Module (PCM) circuit
- Terminals 5 and 6: speed control circuit
Switch Continuity Test
NOTE: Disconnect switch harness before testing switch continuity.
With switch plunger extended, attach test leads to pins 1 and 2. Replace switch if meter indicates no continuity.
With switch plunger retracted, attach test leads to pins 3 and 4. Replace switch if meter indicates no continuity.
With switch plunger retracted, attach test leads to pins 5 and 6. Replace switch if meter indicates no continuity.

1994 dodge dakota tail light + brake light wiring harness


Only with the head-lights on? What about with just parking lights? And I assume that means it doesn't do it unless the lights are on? My first guess would be either a bad ground at the left (drivers side) tail-light, or possibly a 1156-type, single-filament bulb being inadvertently placed in the socket that calls for a 1157 double-filament bulb. That may not be your problem, but what that does is makes a short from the tail-light power to the brake-light/turn-signal filament in that bulb.
One thing to do too is check the turn-signals to see if they work properly with and then without the lights on. Make sure it isn't the tail-light filament flashing. It may flash, but won't be as bright as the proper filament is.
I hope this begins to help, and I'll watch for a response.

1994 dodge dakota brake light ground location


The ground wiring on newer vehicles is a little complicated. Older cars, the ground would have been to the body around the tail-lights, but these have a ground wire in the harness and is connected to the turn-signal switch, and other sources. I don't think you have a ground problem. Does the fuse blow as soon as you press it into the fuse-block, or when you step on the brake? I believe you have a dead short somewhere, possibly a pinched turn-signal wire close to the tail-light assembly. Brake lights work through the turn-signal wires from the turn-signal switch on the steering column. That's how you can have one side blinking for turn while the other side stays on for brake. I'm kind of shooting in the dark here because I don't know what all you've done. If you replaced the turn-signal switch in the steering column, you may have pinched a wire or something there. Another thing, if the fuse doesn't blow as soon as you press it in, will both turn-signals work as long as you don't press on the brake? If you can provide a little more information, I might be able to help you more. One last thing....Have you replaced tail-light/turn-signal bulbs? If so, be sure you used the right bulb. You should only have two bulbs, one for back-up lights and one 1157-type combination for tail-lights and turn-signals. I have seen people use a single contact (1056) bulb in place of a 1157, which creates a short from brake/turn-signal back into the tail-light circuit. I do have a 1994 Dodge Dakota.

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 ?
