Question about Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

I posted a question yesterday about my 2001 Dodge Dakota (brake lights and flashers not working, bulbs and fuse okay). Not sure how this system works, but I paid 9.95 for the premium service and expected to find some replies today in my inbox. Haven't gotten a single reply.

    Apparently your question did not post. as you would have gotten plenty of responses. probably not many worthwhile. your turn signals are inop also or just 4 way flashers?

Hello;
Your brake light switch is probably the culprit here. It is located on the brake pedal where the rod attaches from the master cylinder. Check for continuity on and off as well as voltage at the plug in. Hope this helps;
Thanks;

Brake lights 1990 dodge Dakota don't work is there an in line fuse that I am missing


Check the switch on the brake pedal first, then if you have power to it and power goes out when pedal is pushed you probably have a broken wire under the chasis

1998 Dodge Dakota blinkers stop working changed flasher now brake lights, blinkers, and hazard lights will not work.


Follow the flasher wiring to fuse box and locate the fusible link. Looks just like the wire but softer exterior and it's a fuse able wire that can break down. Should be along the driver fender under hood.

2001 dodge 2500. Rear brake lights will not work. Center brake light works, blinkers, flashers and tail lights work. No fuses blown.


obviously first check the bulbs. If they are fine, check that a brake light connector is not diconnected. I have seen it once. The connector was used to power an accesory on the rear instead. Also, the connector or bulb sockets could be rusted or loosly connected. Hope this helps.

I own a 2001 dodge dakota 4x4, my brake lights wont work, I have park lights, turn signals, back up lights, even 4 way flashers, I replaced the brake unit on the brake pedal, and checked all fuses, they...


Hi,

When you say you checked the fuse, was this just a visual check....or did you try replacing the fuse the a new one? Sometimes a visual check doesn't show minute breaks in the fuse wire, which gives a false appearance that the fuse is fine.

When the fuse is ok, this problem normally relates to the brake switch (mounted to the brake pedal). When this switch is replaced, you should always use a multimeter and check the switch is operating correctly when touching the brake pedal.

If the switch is ok, then suspect a faulty relay (if applicable to the Dakota).


Cheers,

1990 DODGE DAKOTA - HEADLIGHTS, TAIL LIGHTS, BRAKE LIGHTS NOT WORKING, BUT HAZARD LIGHTS DO WORK! ALREADY CHECKED BULBS AND FUSE. THEY'RE OK. CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHY HAZARD LIGHTS (ONLY) WORK!


Hazzards run off a flasher , try a new light switch and see if that helps .......there is also the chance the plug comming thru the firewall is loose . Not common but I have seen it do some simillar things

Brake lights out; bulb, fuse okay


Sounds like you need to replace your brake light switch.  It is located on your brake pedal and you should be able to pick it up for around $20-$30 at your local parts store.

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.

Brake lights don't work


Hello
Welcome to FY
There is a switch under the dash at the brake peddle, this is a place to start, if there is power here, and no brake lights i would replace the switch.
there is a fuse for the power to the switch.
