Check the brake switch. It is located done by the brake pedal. The power goes from the fuse, through the brake switch, then to the bulbs.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge neon tail lights inop

looking at your schematics and , you say tail lights don't work , you didn't mention if front parking lights and license plate lights are working , they all come from the same source , a black /yellow wire , a good clue if front work and rear don't , please advise .if fronts work then you have a open circuit somewhere between junction S118 (near breakout for left headlamp) and rear sockets.

How do I fix brake lights on my 2001 Dodge Ram? I have tail lights but no brake lights. I checked the fuse & its not blown.


do the signals lights work at the back if so then it sounds like you have a bad brake light switch or its out of adjustment. the brake lights and the signal lights work the same bulbs but are controlled by different circuits. the switch is located under the dash at the base of the steering colume were the brake pedal pushes against the switch.

Tail lights/turn signals and driver brake lights work, passenger-side brake light doesn't


Find a multimerter or an ohmmeter and someone to work it and test the socket to see if electricity is getting to the bulb. Someone will need to push on the brake pedal whilst someone else tests it.
Sometimes a wire can break, or sometimes a metal contact inside the socket can go bad, or can bend in such a manner that the bulb no longer contacts it. Also, sometimes new bulbs are defective.
Be blessed.

Check the brake fuse in your dash's fusebox. Since the turns work, you know the bulbs are good, unless your Neon has separate brake lights. If the fuse is good, bulbs are good, then check for power at the brake light switch on the upper portion of the brake pedal. Should have 12 volts there all the time. Use a testlight or voltmeter to check. Good luck.

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.

Right brake light out; tail light works fine


most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine

I would guess the brake fuse ( this does not use the same fuse as the tail lights/blinkers) or the ground for the brake light bulb.
