1998 Dodge Ram 2WD; My brake light stays on but

1998 Dodge Ram 2WD dually; My brake light stays on. I have replaced the brakes and they work good, but the light is still on. I'm wondering if there is a reset switch or something that turns off the light.

    I have a 98 Dodge Ram 1500 2wd. The brake lights are staying on and the ABS & Parking Brake warning lights are on my dashboard. When I pull up on the brake (towards the steering wheel) the lights go off, so I am thinking that it is some sort of switch that is not popping all of the way back out.

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.

SOURCE: speedometer intermittent and ABS/Brake light stays on

it sounds like it is the speedometer cable that goes from the speedometer gauge to the transmission is wearing out.unless you have done one of these before then i would suggest having someone do it for you.

I would still be suspect of the ABS module. Had the same thing happen on an 01 Tahoe.

Search the web for an ABS repair facility located in Russia, IA. They repair the module for $150.00 and give a 5 year warranty, which you can't get from the factory.
And, their website has troubleshooting guides to help you determine if for certain the module is bad or has a probelm.

You can remove the module and continue to drive the vehicle. Their turn around is as they state, and once I had them make the repiars, my Tahoe has been up and running great!

SOURCE: 1998 dodge ram 1500 2wd 5.9 eng. how to change

just drop the transmission pan to drain it and the filter is right there in the valve body,DON'T mess the band adjustment,they are only to stop the planetary gears so you can go into reverse,there is no such thing as adjusting bands! that went out with the fifties!

1998 dodge ram 2500, speedometer does not work


Have the system scanned for fault codes, I think you may have a defective VSS (vehicle speed sensor), but don't replace it before you have the fault code test run, a defective computer and or wiring to the VSS can also cause the same problems.

I have a 1998 dodge ram 3500 dually and I took the drivers side drum off to replace the pads & wheel cylinder & the pass-side has the e brake towards the rear of the truck & dside the e brake...


Yes the longer of the two pads go to the rear,it must go opposite of where cable enters the set up. Its done that way to insure the ebrake holds forward and backwards. Good luck

ABS and brake light on


When the abs light appears,the brakes reset to regular brakes,with out the anti lock,If for sure the brake liners are good,and the rotors,then it is a bad sensor on one of the wheels,a scanner has to be hooked up to find the correct sensor,on witch wheel is the problem.

Do the taillights work? If so it might just be the bulb. If not then the wiring is broke some where or loose.

Tail Lights stay on all the time.


under the dashboard on the drivers side. look at the brake pedal lever. there should be a switch attached. push switch in and twist to remove. then pull the button as far out as it will go. while holding brake pedal down reinstall switch. then pull pedal up to top. this will reset the brake light switch. if they stay on still, then just replace the brake light switch.
