Brake light system runs through the directional signal switch. I would not overlook this possibility. Also look for the simple fix. Is power to the bulb? If yes, the bulb is bad or bad ground. Look for blown fuse.

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.

My 1994 dodge dakota blows brake light fuse, replaced sw and still blows fuse after 2-3 times I push on pedal


You'll have to disconnect the lights to track down the short. It could be one of the lamp sockets, or something in the wiring, or in the turn signal switch.

I have back lights but no brake lights on a 1994 dodge dakota. It is something under the dash. I dont have a wiring diagram to look at. where can i get a wiring diagram for free and what could be the...


more than likely it will be a faulted brake light switch...located on your brake pedal itself.....closer towards the firewall.. easiest to buy a chiltons manual...or possibly ask your neighborhood auto repair shop for the wiring schematic for your brake light switch.....hope I helped!!!

I dont know which is the fusible for the lights.


Not sure about the colt - but not other dodge has fusible links - all others use cartridge (flat, 2-prong) fuses.

Yours are identified on the fuse cover plate.
