I'm having problems with the brake light not working. The turn signals all work, the emergency flashers all work. I do not have a schematic and haven't been able to find one as of yet! Know of any quick fixes or checks I can do??
dodge dosn't have fuses for brake lights, and the petal switch is fine. my brake lights don't work
I am having the same problem on my 2002 Dakota. All the lights work except the break lights.

Sometimes there are 2 flashers, one for the 4-way emergency and the other for turn signals.
Little confused about brake lights turning on/but not flashing. There is a switch on the brake pedal lever or on the clutch lever depending if it has a manual transmission. This switch often gets hit by the drivers feet and dislodged or broken. If it is broken it can do weird things by routing electric to wrong places. Since you have brake lights it is less likely to be bad but worth a look.
Turn signal stalk. Can break in so many ways. One thing to try is to push the 4-way flasher off and on about 20 times. The internal contacts for the flashers share the emergency function. Using the 4-way button can re-shift the contacts back to normal.
Do you have brake and parkng lights? The turnsignal switch on the column is just designed to relay a path to the flasher and then it is designed to interupt the brake and some of the parking lights lights, which cause the flashing on and off. Double check fuses double check bulb socks and bulbs for good contacts. Does the 4 ways work? If the lights all flash then locate the turn signal flasher and switch with emergency flasher if possible to rule out relay. If those are all good and the emergency flasher lights work and bulbs, then you would have a problem with the turn signal switch. Hope this all helps
Brake lights run through the hazzard switch. There are known problems with this, and the multifunction switch. You may need to buy a new hazzard switch and OR the multifunction switch. Before you do that, check the pigtail that goes into the brake switch up by the fender, make sure it's not shorting out up there. Happened to me!
turn on the emergency flashers(e-flashers)if they work check the bulbs at the same time.if this is good then check the fuses.you may have a problem with the turn signal flasher needing replacing.this is a different flasher than that of the e-flasher,looks the same but a different flasher.usually located on or around the fuse panel under the dash.the brake light problem could be a misadjusted switch or a bad switch.the switch is at the base of the brake pedal and has two wires to it.one wire will have power all the time and the other wire will only have power on it when the brake pedal is pushed.if not then the switch will need replacing.check for broken wires at the switch as these sometimes break causing a problem.
Check your fuses of course,you probably did.Listen your not going to believe this,the wire at the brake light switch can be bad.sometines the wire can break inside the vinyl cover just a milameter.use a test light for presence of voltage at the switch and check a few inches back to see it voltage is present. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE VOLTAGE AT THE SWITCH!
