2008 should be under warranty, take it back to dealer.

With all of the electronics on vehicles today, seems like these sort of system failures are becoming commonplace.

You will need to remove the DRL module then headlights will operate normally.

SOURCE: Headlights won't turn on. Daytime running lights stay on.

My 2002 S10 had the same problem, I pulled off the bottom of the dashboard and bottom of the steering wheel cover (around 8 bolts). There's a plug on the left side behind the cruise control/high beam stalk with several wires attached to it. Turns out some of the wires had become brittle and moving the steering wheel up and down caused them to short. The four small wires for the cruise control all broke off. I pulled out the metal pins and reattached them to the wires, worked for a while...

I think you need to replace the Body Control Module (BCM), My newly replaced BCM (used) fixed my wiper problem but created a new problem which the left turn signal is not working now. Time to sell the van.

Where is the multifunction lever switch located on the 1999 Dodge Durango. this switch controls turn signals and flasher system.

In the steering column. The lever you move to activate your turn signals, high/low beam headlights, wipers and washers is part of the multifunction switch.

My windshield wipers will not turn off and I have no turn signals.

I think your combination switch is malfunctioning. The switches that control both the wipers and the
turn signals are built into the combination switch. And the headlight controls too on some cars.

Your car may have a switch that controls the wipers and the turn signals, but not the headlights.

But whether you have the type that controls wipers/turn signals/headlights or just turn signals/wipers Im not sure, you didnt mention the specific year and model. But you should replace the switch that controls your wipers/signals. They are expensive sometimes, especially if you have the combo switch that controls wipers, headlights and turn signals. But you can find one at a slavage yard for a lot less money than new.

But you should put the year/model of your car when you post a problem youre having. That makes it more likely that someone can help.

No brake light,no turn signals , no flasher lights...I have checked fuses for each and they are OK. Also all bulbs are OK. Any suggestions.

Your multifunction switch may be defective. Replace it. $39.99 at AutoZone
  • Combination switches operate wipers, directionals, horn, headlights and dimmers.
  • When not replaced, wipers, directionals, horn, headlights and dimmer, independently or as a group, will not function or turn off potentially causing safety issues.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!

I have no brake lights, the blinkers run really fast and if the headlights are on the blinkers will not run at all while braking. Any ideas?

Have the multi-function switch and its circuits tested. The multi function switch is the blinker arm and the components its attached to in the steering wheel column. The multifunction switch has to do with blinkers, cruise control, wipers, wiper spray, high beams and also tied in with headlight dimmers/daytime running lights(if applicable) and hazards usually.

A good place to start.

Turn signals quit working??

Good place to start is to check bulbs. Also, have multifunction switch and its circuits tested. The multifunction switch is the blinker arm, and the components it attaches to inside the steering column. Usually tied in with things like high beams, headlight dimmer/daytime running lights, wipers, cruise, etc.

My dash lights all go out when i try and put the turn signal on. which arnt working either. car runs fine otherwise.

Your turn signal switch is multifunctioning (controls cuise, wipers, dimmer, etc.). Your dash lights are wired into the same circuit (when you turn your headlights on, the dash lights should come on). Try replacing the turn signal switch there at your steering column. Takes about 20 minutes to install and around $60.

Electrical System Problems in '02 F250 Diesel

Does the truck have daytime driving lights ? Sounds like a short , maybe the switch inside the steering column . Turn signal , wiper , headlamp dimmer ,or multifuction switch . Without testing this is just a guess . Find a wiring diagram at there free , get yourself a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter an test the B+ volt into an out of the switch . moving dimmer from low to high an turning on the turn signals etc.... Suggest you watch a few videos on youtube for automotive electrical testing , how to use a wiring diagram etc.... disconnect circuits at the mutifunction switch .

Measure the resistance between multifunction switch C202a pin 44, circuit 44 (LB), harness side, and electronic flasher connector pin 1, circuit 44 (LB), harness side; and between multifunction switch C202a pin 44, circuit 44 (LB), harness side, and ground.
  • Is the resistance less than 5 ohms between the multifunction switch and the electronic flasher, and greater than 10,000 ohms between the multifunction switch and ground?

Carry out the multifunction switch component test; Refer to Wiring Diagrams Cell 149 for schematic and connector information.

  • Is the multifunction switch OK?
Yes INSTALL a new electronic flasher. TEST the system for normal operation.

No INSTALL a new multifunction switch; REFER to Section 211-05 . TEST the system for normal operation.
Testing the electrical circuits of all the system not functioning properly is how you go about finding the problem .

  1. Visually inspect the following for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.

    Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
    • Headlamp switch
    • Multifunction switch
    • Battery junction box (BJB) fuse 3 (30A)
