SOURCE: i have a 2001 vw passat. my parking lights went

disconnect the reverse gear switch located at the gearbox. It's a two pin Connector with two wires, one of them is BROWN, and th other BROWN with BLUE stripe along. Make a short connection between those two wires, easiest way is to do it by usin simple paper clip. Turn the ignition IGN to ON position. and check the reverse lights. If Lights are on, than you need to replace the switch that you just disconnected as it's faulty.

Update me about your progress and we'll solve this easily.

Good luck

Hello
The switch on the steering column is just the dimmer control for the headlights low and high beam settings, the switch that should have changed and the connector to it inspected for heat damage (and replaced in most cases) is the main headlight switch in the dash panel to the left of the steering wheel, this switch gets hot and the contacts on the switch and wire connector contacts to it overheat and cause the headlights to go out. This is a Very common problem with this design switch, it was corrected in 1999 with a newer design dial type switch. The headlight switch is cheap and easy to replace, to remove the knob and rod reach up on the back top of the switch and push the little button there, while pulling out on the rod, the rod will come out, the headlight switch is held in the dash with a nut over the threaded tube the headlight knob and rod go into. Replace the switch and the connector as one repair, if the connector is heat damaged and you just replace the switch the new switch will overheat and fail again within a short period of time, when you replace the connector cut ONE wire at a time, solder the connector on and use heat shrink tube to seal the connection, do not use electrical tape, the wires do get hot and the tape will come off, allot of current flows through the switch and if the hot leads short out you could have an electrical fire, take your time and do it right. The headlight switch is available in the aftermarket as well as the repair connector, but if you can't find a repair connector the dealer can supply one. My parts prices come from www.rockauto.com If you wish to buy from rockauto they send me discount codes because I am a regular customer, I have no affiliation with them just trying to save you money.

The black wire with yellow tracer is voltage for tail lamps. With the headlamp switch on, any voltage on that wire? Use a test light to check. Also check fuse 14--15amp.

These are all different circuits. The brake lights are on a 10amp fuse - the headlights are on a 50amp fuse - and the parking and dash lights are on a 20amp fuse.
Do you have power going into the headlight switch and the brake light switch ?

1998 dodge dakota break light is on in dash


Sounds like you need a brake job performed and the system completely checked over. Check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder, and also make sure your parking brake is not applied by pulling the parking brake release lever.
