Question about 2003 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

My Stop lights are not working.

I tried replacing the bulbs and the brake switch. I think the switch was bad now on my instrument panel im getting an error code saying there is a possible brake hydraulic system malfunction.? How can this be corrected and would this cause my stop lights not to work. Is it also driveable?

The brake system error code is for a faulty master cylinder. check the cylinder function and check your brake fluid level as well. the master cylinder is located on the fire wall directly in line with the steering wheel under the hood. the brake fluid reservoir is located and attached to the master cylinder on top. check the master cylinder and fluid thoroughly.

Concerning the brake lights, you will need to inspect the wiring harness in the trunk or back hatch. make sure the brake light wiring harnesses is in good condition. check the bulb housing as well.

replace the brake light wiring harness if found to be faulty.

    I would not drive this vehicle with a faulty brake system at all. this could be dangerous and costly.

    Inspect the brakes and lines and master cylinder thoroughly.

    pull the clip off the back side of every brake light and, use a volt meter to test every cooper contact inside the connector clip. if the connector clip doesn't register voltage when you press the brake pedal, this will confirm wiring harness failure. test each brake light connector clip this way.

Rear stop lights (lower) won't come on when pedal depressed, BUT the high mount stop light does come on. Changed the bulbs - no go, the old ones did not look bad. All other rear lights work fine. ...


If all bulbs are known to be good, check fuse for brake lights (stop lamp fuse). If fuse is ok, go to next step
Next step- Does this Camry have a display in the instrument panel that indicates when a brake light is out? (not sure, check owner's manual)
If so, you may have a defective brake lamp sensor. Its mounted in the trunk on the right side. It may be blue, black, brown or yellow and may need to be unsnapped or unscrewed to remove. It will say on its cover what it is. You will need the number off of it to get the proper replacement. They run about $400.

BRAKE AND TAIL LIGHTS DON'T WORK. HAVE REPLACED BRAKE SWITCH AND LIGHT SWITCH. NO CHANGE. LIGHTS ARE GOOD, CAN HOT WIRE AND RUNNING LIGHTS WORK. ALSO WHEN HOT WIRED DASH LIGHTS COME ON


Hi.

Test with a voltmeter the contacts to the fuses for tail lights and brake lights. If there is no power getting to fuses from instrument panel, and switches had already been replaced, then it is a wiring problem from switch to fuse box, otherwise from fuse box to lights. the defective wiring must be repaired or rebuilt.
Regards.

My brake (running lights) dont turn on only when i step on the brake. nor my licesne plate work nor my gauges lights work. i got new bulbs for my brake light.


First, your instrument panel lights. Make sure to check the knob on the dashboard to the left of the instrument panel which controls
the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Push the knob to get it to pop out. Turn the knob to adjust the brightness.
If that is not the problem, go to your fuse boxes. Check those in the interior fuse box (left kick panel, below the dash--fuse chart on the cover) and those in the engine compartment fuse box (far upper left as you face the car). If, after you replace anything that has blown, it blows again, that would suggest a short somewhere in the system.
If you don't find any blown fuses (and I think you will) then it's time to go to the light bulbs. The tail light bulbs are accessed from inside the trunk. The license plate bulbs are just above the license plate and are accessed by removing two screws that hold the fixture in, then taking off the click plate and removing the bulbs.
Hope this is of some help.

Brake Lights do not work and hazard button is stuck


I could not tell you how many times people have brought their cars into my shop and tell me that they had already checked all fues and they are OK, then I check the car and find a blown fuse or a fuse that is completely missing.

Your dash (Instrument Cluster) illumination lights are powered by the "PARK LP" fuse in the underhood fuse panel - it is fuse number 37 and should be a 20 Amp fuse. If this fuse is blown, your Park lights on the exterior of the car will also not be working. If they are working and your dash lights are not, then the problem is probably in your headlamp switch.

Your Brake lights are powered by the "STOP LAMP" fuse in the instrument panel (IP) fuse block it is a 15 Amp fuse.

Your Hazzard lights are powered by the "HAZZARD" fuse in the (IP) also a 15 Ap fuse.

If both of these fuses are good, then the most likely problem with your brake and hazzard lamps is the multifunction (Turn Signal) switch.

What any of the above has to do with replacing your window regulators remains a mystery.

No, but that's probably where your problem is. The wires get the hell beat out of them by stones, and then they short out and cause problems. I would take a look at it.

ljones, Did you check the "VEH stop" fuse in the left side instrument panel fuse box. There are 3 stop light fuses, 1 for all the stop lights located in the under hood fuse box. 2 in the left side IP fuse box. 1 for the upper stop light and 1 for the lower stop lights. The fuse box in the IP is where the upper and lower stop lights split. Let me know.
