First thing, make sure the fus is not blown. Then, If you look at the area where the brake pedal arm meets the firewall, there will be a connector that attaches to the pedal with two wires. If you un-plug this connector and use a wire to go across the terminals, you can check to see if the brake lights are on. If they come on with the wire in place, your problem is the switch. If not, it is a problem with the wiring. Let me know if this helps :)

I only have the 3rd brake light working what is wrong with the outher ones

Does your Durango have a trailer hitch/receiver and trailer wiring harness? Is it original equipment or aftermarket? Has your Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light come on recently? If so, read the error code(s) stored in the onboard computer. You may have a physical wiring problem or a circuitry problem. I think your Durango has relays (fuse-protected) associated with your brake lights. Check our owner's manual for the location of these relays and verify that they are working properly. If so, start checking the trailer wiring harness.

Where is the blower fan resistor located on a 2003 dodge durango

Under the dashboard on the passenger side. Next to the blower motor.

There's a wiring harness that plugs into it. Remove the plug, Remove the 2 screws holding the bad one in place and take the part out. Hold the new one in place while screwing the new one in. Reattach the wiring harness and you're done.

2003 Durango. Is the wiring for the brakes lights straight from the switch at the brake pedal? Just the right side works

if its a single taillight ie stop and signal light are the same then the stop light runs thru the signal light circuit in the steering column

Need to know brake wiring for 2000 dodge durango to hool to trailer

Depends on whether you have a set of trailer connecter wires, or if you have to tap in to the wiring for the lights on the car. I'm going to assume that you have several wires coming out of the Durango that are designed for a four wire trailer connector.

White - ground wire.
Green Right stop/turn
Brown - parking lights
Yellow - Left stop/turn

Here's a good explanation of other connectors, and some extra info.

Best wishes!

2003 dodge durango, fan willnot run

Have you checked the fans while running the A/C on both high and low speeds? If they don't kick on here, your relays are bad. If they do kick on, I would look into your Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (a two wire wiring harness leads into it and is located near your thermostat housing). If this sensor goes bad, it will not transmit the signal to the PCM telling it to activate the relays.

My Stop lights are not working.

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.

2003 durango brake lights stopped working

Something is being missed,start with checking the fuse for the brake lights. Then check the brake light switch for power in and out(when depressed).Your ground is intact so no power. If still nothing, remove the lamp in question and test the contacts. good luck. Don't forget to depress brake pedal while probing contacts.
