If it is a manual then it would be your reverse light switch, if it's auto then your neautal switch is worn seeing that you have check bulbs and wires already

SOURCE: no tail lights or running lights

Next step, replace the Power Distribution Module. It probably has a short in it also. Why in the hell anyone would think it was a good idea to put the fuse box with two circuit boards in it(not properly sealed) is beyond me. I wonder if they would take their lap top into the shower to see if it would still work. Please make a complaint about this poorly designed product at this site. www.nhtsa.gov Chrysler should take responsibility for this problem. I think they keep their company afloat with all the modules they sell.

SOURCE: 99 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 / nothing but parking lights,no flashers or brake lights......

I found the problem on my Dodge Ram van.. The button for the hazard lights was bad.. I tuned on the hazard lights and only had one side, so i jiggled it and the other side came on. Then I pushed in the hazard button to turn them off and proceeded to check the brake lights, the still did not work so I again jiggled the hazard button and whaaalaaa the brake lights would flicker on and off.. I have a piece of cardboard pushing the button to the side to hold pressure on it keeping my brake light connection until I can get me a new hazzard switch.. Hope this helps..

SOURCE: Right brake light out; tail light works fine

most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine

How do u disconnect the emergency brake on a 1987 dodge dakota 4x4


It depends on where the cable is stuck.
You can disconnect it at the connection points, you have a front, center, and two rear cables. But if the cable is stuck at one of the brake drums, disconnecting it at the front or center connector won't free up the brake shoes.

Hi,

When you say you checked the fuse, was this just a visual check....or did you try replacing the fuse the a new one? Sometimes a visual check doesn't show minute breaks in the fuse wire, which gives a false appearance that the fuse is fine.

When the fuse is ok, this problem normally relates to the brake switch (mounted to the brake pedal). When this switch is replaced, you should always use a multimeter and check the switch is operating correctly when touching the brake pedal.

If the switch is ok, then suspect a faulty relay (if applicable to the Dakota).


Cheers,

My revirse lights do not work


Really dont need to know color of wire for this system is simple. On the switch (left rear corner on transmission) there are three wires. one wire is power, one allows it to start in park or neutral and the other is for the reverse lights. If I remember correctly the two outer terminals operate the reverse lights. Find the power lead and jump to each of the other two to determine which is for the reverse lights. Likely you will find that the switch is bad and there is no wiring problem. Make sure that reverse lights have good grounds as well.

ck your clutch pedal switch if it is open circuit it won't let the starter engage you can unplug it and jump the the two wires if this doesn't engage the starter you have a bad starter relay and it is located in the fuse box under the hood

Back tail lights won't light up


check the bulbs, theyre probably the double filament bulbs and one can go out but not the other. If the bulbs are ok, check your fuses and tail light relay

1992 dodge dakota 3.9 4x4 no low beams and one high beam


Hi the first thing I check on for anyelectrical problem is a bad ground connection. Follow the headlight wires as far as you can, even when they disappear into a larger covered loom at random places, maybe even right next to each light, you will find a wire or several attached to ground, could be a inner fender, engine, etc.. sometimes a inner fender ground is just a selftapping screw, It may be rusted out or just loose. Headlights work through relays that are also located in the fuse boxes. I assume you have checked both fuse boxes, in the truck and under the hood, good luck, Chuck
