Question about 2002 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

I had my turning signal, hazard and brake lights all go out at the same time. I had an extra brake switch from a neighbor that also has a 2003 Durango. Anyway, swapped that out and everything was still not working. The fuse for the Hazards and Turning Signals looked okay but I swapped it out anyway. Turning signals and Hazzards work now but still no brake lights. Tried putting back in the other brake switch and still nothing. I can't find a fuse for my brake lights under the hood or in the cab so I assume there isn't one. It just seems wierd that they all went bad at the same time and the hazards/turning signals was a blown fuse. Could a brake switch go bad and blow that fuse? Any ideas?

    Are you saying check every fuse with a meter to see if that is the fuse for the brake lights or are we looking for something else like a short. I have only found one other fuse that I think is brake related and that says Elec BR which I think means Electric Brakes. I swapped out a fuse for that and still nothing.

    It just seems a bit much to check every fuse. They are all labeled. For example, do you really want me to put a meter to the rear windshield wiper relay fuse to see if its good. I guess I don't understand what we are doing. There is a chance the brake switch my neighbor gave me is bad. He couldn't remember if he actually replaced it once or if he bought it and it turned out to be a different problem.

    If the Brake switch is bad, would only the brake lights not work, or would there be other problems. Also, if it went bad could that blow the fuse for the hazzards/signals? Like I said, they all went out at same time.

It seems that there is a fuse which is causing this fault,I would suggest you get a meter and test each fuse at a time,do not assume fuse is ok by just looking.Now if the brake lights work and your signal lights starts to play funny then test the flashing device which looks like a capacitor and from which you hear that click noise when your indicator is working.I hope that this would help you.There could also be a possibility that the brake fuse is making a close circuit and blows off the fuse.A meter is what you need here.

    If the brake switch is faulty then it might cause a fuse to blow off which in turn could be controlling your indicators.There could be a possibility that the switch is allowing electricity to the ground in some ways and hence blowing off a fuse.If I were you I would start by disconnecting the brake switch and look for the faulty fuse.Once replaced leave brake switch off and test indicators.If it works then try to bypass your switch by touching both wires and see if the brake lights goes on.If you succeed then you know switch is faulty.

No brake/hazard lights,have running/turn signal lights

Suggest you change hazard flasher 'can' first, then go to the hazard switch. I'm betting it's the flasher can.

No rear brake light / turn signals on 2001 Chevy Cavalier

The problem is the turn signal/headlight/hazard switch assembly on the steering column which the brake light wiring runs through. The part is easy to change and cost about $50 at most parts stores
