Question about 1996 Dodge Caravan
Working on my daughters 96 caravan, she doesn't have owners manual, of course. No brake lights, except for the rear window 3rd brake light. I replaced the bulbs, still don't work. Have no idea where fuse box is? Any other ideas, if not fuse box?
I also concur on the bad break light switch. Had one go bad myself. Check fuse first then go to the switch. Attached to the back side of the break pedle. Turn 1/4 turn clockwise or counterclockwise and remove. unplug wiring harness. install new switch.Easy to replace. will take you 5 min or less.

You might have a bad break light switch. It is in the break pedal area. If you probe the wires on the switch one should be battery voltage. If no voltage then the problem is most likely a fuse. I don't know exactly which fuse it is. If you have power at the switch then check the other wire and see if it has battery voltage when you press the break pedal. If you have power when you press the break then there is a problem with the wire going back to the lights or the circuits for the directional sighal/emergency circuits because they are also using these lights. I hope this helps you to at least define the a possible cause.

Check all the fuses, I have seen a wierd situation where the third brake light worked, but not the regular brake lights...replacing the blown cigarette lighter fuse fixed this... although it really shouldn't have.
