Sounds like a short in the wire somewhere. Either wires are shredded somewhere and touching. Check exposed wiring for problems. Check all lights on that fuse circuit.

Hope this helps at least some. Good luck!

How do I fix a fuse that pops ever time I pull the light switch? 96 dodge Dakota no tail lights no side markers no license plate lightship. Has head lights turn signals brake lights reverse.


Sounds like you have a short that is going to ground. You can put a fuse in and have someone watch the rear lamps when you pull the light switch on. You can also check the bulb sockets by removing the bulbs. You could try a 5 amp heavier fuse (be careful only for a few seconds). Check the wiring for a weak spot as well. Try another light switch. I hope this helps.

My 1994 dodge dakota blows brake light fuse, replaced sw and still blows fuse after 2-3 times I push on pedal


You'll have to disconnect the lights to track down the short. It could be one of the lamp sockets, or something in the wiring, or in the turn signal switch.

'96 Dodge Dakota will crank, but won't run.


a bad crank sensor or dist pickup plate can cause this.... check the fuses in the fuse block under the hood for any blown ..... a bad auto shut down relay may cause it .....try putting a test light on the green and orange wire and see if it lights up when you try to crank it

If you have a trailer plug installed trace the wires to see if there is a bare spot or broken wire.If no plug then you need to check for bare wire or broken wire from tail lamp assemblys to where the wire plugs into main wireing harness.
