If the bulbs are good I would suspect the Brake light switch.

Brake Light Switch: Testing and Inspection
The brake lamp switch can be tested with an ohmmeter. The ohmmeter is used to check continuity between the pin terminals.
Switch Circuit Identification
- Terminals 1 and 2: brake lamp circuit
- Terminals 3 and 4: RWAL/ABS module and Powertrain Control Module (PCM) circuit
- Terminals 5 and 6: speed control circuit
Switch Continuity Test
NOTE: Disconnect switch harness before testing switch continuity.
With switch plunger extended, attach test leads to pins 1 and 2. Replace switch if meter indicates no continuity.
With switch plunger retracted, attach test leads to pins 3 and 4. Replace switch if meter indicates no continuity.
With switch plunger retracted, attach test leads to pins 5 and 6. Replace switch if meter indicates no continuity.

Maybe a long shot, but iv replaced many turn signal switches for this exact reason. some GM, and Ford vehicles have the brake/tail lights wired thorough the signal switch on thier way to the back.
not sure about the dodge vehicles. goog luck

1999 dodge Dakota all lights work new bulbs new fuses better shows all good on back the tag light doesn't work or the park lights just on back have signals back up and break ????no juice going to bulb


That makes sense since the rear taillights and license plate lamps come from the same power source, which is different that the ones for the backup and brake lights. Here are two diagrams that show the electrical path for the lights from the battery/fusebox all the way to the lamps. Hope this helps!

Brake lights don't work, but fuses are alright


Check to make sure the button above the brake pedel is not stuck in when you hit the brakes. If that is free and working properly your multi function switch on the steering colum is probably bad. The brake light canceler can go bad in these causing no brake lights. The canceler cancels the brake light when the turn signal is on. but sometimes they go bad and cancel both brake lights all the time. So be sure and check to make sure the hazard button is push all the way in before changing the muti fucntion switch. Oh and check the bulb first too of course. Good luck

2004 dodge dakota. brake lights not working but bulb is good. taillights and turn signals are working. Is there a mechanical switch by the brake pedal to look for??


there is a switch above the brake pedal that turns the brake lights on when u depress the pedal, use a volt meter set to DC volts and check for voltage to the switch and out of it when the brake pedal is depressed, see p[icture of switch belowe364f34.jpg

I have no signals and when brakes lights are on, lose brake light to either side turn signal is set on


Hi!!

If you activate the turn signal switch and you step on the brake pedal, the turn switch (on the steering column) deactivates the brake light to make the signal light more visible. The bulb for the stop and turn lights is the same.

Turn hazard lights ON. If they don't blink, replace turn/hazard flasher, If one or more lights don't come on, replace bulb.

Check fuse and circuit wiring for broken or loose connections. If all looks fine, check following:

If front turn lights work fine, check brake/turn bulbs.

If turn lights come on but don't blink, replace turn signal/hazard flasher.

If front and back turn lights don't come on, replace switch on column.

Let me know how it worked out, Good Luck
