    we replaced the headlight switch and still had the same problem. as far as I know there has been no creative wiring. I was wondering if it might be a bad ground. once you ingage the light switch you have to push it back in a little then the ligts all work.

Brake light switch not engaging

Do you still have the old switch and are you sure that the hitch pin is in place holding the switch in the right position there might have been a nylon bushing on the brake pedal shaft that's missing if you press the pedal while looking at the switch and it partially moves this is the problem that switch is not to move and the rod should press in the switches plunger which activates the lights I'm going to try to find a photo watch for the next post

1994 dodge dakota my headlights and tail lights and brake lights don't work my abs and parking brake lights are on my dash lights don't work either I replaced the headlight switch and still no

These are all different circuits. The brake lights are on a 10amp fuse - the headlights are on a 50amp fuse - and the parking and dash lights are on a 20amp fuse.
Do you have power going into the headlight switch and the brake light switch ?

Cadillac lights won't turn on

No relay that I know of.
On 1970s models the headlight switch had a circuit beaker built into the switch for the headlight circuit.
If you have power to the headlight switch and nothing coming out of the terminal for the headlights the circuit breaker may have died.
You would need to replace the switch.
