The tail lights on my 2006 dodge grand caravan don't work. Any ideas as what could be wrong?


Check that the fuse is not blown and that there is no wiring fault. Otherwise check that the lights are not blown as well, and look at the following YT video to illustrate the removal of the light:

I have no brake lights in my '97 dodge caravan le but i have taillights


Have yoiu changed/checled the lightbulbs? (In other words,do your turn signal lights work? If the front turn signal lights work, but the rear don't, then turn on your four (4) way flashers. If the rear lights still don't work, then all the bulbs are bad. It is rare for all the bulbs to be burnt out at the same time, but it does happen.

If the turn signal/four way flasher lights work, then you probably have a bad brake light switch. However, first check your owner's manual to make certain there is not a separate fuse for these lights. If there is, then swap the fuse for the brake lights for another fuse (or relay) of the same size/amperage. (Facing the hood, the power relay box is located on the right side (usually) under the hood.)

The fuse box is located under the dash, on the driver's side of the car. Usually there is a plastic cover that has to be removed to access the underside of the dash, and then there is a plastic cover that has to be removed to access the fuse box. If you don't have an owner's manual, nprmally the fuses and power relays are normally marked on the plastic covers your remove ot access the fuses and power relays.

If the fuses/relays are good, then you have a bad brake light switch. This is located on a bracket just above the brake pedal. When you push the pedal down, the switch makes contact. Disconnect the plug to the switch, and jump across the plug contacts (not the switch) with a small piece of wire, or if a piece of insulated wire is unavailable, you can use a paperclip, you won't get schocked, just make certain that the paperclip does not come in contact with a ground while you have it plugged in to the plug for the brake light switch.

If the lights stil dont work, check for power to the plug for the brake light switch. If you have power to the plug, the turn signals and four-way flashers work, then my guess would be that you have a broken power wire (probably iside the steering column, or a bad turn signal switch. If the brake lights work whe nyou jump out the brake light switch, then the brake light switch is defective.

Rear brake lights do not come on , including the one in the door when brake padel is depressed


check the fuses in the fuse panel,if the signal lights are working at the back then the bulbs are good(have seen all tail lights burnt)then you will have to check the brake light switch at the base of the brake pedal.its a 2 wire switch.one wire should have voltage all the time and the other only when the brake is depressed.if the power is not going through the switch then the switch needs replacing.also check for broken wires at the switch also.this should fix the problem.if the third light is not working chances are the bulb needs replacing.

2000 Dodge Grand Caravan Brake Lights Out


Kristie, I don't know if you ever found a solution to this, but I have been having the same problem. I even took it to get repaired and they fixed it saying it was a relay. I think now that they just replaced the brake switch as well. Then, a few months after that, the left light went out. I have checked fuses, replaced bulbs and the brake switch. There is not much more to the system besides the wiring from the front to the back. I then decided to lodge the brake pedal so the brake lights were on, took the assembly out and twisted the light holder as if to take it out, then twisted it back and presto, the brake light came on! So I deduce there is a flaw in the design of the brake light assembly and that the contacts lose their connection the to contact ring of something of this nature. It only seems to affect the rake light, not the turn signals or running lights. Odd.Only time will tell how long this will last.
If you get this, or anyone else see's this, I hope it helps.

Brake lights won't work.


Check the brake switch. It is located done by the brake pedal. The power goes from the fuse, through the brake switch, then to the bulbs.
