What goes wrong with abs brake module in 99 dodge ram 2500 diesel truck


It isn't often we get enough information to make a diagnosis, but I think we can in this case.
You have a break light switch under the dashboard that is plastic, and has a "plunger" button.
When you press the brake pedal, that allows the plunger button to extend, which closes contacts inside the switch, and makes the brake lights come on.
If and when that switch either breaks or gets loose, the plunger will stay extended, and the brake lights will stay on, discharging the battery.
God bless your efforts to see & fix this.

Wont turn over has new battery and starter


Add oil. Check your Brake lights. If they do not work, the problem with starting is the brake safety switch. You are required to put your foot on the brake pedal to start your car.

If the brake safety switch is broken or knocked loose of the holder on the brake pedal lever, you will not get the release signal to engage the starter.

I have a 84 mustang xl. I think that the problem is electrical but im not sure. The battery has a charge, but it wont turn over, and i dont even have lights, my car wont start what could the problem be?


Could be a broken or disconnected battery cable. If you are sure that the battery has a full charge, and the battery is connected properly (tight clean connection at the terminals) and the lights do not go on (including the brake lights when you step on the brakes) then there is a bad connection at the battery/terminal/cable for certain.
