If it shows brakes it might be because you need new brake pads do not ignore this light. Have your brake pads and rotors checked out or you will be spending a lot of cash later on.

Breaklightes wont work


It is most likely the problem is with the brake light switch above the brake pedal arm. Check for power there with a 12 volt test light. Without the brake pedal pressed one side of the switch will light the test light, when the brake pedal is depressed both sides of the switch connector will be hot. Let me know what you find. You can buy a 12 volt test light at any auto parts store for about $5

My brake lights wont work.I have replaced bulbs,& the brake switch and checked the fuses and relays. Still wont work. They are the only lights that aren't working.


You are now looking at circuit tracing. Start at the brake light switch. Got power there? (get a circuit testing light, they're not expensive, looks like a screwdriver with a point instead of a blade, and a wire coming out the end)
If power to the switch, then check at light with brake pedal pressed. Power there? likely bad ground at light.
No power? wire from switch to lights broken.

Lowbeam headlights wont work, brake lights are out and check engine light is on...changed th dimmer switch, no luck


For the low beam problem, Swap relays 45 & 46 in the underhood fuse panel. Relay 46 is for the Low Beams. If that fixes the light, replace the relay that cam out of position 46.
Since the high mounted brake light is working, that indicates that the brake switch is good. You need to check the bulbs in the rear tail light assembly, if they are good, check fuse #34.

I own a 2001 dodge dakota 4x4, my brake lights wont work, I have park lights, turn signals, back up lights, even 4 way flashers, I replaced the brake unit on the brake pedal, and checked all fuses, they...


Hi,

When you say you checked the fuse, was this just a visual check....or did you try replacing the fuse the a new one? Sometimes a visual check doesn't show minute breaks in the fuse wire, which gives a false appearance that the fuse is fine.

When the fuse is ok, this problem normally relates to the brake switch (mounted to the brake pedal). When this switch is replaced, you should always use a multimeter and check the switch is operating correctly when touching the brake pedal.

If the switch is ok, then suspect a faulty relay (if applicable to the Dakota).


Cheers,

Just had a similar problem. Brake (stop) lights and horn didn't work. Couldn't find mention of stop lights in fuse chart. Found horn fuse to be slot 21 in the engine fuse block (not the fuse block in car interior). Replaced 15A fuse and all now ok.
