Question about 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab Sport

1 Answer

Hooked up brake controller box to the wiring harness that came with my 07 dodge 1500. The digital display lights up when you use the manual slide on the brake controller, but not when you hit the brakes. I think it is not getting any signal when the brake pedal is depressed. Is there a sensor that needs checked or is it just as simple as a fuse or relay?

The wiring also needs to be connected to the brake light switch. That's what actuates the brake box. You must just have a faulty connection if that's hooked up already. Check that connection to the brake light switch to the box. Has to be good continuity/connection.

I would guess the brake fuse ( this does not use the same fuse as the tail lights/blinkers) or the ground for the brake light bulb.

on the 93 there is a problem with the abs system. there are several things that could be wrong. if i remember correctly the module is behind the passenger side kick panel. you will find a single wire coming off the module. if you ground it then turn on the key it will flash the brake lights in the dash. count the flashes this is the code for the error. it will help in the repair. as for the second truck you have a leak that needs repaired.

I found the problem on my Dodge Ram van.. The button for the hazard lights was bad.. I tuned on the hazard lights and only had one side, so i jiggled it and the other side came on. Then I pushed in the hazard button to turn them off and proceeded to check the brake lights, the still did not work so I again jiggled the hazard button and whaaalaaa the brake lights would flicker on and off.. I have a piece of cardboard pushing the button to the side to hold pressure on it keeping my brake light connection until I can get me a new hazzard switch.. Hope this helps..

does the instrument panel lights come on when you turn on the park lights only (no headlights)? If not it could be the switch itself.

Your truck may have had the factory trailer tow package, but that did not come with a wiring connector in that year. There should be a wire harness under the rear of the truck near the center of the bumper with 7 wires of the following colors/characteristics -

Red/Orange - +12V Battery (Thick Wire) From fuse #8 (40A)
Black/Orange - Tail Markers (Thick Wire)
Light Blue - Trailer Brakes (Thick Wire)
Violet/Black - Backup Lights (Thin Wire)
Dark Green/Red - Left Stop/Turn - (Thin Wire)
Brown/Red - Right Stop/Turn - (Thin Wire)
Black - Ground - (Thick Wire)



Under the dash, the brake controller wiring should be -

Red/Orange - +12V Battery (Thick Wire) From fuse #8 (40A)
Black/Orange - Ground - (Thick Wire)
Light Blue - Trailer Brakes (Thick Wire)
White/Tan - Brake Light sense - (Thin Wire)

Hope this helps.

2008 dodge pu no rear turn signals or brake lights


you need to inspect wire harness @ rear and along frame rail , corrosion , damaged wire, bad connection, check for continuity, power, ground wires are extremely important . brake light switch could be at fault !!!!!!!!, power to both brakes & turnsignals must be determined , both of these circuits cross each other, see wire diagram

2002 dodge ram 1500 brake and parking lots went out


Both. If the running lights ( marker, tail, clearence, or parking) and brake lights are out since the rain, a tail light assembly is broken and filling with water enough to create a short to ground. If there's no broken lens, whitch normally only blows the bulb. Then, the problem lyes in the trailer light harness. the brown wire (tail) & green wire (left turn/brake or yellow wire (right turn/brake) must be bare exsposed that shorts to ground when wet. all the trailer wires could be smashed together damaged the plastic coating on them. no problem till water shorts to ground. The white wire is the ground wire make its not able to touch the other 3 wires or bare & wet. Tape wires seperate then replace tail/mkr fuse and brake fuse. That should do it.

My 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 cruise control will not turn on. I've checked the fuses in the fuse box on the side of the dash but they were all good. Another issue i have occasionally is the brake light


Probably neither.
The brake light switch could knock out the cruise.
You might check the computer for trouble codes, but you'll probably need a shop manual to get the test procedures for the cruise control.
