According to the owner's manual for 2009 on pages 464-65:
(1) open the liftgate
(2) remove the two fasteners from the inboard side of the taillight housing.
(3) insert a trim stick between body panel and outboard side of the taillight housing with one hand and grasp the flange on the inboard side of the taillight housing with the other. use the trim stick and hand pressure together to disengage the taillight housing from the vehicle.
(4) rotate the bulb's electrical connector 1/4 turn counterclockwise (lefty loosey) and remove it from taillight housing.
(5) remove the bulb from the connector socket and install replacement bulb.
(6) install the bulb and connector assembly into the taillight housing and rotate the connector 1/4 clockwise to lock it in place
(7) reinstall the taillight housing and fasteners.
don't be surprised if you crack a fastener or two. i hope this helps--good luck. jono

    Don't mind cracking a fastener but don't want to crack a housing .
    Dealer wanted $ 18.00 to fix bulb,don't know how much a housing cost but has to be more !!

SOURCE: brake lights don't work on my 04 dodge durango

get yourself a cheap multimeter from a store like radio shack etc. with someone pressing the brake check at the socket to see if you have any power. remember it is DC volts not AC.. if you dont have any power check the grounds, there are a few, under the truck, and under the hood by the engine,if that doesn't work, you can try popping the rear covers off at the back and you might have loose wires, give a light tug on the wires and see if any pull away from the body.... look close at the bulb plug, you can also have a loose wire there or a broken ground tab... hopfully this can help you... if you have any more of a problem let me know...

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.

SOURCE: 2004 dodge ram 1500 rear brake light out how to replace?

Well once the tail gate is open and you take out the 2 screws on the light fixture . the light assembly shall pivot towards the outside of the box. some manipulating but the assembly shall come out.
The bulb needs a simple twist and pull .... Plug and play..

SOURCE: 2009 dodge journey...rear brake

If the e-brake cable is attached to caliper the piston is threaded. I use a very inexpensive tool i bought at the parts store . you will need to turn and press the piston at the same time. be aware that the two different sides are threaded oposite of each other.If the e-brake cable is not attached to caliperr the a c clamp should do the job.

remove the wheel after supporting the car,with a jack stand, then you remove the two bolts that holds the brake caliper then remove the old pads then you push back the caliper piston with a clamp or a big channel lock pliers replace the new pads and after you did the two front wheels start your car and before moving pump up the brakes properly

Replaced brake pads on 2009 Dodge Journey, but now when the brakes are pressed the caliper won't engage.


Well you need to check your fluid level on the master cylinder first. Then I suggest that you bleed the brake system. Always start bleeding from the wheel furthest away from the master.
