Question about 1994 Dodge Dakota Club Cab

1 Answer

My headlights on my 94 dakota work fine for a while on brights, but then just the headlights start flashing/flickering. Parking lights and brake lights are fine. It will also flash/flicker in dim lights but it takes longer for that to happen than in brights. Thanks for any and all help!!!!!!

    Thanks for commenting on this problem. It took me a lot of time and looking at a lot of wiring, but I fixed this problem about a year ago I guess. It was the ground wires under the hood on the driver's side fender well. There was a splice where like 4 ground wires spliced to one that led towards the battery. At the splice those wires had corroded and gotten wet I am sure. GFS I heard was the technical term used for the "Green Fuzzy Stuff" that I saw on the copper wires. All I ended up doing was cutting back an inch on each wire where the corrosion was not present in protected wire. Cut the coating off there and re-spliced the wires there. I also electrical taped the heck out of the new splice area also. Hope this helps someone else!!! So far it has solved my problem.

I just had this problem. There was a screw loose on the hi-beam switch. You have to take off the plastic cover on the steering column to get to it. Really simple to fix yourself (5 minutes tops). 4 screws and the turn of a small wrench. Free if you do it yourself, $600 if you take it to the dealer.

1994 dodge dakota my headlights and tail lights and brake lights don't work my abs and parking brake lights are on my dash lights don't work either I replaced the headlight switch and still no


These are all different circuits. The brake lights are on a 10amp fuse - the headlights are on a 50amp fuse - and the parking and dash lights are on a 20amp fuse.
Do you have power going into the headlight switch and the brake light switch ?

1993 chevy silverado parking lamps go of when i turn on headlights, signal lights flicker when i press on brake.


Yes I would look for a ground circuit problem. I would look at the ground wires for the headlights first. Even run a new ground wire for the tail lights to see if it helps.
Could be a ground connection for the body to frame or body to battery.

My instrument panel, parking lights, and taillights flicker simultaneously. they are all ran off the 'park lamp relay' on my 2002 dodge dakota. my headlights are fine. the conflict is intermittent and...


relay coil may be a bit weak and is sharing power with the headlight relay. Try swapping the relay with the horn relay or another similar one that is non-essential to operation of the car. If that doesn't work, you may have a loose wire on the headlight switch or at the relay socket.

When brakes are applied parking and dash board lights come on.when headlights are on,brake lights and tail lights do not work.very first symptom was an intermittent tail or brake light out indicator...


you might have an open ground wire on your brake/tail lights .. when you apply the brakes then power would flow thru the brake light (not see ground) so would then provide power backwards thru the parking light (common ground open) to all the other things connected to the parking lights .. like the other parking lights and dash ... when you turn power on to those things (headlights on) then there is 12 volts on both sides of the light .. thats why the lights quit working ... if the missing ground is the problem then most of the lights that are improperly turning on should be at a lowered brightness level.. interesting problem .. its also possible to have a brake light bulb that has the common ground open inside or not making connection with its socket .. i would start by removing the brake lamps and see if the problem goes away .. if it does look for a broken ground or damaged lamp ..

Headlights won't go on; brights, parking lights OK


Hello,I see you have a problem with your low beams inoperative.It sounds as if your multi function switch has either gone bad. If you will dim and brighten your lights the switch may go back to working. You have to shake it in all directions. If they come back to working you will want to replace the switch as soon as posible on this car. Please rate this answer, Thank you.
