Did you check the brake pedal switch? Usually it is under the steering column were your brake pedal arm resting on it! Stepping on brake pedal makes the switch supply power to brake lights, check if its still working or wires been cut off or the connector got disconnected!

None of the blinkers work on my 1996 dodge stratus, all bulbs are good as the park lights and flashers work. I have three dead ports in fusebox under hood.


Guessed it's a V6. Trying to sort this out. If setting the headlamp switch to PARK turns on the park filaments of the front park/turn signal lamp and the tail filaments of the rear tail/stop lamps and the separate tail lamps, the park light circuit is good. If 20A fuse 6 in the power distribution center is OK, the combination flasher in the multifunction switch is receiving power. Power is directed to the turn signal lamps by operation of the turn signal/hazard warning switch. If the turn signals are not flashing, the combination switch may have failed or the turn signal flasher part of the combination flasher may have failed. Finally, the hazard warning switch causes the turn signal elements of the front combination park/turn signal lamps and the rear turn lamps to flash.

I have the left and right blinker figured out. I also have the parking lights and the reverse lights. Coming from the truck the black wire is parking Blue is reverse Yellow is driver blinker and green is...


"Brake," not "break."

Without knowing the year make and model it is impossible to be specific.

But I can say this: Many cars use the same filament (and therefore the same wire to the socket) for the brake and turn signal. That filament is on steady while your foot is on the brake, and the turn signal is not being used. Turn on the turn signal, and that filament is disconnected from the brake-light system by the T/S switch, but is connected by that switch to the T/S flasher.

I have a 2002 dodge ram 1500. I have rear break lights, reverse lights, and turn signals, but when I turn my headlights on there are no running lights - any ideas?


Check the hazard light switch. See if the switch works to flash the parking lights. Also there is a wealth of information here . Can't go wrong having it for instances like these.
