Sounds like either a headlight switch or a broken ground. Did you lose both the hi and low beams? Do your parking lights work? The headlight switch outputs to the hi/low selector on the column. If both hi and low beams are out I would check output voltage from the switch. Sounds ike that make be your issue. Good luck and let me know if I can assist further.

Check to see if the the fuse is good with a test light check headlamp switch for power and ground also the turn signal switch switch the high beams on and off 5 or 6 times kinda fast with headlamps in the on position and see if they flicker at all if they do replace multifunction switch(turn signal switch)make sure your ignition switch wiring isnt melted and do you have non factory installed trailer hitch wiring installed if so check all fuses again the aftermarket trailer harness will have a fuse in line with the harness not inside power distribution center (fuse box)

Trouble after replacing PCM on Dodge Dakota.

Yes the warning lights on the insturment cluster should lite when you turn the key to on . You know ,check engine light , ABS , air bag ,the cluster gauges should also do a sweep test . Does the vehicle have a anti-theft system ? The new PCM would have nothing to do with the lights . Try turning on the headlamps , do they work ?

Headlights not working

There's a relay in the headlight circuit. That and the fuse a common failure with headlights.
Try to locate the relay, It should be near the battery or the drivers side firewall.
Hope this helps.

95 Dodge Dakota headlights, taillights dash lights suddenly went out. Have turn signals and flashers, no brake lights. Replace 15 amp fuse under dash that was blown nothing, replaced headlight switch

Did you check for voltage at the 50 amp fuse circuit. Even if the fuse is good if no voltage on the fuse circuit, the circuit is still dead. There is a light green wire that carries voltage from headlamp switch to dimmer, is that wire hot with headlamp switch on?

There are wiring diagrams for free, just about everywhere, if you don't have one. Autozone .com has free wiring diagrams on vehicle repair guides link. You have to register your vehicle, year--make--model, all that good stuff. It's free.

The black wire with yellow tracer is voltage for tail lamps. With the headlamp switch on, any voltage on that wire? Use a test light to check. Also check fuse 14--15amp.

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 ?

99 dakota fog lamps wont work although headlamps still work.

Check the relay to the fog light, it's the fuse and relay box under the hood behind the battery. Take the relay out labeled fog light and switch it with an other relay for now just to see if it is the relay, it the fog light's work then it's the relay. If they don't work then it's the switch, good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
