Question about 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan

Stop lights do not work

While out and about I was told that my brake/stop lights do not work. The fuse is fine as are the bulbs. I figure there must be a faulty switch somewhere, but where ?

All brake lights stopped working at once. Fuses are fine, bulbs are fine, even replaced brake switch. Help!


Your brake switch signal is a input to a control module , front control module or TIPM. When it receives that input the module turns on brake lights . TIPM - totally integrated power module. Find a wiring diagram an test the circuit . An you need to read how the brake lights work , factory service information . It's not like the old days ,power to the switch ,step on the brake an power goes through the switch to the brake lights ,doesn't work like that . Could possibly have a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored in that module . Your best bet is to take it to the dealer or an independent ASE certified repair shop .

My inside dashboard lights and back break light suddenly stopped working so cant drive it at night. Its a 99 honda prelude. I've tried changing the light bulbs and the fuse but still not working.


If the dash lights are on the same circuit as the park lights. Chances are if no dash lights... no park lights. Unless the dash light dimmer switch is on the low position. Check park light fuse. If no brake lights... which are on a different circuit and you are sure the bulbs are ok check brake light fuse. If fuse ok, unplug brake light switch at brake pedal and cross the terminals with a jumper. If brake lights work, the brake switch is faulty. If still no brake light operation suspect a wiring issue

All fuses are good - brake lights, rear running lights work fine. but the reverse lights won't come on when put into reverse. Any idea what might be going on? As far as I know the bulbs are still good...


You will need to either replace or adjust your backup switch, it is located on the transmission next to the shifter. Hope this helps, thank you for using FixYa!

I cannot get my back up light or my brake light to work. my blinker light and my running light work fine. just the backup lights and the stop lights are giving me problems.


CHECK ALL BULBS IF BULBS OKAY,REASON REVERSE LIGHTS DONT WORK YOU HAVE FAULTY INHIBITOR SWITCH.FOR BRAKE LIGHTS NOT TO WORK,EITHER BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH FAULTY OR TURN SIGNAL BAD,BECAUSE MOST CARS NOW TURN SIGNAL SWITCH AND BRAKE LIGHTS SHARE SAME CIRCUIT.

My brake lights don't work and it's not the fuse. I don't know how long they have been off. I got pulled over and i was told they didn't work


first get a 12-volt tester and test the socket if the sockets are good check the brake light switch on top of the brake pedal itself and check all of the fuses too.

Rear Brake Lights not working, 3rd light is working


check the fuse for the stoplights. Even though the 3rd one is working it should be on a different fuse. With both of them not working even after you changed the bulb it would seem to lead to a fuse.

1992 Honda Accord LX Brake Light Switch Repair


Of course you can make this repair! I'm wondering about the faulty bulb that shorted out all the brake lights...not sure if that's what happened. Your brake light switch is located on the brake pedal, up above where your foot goes. It has a plug in connector which you unplug, then loosen the locknut where it attaches to the pedal.Put in the new switch, lock nut 1st, then plug it in. Note that the locknut is the adjustment point that determines when your brake lights go on. Adjust the locknut so that the brake lights go on when the pedal is depressed within 1/2 an inch (13mm)of pushing down on it. If the switch is adjusted without enough play (say 1/8 inch or less), brake lights may flicker on and off when you go over a bump.If over 1/2 inch, brake lights might go on only if great force on pedal is used (or not at all, yikes!).For good diagrams of parts check out South Bay Honda (hondapartscheap)web site. You enter the year, model, engine, and you can scroll thru tons of parts. If you have any more questions, do not hesitate to post it for me. countrycurt0
