    Found it, a blown fusable link under the hood. But it was not visably burned off. The wire had burned out inside the insulation. Thanks to your advice I had a place to start and a place to go. I could not have solved this as fast as I did if it were not for your help.



    Thanks again,



    Scott

Hi again,

Run a new mains B+12 from the battery + terminal/post, tape it to the original harness, through the firewall, under the dash, up the steering column and to the "B" terminal of the IGN switch. It would seem that you have a multiple electrical issue and perhaps that is what the dealer is referring to as "cost more to actually find the problem" you mentioned in our Live Session.

Installing a new mains B+12 would be easier/faster than tracing the old one.

The flasher unit is located under the dash, near the steering column. This could also be caused by a faulty ground wire. Check the wiring for broken, bare, or loose wires or connections.

its possible the switch on the e/brake unit broke, take a flashlight and locate a single/double wire that goes to the e/brake assembly (this is the piece you depress with your left foot) and look to see if the wire is broken or the switch the wire goes to is broken.

No brake lightd on 1996 dodge caravan


You might have a bad break light switch. It is in the break pedal area. If you probe the wires on the switch one should be battery voltage. If no voltage then the problem is most likely a fuse. I don't know exactly which fuse it is. If you have power at the switch then check the other wire and see if it has battery voltage when you press the break pedal. If you have power when you press the break then there is a problem with the wire going back to the lights or the circuits for the directional sighal/emergency circuits because they are also using these lights. I hope this helps you to at least define the a possible cause.

No brake lights of blinkers 1990 dodge dynasty


While not likely, it is possible that the light bulbs in both sides are have bad filaments. Turn on ignition key (but don't start engine). Then turn on parking lamps (first detent or "click" on headlamp switch). Walk around car and look for illumination on front parking lamps and rear tail lights. Turn on the right turn signal. Are those (right hand) lamps now changing brilliance? Try the left turn signal in the same manner. Are those (left hand) front and rear lights changing briiliance? Take note of any positions that did NOT change briliance when the turn signals were activated. If NONE changed briliance, you either have a bunch of bad bulbs (unlikely) or a bad flasher (more likely) or a bad turn signal switch (most likely) or perhaps wiring problems (possible if the car has been in a collision or has been "worked on" by some "non-expert" mechanic). Check the action of the emergency flasher control switch located on the steering column (facing up). Pushing it in (down) should result in the button going to two different heights alternately (low, high, low, high). You could just have bad flashers or corroded flasher contacts! Good luck!
