I would guess the brake fuse ( this does not use the same fuse as the tail lights/blinkers) or the ground for the brake light bulb.

Dodge ram 1500 wiring diagram


Three places to look. 1) Brake lamp fuse, 2) Turn signal switch and 3) the brake pedal switch. Brake light power comes from the fuse up to the turn signal switch down to the brake lite switch on the brake pedal and then on to the light bulbs. Start by putting the 4 way flasher on. If the brake lites flash, then the bulbs are good. That eliminated the fuse too. so the problem is the other two.

Left rear turn signal on dodge ram 1500 won't work. bulb replacement didn't help.


Just had a similar question last week, and the solution was a bad socket/bulb holder.
You might try and see if there is current in the brake light wire leading to the bulb holder.
I have used a jumper wire and a safety pin to test the wire behind the socket.
I pierced the plastic insulation of the brake light wire with the point of the safety pin, and either use a tester or even a good working bulb and a good ground wire.
Be blessed.

I have a 2002 dodge ram 1500 n I can't get my turn lights to work any help please!!!!!!!


if these are the turn signal lights check the fuses, if they are good try the bulbs if the bulbs work in another socket then you need to replace the the multi-switch that is located on the steering column.

2001 dodge ram 1500. Brake lights do not work.


Do the taillights work? If so it might just be the bulb. If not then the wiring is broke some where or loose.

I need to know the name of the part in my 95 dodge ram 1500 3.9 liter pickup that makes the brake lights work? The fuse is good and the light bulbs are good because the come on when the lights are turned...


Hello there, The name of the part you are looking for is called a brake light switch, Fairly simple to change and relativly inexpensive. It is located behind the top of the brake pedal. Just a thought for you, I would suggest replacing the tail light bulbs first because you can have running lights and turn signals but the brake portion is burnt out.

Good Luck and I hope this helps, Allen

Turn signals and hazard lights quit working on 2001 dodge ram


The only thing left to investigate is the signal switch itself. The brake light system runs through the signal switch so it can effect both systems. Start with the simple, like, is a wire loose? Look at the base of the steering column. Check plugs and such. I believe you'll see it's in that part of the system.

Good Luck
