2003 durango brake light not working


If only one brake light is out (mine was driver's side) and you've tried changing the bulb, then it might be a metal contact in the bulb socket in the light assembly. Looks like the hot bulb melts the plastic and lets the one or more bulb contacts sink into the socket and pull away from the base of the bulb, preventing electrical contact. A little coating of solder on the socket contact(s) gave enough height to contact the base of the new bulb and get the brake light working again.

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 1998 dodge ram 4x4 5.9 liter i have no brake lights or turn signals i changed the fuse it blows it as soon as i press the brake


there is a short somwhere in the harness for the lights and it wont effect untill you put postive power trough them by activating the brake light switch from pressing the pedal. check wires for melting overheating or shorts to ground or touching by the switch tailights and possibly a bad bulb socket or tail light housing.
