Asked by Feb 08, 2016 at 08:51 AM about the 1996 Dodge Ram 2500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

when i shut the ignition off on my 1996 cummins, the tail lights stay on. when
the pickup is running, the brake lights are on as if my foot was on the brake
pedal, when i turn my blinker on the lights go back to normal untill i switch my
blinker off. any suggestions?

1 Answer

The problem is on the arm of the pedal there is a sensor. This sensor gets loose or out of place so when your foot is off the brake the pin on the sensor doesn't get pushed in all the way and it won't read.
