Brake lights won't turn on.


Asked by Feb 05, 2014 at 08:00 PM about the 1985 Dodge Ram Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Directional are OK, Flashers are OK, running lights are OK.  The stop-light switch is spring
loaded and seems to be OK with good contact.  Fuses in glove box are OK.  What did I
miss with my 1985 Dodge B-350 van???  I Love my van, it's a real work horse.

Is one of the wires broken at the brake light switch or bulbs blown for brake lights? Bad ground in wiring at the rear for brake lights.

I will check the ground for the Stop lights at the rear. All the bulbs are good to go.

Don't forget to look for a broken wire at the switch too.
