Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have a handful of different things going on. The turn signals aren't going to be related to the headlamp not working if both front and rear are not working, but if it's just the front not working then a loss of ground could be causing all issues.

The most likely cause for lights not working would be the bulbs themselves and the first step will be to check the bulbs or replace them with known good ones. Has any testing been done or the bulbs replaced?

I swapped all the left with the right. No change

Is it just the front turn signal that isn't working?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No, front, side, and rear inop. Left headlight inop/high-beam works. Left DRL f/r work. L back-up and brake lights good.
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 2 years ago

Do you have a test light?

Did the front and rear turn signals stop working at exactly the same time?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have test equipment. I bought the van with lights inop.
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 2 years ago

Can you start by seeing whether it's power or ground you're missing at the turn signals?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have power to the lamp connectors. The left headlight low beam works, but is dim. I replaced all left side bulbs f/r and only the right side flashers f/r work. Both high beams. parking, stop, backup, and license plate lamps work.
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 2 years ago

Is ground poor then?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I cleaned all grounds. Ohmed good. There's only 8.5 volts at the connector. Also, the left headlight only works when the spade is put on the lamp with the headlight switch on. If spade is connected, then switch to on, it doesn't come on.

I'm a full time tech and at work this morning, I'll get back to you as quickly as I can.

The idiot light only comes on after attempting to use left turn signals. The last 2 mornings, the dim left headlight has worked in DRL, but goes out when switch is turned to running lights or on.
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 2 years ago

With one meter lead on the positive battery post, the meter set on 20v DC and backprobing the low beam wire with the low beams turned on and dim, what does the meter show?
