What should I do check first
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 2 months ago

I would check for power on the white/tan wire going to the rear brake lights in the back that are not working when stepping on the brake pedal. The rear tail lamp assemblies/sockets or bulbs may be burned faulty.

If there is no power on the white/tan wire going back to the tail lamp assemblies with the brake pedal depressed, then I would check the wiring as that would be the next most likely possible cause.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
