Check your fuses.
dodge 2001 Dakota brake lights won't burn Check the fuses. If the fuses are okay check the brake light switch.
open fuse box, pull fuses until you find the one that is burned out. then replace that fuse. VOILA! brake lights work again. I think all dodges have a diagram of the fuses in the fuse box cover just find the brake fuse and replace it.

Inspect all fuses and replace blown ones May be separate circuits (multiple fuses)
