If the lights come on but do not flash then the flasher relay is defective, and needs replacing.

Check the easiest stuff first.

Check all your fuses at your fuse panel (AFAIK, it should be below the steering wheel, under the "Fuse access" panel.

Pop the panel off and check the fuses one by one to see if they are blown......Now, if you have missing fuses, that could be a problem....I know a lot of times people will "borrow" fuses for other accessories until they can purchase the right fuse, and will end up forgetting to replace the fuses :)

I found the following reference from a 1986 600 Owner's Manual.....it may or may not be the same fuses though! So use caution:

1: 20 amp yellow; hazard flashers

2: 20 amp yellow; back up lights, cornering lights, fan relay coil, auto load leveling

3: 30 amp C/B; power window motors, power convertable top

4: 30 amp green; A/C blower motor, heater blower

5: 20 amp yellow; park, tail, license light, side markers, display intensity, cavity 12

6: 20 amp yellow; stop lamps, dome light, map light, trunk/cargo compartment light, ignition switch key lamp time delay relay and light, power mirrors

7: 20 amp yellow; horn, horn relay, cigar lighter, glove box light, radio and clock memory, electronic chime

8: 30 amp C/B; power seat motors, power door lock motors

9: 10 amp red; radio and clock power

10: 20 amp yellow; turn signal lamps, heated rear window, console bin lamp, illuminated entry

11: 20 amp yellow; front windshield wipers and washers

12: 3 amp violet or 4 amp pink; cluster, A/C and heater control, heated rear window, ash receiver, console radio, message center illumination

13: 5 amp tan; fuel gauge, brake warning, engine warning, seat belt, voltage warning, message center, seatbelt chimes, speed control

14: 6 amp C/B; electric deck lid release, rear wipe/wash, liftgate rel.

15: empty

16: empty

And actually, when you yank that access panel off, shine a flash light under there, the fuses SHOULD be labeled.....BUT, they will not notate which Amp fuse goes in which slot, but you could cross reference with the slot # and accessories above :)

Once you've checked/verified all your fuses are OK......I'd go with purchasing new bulbs.....if the new bulbs don't work then you may have a connector problem and may need to change out the actual "socket" the bulb plugs into.

when my 1986 w-250 turn signal switch went out the brake lights quit working.

Assuming the signal lights still work, no. But a bad brake light switch or a blown brake light fuse could.

Are both lights coming on and staying on? sometimes when a light is out on the front or rear the lights just come on and will not blink.

A blown fuse can cause the dashlights and taillights to stop working on a 2001 Dodge 1500.

Doesn't look like anything, as Dodge didn't make the Aries in 1996.

How do you remove oil pan from Dodge Aries stationwagon. It is loose but cannot get it off.

Pull the turn signal stick towards you.

Sounds like you simply have A burned out bulb, Turn the signal on and look at all the lights to see if any are burned out. Could be A marker light if its in the turn signal circuit.

The dodge Aries was discontinued in 1989, but I would try looking under the passenger side of the car, in front of the rear tire.

I tried all the fuses, the parts that under the brakes I checked that. All lights come on and working except the brake lights no break lights.

Check fuses and the headlight switch.

It means that one of the head/tail lights is not working.

Try the fuses first then see if you have power to the fan and lights. Get a test light or multimeter.it could be the bulbs and fan. the switch. make sure you have power at the fuse box. then the switch. check the wires.check for loose grounds. Good Luck

The bulbs should be checked on a 1993 Dodge Dakota if the taillights are not working. The plugs on the trailer package should also be checked to make sure that they are working.

It is screwed into the exhaust manifold.

When changing the timing chain on a 1986 Dodge Aries 2.2L a diagram comes in handy. A diagram for this can be found in the cars maintenance manual.
