I've had some cars in the past with similar issues... The dimming dash lights upon braking turned out to be a weak battery. As the brake lights went on, it took power away from the dash lights. On another car, my dash lights would sometimes flicker. I found that the dimmer control was loose. Sometimes fiddling with that switch will help.

To fix a 95 Dodge Dakota with no brake lights, first check to ensure the fuse has not blown. If the fuse is good, check to ensure the brake light bulbs are not burn out.

When your foot puts pressure on the brake pedal there is a switch that relays the brake pedal being pushed to the lights which makes them turn on.

The 2001 Dodge Dakota, with a towing package, has a trailer brake built in. The trailer brake is part of the towing package.

Start with checking the brake fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir. If it is low for whatever reason, those lights will come on.

There are many types of warning lights on the Dodge Dakota. In order to know what a specific light means we need to know which light it is and what year the Dakota is. 2000

check the fuse block on the driverside of the dash. the driver's door has to be open to gain access to the fuseblock

Brake lights could stay on in a 1999 Dodge Stratus because of a short in the wiring. If the headlamps are off and the brake lights are still on, check the wiring for the brake lights that is inside the trunk. Sometimes cargo in the trunk can interfere with the lights.

After further research I am answering my own question. It is fuse number 6 on the fuse block located under the dash and is a 10 amp fuse.

i do not confess to know about dodge Dakota (English) but the most common problem for dimming rear lights when the brake is applied is a poor earth to the rear light assembly, the earth connection works fine for rear lights but overloads when brake lights used. check the connection of the earth to the light unit and if necessary remove and clean the both ends of the earth wire.Answeryou have an earth problem, check the wire that connects to the body on that lamp

It isn't there, Dodge didn't wire the Dakota with one. You will have to wire the brake controller your self.

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.

When making changes to the brake system of a car, it is important to have a diagram to compare work. For a 1991 Dodge Dakota a rear brake assembly diagram can be found in the maintenance manual.
