tell me what is the problem you are having. Is it just that you brake lights don't work but the center brake light does? you have a STOP (15A) fuse in your dash fuse panel. That fuse should bet hot all the time. It goes to an orange wire to your brake switch. it comes out of the brake switch as white wire. The white wire splits and on part goes to center brake light. the other part goes to

before you replace anymore parts you should have it checked when it won't start. When it won't start, you need to measure your fuel pressure. it should be 40 to 47 psi for the 3.8L. If fuel pressure turns out okay, check for spark. If the spark is good then check for fuel injector pulse. each part will have it's own tree to follow depending on what results you get.

In Forum: Dodge And Chrysler

If you are working on the battery cables and neutral safety then are you talking about a no crank condition? What is happening when it won't start? When you turn the key to the start position, what happens when it doesn't start? starter engages the flywheel and cranks the engine over but the engine won't start? starter doesn't turn the engine but you hear a click from the starter solenoid?


In Forum: Ford Trucks

okay, help me with my confusion, what are you doing to start your truck? If you are starting it at the solenoid is there someone holding the clutch pedal down? Or is the engine starting with the clutch pedal up because you have bypassed the clutch switch by going to the starter solenoid? starting and cranking are two separate things. when you crank the engine over normally with the key, the
