No Brake Lights 99 Dodge Ram Van

1999 Dodge Full Size Van: Turn Lights, Brake Lights and Hazards all quit working at same time. Replaced the Multi-Function Switch (on the column), Fuse Panel (drivers side end of dash). Still no lights!!! The fuse in dash panel and fuse under hood are OK. A local garage diagnosed the multi-function switch and the fuse panel after the new multi-function switch didn't work. They now say...........Take it to a Dodge Dealer!!! Trying to locate a wiring diagram so my buddy and I can diagnose problem.

Any help or suggestons would be appreciated.

No brake lights

I changed all bulbs and the switch above brake pedal, but still no brake lights on my 99 ram van 1500. All fuses are good and all other lights/signals work fine.
Any ideas?

Sounds like a supply problem, its unlikely that three switches would go bad at the same time. Possably a fuse link? You need a test light with a probe on it.

Or maybe a problem with a common ground? Either way definitely test light/multimeter time as wrench says.

If it is on a Dodge, you probably have a brake light switch gone south. BTDT. easy change out....tool less.

Oops, yeah. Is the switch releasing properly? Mine were slow to release and sometimes didn't release at all, thus replacement and alignment. But if it isn't getting a charge, it would be a moot point.

I was thinking a connector has come apart. Coincidentally, last month when I took a week's vacation I had the wrecker at the tranny shop for a little work. When I picked it up on my return I discovered...no brake lights, no tail lights, no backups. Took me about 30 minutes of poking around the grimy underside of the back-end to discover the big connector that had been inadvertently pulled apart.

I don[t know if this will help, but there is a website where you can download wiring diagrams, and I checked, there is one for this van. it is BBB Industries - TSB's & Wiring Diagrams - End User License Agreement Hope this helps.
