DASH

1999 Dodge Dakota • 6 cylinder 2WD •

Asked a question the other day about my taillights and parking lights not working. Was told it was the light switch. Now, I have noticed that that when my left blinker comes on, my dash lights blink. Apply the brakes, dash lights come on. Now for the question. How do you get the dash panel off. 1999 Dodge Dakota.

Remove and check rear tail light bulbs and make sure have the correct bulbs in the correct place

as what you described is an indication of a wrong rear tail light bulb
