I just bought a used 2002 Dodge Caravan Sport. It is in pretty good shape but needs a few things, most of which I know how to do. Just these small things I don't.
I noticed my break lights didn't work (3 lights top middle and two sides), checked the fuse and it was blown so I replaced it. It was hard to see but I thought they were working, the top light was at least. I checked them again at night and the top was working, the bottom was not. Just running the basic running lights, but did not do anything when the break was pressed. I opened it up and only found it used two bulbs, both is great working order. I did though however notice where the previous owner had spliced into the cable to add lights for a trailer hitch. So I'm thinking that is the problem, I got some 18 gauge wire and plan to remove the extra wire for the trailer hitch I don't use and put the wires back together. So my question is could this be the problem why two out of 3 lights are not working, and secondly what is the basics for re attaching these wires after I remove the added spliced wires. They are spliced with black tape! Could this be something else?
After I take care of this, I will surely have more questions. I do not have know what to donate, I don't have much. This van is taking a lot of my money. I do not mind paying a little if that is okay.
Thank you for your time,
