I'll try to answer a couple of these for you;

ABS Warning light; Probable dirty sensor, and more than likely in one of the front wheels. Sometimes you can get away with taking them apart and cleaning them other times they need replacing. Most parts stores sell the wheel bearing and sensor as a package deal, but I was able to get just the sensor off line (can't remember where though.

Parking Brake Light; Try pulling emer. brake release handle and pull up on the e-brake pedal at same time to see if it goes off.

No Brake Lights; More than likely you have a bad brake light switch. It is located under the dash about 1/2-2/3 of the way up your brake pedal, usually pretty easy to replace.

I have a 98 Durango and a 99 Ram 1500 4x4 that I've had to do some of the same work on, and for what it's worth I'm also a retired mechanic. Hope this helps you out .

If the ABS light is on it will also illuminate the "brake" light. If there is a problem with the hydraulic part of the brakes, the brake light illuminates, and the ABS light will likely not be on since there is no ABS fault.

If you have no brake lights and the ABS on I think its safe to assume that the two are related. I would start by checking the brake switch. Especially if there is no center brake light.

    • mine has been put to bed too, the sled cause of the lack of snow I gave to the kids and grand kids last year.  Just the wheeler  left for winter.
    •   I'll help you here, but you're going to have to call the nurse to wipe yourass.
    • So, how many other votes, in a state where vote fraud is a way of life even though the establishment denies it, got changed?  And did they undo the fix as soon as Moynihan walked out the door?     Sounds to me like, at the least, some folks ought to lose their job.  Maybe the feds should launch an investigation under the voting rights act or one of those things.     Ha Ha, like that is going to happen. 
    • That's what I asked, whether the stories were different or just the headlines.   Bear stepped in on Jiggy's team and said they aren't going to bother to answer.    So, since you googled it, you must have a source and the answer to my question.   Well? 
    • Chaws really hit it on the head, we are a very small market industry in regards to ice fishing. Even the walleye industry is small potatoes to advertisers compared to bass. In many cases if you're not 1 or 2 in your product line you're either a garage/hobby company or going broke. I get a kick looking at the intricate paint jobs on some of the tiny ice jigs that get sold for a couple dollars, no way can they justify the time. 
    • Couple more pics.  Got all the plastic on and the floor insulated. 
    • Rather ride my Harleys to but its Minnesota and if nothing else its going to get cold soon. Put my bikes into storage and the snowmobile is siting in their place and ready to go. I know its going to get cold I just hope we get some snow with it this year. Sure would like to get more than the usual 2-300 miles on the sled this year.
