Question about 2006 Dodge Ram 1500

2 Answers

Interior lights On a Dodge 2006 Ram 1500 Mega Cab . . . when I get in, the interior lights only stay on about 3-4 seconds instead of the "normal" 20, or so, seconds. If I could learn where the "timing" module is, I could remove it and perhaps buy one on the net or order one through a local dealership.. I just don't want to pay the $80/hour labor. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yup... same issue with my 06 2500. lights out after 5 seconds and no settings in the manual to overide. I'm thinking of installing a battery powered switch light in the cab until the dealer can come up with a fix.

    Has anyone figured his out? I have the same problem with my 2006 Ram 2500

    I have an 06 1500 with the same issue.  Even if i manually turn on a map light in the cab it goes off after a few seconds.  Same thing with the cargo light.  Very annoying when you need the light loading and unloading snowblowers at night in a north east snowstorm!

    I had the same problem, but brought it to my local Dodge dealership and they fixed it for free as it is a common problem with the truck.

    Had the same problem. The local dealer checked it against the computer and they re-set something, thereby fixing this very annoying problem. It took them about 15 minutes.

Disconnect your negative battery cable for about 20 seconds. You will have to reset your clock and radio stations after.

07 dodge mega cab cummings diesel. When the heater

You definitely gotta have the dealer ship redo the wiring for the navigational system. Although the wires didn't short anything out, but the two similar wires may have been crossed during the installation. Aftermarket or not, the unit should have made no difference unless it is a defective unit.
