ALL LIGHTS COME ON EXCEPT THE HEAD LIGHTS I NEED HELP WITH THE PROBLEM. TRIED A NEW SWITCH BUT STILL THE SAME PROBLEM. IS THERE SOME THING I NEED TO LOOK FOR OTHER THAN THE SWITCH. ALL THE GROUNDS LOOK GOOD BUT MAYBE YOU KNOW SOME THING I DON,T KNOW OR NEED TO LOOK AT. THANKS!
I have 86 W-150 Ram. Driving along one night and lights went out. My dimmer switch is located on the floor next to the kick panel. It had gotten wet and shorted out. Made a quick repair to get the lights working then replaced dimmer.

If the problem is occurring or corrected while wiggling the switch, remove the switch assembly and check for loose ,corroded or burnt harness connection. if it looks ok, problem may be within the switch itself, replace the switch assembly and recheck.
Running lights, marker lights, and dash lights all come from the park light switch of the head light switch. So, possibly you need a new headlight switch. Or, if you have a voltmeter, you can do some testing of circuits to see where power is and where lost. Also check the fuse for tail lights and horn.
Sound to me like the ignition switch on the steering column, theres a rod from the key switch to the ignition switch which has four sections for various key positions, your sounds like the section that keeps power with the switch off lost connection or is burnt out, change the switch, they are cheap.
I think I know what your talking about... you can find the switch to for your head lights. But even when the switch is off ... your head lights are still on.
If that's what you mean then just put your parking brake on one small click and your head lights should go out.
If that isn't what your talking about please contact me .
Check the brake light switch. It's located under the dash by the brake pedal. Disconnect the electrical connector from the switch. Jump the connector with a paper clip. Be careful not to let the paper clip touch a metal surface. If the brake lights come on then the problem is a faulty brake light switch.
under the driver inner fender is where dodge usually put their daytime runnig light moduals find it,unplug it,the lights should be fine.if you don't need it by law everything else will work normally except the high beem light will no longer work.
There is a circuit breaker inside the headlight switch body. It gets weak over time and use. The breaker is actually mentioned in the owners manual. A new switch is about $75.00 at the local parts store. You must remove the front of the dash to change the switch. Mine would go off and then in about 30 seconds reset and the lights would come back on. I would be driving down the road with my headlights flashing as the circuit breaker opened and closed. New switch = problem fixed.
