Make sure that the fuse for the tail lights is not blown out. There may be a separate fuse for both the headlights and tail lights for your car.

Brake light came on put new pads on brake light wont turn off how do i get it to turn off


Change your brake switch. The brake switch is right there at your brake pedal. They get stuck sometimes. That is your problem. It is a switch with a wire and a plastic plunger in it. It moves back and forth when you press and release your brakes. It does not cost much. Maybe $10.00.

I have a 2005 ram 1500. I want to wire extra


I strongly suggest that you use a relay, or you risk damage to switch and light components.

Then, take a test light, find the high beam wire, and wire the relay to that. In essence, you want the power from the high beam circuit to energize the relay. The relay would be wired directly to the battery.

This method will give you longevity. you are using the high beam power to activate a switch (the relay).

Look around shift linkage area of transmission for a threaded in plug with 3 or so wires to it. Neutral safety & back-up are in one switch.

96 Dodge Ram 1500 wiring diagram for headlights.


Here's a link to a pdf file containing the headlight wiring diagram for your year model Dodge Ram 1500..
I can't help but notice that you say you've replaced the headlight relay? That's quite odd, because there is NO headlight relay on this vehicle- only a 40 amp fuse located in the power distribution box that sits behind the battery inside the engine bay.
The switch is notorious for burning out because there is NO RELAY on this vehicle, and there is a recall (#819) but this only affects 3500 models even though the headlight wiring is the same for 1500,2500 and 3500 model Rams.
Here are two more links that will help you troubleshoot your headlights problems.
