1997 Dodge Ram Center Console

You sent me info about lubricating the lock. I'm trying to help my brother, so I am not totally familiar with his truck when it was new. I'm having trouble trying to figure out why there is a lock feature holding up the console, and if it is supposed to lock in upright position, how the lock is supposed to be released so it can be lowered? Is the center console supposed to lock in upright position? If so, what is the proper operation that is supposed to allow it to lower? All I could figure out is that there may be an interlock feature to prevent the console top from being opened when the console is in the upright position, and that interlock feature broke and is actually preventing the console from coming down. Thanks for any more info you might be able to provide.

The center console in the dodge truck locks in the up position when the brake is applied. the lock maybe stuck or if you have your foot on the brake when you are trying to lower it.

Where is the fuse for the cig lighters on a 2008 dodge ram 1500 act located ? Is there anything else that would cause them to both stop work at the same titiine?


I'm not familiar with your truck, but, from reading up there is an aux socket in center console and then cig sockets. These are seperate circuits, centre is perm powered, cig sockets not.

When you say more than one has stopped, is it 2 x cig or 1 x cig and 1 x console?

I'd be checking the fuse and relay box under the hood, front wing sort of location (depends on year and such so I may be off here) for some circa 20 amp fuses (yellow in uk).

found this, which may or may not be the right numbers as is a different year perhaps:

Your cigarette lighter is powered by fuse #29 in the integrated power module. The power outlet is powered by #26 and if the power outlet in the center console is not working, this one is #42

Thats a whole different ballpark. The center seat consoles do not lock upright at all there is no locking device, you just lift it up and it has a small bump that the lever hops over and this keeps it from falling back down. The only thing I can think of is something could be wedged in the lever or the rotating level itself is broken and holding the seat up. You may be able to see what is holding it if you move the drivers seat as far forward as possible and watch carefully on one side while wiggling the console back and forth and then do the same on the other side. If could be the lever bent and you may be able to bent it back into plce where it should be.

Let me know what you find, in the mean time I will check the Chrysler Star Hotline to see if there was a simular problem.

Dodge Center Console


When I told you to lube it, I was assuming you were talking about the cup holder in the center, lower part of the dash, if I was correct then the proper way to open it if its working properly is the push in on it and then it should come down to expose the cup holders. To close it you lift it and push in on it to lock back in the upright position.

You were speaking of the cup holder correct?

Waiting for reply!

1997 Dodge Ram Truck Center Console stuck in up position


Hi my name is Allen!

The most likely cause is the lock that holds it in place is sticking, you can try to lube it with a gel lubricant and see if that helps. If this doesn't work unfortunately it will have to be replaced.

For further asistance you may reach me at FixYa!

In some models the relay is in the power distribution center in the engine compartment, they should be marked, if not your owners manual may have info.
