Question about 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab

1 Answer

Dodge Center Console

You sent me info on lubricating center console lock. This is my brothers truck, so I am not familiar when it was new.
Is console supposed to ever lock in up psoition? Why?
If it is supposed to lock in upright position, what are the proper steps to lower it, if everything is working right?

All I could figure out is that there may be an interlock device to keep console lid form beign opened when console is in up position and the interlock device is mal functioning?

Thanks for any help or info.

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!

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

When putting in park, sometimes key wont come all the way back or come out. have to restart the engine put it in drive, then back into park. what could be causing this?


The linear shift cable (Also called Park Lock Cable) is sticking. This happens a lot due to beverages getting spilled in the center console. Removing the center console and cleaning and lubricating the shift mechanism and the end of the cable usually fixes the problem. In other cases, the cable must be replaced.
