99 dodge ram 2500 has no power at the illumination fuse and i have no running lights or dashlights

I just installed a remote car starter and after i tested it i had a problem with all my running lights and dashlights not working, i have looked through everything and nothing appears to be hooked up wrong, i previously had it hooked up on a 94 chevy and i had no problems with it, i have no power at my illumination fuse and just to see i fed a hotwire into my switch with a 5 amp fuse on it and it worked fine for a day now it just keeps blowing that fuse

    thats a big no no, you never put in a fuse thats bigger than the one that is factory installed, im only using a 5 amp becuse thats is all thats in the fuse box, if you put a fuse in with more amps it can cause major damage to a vehicals electrical system

SOURCE: 20 amp ignition fuse keeps blowing

I'm curious, does this vehicle have an alarm/remote starter? If so I expect the installer didn't wire it correctly ... it was an all too frequent issue, with inexperienced installers we had .... I would first suspect any add-on device first (if any) ... In answer to your question ... I know it does have a relay (Starter solenoid is a relay and built onto the starter) As far as it being a relay or the IGN switch ... I'm skeptical.

SOURCE: blower motor will not work

Do further tests at the relay to ascertain whether the fault lies before or after the relay.
Check power availability at the supply side of the relay contacts - should have 12v from a supply fuse on one side of the normally open contact (note -this supply may only be available when Ign or Acc sw is on).
If power supply is ok at the relay contact, check control input to relay operate coil.

If a ground (or 12v) operates the relay, operate the relay with a local ground (or 12v) and check blower motor runs.

If all above OK, check control signal from fan switch is arriving at the relay control coil.- if not trace wiring back to the switch.

DID YOU CHECK THE GRIDE HEATER OR SELENIODE
CUMMINS USE GRIDE HEATER (INTAKE HEATER) TO REPLACE GLOW PLUGS

USED AT 12 VOLT TEST LIGHT AT HEATER INPUT MAKE SURE GROUND IS GOOD
IF NO POWER CHECK SELENOIDE TO SEE IF POWER IS THERE IF NO POWER
CHECK LIVE SIDE OF SELENIDE THEN CHECK SIGNAL SIDE (KEY ACTIVATED SMALL WIRE) IF NO SIGNAL POWER CHECK FUSE IF NO MAIN POWER BACK TRACK TO BATTERY

2004 DODGE RAM 2500 WON'T START. LIGHTS AND EVERYTHING ELSE COMES ON, SEEMS LIKE IGNITION IS LOCKED OUT. MY DAUGHTER WAS PLAYING WITH THE REMOTELSS ENTRY PRIOR TO THIS. NOT SURE IF IT IS RELATED.


Unles its an aftermarket alarm system, which requires a turn-off switch or just pressing the brake pedal upon starting, you shouldnt have a prob w/ a factory remote. However, it could be the starter has gone out, a coil over plug is gone. Check your fuses to see if any are blown. Good luck!

on my 2004 ram 2500, I had to depress the trip odometer button and turn on the Ignition. all lights on instrument panel will illuminate, continue to hold button in and tach/speedomenter will run full up and back down. once this has completed, the obd codes will be shown in the odometer.

Good Luck
