Sounds like you have the stereo ground wired into the wire that dims the light on the factory stereo when the headlights turn on. Rewire stereo with proper ground, check all other wiring to insure it's done properly,replace blown fuses for lights & stereo. Should be good to go.

SOURCE: HOW DO I GET RADIO OUT OF DASH IN A 2004 DODGE RAM

The bezel around the radio and the two center a/c vents pops off pretty easily, just get a hook tool and start from a corner. Once off, there are 3 8mm bolts to be removed (2 on one side and 1 on the other side of the radio). Then just pull the radio out.

This is likely a short in the power distribution block located on your stearing column. There was a recall for this problem. Contact the dealer for information.

Easy way to rid light is to unhook battery for 30 min. and re hook, may loose a few settings like radio, alternative is with a scan tool or ob2 reader with the function to reset light.
If light returns, you will have to have it diagnosed with a scan tool and read fault code to determine problem.

My 2006 dodge ram 2500 diesel keeps blowing fuse


The Internal light is normally tied to your dash lights on a factory installed radio. Find the main p[lug on the back of the radio and unplug it then try it with a new fuse if it still blows then it is the wiring if it does not blow the fuse when the radio is unplugged, chances are the radio is bad and will have to be repaired or replaced.

1987 dodge ram 50 pick/up rear lights not working but headlights work fine.also dash lights and radio lights are not working.


It could be a fuse? Have a look in the fuse box, your owners manual will detail where it is. Take a look at the top of each fuse to see if the thin piece of metal is burned out.
