    The assembly doesn't seem to want to come out, and I'm afraid to pull too hard that it'll bust off whatever is holding it on the outside.

Open up the tail gate, you will see two torque screws on the inside beside the tail lights. take these out, this will free up the housing and you can change it from there.

Well once the tail gate is open and you take out the 2 screws on the light fixture . the light assembly shall pivot towards the outside of the box. some manipulating but the assembly shall come out.
The bulb needs a simple twist and pull .... Plug and play..

BOTH THE ANSWERS ARE CORRECT BUT I WOULD LIKE TO ADD THAT THE HOUSING CAN BE STUBBORN, YOU MAY NEED A PLASTIC PUTTY KNIFE TO USE AS LEVERAGE TO POP THE ALINGMENT PINS ON THE LENS ASSY OUT OF THE HOUSING. JUST DONT GO KING KONG ON IT! GENTLE IS ALWAYS BETTER.

Left rear turn signal on dodge ram 1500 won't work. bulb replacement didn't help.


Just had a similar question last week, and the solution was a bad socket/bulb holder.
You might try and see if there is current in the brake light wire leading to the bulb holder.
I have used a jumper wire and a safety pin to test the wire behind the socket.
I pierced the plastic insulation of the brake light wire with the point of the safety pin, and either use a tester or even a good working bulb and a good ground wire.
Be blessed.

Do the taillights work? If so it might just be the bulb. If not then the wiring is broke some where or loose.

There are many people having trouble with Dodges Electrical.

I had a 1994 Dodge Ram. The Red Dodge Ram I had it malfunctioned and my brake became the throttle. I had to put the truck in reverse then park. to stop, after it was out of control at 80 mph a hill slowed us down. Are you sure its not electrical and the curse control is not giving you trouble? Mine had multifunction switch was not working and the headlight switch burned up. I also found out that Audi had problem with the brake becoming the throttle in the 1980s Daimler Chrysler and Audi were German made. I don't think there is an easy answer. I hope you stay safe. Another man is having strange trouble also. I'm sure there are many more people with trouble with the vehicles. I wish Dodge would step up to the truth. and recall their nightmares. I saw many of their 1996 Dodge trucks at their dealers shop with all the electrical pulled out.
