Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD

1 Answer

No dash lights or brake lights

I hooked up my horse trailer to my 1998 dodge ram 3500 diesel truck and at first when I plugged it in the lights on the trailer did not work. I unplugged them and replugged them in and then they worked. Later that night I found that the dash lights and brake lights in my truck were no longer working. Fuses inside and under hood look ok.

    u better check those fuses again, use a 12 volt test light (avail for around $6) and check both sides of all the fuses for those lights, u have missed something.

Usually a wiring problem - the wiring on your truck connector may not match the pinout on the trailer plug.

NO TRAILER AUX. POWER ON 2006 DODGE RAM 3500 DIESEL MANUAL TRANS 2 WHEEL DRIVE CREW CAB DUALLY


if you are trying to hook up your trailer lights, but there is no pigtail .most all trucks now have a harness behind the tag or rear bumper that will come apart and most parts stores sell a device that will go in between the two haves that makes easy work out of hooking the lights in. without cutting wires and the price is not that expensive

The wait to start light is telling you there's a problem. Check out your drivers guide. There can be a whole load of problems causing this problem, water in the diesel, blocked fuel filter, no diesel, but if it cranks and starts eventually. The glow plugs probably need replacing.

Where is the turn signal fuse on a 2001 Dodge 3500 diesel truck? I changed the flasher and that didn't fix the problem of no turn signals or four way flashers.


This problem sounds like one I have faced several times on my 2001 diesel Dodge. The culprit has been a fuse under the hood in the fuse panel on the driver's side, up near the steering column. Look through the clear top of the fuses you see, chances are excellent that you will find a green one with the little electrode "popped". This is common when you plug a round trailer plug in upside down, or otherwise ground a powered circuit for the lights through the trailer plug. Simply pull and replace, I keep a couple spares in the glove box because of this problem. Also, if you use the truck to go to the auto parts store, keep in mind that you have no brake lights either. Hope this works for you.

Wiring problems


Hi Charlie

Six wire plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Left turn/Brake -LT
Green = Right turn Brake -RT
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - TM
Red or Black (not both) = Battery, aux power - A
Blue = Electric Brakes - S

Ground should be 10ga.
Others 14 ga

Best regards
Mike
