2001 dodge 2500. Rear brake lights will not work. Center brake light works, blinkers, flashers and tail lights work. No fuses blown.

obviously first check the bulbs. If they are fine, check that a brake light connector is not diconnected. I have seen it once. The connector was used to power an accesory on the rear instead. Also, the connector or bulb sockets could be rusted or loosly connected. Hope this helps.

Head light change out How intrusive is the job?

Hello gary..... This is not a bad job. Here are the steps.

  1. Engage the parking break and remove the keys from the ignition before attempting any repairs. Make sure you've turned the headlight switch to the off position.

  2. Open the hood by first pulling the interior hood release lever located below the steering wheel under the instrument panel. Then, walk around to the front of the pickup and push up on the safety catch located in the opening beneath the center of the grill. Lift the hood and secure it.

  3. Unscrew the expanding fastener from the headlight welt, if equipped. Use a screwdriver to remove the three screws that hold it in place. However, not all Dodge Rams of this generation have this feature.

  4. Remove the first two bolts from the headlight assembly using a socket wrench. These two bolts will be on the inside near the grille.

  5. Remove the third bolt located on the outside bottom of the headlight assembly near the fender. You may find it easier to access this bolt from the fender well where you'll find an access hole after removing the fender plug. Use a socket wrench with a ratchet extender for easier removal.

  6. Pull the headlight assembly away from the front of the pickup, giving special force to the fender side. Be careful not to scratch the paint or jostle the assembly too much. You don't want to have to readjust your headlight aim when you're done.

  7. Disconnect the electrical connector by giving it a quarter-turn and pulling it straight out from the base of the bulb housing. This should remove it completely from the housing, so you can access the bulb.

  8. Twist the collar on the headlight bulb a quarter-turn to remove it from the bulb base.

  9. Install the new bulb into the bulb assembly, reconnect the electrical connector and place it back into the headlight housing. Replace the headlight assembly in reverse order of removal. Make sure all bolts are secure before closing the hood.

  10. Turn on your Dodge Ram and make sure the headlights are working.

2001 dodge diesel doesn't have brake lights.

Sounds like a short in your wiring. Have you checked the bulbs and you could have bought a bad brake light switch. Try having somone step on the brake lights and use a test light to see if your getting current back there

Cannot get the tail light lense off to change ram 2500

Drop tailgate and look for screws holding light assembly. If all screws are removed you may have sealant holding the assembly. Gently pry it out of is seat. Behind the assembly are the sockets that require a 1/4 turn to remove. Then change bulbs as required. Let me know if this helps. Moe
