1998 dodge ram 1500 dash lights wont work

I had a remote starter installed in the truck, now the dash guage lights and climate control light won't work. Other lights are ok, high beam, turn signals, brake, etc... work fine. Tried unhooking remote starter plugs and looking for pinched or bare wires, removed the gauge cluster and still blows fuses,turn the lights on and they dont pop imediately and the headlight switch heats up very hot. The fuse blows if the dimmer is twisted to full power. Ive replaced headlight switch and checked all connections on remote starter, they seem covered and ok. not sure what to do.

SOURCE: LEFT TRAILER TURN SIGNAL DOES NOT WORK

I have seen once before that the fuse box was bad on a 2003 Dodge 3500. I had power in and nothing out. We had to replace the box. Not cheap! Hope it is simple like a loose connection though. I think I had to pull the inner fender on the drivers side to access the bottom of the fuse box. Pain in the ****, but...

SOURCE: 2001 dodge ram 1500. Brake lights do not work.

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

2000 dodge ram 1500 clicking and wont start batery is good, starter is good, lights are on dash as normal, still wont start, keeps on clicking


get a jump, take it to Auto Zone or other parts store, have them run a free diagnostic on the battery, and the alternator. My bet is that it's one of the two that needs replacement.
