I just got a pair of 2008 tail light lens for my 2002 Dodge Ram 1500. If you look under the rear there is a connector that runs up to the tail light. This is a small harness. I believe that all you need to do is purchase the 2008 tail light harness. It looks like it will snap into the bottom of the stock harness and will fit the 2008 lenses.

You are aware that you can buy an adapter that will plug in to harness under truck at back and will allow you to plug a 4 prong directly in to it. No cutting or splicing necessary that way. Any RV shop, as well as most auto parts stores now stock them.

2008 dodge 1500 4wd tail light wire harness color code with trailer hitch


If you adding a trailer light harness, you can buy a seperate harness from most auto parts stores that will plug right in. There should be a connector near the rear of the truck that you can unplug, and add the trailer harness. It's simple and fast and you don't end up making a mess of your wiring. I suggest puting some "dielectric grease" on the connections to prevent corrosion.
Flat 4 connector.
Brown is tail lights and marker lights.
Yellow and Green are turn and stop. I think yellow is left.
White is ground.

96 dodge ram 2500 tail lights and instrument panel lights quit working at the same time all other lights work help please!!!


Check your tail light fuse, on the dodge ram the dash lights and tail lights use the same fuse so if the tail light fuse blows your dash lights will go out to alert you of no tail lights.
