    I have the same problem. No radio no interior lights of any kind and when i leave the light switch on and open the door i do not get a ding. I found that i have no power to the 5 amp fuse in the interior fuse box. The rest of the fuses have power. and no it is not a blown fuse i do not have power on either side of the fuse. I also keep blowing a fuse in the motor compartment. it is labled the fuel warmer or something like that, but it seems the problems are not connected because i have the light problem with or without the fuse in the motor compartment in or out.

    I have the same problem. The 5 amp fuse has nothing to do with it. If you turn your lights on you will have power at it. It is used to dim the interior lights when headlights are on. But i have all good fuses 1)no interior lights 2) mirrors will not move 3) radio is on but no sound. It is sounding like there are a lot of people with this problem. If anyone has a solution please let us know.

I had the same problem and could not understand why I THOUGHT I checked all the fuses, but there is a fuse on the drivers side which is covered by a black thing (no idea why). It is listed as IOD or something. If you lift the black thing up and remove the fuse you will notice it is blown. Replace this and all will be well again.

My dodge was doing the same thing i had two wire short out and then i lost my radio and interior lights, i started checking fuses and everything was fine so i pulled the radio out to check and see if i had power at the radio, i had power to all the wires but the yellow(memory), so i got some electricla connecters made to conect 2 wires without spliceing them, i put tht on the yellow and the red(power) so they were connected to one another. as soon as tht was done i had my radio back and my interior lights. it fixed my problem, but im eventually gonna trace the memory wire and replace it but theres a fix for ya!

1999 Dodge Ram 1500 radio and inside dome light sre not working. Radio 15A fuse is good. What do I look for?


Hi Steve:
You may have 2 separate problems so I'd try to approach it that way. RADIO - On this older truck, it may be that there is a separate in-line fuse for the radio. If you can see under the dash where the wires come from the radio, look for a red or black one that has an in-line fuse holder. Push the ends inwards and twist counterclockwise, then pull apart to get at the fuse. It is also possible that the "accessory" terminal of the ignition switch is no longer working. A continuity meter should help you resolve that.
DOME LIGHT - Pull the bulb and test to make sure it's working. Check for power at the bulb connection receptacle (socket). Dome lights typically are switched from the doors or by rotating the light switch. If the bulb is good, it should be a hide and seek game to find where the power is, and where it isn't. The shorter the distance between these points, the closer you are to the problem.
Patience, and a sense of humour. You'll get it.

Dome lights will not go off........Which fuse makes the dome lights off. This will run the battery down.


The fuse should be marked interior light or dome. The fuse will solve your issue. They are likely in the cab.

Are you sure you didnt hit the dome light override button? If you have one it should be a button right by your light switch.

Dome lights wont work on a 1999 dodge ram 1500 van


check in the fuse panel for a blown fuse or a time delay relay to be blown out. if this checks out to be good, then you have a short in the wiring to dome light. also you may look inside the dome light socket for a blown light bulb or a short in the socket.
