    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!

Check all the door switches. See if they are ok. If they are ok it could be the PCM and that is the computer that controls the interior electronics. IT is not cheap.

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.

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.

99 dodge ram fuse 12 that controls mirrors, interior lights and radio, blows out everytime you put one in. none of these things works at all. fuse was blown when i got truck, replaced it and it blew out...


Along side of where the door closes, is the plastic trim between the carpet and door jamb . Unscrew this piece of trim, a wiring harness runs along it, as well as the seat belt module under the seat wiring. What I found was one of the screws rub the harness and shorted out the system. Repaired the wires ALL GOOD!

Interior dome lights wont activate wh en doors


If none of the interior door lights work, check the fuse, and check the bulb. If they are both ok, then you may have a bad relay or switch but you will have to trace the wiring which is a pain.

Interior Dome Lights will not turn off


The fault is most likely to be the drivers door micro switch.
Open your car door and push the microswitch button in and out a few times. This will probably make the light go off short term.
Long term just replace the switch.
