Question about 1999 Dodge Ram
Last night my headlights just stopped working while i was going down the road. The headlights run off of the same fuse as my brake lights and all the lights work except for the headlights(turn signals, reverse lights, hazard lights, tail lights). It's a 1996 dodge 1500 and from what i can see the bulbs are both fine.
There is a circuit breaker inside the headlight switch body. It gets weak over time and use. The breaker is actually mentioned in the owners manual. A new switch is about $75.00 at the local parts store. You must remove the front of the dash to change the switch. Mine would go off and then in about 30 seconds reset and the lights would come back on. I would be driving down the road with my headlights flashing as the circuit breaker opened and closed. New switch = problem fixed.
