96 Dodge Ram 1500 wiring diagram for headlights.

We've replaced the relay switch & bought new headlights- yet the headlights still won't work. Anybody out there have an idea where we can get a free diagram for the schematics?I have the same problem. No head lights or high beams. I replaced switch and lights with no luck.

Here's a link to a pdf file containing the headlight wiring diagram for your year model Dodge Ram 1500..
I can't help but notice that you say you've replaced the headlight relay? That's quite odd, because there is NO headlight relay on this vehicle- only a 40 amp fuse located in the power distribution box that sits behind the battery inside the engine bay.
The switch is notorious for burning out because there is NO RELAY on this vehicle, and there is a recall (#819) but this only affects 3500 models even though the headlight wiring is the same for 1500,2500 and 3500 model Rams.
Here are two more links that will help you troubleshoot your headlights problems.

You will need to replace the headlight switch and the headlight switch connector, they are burned, it is a comm,on issue. Solder the repair connector on do not crimp connect it!

I have a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 ext cab 2wheel drive. The headlights work on Low, but when I switch them to High I have no headlights. All other lights work fine and the bulbs appear to be fine.


It would be either the headlight switch or the headlight relay. Try the relay first, it is easier to replace and less costly than the switch.

Have a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 i have high beams but no low beams why?


on rare occasions I have seen both low beams burn out I would buy one new bulb and replace either one in the truck if the low beam works with the new bulb then replace the other one as well if the low beam still does not work then replace the headlight switch also check to see if the headlight switch recall was done on that particular truck or if it was under that recall,they had a problem with some of the ram trucks burning up headlight switches but I would check to see if yours might have been one of them there is a wiring upgrade that they will put in at the headlight switch that will cure that,like I said though check to be sure first yours might have not been one of them.

I have no headlights!! parking lights, taillights,and blinkers all work fine. none of my fuses or bulbs are blown


I have a 2004 ram 2500 and all my lights work except for low beams. It is not in the switch, I haver replaced the switch with no change. This is a circuit problem with these dodge pickups. I haven't firgured out what it is but it isn't the switch. and unless the low beams and high beams are fused seperate, it isn't a fuse problem either. i have looked for a fuse and can't even find the fuse for the headlights. Im lost like you!

2000 dodge ram headlights not working


Try this, take the steering colum cover off. Check the back of the multi function switch. Likely the ground wire is broke at the connector. I believe the ground wire is the second wire rom the top on the second row of wires. Unfortunately, the connector plugs inside the plastic houseing break and pull out. The fix isnt easy. You can either replace the entire wireing harness, or splice in some extra wire to take the strain off the plug. Good Luck
