Don't touch the bulb with your bare hands as the oils will make it burn out. Just follow the directions below and you should be set to go. Good luck


Step1 Engage the parking break and remove the keys from the ignition before attempting any repairs. Make sure you've turned the headlight switch to the off position.
Step2 Open the hood by first pulling the interior hood release lever located below the steering wheel under the instrument panel. Then, walk around to the front of the pickup and push up on the safety catch located in the opening beneath the center of the grill. Lift the hood and secure it.
Step3 Unscrew the expanding fastener from the headlight welt, if equipped. Use a screwdriver to remove the three screws that hold it in place. However, not all Dodge Rams of this generation have this feature.
Step4 Remove the first two bolts from the headlight assembly using a socket wrench. These two bolts will be on the inside near the grille.
Step5 Remove the third bolt located on the outside bottom of the headlight assembly near the fender. You may find it easier to access this bolt from the fender well where you'll find an access hole after removing the fender plug. Use a socket wrench with a ratchet extender for easier removal.
Step6 Pull the headlight assembly away from the front of the pickup, giving special force to the fender side. Be careful not to scratch the paint or jostle the assembly too much. You don't want to have to readjust your headlight aim when you're done.
Step7 Disconnect the electrical connector by giving it a quarter-turn and pulling it straight out from the base of the bulb housing. This should remove it completely from the housing, so you can access the bulb.
Step8 Twist the collar on the headlight bulb a quarter-turn to remove it from the bulb base.
Step9 Install the new bulb into the bulb assembly, reconnect the electrical connector and place it back into the headlight housing. Replace the headlight assembly in reverse order of removal. Make sure all bolts are secure before closing the hood.
Step10 Turn on your Dodge Ram and make sure the headlights are working.

You have a bad connection at the rear passenger side turn signal. It is either the connection is corroded or a wire is loose on the ground side of the circuit.

How do you change a headlight bulb on a 04 ram 2500 4x4


There are 3 bolts two which are located on front of the lamp housing and one more which is located under the lamp housing (if looking at the left side it is above the front bumper trim the space between the two), then remove the two plastic screws for the lamp housing gasket. When you have removed all hardware then pull hard on the head lamp you will have to pull pretty hard then it will pop out your new bulb will be a 9007.

Fcm location


The FCM is somewhere in the passenger compartment (in dash) location. The best solution is to take the vehicle into an authorized service dealership and have them diagnose this issue.
