SOURCE: running lights stop working 2002 dodge ram

This happened on my '05 2500 Dodge diesel last winter.After spending a full day checking wiring,fuses,relays and the headlight switch I determined the problem was with the (FCU) the front control unit which is mounted with 4 screws to the outward side of the fuse box.When i asked the dealer if they had one in stock they said they usually kept 6 on the shelf,so I figured if they stock this many then they must be a common problem.This unit cost a bit over $300.00. When i installed it I still had no front or rear park/running lights so I started to remount the fuse box and look for another problem and BINGO I felt the relay click and the lights came on,now I'm thinking did this unit need a few seconds to reset or was this just a flukie fix.Well the lights worked fine for 3 months and the same problem happened again.This time I installed my old FCU just to see if the new one went bad but still no lights,but as I was moving the fuse box around again I felt/heard the relay click and the lights came on.

So I took the fuse box out of the truck and completly dismantled it (dealer says a new one costs $700.00).These boxes snap together and then there are 3 points where the plastic is melted (studs) and these need to be drilled out to separate the top and bottom halves,then the box is easy to take apart.There is a printed circuit board inside that the FCU plugs into with about 40 small connectors and there is where the problem was.One of the lead circuits on the board had corroded and lost connection.I just soldered in a piece of jumper wire and that cured my problem although this probably could be repaired properly by someone with circuit board experience I was happy with my mickey mouse repair for now.

This may sound complicated but the fuse box can be removed from the truck in 10 minutes(honestly) it took me longer to make a sketch of the harness plug in locations than it did to remove the fuse box.Once you have the box out it takes about 20 minutes to drill the (3) plastic studs and split the top and bottom sections (there are no springs on ball bearings or other surprises to fly out as you separate the 2 parts) then if you don't feel you have the skills to check the board and do the repairs you can have an electronics shop do an inspection.

A couple of things that puzzled me while trying to find this problem was that the dash lights still worked,the chime that rings to tell you you have left your lights on still chimed even with only the park lights on,and there was no power at both park light fuses.

When i found out the price of these fuse boxes I automatically thought I'd get one cheap at the local junk yard..big surprise,they said they can't find enough of them to keep up with the demand and also said they often get calls from people saying that their fuse box burned up,so appearently there is a problem with dodge truck fuse boxes!! When I questioned the service manager at my dodge dealer about these things going bad he agreed and said they have replaced many of them.

Hope this helps and I didn't scare you too bad.

SOURCE: no dome light or radio

It's the IOD fuse. Trust me, I just fixed the exact problem on my '98 not ten minutes ago. The fuse is located in the fuse box inside the driver's side door. It will be the fuse on the bottom and toward the front of the panel with a black cover over it. Just pull the fuse holder straight out and snap the hinged cover forward to expose the fuse. Just a standard 10 amp automotive fuse and you're back in business!

SOURCE: The reverse lights will not come on on my 2006

The actual reverse switch that controls the lights will be located on the side of your transmission and will have a couple of wires coming out of it. Odds are the switch has gone bad as it's exposed

If you are looking for the fuse box diagrams or any other diagrams for your Ram, check for a factory service manual for around 20 bucks or so. It's an invaluable tool for my Ram 2500.

SOURCE: 99 dodge ram interior lights wont come on

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.

Why wont my reverse lights stay on if they work?


if your reverse light don't stay on, first check the bulb.

If the bulb is okay, check the reverse light wire and make sure its intact.

Lastly, check your fuse box. You should find your fuse box under your steering and or inside the bonnet. Check if the fuse has blown.

Good luck.

Do the taillights work? If so it might just be the bulb. If not then the wiring is broke some where or loose.
