SOURCE: I have a 99 ram 4x4 slt laramie dome lights cargo light and map lights dont work, replaced #12 fuse 10amp under the black fuse keeper thingy on the drivers side but it keeps blowing it some times it l
Classic symptoms of a frayed wire carrying current somewhere in the circuit, but touching metal, bare metal against bare hot wire: instant SHORT! Maybe a little spark there. Fortunately for you, you have a 10 amp fuse in that circuit which blows, and keeps the wiring from melting, and maybe starting a fire somewhere in your vehicle. If the fuse doesn't blow right away, the bare wire has moved away from contact with metal, but eventually, with enough movement it gets back into position and shorts again.
Enlightening, but not very helpful, eh? I'm afraid that's the way it is, Richard. Shorts like that can be very difficult to trace and find, without time and patience, a decent understanding of auto electrical systems, a wiring diagram for your Laramie, and knowing just what circuits that fuse protects.
If you have the owner's manual, it should list the circuits for that #12 fuse. I'd start with the dome lights, and remember, the door switches are part of that circuit. Good luck.
