Pulsing lights 08 dodge ram 5500 6.7 cummins

I have a 2008 dodge ram 5500. For the past 3 years all my dash, running & headlights have been randomly pulsing. I've checked the batteries, alt, regulator, all good. Forums have plenty of questions about this issue but no definitive answers. I've had it in the shop at Dallas Dodge before & they couldn't even figure out the problem. Would appreciate some advice.

Being a 08. You have a TIPM.. Basically the fuse panel under the hood. But it has a computer attached to it. It is not totally sealed from the weather. It practically runs everything. Bad spot for them IMHO. I pull them and check plugs for corrosion. Some times I have to fix the plug/s. Most times it is the TIPM. Yours is intermittent, don't rule out the light switch.

SOURCE: Charging problem on 1996 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins Turbo Diesel

I had the same problem on a 94 dodge with the cummins. It seems the crank sensor that reads from a notch on the harmonic balancer was the problem Without this sensor reading that the engine is running the alternator wont charge. Possibly the same problem with yours

SOURCE: problem with hid on 2008 dodge ram 2500

Not too much amperage. HID lights use less amps. Duh. The circuit is showing a failure in the HID kit from not enough amps so it turns off. You need to add a resistor.

SOURCE: 08 dodge ram key FOB reprogramming

ATTENTION: You MUST HAVE one working remote to add one more to the system. If you do not have one working remote right now then these instructions will not work. You will have to have a Locksmith or dealership use a computer to program the first remote for you.

Click here to find a Locksmith in your area to program this remote.
1. Enter your vehicle and close all doors.

2. Fasten your seat belt ( fastening the seat belt will cancel any chiming that may
confuse you during this programming procedure.)

3. Place key into the ignition.

4. Turn the ignition to the ON position ( DO NOT START THE ENGINE )

5. Press and hold the UNLOCK button on a working remote.


6. Continue to hold the UNLOCK button, wait at least 4 seconds, but no longer than
10 seconds, then press and hold PANIC button.

7. When a single chime is heard, release both buttons. The chime indicates the system
is in program mode.

8. Press and release both the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons, simultaneoulsly on the remote
to be programmed.


9. A single chime will be heard. The chime indicates the the remote was recognized.


10. Within 4 seconds of hearing the chime, press and release any button on the remote
being programmed.

11. A single chime will be heard The chime indicates the remote has been programmed.

12. Repeat steps 8 to 11 for a total of 4 remotes.

Where is the low headlights fues on 2006 Dodge Ram 2500


Most headlight fuses are next to the battery, but some low beams are incorporated into the daytime running lights. Check the relay too for a signal from the dash switch and check for constant power side of relay also. One side is main power that gets relayed to the low beams and the other part of the relay is the side that gets the signal from the dash switch, one side is ground and the other is power, but the dash switch needs to be on headlights to diagnose.

WHY DOES MY 04 DODGE RAM 1500 TURNS OVER SLOW AND WONT START?


Read your owners manual or use the internet,
to find out what the dash symbol is

Any dash light that is on, you should have checked for codes

The alternator has nothing to do with starting the motor

Turns over slow-- is telling you something

Bad Battery
Bad Cables--voltage drop
Bad Starter
Motor Problem-mechanical

You didn't say how any of the testing was done, or the results

What about spark,injector pulse & fuel pressure

2008 Dodge Ram 2500 6.7L cummins deisel. One day it will run fine the next day it will be constantly going into limp mode "or" the engine light will go on and the truck seems to run okay.


Take it to the shop and ask them to read the on board diagnostic codes stored in the ECU. Most vehicles carry a 3 year manufacturers warranty, regardless of what the dealer offers. If the dealer wont fix it free of charge, appeal to the original manufacturer directly.
