Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 2500

Had a problem with a right, amber side marker on right side

Had a problem with a right, amber side marker on my trailer. The side marker worked by grounding to the trailer. I had to replace the bulb due to it burning and creating an electrical problem. I worked with it prior to going out, and they all worked. Later all the lights (running) were out. Brakes, and both turn signals worked. After jiggling the wires on the side marker, all lights came on again, then went off. Finally, I bought a new side marker. The new side marker, which has 2 wires (brown and white) does not ground to the trailer, to work. I can also switch either way and the side marker still works. Now, running lights on the left side work, both turn and stop lights work but the right side running lights does not work. It can't be a fuse because the left side running lights work. Could it be a bulb on the right rear that connects all my lower middle lights not to work?

Usually one of the holes in the marker light where screw goes in, has metal contact where screw meets light, but if not, and they are not push in wire connection type from behind, then just run your white wire up through hole in housing, and bare the end & tighten it up under screw holding light to body. White should be ground, brown should be power.

Why would only one out of 4 marker lights work?


you are right all marker lights come off of one fuse, inside instrument panel, number 29, a 10 amp fuse my manual does not give a lamp number, it has a chart, head lamps (high) lamp 9005 60 w type a, headlamp (low) 9006 51 w type b, front marker lamps 5w type d, for the rear it says to use a lamp 7443 21.5 w type d, I do not use these, I have special lights on mine, hope that it helps

How do I change the front side marker light bulbs?


Bi-Xenons - 6000K D1S
High Beams - Osram Nightbreakers H7
Fogs - PIAA H11 Yellow Ion
Cornering Lights - Osram Nightbreakers H3
Front Park Lights - High-Powered LEDs with built-in resistors
Front Signal Lights - Sylvania Silverstar 7507A ST (Silver Bluish but lights up Amber)
Front Sidemarkers - InviSilver W5W (Silver but lights up Amber)
Rear Signal Lights - P21W Stealth Bulbs (Silver but lights up Amber)
Reverse Lights - Sylvania Silverstar 7506ST or Error-Free LEDs
License Plate Lights - C5W Error-Free High-Powered LEDs
  • Turn the engine off and approach the side of the porsch with the burn-out side-marker light. If you are replacing both, start at either side; the replacement procedure is the same.
  • 2 Remove the screws from the plastic fender liner. Peel back the liner to access the area behind the fender.
  • 3 Reach your hand inside to gain access to the side-marker light's backing. Push the backing forward to release the side-marker lens; it's held in place by small clips.
  • 4 Grab the lens on the outer side and turn it over to access the back. Gently turn the bulb to release it from the plastic lens.
  • 5 Pull the bulb straight out to remove it from the electrical socket. Insert a new bulb, but do not touch the glass part of the bulb with your hand.
  • 6 Push the new bulb into the side-marker lens. Turn it clockwise to install it. Push the side-marker lens back into place. Apply gentle pressure to the lens to pop it back into its mount.
  • 7 Replace the screws along the edge of the fender liner.

    We need to know the color code on the wires to hook up tail lights to a trailer.


    4 way flat molded connectors allow basic hookup for three lighting functions; right turn signal / stop light (green), left turn signal / stop light (yellow), taillight / license / side marker (brown) and a ground (white).brownwire will run both right and left side markers
