I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500. does anyone know anything about the headlight wiring?I would like to know how it works. Currently , i know the violet wire is 12v constant and the vt/wht wire is ground when...


Well, where to start...
First there are 4 different headlamp systems available for 2001 Dodge Ram 1500.

> WITH Daytime Running Lights and WITH Quad Headlamps

> WITH Daytime Running Lights and WITHOUT Quad Headlamps

> WITHOUT Daytime Running Lights and WITH Quad Headlamps

> WITHOUT Daytime Running Lights and WITHOUT Quad Headlamps

So providing you with an EXACT flow chart of what happens depends on which system your truck is equipped with.

However, the general jist of it goes like this:

The Violet wire you mention is your power feed to the bulbs (high beam and low beam elements) from the headlamp fuse (HOT AT ALL TIMES). The dimmer switch basically determines which of the two headlamp elements is going to get grounded to complete the circuit. When the Violet/White wire gets grounded, that is low beam. When the Red/Orange wire gets grounded, that is high beam.

Just a little "Automotive Electrical Systems 101":

Your Headlamps work just like ALL automotive electrical circuits. The power goes from battery POSITIVE to battery NEGATIVE in order to complete the circuit. PERIOD! Every circuit on your vehicle is as simple as that. If you take a closer look at the wiring diagrams, you will see this.

Is the 2001 dodge ram 1500 pre wired for cab lights


no they are not. remove the windsheild pillar trim and run a wire from the parking lamp circuit from the headlight switch up to the headliner. That is all it is to do

2001 dodge ram 1500 driver's rear blinker and brake light not working. Unplugged short harness at light, and no power going to plug. Any suggestions ???


trace all the wires back to the front of the truck and check for any broken wires. Also be sure that there is a good ground at the end of the wires behind the light

Installed radio in a dodge i turn on the headlights and the radio


Sounds like you wired the ground to your headlight dimmer wire. It's grounded until you turn the lights on, then it goes hot, thereby leaving your radio without a ground. Better see which wire you tied in to the headlight circuit. Be sure to check the wires you are connecting to on the vehicle's harness with the key off AND with the key on to make sure it's pos. or neg. when you want it to be.

96 Dodge Ram 1500 wiring diagram for headlights.


Here's a link to a pdf file containing the headlight wiring diagram for your year model Dodge Ram 1500..
I can't help but notice that you say you've replaced the headlight relay? That's quite odd, because there is NO headlight relay on this vehicle- only a 40 amp fuse located in the power distribution box that sits behind the battery inside the engine bay.
The switch is notorious for burning out because there is NO RELAY on this vehicle, and there is a recall (#819) but this only affects 3500 models even though the headlight wiring is the same for 1500,2500 and 3500 model Rams.
Here are two more links that will help you troubleshoot your headlights problems.
