2002 dodge ram 1500 brake and parking lots went out


Both. If the running lights ( marker, tail, clearence, or parking) and brake lights are out since the rain, a tail light assembly is broken and filling with water enough to create a short to ground. If there's no broken lens, whitch normally only blows the bulb. Then, the problem lyes in the trailer light harness. the brown wire (tail) & green wire (left turn/brake or yellow wire (right turn/brake) must be bare exsposed that shorts to ground when wet. all the trailer wires could be smashed together damaged the plastic coating on them. no problem till water shorts to ground. The white wire is the ground wire make its not able to touch the other 3 wires or bare & wet. Tape wires seperate then replace tail/mkr fuse and brake fuse. That should do it.

Dodge ram 1500- when car is in park, the "park lights" dont work.


The parking lights would not normally come on unless you turn them on with the headlight switch. The daytime running lights would come on in drive and go off in park.
If you can't turn the parking lights on with the headlight switch, you would check the fuse, the relay if equipped, and the headlight switch.

99 dodge ram van 1500 v6 keep blowing fuse for parking and dash lights as soon as I turn on parking lights. Where are the ground wires for the parking lights?


have you recently replaced the bulbs in the rear for the tail lights Check to see if you put the right kind of bulb in. I myself have done this. Most ground wires are in the rear going from the harness to the frame.

I turn my headlights on but my dash light and tail lights do not turn on. brake lights and turn signals work just find. 2000 dodge ram 1500


The parking lights do use their own fuse, but also have their own connector on the light switch, because you need to be able to turn them on without having the headlights on.

So first check the fuses with a test light, and then if they are all good, check the output of the light switch, to see if a lead get hot when only in the parking light position. If not, then it is the switch.

96 dodge ram 2500 tail lights and instrument panel lights quit working at the same time all other lights work help please!!!


Check your tail light fuse, on the dodge ram the dash lights and tail lights use the same fuse so if the tail light fuse blows your dash lights will go out to alert you of no tail lights.
