Follow the wire, it is shorting to ground somewhere.
Perhaps a rodent chewed it.

When I turn on the headlamps the dash lights go out. Guages all work, radio display disappears also. fuse is good and tried changing headlight switch


Get a test light,and ground the clip,put the tip of the test light on the dash light fuse.Turn the knob to dim,and brighten the dash lights,see if the test light reacts with the dimmer switch.If it does not,then there is a wire jumped to by pass the dash lights somewhere.If the test light dims,and brightens,then there is a wire of going to the dash,or bad connection where the harness clips into the dash.

Our 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 van won't start arfter it has sat over night and it has rained. It takes an hour of trying to start it before it will fire up again. Any theories or solutions?


I've got a 95 Dodge 1500 Ram pickup. It has the same problem. I've got a 5.9 engine in it and the distributer is located right under the seam where the hood closes against the cowl panel. I suspect moisture is somehow working it's way into the distributer cap. Try replacing the distributer cap & rotor. If at night when you open the hood with engine running and don't see a "Light Show" from the wires I would spray the ends going in the cap with WD 40. If you do see a "Light Show" replace the wires, and then spray the ends with WD 40. It displaces water and moisture. This should cure your problem.

Headlights wont work


Well...lets start with the obvious. Check fuses and NEVER piggyback any stereo or security stuff into their fuses...you dont want the lights to shut down during a night drive!!
Check under the hood for a relay center...also has some fuses there as well.

The Daytime Running Lamps are a "straight through wiring configuration". Doubt it even goes through a headlight switch at all.
But the regular lights do.
Unless you've worked on the front of the car and forgot to plug the headlights back in, do this...
Turn the light switch on...looking at the instrument cluster , can you make the high-beam-indicator light come on?
As you rotate the headlight switch knob...does the instrument panel lights brighten or dim? You probably have a faulty headlight switch...auto stores have them...they simply plug in.

1984 RAM CHARGER


I have 86 W-150 Ram. Driving along one night and lights went out. My dimmer switch is located on the floor next to the kick panel. It had gotten wet and shorted out. Made a quick repair to get the lights working then replaced dimmer.
