You may want to check out the wiring to be sure that there is no short that may have caused the melting. Check also the number of Watts the bulb has vs the specified for your truck. Other than that you may have to check the condition of the relay. A ceramic socket for the lights may also prevent this from happening again.

1996 dodge Ram 1500 4x4 headlights dont work.All other lights work. Headlight lamps are all good. Could it be the switch or the multifunction switch? High beam works when I pull on the directional le


The headlight switch gets power for the headlights from a 50amp fuse.
The fuse powers the headlight switch then the dimmer switch breaks for high and low beams. So if the high beams work, the problem may be with the dimmer switch.
The dimmer switch is made into the turn signal switch on the column. You would need to check the low and high beam circuits at the switch for power.

Have a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 i have high beams but no low beams why?


on rare occasions I have seen both low beams burn out I would buy one new bulb and replace either one in the truck if the low beam works with the new bulb then replace the other one as well if the low beam still does not work then replace the headlight switch also check to see if the headlight switch recall was done on that particular truck or if it was under that recall,they had a problem with some of the ram trucks burning up headlight switches but I would check to see if yours might have been one of them there is a wiring upgrade that they will put in at the headlight switch that will cure that,like I said though check to be sure first yours might have not been one of them.

Low beam headlights do not work ..replaced switch and high beam bulb


try the lights with the tilt wheel in the up position. If the low beam works then, a wire has pulled out of the connector on the mutipurpose switch inside the steering column. remove the covers behind the steering wheel on the column and there is a large multi wire plug with many wires. it should be obvious which wire has pulled out or broken.

Low beam lights will not turn on


did you pull out the bulb and check it? it is possible that moisture got inside the connection b/w bulb and connecting plug/harness. which it is possible that moisture fouled the low beam circuit and not affect the high beam. (this happened to me) inspect for signs of moisture in the headlight lens and around the wiring. purchase new bulb,install new bulb turn on lights

Headlights not working right


Usually headlights have two filaments in them for low and high beam. One of the fillaments may be broken while the other is still intact which is why the low beam works and the high beam doesn't. The solution is to replace the bulb. This should take care of the problem.
