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.

Low beam on passenger side will not work. High beam will come on. I have changed pic tail still same problem. High beam work. Is there another fuse box inside truck. If so were. Or do I have am...


Are you sure the bulb is not burned out? Switch it with the bulb from the driver's side to make sure. Also, do you have power at the WHITE/TAN wire at the headlamp connector? If there is no power there, you either have a bad connection at the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) or a broken wire beween the TIPM abd the headlamp socket or a defective TIPM.

There are no seperate fuses for your headlamps. They get their power directly from the headlamp drivers in the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM)

2002 Dodge Caravan headlamps: one works on dim the other works on high beam but not together. Also only one daytime running lamp.


Your van has dual diligent headlamp bulbs, that means each headlight has one bulb that serves as high beam and low beam. What has most likely happened is on one side the low beam filament has burnt out, and on the other side the high beam filiment has burnt out. The daytime running lights are just the high beam filament running on reduced power, so if the high beam doesn't work on one side, that same side will have no daytime running light. Replace both headlamp bulbs with matching, good quality bulbs.

Low beam headlights stopped working but hi beams are OK.


Did both low beams go out at the same time?

Could be as simple as replacing two headlamps.

Audi A4 2002 Low beams & Right front turn signal stopped working


For Audi A4 the fuse box is located on the left side of dashboard behind a plastic cover (for left hand steering wheel vehicle). On inner face of the plastic cover you will find the fuse diagram.
First fuse on first row from left upper corner is Fuse Nr.20 = F20 (15A) - RH headlamp low beam, headlamp adjustment.
First fuse on second row from left upper corner is Fuse Nr.21 = F21 (15A) - LH headlamp low beam, headlamp adjustment.

How do you adjust the headlights on a 2006 dodge ram 2500 ?


The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

I have no headlights!! parking lights, taillights,and blinkers all work fine. none of my fuses or bulbs are blown


I have a 2004 ram 2500 and all my lights work except for low beams. It is not in the switch, I haver replaced the switch with no change. This is a circuit problem with these dodge pickups. I haven't firgured out what it is but it isn't the switch. and unless the low beams and high beams are fused seperate, it isn't a fuse problem either. i have looked for a fuse and can't even find the fuse for the headlights. Im lost like you!
