If tilting the wheel turned the headlights on, it sounds like there's a problem with the ignition switch. Or if the headlight switch is a stalk on the steering column, possibly a fault somewhere in that switch or the wiring to it. First thing to do is find the headlight fuses and see if you have power on both sides of the fuse with the key on. If you don't, i would take the steering column covers off and look for a broken wire or burnt connector at the ignition switch.

Could be the headlight switch or the dimmer switch.
I would check for voltage at the dimmer switch first.

I turn on the headlights and the dash lights and the tail lights dont come on, is this a fuse or is the headlight switch bad?

Okay first check your fuses ensure I turn on the headlights and the... they are good. Otherwise most lights are dim through the turn signals switch. Especially with tilt wheel over time due to the use of the tilt wheel the wires Bend and break you will need to gain access to the steering column by removing the panel to the steering column a test-light will determine where power starts and ends.

Flashers out, module, relay

Dodge hides all the good stuff. If you have a tilt wheel it's not too bad. Your flasher module is located just to the right of your flasher unit. Whatever you do (if you decide to do it yourself) remove the ground wire on the left strut tower and disconnect your battery. Do both of these as touching the wrong thin under the cover your going to take off WILL ACTIVATE YOUR AIRBAG if you don't take those two precautions. Tilt your wheel all of the way down towards you, remove the two screws on the steering wheel column, it is the square unit and simply unplugs. You may have to go to a dealer for the part, my local Napa was able to special order it for me but it's an expensive one, if you have a local junkyard that might be a better way to go as it isn't a part that fails very often. That's where it is on the 1999 hope it's the same for you. Good luck.

My story Dealing with Dodge

I had a 1994 Dodge Ram. The Red Dodge Ram I had it malfunctioned and my brake became the throttle. I had to put the truck in reverse then park. to stop, after it was out of control at 80 mph a hill slowed us down. Are you sure its not electrical and the curse control is not giving you trouble? Mine had multifunction switch was not working and the headlight switch burned up. I also found out that Audi had problem with the brake becoming the throttle in the 1980s Daimler Chrysler and Audi were German made. I don't think there is an easy answer. I hope you stay safe. Another man is having strange trouble also. I'm sure there are many more people with trouble with the vehicles. I wish Dodge would step up to the truth. and recall their nightmares. I saw many of their 1996 Dodge trucks at their dealers shop with all the electrical pulled out.
