This happens because in Canada you must keep them lit during the day so they modified the wiring accordingly.
You must modify the wiring back to its original format: identify the command wire on the module and cut it out - this will shut them down. Then draw a wire from the cut one to the original switch on the dash.

    If you modify the wiring you will have to manually turn them on every single time.
    In the mean time replace the relay, it's stuck on closed position.

    The relay is at the fuse box, next to the other ones, in the PDC.

Drove van,parked, then it would crank but not start? I check the power to fuel pump, none. no power to injectors either I've change relays, sensors and power control module and still nothing, please h


Check your owners manual for a fuel shut off button/reset, normally found somewhere in the back interior of the van near the gas tank fill. If you still don't get power, try checking your fuses, make sure you check for two fuse panels....one maybe under the hood and one under the dash. Check them using a lighted probe on both sides of the fuse. Also Google 1994 dodge ram 3500 wiring diagram, much found when I did it! I hope this helps!

Dodge 3500 1997 conversion van Roadtrek. Back-up lights on all the time when lights are on. Pulled wire connection off of switch on tranny and they remained on. What next?


Did this just happen, or was it like that when you acquired the van? Sounds like the back up lights have been wired into the tail light wiring harness.

After the oil was changed on my 2005 Dodge Van, the oil service light keeps coming on. If I turn the van off and restart it, the light goes out and stays out until I restart it again. I had the oil changed...


First... Read your owners manual - page 226 - Turn the ingnition switch to ON (do not start) and fully depress the accelerator pedal slowly 3 times within 10 seconds and then turn the ignition switch to OFF position.
Good luck and keep me posted.

Check engine light is on my 1998 ram van 3500


Bring it to a parts store, most will scan for engine trouble codes for free. They will plug a hand held scan tool into the vans diagnostic port (under the dash) and 'read' codes stored in the van's computer. They can tell you what the codes mean, and suggest how to fix it. If you have any further questions at that time, post them here with the code #'s. Good luck. Curt
