Did you find the fuse that the owners manual tells you is 4 the trunk lite?? If its not the fuse and the light it has 2 B the wiring somewhere. Check the bulb socket with a volt meter to make sure you have voltage at the socket itself with the trunk hood up obviously. It could also be the actuator switch. Good luck!!
If all your lite bulbs are out, or don't work as you say in your dash, there is normally only two places this can be. Number one, make sure that your dimmer for your dash did not get accidentally turned off. Meaning a lot of cars and trucks as you know, you can turn down or turn up the brightness of your dash lights by a couple methods. Some have like a dial on there dash area, to turn, or some are on the actual light switch that turns. If this is all on and working good, then the only other place it normally would be is a fuse. And that should me marked as dash lights and in your fuse panel. Check in your operation manual for location of fuse box. Or if you know where this is, then open up and look for a fuse that would say, dash lights or interior lights. I hope this helps. MIke
You most likely have a bad bulb, if the front bulb goes the rear wont work and vise versa both bulbs must be good to complete the cirrcut. Even though you have no lights you should still hear the flasher relay. Bulbs are cheap just replace both and you'll be good to go. Good luck
Hi, with thse symptoms, the most likely cause is a failed connection or dimmer switch, but the headlight switch is also a possibility. Your dimmer switch is integrated into the control wand. I cannot seem to find the instructions for removing the wand, but I think you remove the clamshell from the column and then unscrew the wand assembly from the column. You can test the switch by leaving the cable attached and back-probing the connector with a 12 volt test light or voltmeter. The light green wire should be hot when the headlights are turned on. Leave it on and then probe the red and purple wires. The purple wire should be hot when the switch is on low beam. The red wire should be hot when the switch is on high beams or flash position. If there is no power on the green wire, the headlight switch has failed or the green wire is disconnected or loose. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
your back up lights run on the gage fuse. the problem is probably with the switch on top of the transmission. The switch looks like the picture below and has 2 cables coming out. Remove the connectors from the switch. Grab the one that only has 3 terminals inside and connect the terminals inside the connector that go to the red and yellow wires using a big paper clip. Turn the ignition key on to see if the lights work. If yes, replace the switch. If not, problem is in the wiring. Please let me know if you have questions.
bad ground ..trace from bulb area back to fuse block with flashers...wire is shorting to ground or ground is loose.. good luck... also... my 05 ram had wrong sized gaskets around bulbs in back causing bulbs to not last til i discovered it not sealing out the elements and replaced
