Question about 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 2WD

1 Answer

My '08 Ram does not have a diagram in the fuse box, and the fuse has blown that operates the wiring for the running lights on the trailer connection. Can anyone tell me which fuse to replace? The fuses are the mini blade type without a window, so I'm not able to tell by eye which one has blown.

You can take a standard 12 volt test light and hook it to a good ground, then touch the little metal tab on each side/ top of the fuse. With the lights and flashers turned on, you can test each fuse. NOTE! some fuses don't have power unless the ignition is on, but running lights should come on. The running light fuse should stay on while the flasher fuses usually blink with the lights.
Hope this helps. Mike

Four way don't work blinkers do on 08 dodge ram 5500


Hello. The turn signals and hazard lights operate on two separate and distinct wiring circuits and have their own individual relays that make them work.

Replace the hazard light relay with a heavy duty relay (as opposed to a standard relay.) The cost difference is minimal and will be able to handle the load to operate trailer lights

You'll find the location of it by opening your vehicle's owners manual which contains a diagram of all the fuses and relays. Some manufacturers also diagram the fuse and relay schematic on the fuse box cover.

Best regards

Unless I'm mistaken, there is no fuse dedicated to the trailer lights - they're wired directly to the matching truck lights - the running lights & taillights should be wired directly to your truck's taillights.

Check your trailer wiring from the truck plug all the way back. I've seen lots of poor connections in the truck plug, as well as any of those squeeze splices you might have in your trailer. Look also at the ground wiring for your running lights.

Check this location. They have color codes and wiring diagrams. Make sure the trailer has a good ground. It MUST have the ground wire connected to the truck and trailer or you will have a floating ground through the ball. That will cause blown fuses. http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx

Trailer Wiring Harness


The trailer fuses should be located out in the engine compartment inside of the fuse/relay junction box.

That is unless the trailer connector on the vehicle and the wiring were installed by someone who used an after-market trailer connector, and if that is the case then you might find the fuses up under the dash or around the fuse/relay junction box, and the fuses will most likely be inside of in-line fuse holders that are part of the after-market wiring. Here are some diagrams that might help you out.
