20 Most Recent 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab Questions & Answers

Here's a link to a pdf file containing the headlight wiring diagram for your year model Dodge Ram 1500..
I can't help but notice that you say you've replaced the headlight relay? That's quite odd, because there is NO headlight relay on this vehicle- only a 40 amp fuse located in the power distribution box that sits behind the battery inside the engine bay.
The switch is notorious for burning out because there is NO RELAY on this vehicle, and there is a recall (#819) but this only affects 3500 models even though the headlight wiring is the same for 1500,2500 and 3500 model Rams.
Here are two more links that will help you troubleshoot your headlights problems.

it most likely needs new plugs and an o2 sensor. it also has a large evap leak. thats what all those codes mean. you could have looked them up yourself on google. po352 and po 356 are telling you two cylinders are not firing number 2 and 6 so change the plugs first and go from there. or get pro help so you dont just throw unneeded parts at it like many people do.

Sounds like it's running rich when it should be pulling off the "choke" as it's warm-ish. Maybe a temperature sensor somewhere.

  1. Clamp the seat belts to keep them from retracting.
  2. Locate and disconnect seat wiring at the connector(s).
  3. Move front seats forward or back for access to the hold down hardware.
  4. Put the rear seats in the stowed position.
  5. On Durango 3rd row seats, lift the cushion upward and forward to floor cargo position.
  6. Remove the hardware securing the seat.
  7. On split bench models, lift the center seat upward to clear attachment stud
  8. Remove the seat from the vehicle.
NOTE Do NOT activate the track adjusters once the fastening hardware is removed.

Possibly the replacement headlight switch has the same defect.

This is likely a short in the power distribution block located on your stearing column. There was a recall for this problem. Contact the dealer for information.

Sounds like an aftermarket security system.

There are 3 different engines for that year but the 5.2 and 5.9 are the same but gave you a picture of both anyway. I hope this helps and good luck.
