2002 dodge ram 1500 brake and parking lots went out

When it started raining the parking and brake lights went out. Did I blow a fuse or is this electrical? I can't find the diagram for the fuse box.

Both. If the running lights ( marker, tail, clearence, or parking) and brake lights are out since the rain, a tail light assembly is broken and filling with water enough to create a short to ground. If there's no broken lens, whitch normally only blows the bulb. Then, the problem lyes in the trailer light harness. the brown wire (tail) & green wire (left turn/brake or yellow wire (right turn/brake) must be bare exsposed that shorts to ground when wet. all the trailer wires could be smashed together damaged the plastic coating on them. no problem till water shorts to ground. The white wire is the ground wire make its not able to touch the other 3 wires or bare & wet. Tape wires seperate then replace tail/mkr fuse and brake fuse. That should do it.

    Okay, I tried a couple of things. First I checked the wiring, but couldn't find any exposed wires. I then checked the fuse, still looked good but went ahead and replaced it anyway (didn't fix it). I then replaced the brake switch and still no luck. I then used a circuit tester and only one side of the cavity of the brake light/parking light fuse area lit up.

If you are looking for the fuse box diagrams or any other diagrams for your Ram, check promanuals.net for a factory service manual for around 20 bucks or so. It's an invaluable tool for my Ram 2500.

SOURCE: 2004 dodge ram 1500 rear brake light out how to replace?

Open up the tail gate, you will see two torque screws on the inside beside the tail lights. take these out, this will free up the housing and you can change it from there.

SOURCE: 03 Ram 1500 E-Brake light flashing

its possible the switch on the e/brake unit broke, take a flashlight and locate a single/double wire that goes to the e/brake assembly (this is the piece you depress with your left foot) and look to see if the wire is broken or the switch the wire goes to is broken.

SOURCE: 2003 dodge ram 1500 abs & brake light came on.

Problem: I have a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 L HEMI. My ABS and Parking Brake lights were illuminated, and my speedometer needle would "bounce". Also when sitting at a stop sign or just sitting idle, the engine would stall, and often times stop running.

Solution: After long research on this problem, I decided to dig in and try to find the problem myself. I replaced the Rear ABS Sensor
($35) that's located on top of the rear differential. Still no fix. I then unplugged the ABS Controller (or Module) that's located directly behind the battery (You should see the metal brake lines running into the top of it.) When I unplugged it, I noticed LOTS of moisture in the plug. Using an air hose, I blew out the water and let it dry good. When I plugged it back in, and hooked the negative battery terminal back up THE PROBLEM WAS SOLVED!! Simple fix. Hope this helps.

Trying to find the problem to why my park light fuse keeps blowing?

You are replacing parts but you should be focusing on wiring. you will need to physically check all the wiring for the rear tail lights and the front park lights for shorts to ground. you can also unplug all of the bulb sockets, replace the fuse, and see if it blows. if it does than it is in the wiring. If it does not than plug the sockets back in one at a time until the fuse blows, then inspect or replace that socket.

No tail lights come on with headlights on

Check the fuses. Taillights are independent from the fuses the operate the turn, brake, and reverse lights.

Tail lamps and front corner lamps inop

If the fuse was melted, I doubt that all 4 bulbs went bad at once. It sounds like you have a short circuit there. The power goes from the fuse, up to the head lamp switch and then to the 4 lamps. Check to see if the headlamp switch is working properly.
