I would say you have a break in the wires somewhere, electrical break. It could be in the headlight switch area. You need to test the circuit with a wiring schematic. There might be a short, lost ground, or loose connection somewhere. Is it blowing your fuse? If so, it might be in that area. If not, check around the bulb sockets to. There might be something blowing the ecm. You could check the current there first. Just need to find what pin your lights are on. I would say that is your trouble area. All grounds are black wires. If you need anything, let me know. I am here to help in anyway I can.

My 2004 dodge ram 1500 right headlight doesn 't work. the bulb has been replaced with a new bulb. What should I look for next?


This happened to mine people told me could be anything from plug, switch to fcm, turns out what it was was poor connections at fcm(front control module). Easy fix, remove fcm and headlight wire plug to fcm, clean contacts with nail file, reinstall. Worked for me, hope it helps.

Right headlight low beam does not work, high beam does. Left side headlight works fine


I had the same problem with my 2004 ram, passenger side low-beam wouldn't work after replacement. Online I saw many things from socket replacement to Fcm replacement. What worked was to remove fcm (front control module) and clean appropriate contacts with small nail file . Repair took less than 1 hour and cost 0$, wish I could give credit where I found info.

Where is the tipm located on teh 2004 dodge ram 1500?


I quote from the service manual:

"The Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) is a combination unit that performs the functions of the Power Distribution Center (PDC) and the Front Control Module. The TIPM is a printed circuit board based module that contains fuses, internal relays and a microprocessor that performs the functions previously executed by the FCM. The TIPM is located in the engine compartment, next to the battery and connects directly to the B+ cable via a stud located on top of the unit. The ground connection is via electrical connectors."


This link also provides interesting info on reflashing (re-programming) Dodge Ram TIPM module.


Regards.

Fcm location


The FCM is somewhere in the passenger compartment (in dash) location. The best solution is to take the vehicle into an authorized service dealership and have them diagnose this issue.
