Customer Question
I have 2004 dodge 3500...
I have 2004 dodge 3500. Diesel dually. Running light came on the other night and wont turn off. If we take the fuses out one turns off one side the other turns off the other. Also the relay does turn them off.

Hello and welcome to just answer. This is caused by 3 possible things. 1 a stuck closed relay, 2 a failed FCM ( front control module ) or a short in the IPM (under hood fuse box ) Try swapping the relay 3ith another one. If the lights still stay on then disconnect the FCM. It is that skinny module attached to the IPM. If the lights go off, then replace the FCM. If they still are on, then replace the IPM. This answer is based on the fact that there is no aftermarket items like a security system or other device conneted to the lights.

I hope that this information is helpful and if so would you kindly rate my service?

Thank you.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
