Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I replaced it with all the relays that are in that fuse block and none would click, they might all be bad ,I don't know
Dodge Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 1 year ago

no it cant be all the relays are bad , if not clicking, the headlight switch is your problem or there a control module called EMIC module for lighting

the module can be checked with a diagnostic scanner , the most likely cause will be the headlight switch, the EMIC module i seen it go out at high mileage trucks .

yours has 98k

Dodge Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 1 year ago

Then relay is good .

headlight switch or the EMIC module is the issue.

on a diesel engine like yours that module is the underhood fuse box ,it is integrated in one unit .

on gas engine they have a separate emic module for it
