Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.

Dodge Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

if its a bulb the power goes through it one way so if its not lighting up I would flip it around, have you verified that the bulb is good ?

I believe that if we can get the turn signal wires to drop that 9 Vs we will be ok . Why does it have 9 volts on those wires
Dodge Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

im wondering the same thing it should be 12v

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
the bulb is new and wired to the proper polarity. It will only flash the 5 center leds when turned on
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
It should give me 0 Volts at idle and toggle between 12 and 0 Volts when activated
Dodge Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

is that a aftermarket bed you have on there ? and yes it should be doing that

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
It is a utility bed that I just put on the truck "aftermarket" and well grounded
a;; the other lighting works well
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
It is like I am getting a pulse signal that is not strong enough to fire all the led s Yet 9 volts at idle and missing the 12 Volt flash signal
Dodge Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

what are you getting at the truck harness and bed connector?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I will have to pull it back in Monday to check that and get back to you for the answer. picnic day today and church tomorrow. The only reason I am adding these t signal lights because of a conflict with the brake light and T signal making the cyclopes light blinking. I would assume that the harness and bed wires all carry this 9 Vs
Dodge Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

let me know what you come up with, sounds like a bad wire or ground somewhere

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
The 9 Vs is there without anything connected to the T signal wires and runs a low light on all the time to this light when wired up. Do you think I could have caused a problem wiring them like the factory was?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
will check the harness and get back to you Monday. Gotta go now :)
Dodge Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

sounds good ill be around!

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
the 9 V on both turn signal wires is also it the wiring harness (both sides)
The turn signal lamps are both lit but very dim when it should be off.
When actuating the t-signal they both blink very dimly and the interior indicator rapidly flashes
