Customer Question
Drivers side rear taillight...

Drivers side rear taillight is out. Brake light works and signal works.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the bulbs? Have you checked the connection?

The light assembly was recently replaced and was out before the assembly was replaced

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Dodge?

2012, 2500 Laramie

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 2500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, the Dodge garage replaced the assembly as a result of it being damaged by them

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I have not checked fuses yet which is next on the list. I am not near the truck at this time but will be later today

Dodge Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

The tail lamps share the same fuse for both sides , that fuse is the fuse M35 located in the Underhood fuse panel and if your RH side tail lamp is working then the fuse should be okay. Power comes to both tail lamp circuits on the white/green wire. The place to start is checking the voltage at the Left rear lamp socket on the white/green wire. Also, check to see if you have a good ground on the black/gray wire at the lamp. If you find power and ground at the lamp then the problem is with the lamp. See the wiring diagram for testing reference in the link below. Check this for me and post back if you have more questions and or need more help.

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.
