Welcome to JA my name is Mark.

I understand you are having some issues with your lights?

Are you trying to repair this yourself, or just needing some ideas of what may be wrong?

Either/ both
Dodge Mechanic: Mopar Certified, Dodge Technician replied 3 months ago

Thanks for the reply. Ok, can you fill me in on some details as to the exact lights that are not working? Brake lights? Tail Lights? Are the fronts working?

The reason for disconnecting that wire connector in the first place?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I disconnected that harness to test power at that point. Brake lights, running lights, blinkers and hazard, fuel gauge won't read, I have no control over my lights inside the cab, I have no control over head lights, automatically cone on when I fire up the truck.
Dodge Mechanic: Mopar Certified, Dodge Technician replied 3 months ago

Ok thanks, ***** ***** lights weren't working before you unplugged that connector? That's opposite of what you stated originally, so just looking for clarification.

Only my driver side running light was not working before I disconnected the harness.. something blew when testing power
Dodge Mechanic: Mopar Certified, Dodge Technician replied 3 months ago

Ok, I'll need to opt out and that sounds a little more involved than I was expecting and I would need to actually be there to try and diagnose it. If another expert can help out they will reply here.

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.
