Question about 1995 Dodge Ram 2500

1 Answer

Headlights shut down on 1995 dodge ram

Enroute from airport after dark. Headlights on. suddenly they shut off. pulled over. worked the on/off switch a couple of times without positive results. pulled back on the dimmer switch and the high beams turned on, but only if i held it back. Holding it back, i drove to motel for the night. picked up new bulbs the next morning enroute to home. Tested the bulb plug with multimeter, all ok. Changed bulbs, no improvement. checked the fuses with multimeter, all ok. Does the 1995 vintage have a TIPM controlling the headlights?

There should probably be a relay for them too.

Same problem with a 95 1500. Replaced the signal switch but did not solve it. Have been told it is the headlight switch but have not tried it yet.

If the check engine light is on then you should have your codes read. That's the ONLY way you're going to be able to diagnose and correct the issue without spending a buttload of money chasing a problem that you don't know what it is ...

Why wont my 1998 Ford Explorer Headlights shut off?


Does the vehicle have daytime running lamps ? Did you pull fuse from the inside the vehicle fuse panel ? I/P Fuse # 12 30 amp underhood fuse box is for the headlamp switch . Sounds like daytime running lamp module is the problem . But , without testing this is just a guess , by looking at a wiring diagram . Do you know what a automotive electrical wiring diagram is ?

You can't turn them on manually with the switch . You have the switch set on auto ?
Headlamps
You can use the headlamps in two different ways.
• Place the headlamp switch in the ON position for normal operation.
• Place the headlamp switch in the OFF position for automatic lamp control (ALC). During ALC the high beam headlamps are On at reduced intensity for daytime running lamp (DRL) operation in daylight conditions, or low beam headlamps On in low light conditions.
The DRL/EXT LTS fuse and the EXT lamps fuse in the underhood junction block supply battery positive voltage at all times to both of low beam lamps and to the right high beam lamp. The low beam circuit continues to the high/low beam switch, then, depending on the position of the dimmer switch, connects to the normally-open headlamp relay switch contacts. Placing the headlamp switch in the HEAD position provides a ground path for the headlamp switch input of the Body Control Module (BCM). After receiving this input, the BCM energizes the headlamp relay. When the headlamp relay is energized, the low beam circuit is connected to ground G201. The high beam circuit is divided into a left and a right side circuit.
The DRL/EXT LTS fuse in the underhood ignition block supplies battery positive voltage to both the coil and to the normally-closed contact of the DRL relay switch circuit. During high beam operation, the left side current flow is through the closed contacts of the DRL relay, and to the left high beam lamp.
The EXT Lamps fuse in the top of the engine fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the right high beam lamp. Both high beam circuits are then connected together, and continue to the dimmer switch. When the driver closes the high beam contacts of the dimmer switch, the circuit is grounded at G201.
Both the headlight switch and the BCM provide a ground, or control circuit, to the headlight relay coil circuit for manual or automatic headlamp operation. When you place the headlamp switch in the OFF position, and the ambient light sensor indicates low light conditions, the BCM energizes the headlamp relay for low beam operation. You may switch the headlights to high beam by pulling the dimmer switch handle toward you until the dimmer switch is activated. When the dimmer switch is placed in the HIGH position, the indicator lamp input to the BCM is pulled low. The BCM then sends a class 2 message to the instrument cluster in order to illuminate the high beam indicator lamp.
If the headlamp switch is left in the head position, the inadvertent power control feature will turn off the headlights 10 minutes after you turn the ignition switch to the OFF position. If you place the headlamp switch in the head position after the ignition switch has been turned OFF, or if the ignition switch is in the ACCY position, the headlights will remain ON until you turn them OFF or until the battery runs dead.

Check both relays for the DRLs and headlights for possible sticking contacts and the flash to pass in the multifunction switch may be shorting out .

Headlights stay on too long after engine is off


been working on the same issue for a week. fixed it last night after research and trouble shooting. The head lights are controlled by the head light dial/knob on your dash on the left side of your steering wheel. With the knob pushed in, if you shut down your car, the lights should automatically shut off as well. Mine didnt so what I did was i turned off my car, disconnected the positive battery terminal located inside a fist sized red box on the right side of your engine. Then I took off the dash panels to get to the actual connection on the headlight switch/dial/knob. I disconnected it and put it all back together. It fixed the problem.It worked for me, maybe theres an easier or faster way of fixing it but this worked. Good luck.

My automatic headlights stopped working on my 2009 Jeep Liberty. I can turn them on manually.


My 2008 jeep liberty's headlights flickered when I was just driving down the road in the dark and then completely shut off on me. My fog lights are the only lights that work now and my lights continue to blink off and on a couple times and then completely off. Now that this has happened my jeep will continue to lock and unlock itself and also my blowers for heat and cool air will not blow at all...

Headlights don't work at all, but all other lights work fine.


If u have been jumping wires and such u may have burnt out a circuit, the next thing to test is the headlight swith, pull it out and look for overheated terminas and any melting of the connector to it, replace both connector and switch as ness.
