Asked by Dec 12, 2017 at 10:27 PM about the Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 02 Ram 1500 4x4 Sport has Brake light, and blinker issue.Truck has four
tail/brake light bulbs(2 left- 2 right). The top on both sides are also the
blinkers.
My issue is complicated.
The right upper stop light bulb doesn't light when I mash brake.Simple...that
is the only visible problem. Except the right blinkers (Front and Read) blink
faster than the left.
Now...inside on instrument panel it says LAMP OUT when brake is applied.
When running lights are on the right blinker also dings, and flashes LAMP
OUT.
Now...the overhead display that displays outdoor temp, miles per gallon, and
such. Running lights off, and applying brake it says LEFT FRONT TURN
LAMP OUT.
Running lights on, and brake applied SAME THING.
Running lights on, and right blinker applied- Overhead says RIGHT FRONT
TURN LAMP OUT (Flashes with blinker). And mash brake says LEFT
FRONT TURN LAMP OUT.
Running lights on, and left blinker applied- NOTHING.
Running lights on, and left blinker applied, and mash brake...Still no
display(Overhead nor dash)
I've replaced ALL rear bulbs. Replaced Body module, or FCM. Replaced
right read bulb socket.
Also replaced ignition switch (To Fix Blower Issue)

Someone please help!!!
