Troubleshooting 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 with Lamp Out Error When Headlights and Turn Signals Are On


I have a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500. When I have my headlights on and use my blinkers the lamp out flashes and dings. This only happens when I turn my park lights or headlights on. What could be the problem. All bulbs are good.


Helpful Expert Reply:

On your 2002 Dodge Ram 1500, the lamp out signal/sound is due to your headlights and turn signals pulling too much power. The sensor isn't getting the correct amperage and throws the error. The solution is cleaning your wiring connections and then using dielectric grease # 11755 to help prevent corrosion or debris from interfering, and then making sure all your ground connections are bare metal to metal and free of rust or corrosion. Even paint can interfere with a proper ground connection. The grounds by each of your tail lights are what I would check first.

If you have any further issues, you may need to replace a sensor, but this will most likely solve the issue for you.
