Do after-market lights cause issues with the sensors on a Dodge Ram?
Just bought a used 2014 Dodge Ram, has a
parking light sensor light coming on, but
parking lights work? I took it to a Dodge
dealership and they say it's most likely due
to the rear after-market lights that it has,
does this sound right? New stock lights will
run almost $400 to install, ugh!
If the after markets are LED's it can cause a sensor problem if they do not have a special resistor just for LED lights. But if the aftermarket lights use standard lamps then it could be a bad socket or ground. HTH
Thank you, how would I know or how can I check to see if it has this resistor?
Most of them are usually attached close to the light units, some are in a fancy little heat shield others are just soldered and left hanging in the open air, those are not a wise thing to do. You will most likely have to remove the taillight units to check. HTH
