Brake & directional lights out


Asked by Aug 20, 2016 at 11:42 PM about the 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 Laramie SLT 4WD Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It all started when I tried to fix a trailer turn light.  Now the truck brake & directional lights don't work. The trailer is now totally disconnected. I've replaced (with NEW) the fuse in the fuse box & the flashers (2) with NEW in the fuse box. Checked the fuses in the engine compartment, they seem OK/working. Replaced the 7-way with a NEW 7-way (and neighbor help, he found a 'key' for my non-standard Dodge wire colors). The running lights & the back-up lights work on the truck.  Still the problems with the brake & directionals persist.
