2006 dodge Ram 3500 Mega Cab diesel. All electrical dead

Asked by Sep 04, 2014 at 05:12 PM about the 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 SLT Mega Cab 4WD SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Turned key to start truck.  Guages fluttered and then everything went dead.  Noticed later
that the brake lights and highmount brake light were on, and a small red light in bottom
right hand corner of the instrument cluster was on.  Had to disconnect the battery.  Any
ideas as to what might be fried?

Sounds like a stuck brake light switch. Try pumping the brake pedal a few times. That might free up the switch . If that shuts off the brake lights replace the switch. If not, unplug the brake light switch. If the brake lights go out replace the switch. HTH. -Jim
