  1. Led third brake light

    Don't you love that...... I hate it when the color of the wires or fuse is different. I was just working on my daughters '03 Sentra and the Nissan factory shop manual had the relays reversed for the electric trunk release and the electric windows. I don't think swapping the location of the relays can be called dyslexia! I wish I knew what was going on here. I thought most of my problems with LED's staying on in my '06 was the bulb check circuitry. I can't say that is what's causing it in my '92. But then, I have never gotten a bulb out indication in the '06 for any of the bulbs that have burned out over the years. So, what good is it really to have a bulb out monitor..........
  2. If you don't know how very great the Disabled American Veterans association is; how can I express how very greatful to them that I am!!!! They helped me so very much in dealing with the VA (while I was not a DAV memeber!), that I became a DAV life member!!!! They are taking their mobile service van to Nevada to offer their services totally free to veterans. If you have any questions, go visit them! Take any records you have with you and they will show you what they can do.
  3. Led third brake light

    I believe you! Maybe I was remembering the check circuitry from my '06......? I have had this same problem happen with my '92 though. My dash lights glow dimly for the check engine and another indicator. To solve this problem with my LED turn signals, I paralleled in incandescent bulbs in with the front LED's and these problems went away (At least on the turn signals. Dash still lights up........ But that's a different circuit!)
  4. Radiator and Coolants

    Make sure you use Delo ELC coolant! It is an H.O.A.T. coolant (Hybrid Organic Acid Technology), just like the Dodge OEM used. DexCool is an O.A.T. (Organic Acid Technology) and is inferior. Don't go by color!! Means literally nothing!! If you want to do some research, just 'google' this: "Dexcool class action lawsuit" Mikes right! The green stuff has a life of 12 months from date of manufacture. (Notice I didn't say from date of installation or purchase......)
  5. Back in college (2009) We got in a new piece of equipment and it had a brand new 12V with a VE injection pump......... Somehow, somewhere these iconic engines are still being produced!! (South America?)
  6. Led third brake light

    I'm betting it is the bulb check circuit that is putting power (or ground) through the circuit to test the incandescent filament. I've had this same problem on multiple Dodge pickups. If it were a short to ground, it would be lighting an incandescent bulb as well as killing the batteries if it sat for a while.......
  7. Found out today that the NAPA fall filter sale (At least for Twin Falls) will be: Oct 16 through Oct 21, 2017 Stock up!!
  8. So what's the $$ gonna turn out to be?
  9. Led third brake light

    I wonder if Dodge uses solid state relays to switch these on and off......... All that is happening here is there is enough current available to light an LED (But an incandescent won't light). Do this: Plug it back in and leave it. Come back in 30 minutes and again in an hour and see if the cargo light remains on.......?
  10. Led third brake light

    I hear you. Sure seems odd when you encounter this. From the way you described the problem; your new cargo light is LED also? I hooked into the cargo light power (Disconnected the OEM light, and ran wires out of the cab and into my shell) on Meg ('06 Ram) and I remember that every time I checked there was 12V power to the cargo light. I just assumed it was part of a bulb check circuit because it's never enough to light an incandescent bulb and it doesn't seem to drain the battery. In Meg, instead of using a diode, I put two bulbs in the cargo light housing and another switch. I can now turn on the cargo light inside the shell either from the dash or from inside the shell.
  11. I don't know if we missed this or not. This was back in 2013 that they built engine number 2,000,000 for Dodge Ram PickUps. It is a video that follows the engine through it's assembly. I think it is pretty cool to watch! Cummins Builds Ram Engine # 2 Million
  12. So it needs to go into a '99 or older to meet emissions? One little thing I noticed - No Where was a price tag mentioned....... That kind of Scares me!!
  13. Cummins 2.8L Crate Engines I can't believe you guys haven't told me about these! I can see these going into lots of projects.......
  14. Led third brake light

    Does it have loose wires or a plug / socket? If it is a plug-in you will have to work harder if you need to change how it is wired....
