I recently discovered when I put on my Left turn signal it will blink normal 3 times then go to the hyper flash and pop up on the dash as left rear indicator failure. I checked every fuse on the truck as well as replaced all the bulbs in the rear tail lights. The problem still exist. I also noticed that the left tail light is very dim compared to the right. When you tune the blinker on on the left the tail light will go out and only the reverse light will blink very dim . You can also see the blink in the right tail light faintly. The whole assembly will dim. I really do not want to take it to a dealer. Please help.
I like how the factory '14+ tail lights look and, of course, OEM light housing durability is typically superior to that of aftermarket components.
Anyway, I have considered swapping the factory bulbs to 7444 LEDs (in white or red) and seeing how well they work in the stock housings. I am expecting to need a resistor kit, as I have had to do with past LED conversions on my last truck. Thoughts? Anybody else done this?
Thanks for any input!
The first issue is the puddle/domelight's. I first noticed the issue when the puddle lights were flickering when the unlock button was pushed or the door was opened. Also, the interior dome lights would not come on when the door was opened. I've pushed the overhead switch to the on position and sometimes they would flash on quickly and shut off, but most of the time not come on at all. The dome lights come on when the individual buttons are pushed, but not at all with the overhead switch. Anyone know where the fuse is that controls the overhead switch?
My second issue is with the left turn signal. On the DIC I got a turn indicator failure for the left rear. The indications are with the blinker activation, the mirror/dash blinker lights will flash normal for about three seconds and then pulse quickly, followed by DIC message. *edit* Brake lights (left) also done activate.
My first action was replacing the bulbs, however that did not fix the problem. When I returned home, I troubleshot the bulbs by placing the lighting switch from auto to running lights and the lights came on, so I know the bulbs harness and wiring are working perfectly fine. I have checked the fuses in the engine compartment, number 14 I believe which is labeled trailer stop/left turn I believe. Any ideas on this issue?
I would like to troubleshoot the issues prior to taking it to the dealer under warranty 30 mins away.
The front passenger side marker light has died on me. The blinker works, but no marker light. And I'll be damned if I can figure out how to get to it. I can get to the headlight bulb no problem, but can't figure out how to get to the marker light on the passenger OR driver's side. And the manual is no help at all. It says to just turn and pull, but there's no stinking bulb to tun and pull!
Anyone got this figured out yet?
