Small LED Light in Overhead Console
 
So there's an overhead (maybe LED?) light in the overhead console that shines directly straight down into the center console. Mine is located near the rear window power slider button.
My question...Mine blinks on an off at random. Has anyone experienced this issue? Has anyone replaced their light. Tried to access it?

Thanks

Wayne

the Ram website calls that the ASH TRAY light
mine has never blinked
to me it almost worthless, but i keep my headlight rheostat switched turned quite low
the radios lighting is what i use to see down there at night

Mine stays on. If your is randomly blinking maybe a loose wire or a bulb problem

yea i didnt like the green so i set out to find a way to change it. it is a LED with two wires that run to it. I had a random LED light in RED just laying around and it fit/ wedged perfectly in the slot where the green one was. spliced the wires in and all done.

Ramfd
i have a question for you
you had the console out of the overhead
just what the heck is the other round depression for ??

lots of members have tried guessing at what it is, no one knows for sure

Ramfd 11-04-2012 12:54 AM

you know I really couldnt tell ya. there didnt appear to be any room behind it for any options. Andi can say I really did't put much thought into it. I was so focused on the LED project.

I like the red led better than mine. Think I may have to swap in now instead of just disconnecting it. How long dies it take to pop that trim off?

Thanks for the responses. I like the red LED also. Ill try it..

By the way, if you just pull down on the rear of the whole console, it pops right out of the clips.

Ramfd 11-04-2012 07:32 PM

yes that is right it just pops right off with a slight tug. be careful with the rear window slider swtich the tabs are fragile, i broke one of mine and now i need a new switch and they are not easy to come by. the dealer here has them on back order indefinitley.
