Hey spud, from what the tech support told me is that Dodge Rams are kind of funny and don't really like LEDs since they draw so little power...I thought this was given over stock but it's not the first time Dodge has done things kinda funny. Anyway, here is what they told me: The Dodge trucks need an electrical load on the circuit on the circuit for the computer to recognize that it needs to turn on the power. LEDs do not create this load, that is why you are having this problem. You will have to install a load resistor on the circuit to get them to work. Here is the one that you need:
LED BULB OUT WARNING FIX 25 OHM 25W LOAD RESISTOR KIT. I am going to try to get mine soon. Oh yeah, when I get it, it's coming from Hope this helps some. Take care and good luck with your upgrades.
