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 V-Leds.com Hope this helps some. Take care and good luck with your upgrades.
thanks Goose for the feedback. I would really appreciate it if you would let me know where and how you install the resistor and do you need only one for all the interior lights. cheers Dud
