Default dome light problem with my 2013 sport

I have a strange issue with my 2013 RAM sport with the LED lights.. my driver side dome light above will flicker a bit before they go off and sometimes it will do it randomly when they go on. anybody have this problem? i wonder if the dealership will replace it under warranty?

My 2013 Longhorn has the same issue with the same side LED. My dealership has the console on order. They have to replace the entire console since the LED isn't replaceable according to the parts guy. They were on back order a couple of weeks ago but were about to start shipping out. My dealer is supposed to call me when mine comes in. The first time I took it in for it, they said my battery was bad so they put a new battery in and said it fixed the LED issue. The second time I took it in, I took a video of it with my phone and they could see exactly what my complaint was. My night vision isn't what it used to be and when it flickered to dim it rendered the LED useless to me. They are replacing it under the 3yr/36,000 mile warranty.

regardless of whats wrong, anything that's not working correctly this recent into ownership will be covered under warranty. its a huge hassle as you have to take your truck in etc. but at least it will be covered.

Had the same problem with mine at only 3500kms. They replaced the complete overhead console. Also had the driver's side mirror puddle light quit working about the same time which was fixed under warranty as well.

My driver’s side map light (Dome Light) had the same issue and they replaced the whole assembly they said it was in the circuit board and couldn't just replace the single light.

LOL...crazy to come in and read this. My 2013 Sport just started the same thing tonight on drivers side map light. Flickering but not going out. Just shy of 7900 miles, purchased August last year. Curious about mileage or age of truck for rest of you. Guess I will call dealer in morning.

I have just over 10,000 miles on mine but the problem started probably 4,000-6,000 miles ago.
