Default Brake Light Out Message.

So I fire up my truck, and I get a message in the EVIC screen showing that the right side brake light is out. I was a little pissed because my truck has the LED tail lights. I was under the impression that the lights would last longer than 3 months. Well I get home to check it out, and the brake light and signal are both working. Anyone else have any problems with the LED tail lights, or false warnings from the EVIC system?

Thanks

I have the LEDs in my Laramie and have not seen that message or any other. I'd swing by your dealer and have them query the BCM for DTCs. You may have an intermittent connection issue.

Sorry mis read your original post, there is some info going around that they had issues with one series of the LED taillight units, did you check if your cab break light is working? if it is I would go to my dealer and have the tails checked out.

I seem to remember a recall here in the US regarding false brake light warnings on the LED equipped Rams. Mine wasn't part of the recall but you might want to look into it.

I had my tail light warning come on but it was my centre brake light that was out. Dealer changed the bulb. Happened just after a drive through wash. I think it got a lil wet in there.

Had a similar message for the right rear turn signal the other day. I'm about due a service so I'll get them to check it out at the same time.

Had to have the whole tail light replaced on ours. Same thing message telling us that the right rear taillight was not working and then the next minute it was. Our dealer told us that there is going to be a recall but it hasn't been done yet, at least in Canada
