I haven't posted much here, but I have almost 200 posts at 'another' Dodge forum. I can't find what I am looking for, so I figured I'd try you guys.

I have a weird issue with the electrics. Unless the key is on, NOTHING works:

  • Headlights or parking lights
  • Horn
  • Dome lights
  • Key fob and power locks
As soon as I turn the key (without starting), truck 'comes to life' and everything works as normal. Shut the key off, everything dies, except the overhead console which struggles to live for about 3 seconds, then it too goes dark.


I have removed and completely disassembled my fuse block under the hood, I noticed one corroded trace, but it goes INTO the board and I can't jump it; I don't know where it goes.


ALL of the fuses are good, not blown.


I didn't test any of the relays, not quite sure how I would do that.


I have replaced my ignition switch; someone mentioned that may be the issue (didn't help).


New fuse blocks are $500 :Wow1:


Anyone have any suggestions?

Check whats called the Auto Shut Down Relay. It's a relay in your Integrated Power Module (IPM) or what's commonly called the fuse box.

Check for an IOD (Ignition Off Draw) fuse. Could be that the IOD fuse is missing or blown.
