Changed out headlights/tailights, now have electrical issues
Looking for any ideas on this subject: I recently installed new headlight/taillights on my 2004 RAM 1500 SLT and now every time I use the turn signals they sound an alarm and the "lamps out" light flashes. This only happens at night when I have turned on the headlight switch. This is what I have attempted thus far to remedy the problem: replaced ALL bulbs on the exterior of the truck, replaced the headlight switch, replaced the multi-function switch and last replaced both tail light socket panels. Everything was working fine before I replaced them, so I pulled them back out and just left the bulbs in and still same problem, as soon as I turn on the headlight switch everything gets weird. As long as I don't turn on the headlight switch everything functions perfectly. I thought that maybe I have a bad relay but it appears it's built in and not replaceable? That seems strange, but from what I've read that's what I understand it to be.
Has anyone ever experienced this problem before, or have any suggestions? I hate to take it to a dealer. Would there be a code that I can trace back that would give a better idea of where to look?
I could really use some help and ideas.
