i have a 1999 ram and on mine it is the 3157. the 1997 rams were the year before the changes. id have to guess a 1157.

i just googled it and confirmed that it is the 1157. but if i was you id still check. i think 1997 was the year they started the changes about halfway through the year.
the twist lock is the 1157 and the wedge is the 3157. taking the light assembly out is easy. there are 2 torx screws and it just pulls straight out. or you could get on a creeper or crawl under the truck and twist the socket and remove it from the light housing to see what the bulbs base is.

let us know if you have any problems.

Installed the LED's in dome and map lights now the dome light won't turn on using the internal switch unless the map light is on. The map lights won't turn on without the key turned on. When the keys on all 3 work just fine. Any ideas on what it could be. Thanks

A few people have had this problem before. The first place/thing i tell people do to for a fix is to solder 100W 1Ohm Resistors to the LEDs. That usually fixes the problem. Mikeski posted great pics of how it should look HERE he is also a soldering god and his look amazing. It doesnt have to be that perfect, and depending on location may have to be bent a little differently.

as far as the rear dome light it is the same with the resister just solder the resistor across it so each end of the resistor is on a fidderend side/contacct of the bulb


you can get the resistors at your local radio shack for about $2.50 for 2

anyone know a good way to pull out the OEM bulb in the map light up in front between the driver and passenger upper console? I guess my fingers are not small enough to pull the bulb out. I already changed the third brake light, licence plate light to white LED. Also what length is the festoon bulb in the back dome light?

Thanks in advance for any inputs.

The length of the festoon bulb I'm not so sure on, are you looking for an LED replacement?

you can find it at superbrightleds(dot)com, the bulb number is 4410. If you type in 4410 in the search box on the site, select the second option, it should say "Festoon Light Bulbs" than click the second option on the following page, the 4410 x9 LED bulb is the last option.

To get mine out I used a leatherman to wiggle it while just enough pressure to pull out on it without breaking the bulb. Not the fastest way to do it but it's what I had in arms reach at the time
