    Hello everyone, first time poster here.

    I just bought myself a 2013 Ram R/T and I'm having an issue where my traction control and tow/haul switch are not working. I am thinking they might be unplugged from behind since there is no backlight when my lights are on. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    You could remove the bezel and see if they are plugged in

    ^^^what he said^^^. Also double check ALL of the fuses to make sure you don't have a blown one.

    Here is a video about upgrading the radio. It shows you how to remove the bezel.

    Warning: If you are running the uconnect 3.0, this video will put the mod in your head to upgrade to a better unit.

    I disconnected the blue connector from my BCM during my remote start install last week and THOUGHT I had it seated completely and locked down, but I did not. I went for a drive the next day and my tow haul, exhaust brake, and traction control buttons were all dead. Once I seated the plug into the BCM properly they worked. Have you done any electrical accessory installs lately or been up under the dash?

    I'm having the same issue. I pulled the bezel off and all connections are tight, and all fuses appear to be good.

    Actually I think I found my problem. I pulled the console covers off and unplugged that module. I found that it only had 3 pins coming out and from my basic wiring knowledge, its power ground and illumination (red, black, orange). There is multiple wires on the plug but only those 3 pins on the module. Im sure thats my issue. Did you check the back and see how many pins are coming out of it??

    i just started to have this issue after a audio system install and now the traction control and tow/haul switches don't work. i also removed to double check the connections and they are properly connected. has anyone else had this issue ?

    So my tow/haul , traction control , AND 4x4 lights don't work and I can't engage 4wd due to this. Last night I installed led headlights and fog lights but they came with a module for each light to allow them to work with my '14 ram 1500. Also check engine light is on. Any thoughts on which fuse number to check? I didn't have my dash apart for this so it can't be a connector. Fuse makes more sense doesn't it!
