just purchased a 2016 1500 outdoorsman with rambox. last night the boxes were locking when i locked the truck. now the drivers side box doesnt lock but the passenger side does. is there a setting i unknowingly switched or some other thing i did to switch it? all i did today was add all my tools to the box.

Pretty common issue. It will still lock with your key, but see this video for the root problem:

Just replaced both of mine on my Ramboxes. Easy DIY fix. Had 2 on hand, and now picked up 2 more and keep them in the glovebox.
Little deceiving when you lock your truck as you can hear the actuator working. Only way to know if they are locked is to physically check them by pushing the button.

finally got some time to mess with my truck. fixed the box lock. took 15ish minutes. super easy. gonna buy some more clips before prices skyrocket anymore. i can see this being an issue again in the future with the other clips.

Glad you got it fixed. I bought some metal carb linkage clips for mine for the next time this happens.
