I have a 02 1500 2 wheeldrive 4.7 litre dodge ram, over the summer i had a
flip out sun roof installed they took out the dome light ,which i think is
connected to third brake light at top of roof.Any ideas how to get light
working again ,like the easiest way ,i think they took the wiring with the
dome light out ????

run a wire to the headrest ??
I would guess the Center High Mounted Stop Lamp (CHMSL) was not working
before the sunroof was installed. If this seems probable or at least
possible to you, remove the bulb and test it with a continuity tester. If
the bulb tests "good" then test for 12 vdc at the bulb socket while the
brake pedal is depressed. There are several wires from the brake switch to a
couple of electronic devices including the brake lights. I would think the
CHMSL wires would be included in the bundle going toward the brake lights
rather than be routed singularly through the headliner area.
