Hey my dodge ram 1500 wont start. When I turn the key there is nothing and it was running fine yesterday and today it seems like there is no battery life but there is cause I checked it with my multimeter on volts and got 12.96 battery voltage. What could be my problem?

Welcome to the forum, do the dash lites come on, anything? You can also check circuits at the starter relay in power distribution center, under hood. Voltage for load side of relay is hot all the time. Voltage for coil side of relay goes hot with key in the crank position. Did you try cranking in neutral?
