1998 Dodge Ram V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles
OK, where do I start. My 98 dodge ram 1500 5.9L recently died on me. After attempting to jump start the truck the gauge lights started clicking and I could not start. It cranks fine and everything works as far as windows, wipers, lights and all accessories. I do NOT have spark to the plugs and the fuel pump does NOT turn on. I bypassed the fuel system relay and the pump does work and I get pressure to the rail but only after bypassing it. It does not prime when key goes to on position. Also, the check engine light comes on and shuts off like normal with PCM plugged in but also after I removed the PCM. I checked the ASD relay as well as all other relays and fuses. Everything checked out good. I replace the Crank Position Sensor however still nothing. I tried 2 different OBDII scanners and both gave me a link error. I have 12v getting to the PCM and grounds seem fine. The dodge dealership diagnosed the problem as a bad ground off the battery stating it had 200 ohms resistance. I have replaced that and still nothing. I have 12v to all the relays and fuses. What could this problem be? This has been going on for 3 weeks and is causing me to lose work days. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Dustin
