Hi:
It sounds like the solenoid went bad on the starter. What you need to do is have a helper turn the key to the start position and check the smaller wire on the starter for power. There should be 12 volts in the start position.

If there is power, remove the starter and have it bench tested at a local parts store.

Let me know what you find.

Hi:
I'm glad it's up and running again. I had Dodge trucks all my life and have always had good luck with them. But I agree, they are getting harder and harder to fix. They all are anymore. Thank god for technology (LOL). I miss the days of points and condenser and a good old 4 barrell under the hood. If the car broke, there was only a couple things that could be causing the problem.

Take care and let us know if there are any questions in the future.
