I have a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 Hemi 4x4 - with remote control start. I didn't drive it for a while so we had to jump it and it worked fine. After doing this 2 or 3 times (within a 6 month period) - we jumped it and drove it a bit, then turned it off as usual. The next day we put a charger on it for a couple of house - tried it and it wouldn't start so we tried to jump it again and nothing - no click from the solenoid - instrument panel lights up and works fine - lots of juice in the battery - took it to a dodge dealer and they tried replacing the unit that reads the key in the ignition, the tpin(?) And the fuse panel. Still no go. Have you run across this problem before? Thanks!

Please help. Got it my truck started up then stalled. Started it again, it ran for a few seconds then stalled again. After the 4th attempt, nothing at all. The engine would not turn over. Still have plenty of power for lights etc. There is no theft deterant system on the truck. Any suggestions. Could it be the fuel system.

Could be how I check is remove air filter. If you can get the breather tube off at the carburator that is ideal. Spray in starting fluid. If truck starts but dies. That would lean to fuel pump. Next you would have to check your relays for fuel pump and automatic shutdown device (ASD). Also checking for a blown fuse can save you some money too.

You mentioned that it won't do anything. Is the starter not working either?

When you turn key to on dash lights up except volt gauge and no fuel pump when you turn key to start nothing. I checked wires on alternator plug black wire has ground green wire nothing ran 12 volts to green wire when I do this fuel pump comes on and fuel gauge works and truck starts up.

U need to ck. For 12 volts at the red wire on the back of the alternator.U got very lucky probing that green wire. Never do that it can cause fire or a lot of damage. Something isn't sending voltage properly. Ussally power is sent on red or orange wires only. Hopefully we can track this down without to much trouble. Is this a 1500 2500 or 3500.

The large wire that bolts to alternator has voltage from battery. The pig tail plug has 2 wires a black one that is showing ground and a dark green one that's shows nothing. That's the wire I put switched power on and volt gauge on dash started working and fuel pump came on truck started up. It is a 1500 2wd

START BY CHECKING THE OUTER MAXI FUSE PANEL UNDER THE HOOD, THEN THE ONE INSIDE FOR SIGNS OF VOLTAGE. SOMETHING HAS TO BE BLOWN. THE OWNER MANUAL WILL DIRECT U TO THE FUSE PANELS. IT SOUND LIKE A MAXI FUSE UNDER THE HOOD. I WILL START RESEARCHING WHY IT STARTED WHEN U JUMPED THE GREEN WIRE.

Recently ive been hearing a slight engine ticking noise. Today it was pouring when I went through a large puddle, I stopped at a store shortly after, came back 10 mins later and the truck won't start. Im getting full power on dash, no check engine light, it starts to turn over then sounds like it just locks up, I think I can hear solenoid starting but can't be positive that's what I'm hearing. Don't know if the puddle is irrelevant or this is from the ticking rattling noise. Is there anything I can try to get it out of this parking lot besides pushing it?

First mistake was driving through the puddle you probably got water in one of the modules. Check items in pic although I'm not sure you can check relay as it may be built into power module

Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Dodge Ram V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 106000 miles

When it get's below 40 at night my truck won't start in the morning. It doesn't even crank or try to turn over. It is completely dead. I have to jump start it. The colder it is the longer it takes to start. Once it starts, it runs fine and turns over fine all day no matter how cold it is. I replaced the battery thinking that was the problem. I had the alternator, starter and the electrical system all tested, they check out fine. About two weeks before it got cold my horn went out, it started beeping all by itself and then quit working completely. I thought there might be some kind of short that was slowly draining the battery so I pulled the horn fuse but that didn't help. Any suggestions?

If it jump starts, there has to be a corroded connection. Have you checked the ground to the engine block, terminals on the starter, battery terminals?

Ok there is a fuse panel in the dash. Sounds like when u open the l/f door u will see fuse panel cover in the end of the dash. On the right side under the glove box near the kick panel there is another one.
