    I had the same thing happen to me yesterday. According to the tow truck driver I talked to this is a common problem with this truck. He gave me a quick fix, there is a tab on the console by the gear shift. Take out the tab and use something long to press the button inside and this will release the gearshift so you can drive it.

This truck has a park lock, this locks out the shifter unless the brake light is pressed, the electric solenoid that disengages the lock pin is powered by the brake light circuit, so the 1st thing you do is make sure the brake light work, if they do you have much more serious issue like a sticking release cable from the park lock solenoid.

    There is a way to override this switch when this happens, it is the owners manual under roadside emergencies i think, I do not have a manual for this year. You can google it and I am sure the way it is done will show up, Google this"override park lock" and add the make year and model. As far as cost goes at least $100.00 to diagnose and more to repair depending on parts needed,.

On the upper grill side of the headlight assy. there
should be 1 or 2 push pins that hold the seal on the
headlight assy to the front of the fender. Also check
for a guide/push pin on the inner top of the assy on
the outer fender side. That should be all there is to
hold the headlight in place. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how hard is it to install pickup coil in the

The pick-up coil/stator is easily replaced in a dodge distributor, and once you have removed the distributor cap and the ignition rotor, then just dis-connect the wire connector from the pick-up coil/stator and lift it straight up and out of the distributor, and the distributor does not have to be removed or dis-assembled to replace the pick-up coil/stator. There are two alignment tabs on the pick-up coil/stator that will match up with the distributor cap when the pick-up coil/stator is properly installed. Here are two images to help assist you.

How many miles on that rig? The 4.7 motor is a great motor.

Sounds like a fuel starvation issue. Might also be a trans issue. Does the trans seem to be shifting properly?? Could it be starting in 2nd gear which is the "limp mode" for Chrysler trannies?

Won't turnover when cranking to start.


If it's electric just take the line off intake and put it in a cup or something to catch the gas. Turn on key for a moment and see if any gas comes out. You can usually hear pump in take run. If it's mechanical pump, take it off intake into a cup and crank the motor over a couple times. Do all this with engine cold. If no gas, change pump. Some times changing gas cap helps.

Check the fuel pump fuse and relay under the hood in the fuse panel. If both fuse and relay are good then fuel pump may be at fault, but it seems too new for a fuel pump replacement. Hope this helps. Keep me posted please. Good luck
