Jim, I have the same problem. Looking in my Chilton's manual doesn't help much. But, if you look at the firewall from the driver's seat, where the clutch master cylinder rod goes through the firewall, you will see a plastic cylinder around the rod. There should be a wire that goes from that plastic cylinder and connects into a wiring harness. The manual says that if you separate the clutch position sensor wire from the wiring harness, and jumper the two contacts at that connection in the wiring harness, you will bypass the clutch position sensor switch. I have not yet done this but it is the recommended method of debugging starting problems. If you continue to have problems, I can email to you the section of the Chilton's manual for evaluating the starting system. At least I think I can get my computer to copy this section of the manual. The manual does not give the location of the clutch position sensor but that is the only location i can find that meets the description. I have a 1999 Ram 3500 4WD diesel quad cab.
