Question about 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck
I drove it and then the next day it won't start. I had the starter tested and it is good. All the lights and sensors light up when the key is turned to start and the starter doesn't work. Could it be the neutral switch on the side of the transmission or could the ignition be bad? I can't afford to buy a book so any help would be greatly appreciated.
I know this is gonna sound silly but turn the key on pull the shifter into drove, then put it back in park sharply. i had the same problem and all it was is it wasnt hitting the neutral safty switch cause the cable was streched a little

I had the same problem 2001 ram 2500.I ran a new starter relay wire from under my steering column to my firewall to bypass alarm, starts fine now.
If you want to drive it,pull the starter relay, key in on position and jump the relay,use a test lite to find the ground coming off the neutral switch,you don't want to jump power to that terminal.any of the other 3 won't hurt anything,just find the one that runs the starter...good luck.

I dont know if you figured it out yet, but my truck was doing the exact same thing. I thought it was my factory alarm causing it because it has the starter disable...but it was not. It was actually the harness on the underside of the steering column that had came loose. I grabbed my harness and wiggled it while holding the ignition in the start position. This is pretty typical in Dodge Ram trucks. Good luck and I hope you fixed it.
