My 2004 had the same issue and i replaced the transfer pump. It started right up and ran fine until the next morning i was driving it stalled. Now it won't start up not even with starting fluid.

It sounds as if maybe the transfer pump is going bad. chrysler has come out with a retro kit that moves the pump from the side of the engine and puts it in the tank

I have a 2003 Dodge 3500 with a 5.9L Cummins engine in it. It will only start when you use Ether. What do you suggest I do to fix this problem?


Either the fuel pump is not working (or bad fuel pump relay)
Plugged fuel filter.
Not enough fuel pressure.

2007 Dodge 3500 cummins diesel was filled with E85 ethanol


Just drain the tank and refill with diesel fuel. Hit the starter for a second and leave the key on for the fuel to prime. You may have to do this a couple times to get it to start. Run it down the highway at normal cruising speed for a while and it should be ok. I wouldn't worry about the injectors yet unless it doesn't recover on it's own.

Charging problem on 1996 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins Turbo Diesel


I had the same problem on a 94 dodge with the cummins. It seems the crank sensor that reads from a notch on the harmonic balancer was the problem Without this sensor reading that the engine is running the alternator wont charge. Possibly the same problem with yours

04 dodge diesel cuts out while driving at speed


Hi. I had the same problem on my 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins. I went to the dealer and they did a bunch of diagnostics and they replaced my fuel pump. At the same time they put in a retrofit kit that moved the fuel pump to the inside of the gas tank. I have not had the problem since. The cost was about $1,200, but my 100,000 mile drivetrain warranty covered it and I had to pay the $100 deductible.
