Question about 1999 Dodge Ram

1 Answer

99 Dodge 1500 will not turn over

2WD, 175K miles, 5.2L. The truck was intermittently starting. Checked the battery and starter they were both good. Replaced battery cable to starter and replaced the starter relay. Truck started normally for about a week. Now it will not turn over at all. Replaced ignition switch and tumbler assy, swapped fuses no results. Headlights and dash lights do not dim while attempting start. radio and AC go of when in start position. Attempted to move gear selector around in park and in nuetral with no results either.

    there is no clicking from anywhere. When you turn to start there is nothing. I have not tried bypassing the neutral switch either. I will try that today and let you know.

  • carlj_newton Jan 05, 2009

    Okay I attempted the bypass of the neutral switch with no results. Also I found a bad ground and repaired it but no change either.

  • carlj_newton Jan 07, 2009

    Checked all grounds, anyway the starter I had checked and was told was good is in fact bad. Thanks to all.

no, not the battery. If the battery problem it won't crank, so check if there is a gas going to the carburetor or fuel injector. If yes there is a gas, then check if there is a spark on the spark plugs when you crank it. If yes, call me.

Assuming you replaced the solenoid with the starter, it may be the relay. If the relay is not making a good connection, it might have trouble throwing the solenoid. The relay should be in the relay box under the hood. You can break the relay open and watch it work while someone turns the key to verify the problem.

2001 dodge ram shuts off intermittently, restart ok no mil.


You are experiencing what is called a CCD Bus short in the instrument cluster circuit board. (chrysler calls it the "chrysler collision detection buss) it is how all of the controllers and modules communicate on that vehicle. Get a new one and you should have no problems, and used ones are a HUGE gamble. Other vehicles that are extremely bad for this are, caravans, neons, sebring coupe/conv, strates, and cirrus. It will also cause a no start condition that is EXTREMELY hard to catch.
