Question about 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck

1 Answer

2000 Dodge Ram 5.9L with A/T will not start

Every once and awhile I will attempt to start my truck and it will not turn over. It acts like it is in any other gear but neutral or park. I replaced the battery, starter relay, starter, and ignition switch and gear selector linkage grommet. I hear the relay click when I turn to the START position. I think it is a wiring issue. I thought it might be the Park Neutral switch on the transmission but didn't think it would fail just some of the time.

My 2000 dodge ram 1500 will not start. All of the lights and radio work but when i turn the key nothing happens. It doesnt make any noises when i turn the key. It has plenty of gas. I switched some fuses...

Have experienced this problem twice in life. Once on my 1968 Oldsmobile and recently on my daughters 2001 Dodge truck. Crawled under it and beat on starter with a hammer. The brushes wear thin and at some point lose contact with armature. Was able to get contact, start the vehicle and get it to a more suitable repair location. If this works, remember it is a temporty fix. The brushes and/or starter will need replaced. Good luck.

Cranks, won't start strong smell of gas 5.9

Sounds flooded. Let it sit awhile and when you go to start it hold pedal to the floor. You might also have vehicle nearby for jump start, cranking flooded engine can wear on battery
