Ignition or starter relay should be checked first.
Faulty ignition switch might be an issue.
You will still need an ignition source before you think about the push button start.
A friend has the same problem, and its a computer issue. (underhood, pass side low on firewall)
best of luck to ya.

SOURCE: wont start

There's only 2 more things that I can think of, check the fuse for the ignition, then the computor itself, you did everything else.It might be the problem and may not.

SOURCE: installed new ignition switch in

Does the key have a chip in it ? I'm not familiar with the car but it sounds like you might be at odds with the anti theft system. Check with the dealer and see what information they have. Good Luck

SOURCE: my dodge 1500 ram 5.9

if you have power to the fuse and beyond, follow that circuit through the ignition ,, I'd bet thats where your problem is, its going to be the circuit that goes to the relay itself,, since thats where you seem to be having the problem,

SOURCE: Can the pcm cause the starter not to turn in my 2000 dodge neon?

Dude I think you have a neutral safety switch problem which sucks as you've replaced everything but it. Try this if you want...just had the same problem. Think mine is either start relay or neutral safety switch. Just took small wire going to clip on starter (brownish) and bared area of wire 6 inches from clip (do not cut) and wrapped bare end of new wire around it, taped with electrical tape, ran that wire to a push button ( I used a horn relay button from Canuck Tire) and wire from other side of button to battery. Turn ignition on,,, push button and instant start. Make sure car is in park. Will replace defective part later but it'll get you to work or wherever and it'll prove it is not the starter motor. Cost of temporary repair.... $6.00 :D If you have 12 volts going to starter on all wires with ignition engaged and nothing happens then you have a bad starter motor period. check ground wires as well.

Starter relay

Depends. When you turn the key to start, the only thing that has power is the outside lights and the starter relay. In the on position everything but the starter should have power. So that will have to be sorted out. If some things are dead with the key on, either you have lost power between the battery and the fuse box, or the key switch is faulty.

99 dodge ram 1500 5.2l no power when I turn the key

Could be a loose connection at your battery, check the battery terminals, trace battery leads to there ending locations for loose connections. check all fuses, or at the worst, your starter switch. 85% sure its starter switch pictured below.

When i turn my key to the start position the ignition start/run fuse blows. 2004 ram 1500 3.7 engine

probably a bad starter solenoid, first remove the negative battery cable, then remove the two wires from your starter, wrap them in black tape so they wont short out on anything, repl,ace your fuse and hook battery back up and turn key to start, no blown fuse-bad starter, if it blows the fuse it's a wiring short and you should take it to a qualified mechanic
