Question about 2003 Dodge Ram Maxi

1 Answer

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 won't start -little red light on dash came on

First turn the key and all dash lights lit up as normal continued turning the key to start and everything died (everything off). Then the little red light on dash came on.  Could this be  just a battery issue? What does that little red light symbolize?  At first we figured battery was weak so we jumped it then we had no throttle control(give it gas and wouldn't do anything, now the throttle body sensor light was on, the ABS light and the brake light were also on.  The little red light was still on we believe. The truck had been fine when it was parked in the morning this happened at the end of the work day.  Nothing was left on to run down the battery.

CHeck for loose vacuum lines. At times spraying carb cleaner or cleaning the carb before adjusting helps. Check the idle up, you may have do do some adjustments. Check also the timing.

In the 2003 ram 1500 laramie 5.7 does the check engine light come on when you turn the key on

It is normal for all the lights on the dash to blink when turning the key ON for the first time. However, the light should turn off after few seconds. If it does not, you should better get the codes read.
