I was installing a new cd-deck in my truck and I cut two wires from the
factory wiring harness(yea I know I'm a *******) thinking I needed
them. They were the 12v constant and the 12v ignition wires. When I cut
them I got a spark from I think was the constant. Now my truck won't
start. It turns over and then fires, but then goes back to turning over
and then weakly tries to fire again. I'm thinking it's a fuse, but I
was wondering if it could be anything else. Also I'm having a hard time
removing the ignition fuse that's in the cab. The angle it's in makes
it so the fuse grabber won't grab it. If someone could please help it
would be much appreciated.

Re: 99 dodge ram turns over but won't fire.
Have you tried disconnecting the battery for a minute, then reconnecting it? That may erase the memory in the computer. If that dosen't work you may need to take it to a shop and have them put it on a anilizer to read the trouble codes. (You may even want to purchase one. They actually are getting fairly less expensive now and are a good device to own, since they work on mant different models, brands, and years.) You may have fried your computer when the thing sparked. It would not be uncommon.

Do yourself a HUGE favor. Drop $8 on a radio wiring harness connector. You wire it to the aftermarket radio while sitting at your kitchen table. When done, yank the factory radio and simply PLUG IN the new radio directly into the truck's wiring harness. Done! No cutting of your truck's wires, splicing, taping or hanging upside-down making connections. Plus, when it's time to sell the truck - you can pull out your radio and dump the factory radio back in the truck in no time.
Do you have factory infinity sound. If you do you need a another harness or bypass that infinity system. Also What year is the truck. I know for a dodge ram after 02 is a canbus system. When wiring in the harness leave the blue remote wire alone do not connect from radio harness to the harness that connects to factory harness. Unless you are running to an aftermarket amp. There is a brown wire also that you should not connect leave the remote blue and brown wires alone. this is atleast on a 02 dodge 1500 or newer and 03 or newer 2500+. not sure if this will solve your issue but it fixed my buddies.
It sounds like your speaker wires are touching each other. Was the factory radio an Infinity? They have an amp on each speaker and do not work with aftermarket stereos. Do you have power to the unit? I really need more info to be much help. Your best bet is to buy the radio end wire harness from stereo store, walmart, radio shack or dealer if you didnt cut the truck end off. They only @ $10. Then it is so fast & easy you will never cut the harness out again. Get back to me if you still need help. Good luck and I hope this helped you.
You need to go to your local "best buy" or electronics store and ask them for your car's "stereo wire harness". This will convert the wires from your car to match all the colors from your deck. (green, purple, white, gray, blue, yellow, red, ect. Same on all after market decks. All brands use the same wires) Take that new harness and your deck harness, twist the matching wire colors together, tape them with electrical tape, plug the harness back into the car and deck, and it should be good. Click, click, done. Remember to plug the antenna in as well before you get the deck in.

The stereo side of the wires should be labeled. Check out the12volt.com for a wiring schematic for the truck side. I advise against cutting and splicing wires for a stereo installation though. They make inexpensive harness adapters that will allow you to splice into the stereo harness without cutting into the factory wiring.
