Question about 1999 Dodge Ram
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.
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.
