Mitsub plant 02 won't start and its not the batt

Tasha, lots of possibilities here, so we need more info on what is happening. When you say it won't start, do you mean:
  • Nothing happens at all when you turn the key (dead silence)?
  • The engine cranks, but it does not fire?
  • The engine does not crank, but it makes a clicking noise under the hood?
  • And how are you so certain it is not the battery (or at least the connections to the battery)?
Let me know more about what is and is not happening, and I'll see if I can help you diagnose the problem.

Engine won't turn over, no clicking or anything. Total silence. Battery terminals have been cleaned, battery is newer...... when ignition is turned on, air conditioning runs, lights do not dim, radio works...

try giggling the shifter or starting it in neutral--possible interlock switch failing. Also could be your anti-theft system--try using other factory key

I turn the key and nothing happens..silence. Battery tested bad so i replaced it and still have the same results I have checked the ignition fuses and they check good

Have you cleaned the cable connections? Check the ground wire also, both ends and clean. If still nothing check the starter solenoid

Turn key and nothing just silence.

It could be either one of those. If your ignition key has the little chip(black plastic with metal in the middle) on it between the teeth and handle it could be the VAT security module or the key itself. Does this happen sporadically or is this the first time that has happened?

When I turn the key to crank my Dodge Ram 2500, nothing happens.

Is this a manual or automatic tranny? I would be looking at the gearshift selector, did you try starting it in neutral, as opposed to park, if it's an auto, and how about a switch on the clutch pedal to prevent starting in gear, if it's a manual? How about wiring to the neutral safety start switch? Any fuses, circuit breakers been checked? What year truck?
I'm just throwing things out there, just to check before you spend any more money that you don't have to.
I could use a battery, right now- got an extra one?

Good luck and keep us posted.
