Question about 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab Sport
My 4.7L motor will at random times simply not start, not turn over, won't even buzz. Most notably this problem has presented itself the two times I had the exhaust worked on but it will do this at a restaruant, after work when I want to go home or just when you go inside a store for a minute. I have never had this problem when it is starting cold. I had the truck towed to the dealer (because that's the only way they would look at the problem) and they replaced a WCM in the stearing column.
The next week it did it again and several times since then.
I can not solve this but with more information I may be able to help. If your truck is equipped with an automatic trans it could be a problem with the TIP system. See page 305 in owners manual. I do not know what the Tip is but I know that my truck will not crank and it has a TIP system. TIP is not Installed on manual transmissions. If your truck is manual then you have a possible of 4 corrective actions. 1. Ignition switch. The switch is adjustable and maybe out of adjustment. 2. Starter sel-a-noid . Follow the big wire from the starter it should be connected to the selanoid . it can also be part of the starter. 3. The starter could need new brushes. and 4. A loose wire at the selanoid.

When you say not even buzz do you mean no power to anything like the cluster and heater or just the starter is not engaging?
if you have nothing at all then you likely need a ignition switch..
if you only have no crank going on its likely the starter..or a problem with it security system..
to check the security system just observe the dash lamps for a small red light.. if you se it on or flashing when you are unable to start it then the security system is at fault..
