The battery based off of its design and plate size can only supply so many amps. Even a battery that is reading 12 Volts could be in bad enough condition that it wouldn't provide the necessary cranking amps.

SOURCE: changed oil pressure switch,still no oil pressure

The fuel pump on that model runs through the oil pressure switch so that if the truck looses oil pressure,It kills power to the fuel pump to prevent engine damage.you need to find the cause of the low oil pressure reading(possibly a bad oil switch).That would be the cheapest place to start,or have it checked with a mechanical gauge.Good luck,

This sounds like the anti theft system is active, you jump start it but it dies out after a few seconds , if this is correct then try another key. the other thing can be a weak battery make sure the battery is fully charged and good,

spray brake cleaner into throttle body and try to start. If it starts your fuel pump failed most likely. If it doesnt fire most likely crank sensor or ignition module failed.

New battery car wont start.


Sounds like it's the alternator. Not charging the battery. Which would explain why it died while driving.

2000 Dodge Ram cargo van trouble starting and once started will not keep running tried jumping battery and no change what should we try next?


Sounds like the alternator is bad (not charging). If your battery is good/charged it should run until the battery is drained. If the battery is bad/not charged the car will die as soon as the cables are taken off as there is not enough juice to run the ignition system. If the alternator is good (but battery bad) the car would still run as the alternator makes power to run the car but becasue the battery is dead/drained there is no power to start the car (hense needing the jump). Have the alternator/charging system tested

Will crank but will not fire


get a spark tester,if there is spark then there is a fuel problem.put fuel spray into the throttle body and see if it starts and dies out.
then it is the fuel pump perhaps.
there are crank and cam sensors that could be a problem. or the ignition module .best thing is to scan it and see if any codes show to point out the defective system.

Engine dies


I had the same problem with my 94 chevy 6.5 diesel,and spent alot of money trying things that people told me to try.I wound up taking it to the dealer and they told me it was the injection pump.They put one in it and that fixed it.It has run great for over a year and a half.This set me back about $4000.00!
