Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a Astroflex remote vehicle starter and when I use it my truck cranks but will not start.

I have a Astroflex remote vehicle starter model 310-052-300. My vehicle is a 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 diesel, the Astroflex was installed the same day I bought my truck brand new in 2004. The installation was done professionally by an Astroflex dealer and have never had an issue with the Astroflex until now. When I use the remote my truck cranks but will not start. Replaced the batteries as I had never replaced them in 10 years. Tried to start my truck via the remote again and does the same thing, cranks but does not start. Truck starts fine using the key but will not start using the astroflex remote.

SOURCE: electrical problem

there is a short on the car electric circuits, or inside the ignition block. If I was in your shoes I would start by replacing the ignition block. This can probably fix it. If it doesn't, you should check the ignition circuit backward to find the short.

SOURCE: 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.

Have you had the rear diff serviced regularly? If not, this is most likely the cause. Metal builds up on the sensor, and "shorts" it out. Keeping your diff serviced every 30K should help them last longer.

your starter solenoid is out. may have even blown a fuse under the hood in the fuse box in front of the driver. i believe it is a 30 amp.

Nissan Altima 2000 Manual. Recently had remote starter installed and was working fine for a few days. This morning I remote started the vehicle and when I came out car was off. Try starting the car up...

the remote starter is not going to damage the starter, but if wired wrong it could damage the wiring or fuses, or run the battery down from a short.
