I have a 1996 1500. It will start sometime and not others. Put a new fuel pump in and nothing. Noticed the fuel pump doesn't turn on every time. I have no spark either. Any ideas.

First thought is a bad ignition switch. Check all body wiring grounds for tightness or rust especially near the computer.

no fuel? only means a clogged fuel filter, a bad fuel pump relay, or faulty fuel pump. Starter switch sometimes but rarely occur, but worth checking if nothing else fixes your problem.

Sounds like you need a new key to me. When they start and die like that, the security system is not seeing a good key. This has to be done at a Dodge or Chrysler dealership. They can cut a new key and fob combo their as well as program them with their scan tool. It will cost about $200.00 to do this. The two cranks to start is a weak fuel pressure regulator. Probably located on the the fuel pump. May be serviced seperate now from the fuel pump assembly. Ask the dealer they will know.

The pump is in the tank. The tank has to be droped to replace it. Pumps can go bad at anytime without warning. A failing pump you may not have noticed but can go bad when sitting. Try checking the autoshut down relay and fuses assiciated with the pump. Seems its not getting power or has failed.

No fuel pressure/shutting off

Try putting a new fuel pump in it or check the fuel tank switching unit it might have failed. (switch or unit under truck).I would go under truck and try to isolate one tank both electricaly and mechanicaly the see how it runs.
