Question about 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck
Check the camshaft position sensor inside the distributor. remove the distributor cap. take a volt meter and use either a paper clip or a small pin to insert into the back of the distributor connector (yellow wire). connect the positive side of voltmeter to yellow wire. rotate engine with starter until the rotor is pointed toward the rear of vehicle. with the ignition on( engine not running) the voltmeter should say 5 volts. if there is no voltage check the voltage on supply wire . with the key on there should be approximately 8.0 volts. if voltage is presant, install the probes of the voltmeter into the signal wire (tan/yellow) and crank the engine over to observe the voltage reading. the meter should read 5.0 volts indicating that the ignition signal is pulsing properly. if the camshaft sensor fails either test (replace it).
