Try running from the relay to pump see if it runs it should...I think its a bad connector under the truck bed or the relay is the culprit?

Not sure on that perhaps give the service dept in the dealership a call on that.....however i do recall on certain vehicles a low oil cut out switch was incorporated to stop engines from being driven with no the oil level Ok??
Do you have a twin tank switch that is not operational?

I have a 2006 Dodge ram diesal It acts like it ran out of gas thing is it just died It wasn't the gas I think it might be the brain so how could I don't troubleshooter It

Firstly dont talk and drive as you lose concentration and spill your drink,saciledge .Right 2006 diesel so its common rail ,now first thing to do is get the multimeter out and check you have a pulse to a injector when cranking the engine ,then work from their so if you have a pulse to a injector then its fuel ,now in the tank is a low pressure lift pump which supplies fuel when starting but lots of vehicles dont run this pump all the time ,now iam not familar with this american vehicle as to layout but at the end of the day its a diesel which i do most of my work on here in spain ,anything with more than 3 cylinders has to be a diesel here owing the price of fuel ,right check for a pulse first then slacken a diesel fuel pipe to one of the injectors and see if you have fuel pressure ,then post your findings and we will work out where to hit it and with size hammer that will fix it

I have a '99 dodge ram 1500 v8 5.2 this morning i

Could be junk in the fuel filter screen, or the pump may have given up.
I assume you know for a fact there is fuel in the tank and there are no venting issues.
I don't list a fuel filter for your truck, so the only filter is a screen in the tank before the pump.
if nothing comes out of the line, you may have to take the tank out and pull the pump to check it out.

2006 dodge stratus looses power after running for a while

either your fuel filter or fuel pump is clogged from all the debris from the gas tank , you are going to have to change out the filter or empty your gas tank and pull your fuel pump out and change your filter on your pump out.

1997 dodge ram 5.9 fuel pump troubleshooting truck ran fine was low on fuel stopped it went to restart n wouldnt fire poured gas in throttlebody n truck fired off n then died

If the pump has run down on fuel and the fuel pump ran DRY , then it is possible that there is air in the system and the flow can be restrictive. The fuel lines have to be opened out to allow the flow till the air moves out of the system.
The fault will clear one the pump clears this fault .Now you can connecct back and start .

98 dodge ram 1500 Truck ran out of gas. It will start w/ starter fluid sprayed in filter but will not stay running.

Since the fuel pump is in the gas tank, your pump picked up debris, and dirt on the bottom of the tank and ran it into your fuel filter.
Replace fuel filter, and check fuel pump fuse.
Running your vehicle with less than a 1/4 tank of gas is hard on the pump, because the fuel pump uses gas to cool it.
Please let me know what you find.

Need to replace fuel pump for my 1998 dodge ram 4x4.

there is an easier way to replace the fuel pump than dropping the tank. I replaced mine last week in about 30 min. I simply took the bed off only six or eight bolts depending on bed size, a few tail light wires and filler neck and over flow. might need someone to help get the bed off though.
