My 1994 dodge ram 2500 diesel will not turn off with the key.


Check the fuel shut off solenoid on the drivers side of the engine. That's not the proper name but right now it escapes me. See if it has power and is shutting when the key is cycled, but the engine not started.

1997 Dodge ram diesel, engine does not turn over when key is turned, just a click. Just replaced both batteries. Last time the truck was run, there were no problems.


Smack the starter a few times with a hammer. It may start. It still may not. If you were to test for 12 volts at the starter and if ok, jump the two terminals down there and it still doesn't start , then you know you have a bad starter.
Or you could have a bad ground wire from the battery to motor ground. Simple test for this is to get some jumper cables and connect to ground on the battery and connect the other end strait to the starter housing. If it still does not start then you need a starter

Because you say you hear a click I would suspect the batterys or the starter only, that is if you verified the connections and bad grounds
