    If you fixed the problem, forget my comment. However, if not, see service bulletin TSB07-008-07 and its attached .pdf. Mostlikely you problem is the WCM which initially recognized the Key FOB. I've had same problem with my truck, replaced key and WCM. My is currently in shop 2nd time for this. I have Chrysler Customer Service involved this time.

First thing is to check is the ignition fuse/relay under the hood for a blown fuse or bad relay. If everything is ok then set parking brake with truck in park/netural and have someone to turn the ignition over to start and at the same time use a test light to check for fire at the starter solenoid. If no fire then the ignition switch or netural switch on transmission is causing the problem. If you do have power to the starter solenoid then the problem would be either the solenoid or the starter drive locked up on the flywheel. Be sure to remove the negative wire from the battery if you need to remove the starter. Hope this will help you.

    Thanks a million will try that

    did you have the alarm removed when you bought it??? Sometimes the don't really hook the wire back up properly in the fuse box. Facing the front of the truch open the hood and it is on the right side. easy fix if that is the problem.

Read your owners manual or use the internet,
to find out what the dash symbol is

Any dash light that is on, you should have checked for codes

The alternator has nothing to do with starting the motor

Turns over slow-- is telling you something

Bad Battery
Bad Cables--voltage drop
Bad Starter
Motor Problem-mechanical

You didn't say how any of the testing was done, or the results

What about spark,injector pulse & fuel pressure

2000 dodge ram 1500 clicking and wont start batery is good, starter is good, lights are on dash as normal, still wont start, keeps on clicking

get a jump, take it to Auto Zone or other parts store, have them run a free diagnostic on the battery, and the alternator. My bet is that it's one of the two that needs replacement.

Door ajar clicking on off

when you turn the key do lights on the dash come on before trying to start? if it goes click after you turn it further than to on then it sounds like a dead flat battery. get a jump start and let run for 15 mins-half an hour then turn it off and try again. if it doesnt at least crank then its likely a battery that cannot be saved and needs replacing.

You need to have a good battery in it. There are to many computer controlled opponents. Put a new or known good battery in it and try it. If it doesn't start then check for fire at the plugs and fuel pressure at the fuel rail.
