Question about 1999 Dodge Ram
Won't start or even try to start.I took the starter in & it tested just fine so now I'm not sure what the problem is.
Since you know the starter is good, now have the alternator and battery tested. If these are both good (if either or both are bad, obviously replace) then try replacing the starter relay; this will prevent a car from even turning over.
Also, check all starter fuses, iginition fuses and relays.
Q: Does the engine turn over?
Q: Does the engine start, then die, or just turn over?
Q: If it turns over, does it sound weak, or does it sound strong, like it's trying to start?
Q: Have you tired jump starting the truck? If not try this: if it starts and stays running, pull both battery terminals off. If the truck dies, replace the alternator. If it stays running, you may need to replace the battery. Look at the battery and see if there is a date sticker on it to indicate when the battery was purchased (or manufactured). (If diesel, have both batteries tested). If diesel, if jumpstarting from one battery doesn't work try the other one. Also, if diesel, make sure there is at least 1/4 tank of fuel as some diesels won't start if very low on fuel (pump does not reach very bottom of tank and will not syphin fuel in).
If gas/diesel, and it turns over, turn the key to the on position and have someone lean down at the back side of the truck (driverside) and listen for the fuel pump to engage. If no noise is heard, consider replacing the fuel pump. Inquire with an auto parts dealers as to whether or not this truck is equipped with a secondary fuel pump (usually located mid-way on the chassi).
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Change your transmission filter. You're probably not getting enough pressure to get the boost valve to kick the reverse solenoid. I would have the whole transmission flushed and filled if it's starting to act weird. Good luck.

Something else to check if not starter maybe starter relay is toast and if so it is $25 or less I am Canadian here its $25 US should be much cheaper.

This code means that system to lean, bank 1.
some of the possible causes to make this code set are
1. intake or exhaust leak,
2. problem with the air system.
3. MAF (Mass Air Flow sensor)VAF sensor (Volume air flow sensor)
4. fuel pressure/pump
6. HO2S (Oxygen sensor)

are you sure you got the wires back on tight? Also it sounds like the bendex is not kicking out like it is supose to.....Did you change the starter cylenoied?
even some new starters are bad, it doesent happen much but it does happen. You might even take the starter back out and run Jumper cables to the starter. See if the bendex will kick out and stay out untial you diconect the starter......Sorry for your run of bad luck and I hope this is of some help.
