Check battery for proper voltage, if your battery has less than 9.6v, your engine will not crank, but all the dash lights and radio will work. Use a voltmeter on DC VOLTS and check the battery voltage, if not between 12.5v and 12.8v, have someone jump start your truck. After it starts, check battery voltage, it should be 13.5v to 14.5v. If not, have the battery charged and load tested. If battery checks out ok, you may have an alternator problem, Good luck, Gary

If your valve body is stuck open or closed, would that cause your car to not turn over???


If no movement of the engine happens at all, then please check the following:

1) Battery voltage. You should have 12.5 volts and over. Try turning on the headlights and cranking. If they dim considerably, then your battery is likely flat and may need charging/replacing.

2) Battery voltage is fine, but nothing happens: Is there a clicking when you turn the key? If so, then check the starter motor. It's likely failed.

3) Battery voltage is fine, but there is no clicking when I turn the key. Check voltage to the starter motor solenoid on the top of the motor. If it is receiving power when you turn the key to crank, yet not moving/engaging, then replace it.

4) Battery is fine, but no power to starter motor and/or solenoid. Check all battery connections, leads and connections to the motor and engine body.

Car won't start, seems to have power, all lights working. when I turn the key nothing happens. this only happens sometimes


Could be a bad alternator.. It may not be holding charge. Or your starter could have failed.

Though I've had the same problem and it was a dead battery in my vehicle. Had enough power, but to keep the car on..

Lights, radio and powerdoor locks work, turn key to start car nothing happens


If you had said the radio did not work, I would say it was the key switch or a large fuse or fuseable link.
But the radio is powered thru the key switch.
The problem could still be the key switch or a major fuse, I would check all of the fuses then power at the key switch.
Also check the ground connections.

Turn key wouldnt start


Possible causes, flat battery, faulty alternator, coil or starter motor,though sounds more like power problem, do you have power to lights, radio etc when key is turned on even though nothing happens.

Can not turn key in


do you have power locks? mechanically cant turn the key? or when you turn the key nothing happens? Could be a simple as a fuse. Check the one labeled "pwr acc" for power accessories.

1988 Doge Ram will not turn over.


check your starter relay in the power distribution center. if you are not getting any crank. with a test light or dvom you can check the small signal wire on your starter solenoid when the key is in the crank position there should be power on this wire. it sounds like you are not getting signal to the starter from the ignition switch
