Question about 1999 Dodge Ram

1 Answer

We have a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 318. It ran fine the night before, parked it went out next morning would not start. The engine turns over but doesnt start. We replaced the plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, rotor button and coil however we are still having the same problem. The fuel pump kicks on and there is fuel pressure. Can you give us an idea of what could be wrong?

Check the plugs to the computer on the passenger side of the firewall. there are three of them, unplug them, wait ten or eleven minutes and plug them back in. if that does not work you might have a computer problem or a bad ground wire at the battery
By the way my 99 has the original plugs, wires, rotor, dist cap, and coil, from the factory. I have driven it every day for 11 yrs. over 12,000 foot mountain passes, four wheeling trips every weekend, and dozens of trips across the country. I have over 260,000 miles on it. I think you get the point...
By the way diesel boys this is a gas engine simply well maintained!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ignition feed fuse 16 blows when i turn on the key

You have a 'short circuit' in the system or a bad ground somewhere. Go online and search on the Dodge/Plymouth/Chrysler forums for this issue. I've read about myself but don't recall the common cause.

1999 dodge ram truck 1500 4x4 worked fine park it and next morning tried to start truck but all bell and lights come on but 30 amp ignition run fuse keeps blowing and truck wont start ran fine when...

This 30 amp fuse, If it blows when cranking, it is usually the starter dragging, if it blows by just turning the key on it is usually the fuel pump drawing too many amps.
I hope this helps.

1997 mpv mini van runs great. While traveling i drove from SC to Atl GA....parked and went into motel for evening...the next morning i had very difficult time getting it re started....Like it was not...

I think you should check your battery and alternator.If they both check good you may have a battery draw,something draining the battery over night.Check your doors make sure they are closing like they should.

My 1997 Dodge Avenger's engine won't start

Try cam and/or crank sensor. If crank to cam timing isn't detected properly it'll crank all day but won't start. I had similar problem on my 2.5L V6 Avenger....drove home fine, no engine light, next morning it cranked, but wouldn't start. The crank sensor was faulty.
