Question about 1988 Dodge Ramcharger
The older chrysler products have a ballast resister on the firewall that is used for dropping the voltage to the ignition coil. During a start procedure, while the key is turned all the way in start position 12 volts bypass the resistor forcing a high output of coil voltage. When you release the key to the run position 12 volts goes ito the resistor & a lower voltage of around 6-7 volts comes out, & goes to the coil.
What happens, is the resistor breaks inside and no voltage is coming out the resistor. Thus only a start condition exist with no run.
