Question about 1992 Dodge Power Ram 50

1 Answer

I have a 1992 Dodge Ram 50. When I turn the key the lights on the dash come on, but the starter does nothing. I have had the Battery tested, the starter tested, I have replaced the ECM, and Starter relay, and checked the ignition switch, and clutch saftey switch and all fuses. You can turn the key on and put it in second gear, roll about ten feet pop the clutch and it starts and runs fine. Thank You Nathan

Diagnose the problem by probing the starter relay socket with a volt/ohmmeter. If you have 4wd, there is a second relay. See diagram.

There's only 2 more things that I can think of, check the fuse for the ignition, then the computor itself, you did everything else.It might be the problem and may not.

SOURCE: starter won't engage

It's most likely the neutral safety switch. Try putting the shifter in Neutral and slipping it just a little toward Park and see if it'll crank. If it does the neutral safety switch is the problem but worn linkage is the cause.
You've already check or replace everything else so it has to be this or the ignition switch.

1994 Dodge Ram Van B250 Check Engine light doesn't come on, van won't crank, won't start....nothing when key is turned on It is not battery......buzzer and such does come on when key is turned on


I know you said it isn't the battery, forgive me, be sure the battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Use a test lite and follow battery voltage. Battery ground is important also.
The battery voltage may lead to junction block--fusible links--fuse box?
At the fuse-box, pick any component that has a fuse, check fuse circuit for voltage, use a test lite. Some fuses are hot all the time, some go hot with key on, test both ways.
If the starter motor won't crank, check voltage and ground for the starter motor. Usually two voltage circuits at the starter motor, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the crank position and is probably wired through the clutch or neutral switch then through the starter relay, where applicable, to the starter motor. The starter motor usually grounds through the engine block, so, battery negative connection is important.
Any testing at starter motor, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set. Safety is your responsibility. You don't want the vehicle to move during testing.

Turns over but won't start


I would start checking fuses for power. It could be a battery cable issue or something in the fuse box. The dash lights would not be powered thru the key switch, but the other stuff would be. Provided the key switch is getting power for accessories.

How to read the code on an 87 dodge ram 50


On full size Dodge trucks, you cycle the key switch to make the light flash.
On Dodge imports such as the D-50 truck, you have to use a test meter and connect it to a plug under the radio.
You can find the procedures and trouble codes in a repair book or by researching it online.

1998 dodge ram turn on key and nothing. battery good.


it could be the ani theft system or the starter, go for the starter check the small wire while someone turns the key for you, see if there is power there using a 12 volt test light if so then suspect the starter try hitting it with a hammer if it starts then for sure it is the starter.

Follow the positive battery cable from the battery to a junction,or to the starter,see if there is some fusible links connected there that might be burned out,the dash lights ,is most likely the head light switch,you can find the dash light fuse,and you will find there is no voltage to it,then you can run a wire,from a fuse with power on it,only with key on,this will make them work every time the key is turned on.

Greetings!

Let's keep things simple to start with... Check the battery that it has sufficient charge. (I did say to keep it simple). Ensure the gear selector is in Park or Neutral if equipped with an automatic trans, or depress the clutch pedal if equipped with a manual trans.

Lastly, in keeping things simple... check all the fuses and fuse links (special fusible wire) that power is available to your vehicle's electrical system.

With a test light, check the starter relay with the key in start position is energising the starter relay... bypass the starter relay if no power is present. if the starter operates, you now know the problem is located within the start control circuit (from the key switch through the starter relay to ground via a neutral safety switch (auto) or clutch switch (Manual).

finding the fault should be quick with a circuit diagram.

Cheers, Jay

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
