Dodge Ram 1500

My truck would not start after I stopped at the gas station. A red flashing light came on in the dash. I tried to jump start it but the engine would not turn over.

    04 Ram 1500 Hemi (60,000 mi) drove fine all day and always fires right up. After 45 minutes in the driveway it won't start. Interior lights are flashing, red light flashing on the dash, dash lights flashing, cd player laboring, power windows laboring. All of this settles after a short while. Turning key results in power drain similar to dead battery. Battery tests o.k. at 12.7. Jump start not effective with cables or power pack. Something "clicks" about every second when trying to jumpstart (solenoid?). Frozen starter?-wouldn't drain battery...

Probably over heat too much and the engine frozen.

2003 dodge 1500 wont start no power flashing red light in dash

That must be the security system. Check your owner's manual for a reset procedure. Most people will tell you your best bet is the dealership-only they have the electronic testing equipment and expertise to work on factory installed security, especially so if any reprogramming is required. I don't know if that's the case, the owner's manual may shed some light.

2000 dodge ram 1500 clicking and wont start batery is good, starter is good, lights are on dash as normal, still wont start, keeps on clicking

get a jump, take it to Auto Zone or other parts store, have them run a free diagnostic on the battery, and the alternator. My bet is that it's one of the two that needs replacement.

Dash and interior lights flash and truck will not start. Lights continue to flash even after the key is removed. I have to disconnect the battery to stop the lights from flashing. There are no sounds when...

your battery is bad. Happened to me a month ago. I checked the alternator, it was fine. I put a new battery in ,and has been trouble free. I had no warning, other than it was the factory battery and it was5 years old.
