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.

Park lights and dash lights won't stop flashing

There is a small black box under dash by steering column that has a little red button on it. Push that button and it will reset the alarm. Whenever the power is removed from the system it will trigger that alarm and flash your lights. Easy quick fix. Box is about 4" x4" and just to the left of the column. Good luck and have a great day.

Wont start

Check the condition of your battery. You may have a battery going bad. The 300, Sebring, Intrepid, and most of the intermediate sized Chrysler cars do wierd stuff like the dash lights going crazy. Try jump starting it.
