Question about 1986 Dodge D150

1 Answer

Where is the ballaster resistor in a 1985 Dodge Ram 1/2 ton pickup truck? Truck starts but it will not keep running. I replaced part of the gas line and thought that would solve it but it still will not keep running.

1984 dodge ram charger will start and stay running if the ignition is held in the on position but as soon as it is released it dies. what would cause this?


Hi, the usual cause of this is a failed ballast resistor. You can find it by tracing the pink wire from the coil. I have pasted a picture of your ballast resistor below the wiring diagram. Try bypassing the resistor by putting a jumper wire across the 2 terminals. If this works to keep it running, replace the ballast resistor.

I have a 1985 Dodge Ram Charger. I am trying to replace the ballaster resistor and can not locate it. The book show it on the firewall or fender wheel however it is not located any of those places....


Should be on the firewall,yes. Perhaps follow the wire from the coil back to the ballast.
I assume the truck fires then dies as soon as you let off the starter? That's how a bad ballast would act.

Does that have the ceramic ballast on firewall as well? If so, use a jumper wire from terminal to terminal to see if that helps. (ceramic block about 1-1/2" x 3") usually was located on passenger area firewall behind engine.
