Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Truck
No it doesn't mean that you have a problem.When you cross the lugs with a screw driver no matter whether you have the key on or not it will still engage the starter.The reason being that you have the hot wire from the battery going to one terminal and your ignition switch on one terminal.What your basically doing is bypassing the switch and directly energizing the starter.A good way to test a starter is to remove it from your truck hook up your battery cables to your battery.Be very careful when you do this.Hook the ground to the starter casing and just touch the hot cable to the battery lug on the starter.This should engage your starter.You might want to take a look at the fuel delivery system for proper operation.
