Ur dodge might have a dead battery but more likely its because of a faulty ignition system.

If another key works fine that is what it is. There is an antenna at the base of the ignition cylinder that picks up a signal from a transponder that is in the key. If the other key works fine I would get another key made for the car.

06 f 150 5.4 put key in and electrical goes nuts without even turning key inside lites go on and off radio does same some times door chimes sometimes it don't meter says 12.6 volts at battery can hear...


You have a bad battery or a bad connection to the battery.
Put your meter on the battery (not the connections to the truck but the battery posts themselves) and measure the voltage when you try to start the truck.. It if stays at 12v then you likely have some kind of connection issue. If it goes low then you have a bad battery.

Car won't start. Battery power seems fine. Turn the key, no cranking, lights and radio die with key in "start" position.


Hello davidoz,

Your description sounds like a bad battery. Do you have a volt meter to watch the voltage as you turn the key to start? The voltage on a good battery( meaning fully charged) should stay about 11 volts while cranking, if it drops below that suspect a bad battery.

Another possibility is that the battery is good but the alternator is not charging.

Will it start with a jump? If is does check with a volt meter the out put of the alternator it should be 13.8 volts or slightly higher.

Regards,
netvan
