Sounds like you have a bad fuel pump relay and a bad ignition coil relay, and or a couple of blown fuses. I would check the fuses first.

    I agree with pepperorig however if you don't find any bad parts test your camshaft position sensor.

1997 Dodge Dakota Fuel pump not running and there is no fire to the coil


Pull out the auto shutdown relay. Try substituting another relay thst is not needed to run the engine, such as the horn relay. If that works, replace the relay. If not, probe the relay socket with a volt/ohmmeter. With the meter set to vdc, connect the black lead to body ground and probe the socket. Thete shou.d be one hot terminal with the key off and two hot terminals with the key on or turned to start.
If those are good, leave your red probe in the terminal that is hot with the key on, keep yhe key on, and probe the other two terminals with your black lead. One of those terminals should read battery voltage, as it is the ground signal from the pcm. The other terminal should also show some voltzge, as it goes to the coil and other loads. After running these tests, let me know the rexults and I will try to diagnose.

1997 dodge ram 5.9 fuel pump troubleshooting truck ran fine was low on fuel stopped it went to restart n wouldnt fire poured gas in throttlebody n truck fired off n then died


If the pump has run down on fuel and the fuel pump ran DRY , then it is possible that there is air in the system and the flow can be restrictive. The fuel lines have to be opened out to allow the flow till the air moves out of the system.
The fault will clear one the pump clears this fault .Now you can connecct back and start .

1997 dodge ram won't start. My fuel pump does not run and coil won't spark. Iv'e checked fuses and relays and they look fine. Could a bad fuel pump cause the asd to kill power to the coil?


First check any ignition/fuel related fuses. Check to make sure you have 12 volts coming into the pump and coil. If nothing to the fuel pump replace the fuel pump relay - if you do have power to the fuel pump then replace the pump. If nothing is coming to the coil it is either an ignition relay or a wiring issue. If you have 12 volts to the coil but no spark then replace the coil.
Also the fuel pump/relay would not kill the coil.
