Question about 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck
There is a known deficiency with the ground circuit on these starter circuits and it matchers your symptoms exactly. Chrysler had a bulletin to add a ground strap and modify the existing circuit. You would have to talk to a dealer to get the specifics of that bulletin. (Is it still in warranty?) Those symptoms also relate to a short in the solenoid/starter however and you could try replacing the starter and that most likely will work.
I must ask the obvious question though, have you check your starter cables for breakage/corrosion/connection/other wires touching? I would do that before doing anything else with this. If you don't find anything on the connections, trace the wires back and verify no frays or damage. Its a quick check that could save you some money if you find a problem.
