Sometimes my 1998 Ram 2500 will not start unless I wriggle the steering wheel while turning key to "start" position. Is this an ignition interlock problem? What's the fix?


It sounds like a bad electrical connection on the ignition switch (black cap) for the starter circuit (worn or burnt contacts) New electrical switch required, it is separate from the steering lock, it is clipped or screwed onto back of lock and just plugs into the wiring. Hope that helps.

Stoped runing andwill not start


If it stopped in a second, the cause is electrical problem. If it stopped more gradually, over several seconds, it is usually fuel related. If you put the key in the ignition and turn it to run, not start, are there lights on the dashboard panel? If you turn the key to the start position, does the engine rotate? Sometimes I have to turn the key to start position several times before it works and the engine rotates.

Fuse and relay for the fuel pump


The fuel-pump relay unit is responsible for turning the fuel pump on when it detects the engine is running. When the ignition signal stops, the fuel-pump relay switches the pump off. Problems with the ignition and starting the vehicle often can be traced to the condition of the fuel-pump relay.

Description

  • The fuel-pump relay is a small unit, typically enclosed in a plastic case. The unit contains several sprockets on one side that are clipped onto the ignition system. The fuel-pump relay is engaged only during the start cycle. If it is faulty, it can take longer to start your vehicle.
  • Location
  • Most fuel-pump relay units are located under the dashboard near the steering column. In some cases, the unit is located in the area where the steering column is mounted or near the engine's firewall. The end of the fuel pump relay is typically located near the center of the floorboard, under the carpet in the front section of the passenger's or driver's side footwell.
  • Considerations
  • In addition to difficulty in starting the vehicle, symptoms of a poorly functioning fuel-pump relay include the following: the car dies then starts a few minutes later; the fuel pump makes a strange noise (humming or clicking loudly) for longer than five to 10 seconds after starting; or the engine won't start after you have engaged the fuel-pump switch.
  • Troubleshooting
  • When your car does not start properly, you can conduct a fuel-injection relay test. Two relays are located inside the fuel-injection system; one of them is responsible for turning the ignition on without turning over the engine, and the other is responsible for turning on when the engine turns.



    You can check to see if the first relay is working by touching it while turning the ignition on and off. You should feel a "click" every time you switch the ignition. If the fuel-pump relay is not working, you can "jump" the unit with a small lead jumper cable. You will need to access the fuse panel and insert the cable into the relay unit; the unit will run as long as the wire is inside the relay and can help start your car.

    Ignition switch will not activate starter motor consistently. Sometimes no, sometimes with a second click of key. Cleaned ignition switch contacts and wire harness connector contacts. Could a relay be the...


    Bad ignition switch and starter symptoms are similar. The engine will turn sometimes and will not turn some other times. If it is the switch you will not even here a clicking sound. If the starter is bad you might hear a clicking. If the distributor is bad than the engine will turn every time but it will not start running or will start but not run properly (misfire).
