    brake and anti lock brake lights come on n then go off after about ten seconds.. also 4x4 engadged light comes on..but noticed when trying to strt it that the 4x4 engadged light goes on n off.. never noticed it doing that before...

  • cebulskig Oct 08, 2009

    horn and dash lights work as well as headlight... brake light n anti lock brake lights come on when key is in the run position, but go off after about ten seconds...

  • cebulskig Oct 08, 2009

    i checked fuses under the dash... they all seem good. r there others somewhere i should check? n yes i took the cap off the distributor, and the rotor is turning, n i replaced the pickup coil... still no luck.

  • cebulskig Oct 08, 2009

    and i didnt notice any arching when replaceing the battery, the old battery that it had in it was a marine battery, n seemed to no longer hold enough charge to even get the 91 dodge ram to kick over

  • cebulskig Oct 08, 2009

    no the battery came fully charged.. turns over like a champ, just wont fire... had a few people say i should look at replacing the computer, as that is the only thing that would resolve a sudden fault in fuel pressure being non exsistant as well as no spark... is this true, is it worth looking into, i was hoping that it would be something really easy, n i already replaced a 35 dollar pickup coil for apparently no reason...

  • cebulskig Oct 08, 2009

    hoping someone could maybe lead me to some alternative ideas, like other fuses somewhere, maybe a rely that might cause both fuel and spark to suddenly dissappear??? this truck ran fine 3-4 weeks ago and then just sat.. replaced the battery because im selling it, n now that i finally sold it, it wont fire... no gas, no fuel... something like the computer? other options that make sense?

I would start by checking all the fuses. Was the battery removed because it is old and failed? Any battery arching when the battery was removed or replaced?
I'm assuming the engine does crank over.
When the key is turned to the "run" position, do the instrument lights come on such as the battery light, service engine soon light, oil pressure and so on?
Let me know.

Start right at the battery. Re check the connections at the battery posts. Then check the negative wire going to the engine block for the chassis ground. Does the starter motor turn over? Do the headlights work? Horn?

    Have you checked all the fuses? There is an ignition fuse in the fuse block. How about the cap and rotor? Have you taken the cap of the distributor and checked in there?

Hello there:
If you have a friend that has the handheld diagnostic unit you can hook it up to the onboard computer and have it analysed, or somehow get the truck to a autozone for a free test they will be able to give you any fault codes that will help explain what is going on. also if you can see if you can hear the fuel pump at all it should make some sound if it is working it may just need to be primed or you might have a wire that is loose somewherre or you have a master fuse that has failed probably under the hood in the fuse block refer to the manual for the location of this. ok?
best regards michael

1986 dodge d150, 318 cu engine Truck starts sometimes, could idle for an hour or longer then just quits, not like a fuel problem quits no sputtering just dies like turning the ignition off. Coil is good...


Check your ballast resistor, they are a major failure item. The ballast resistor lowers the voltage to the coil and uses resistance to do so. Test would be to put battery voltage to positive side of the coil, during the failure condition, but my bet is resistor.

Ya you will need to install the 02 sensor ,, you can buy the adaptor threw a place like summit racing and it will need to be welded on to the header.
