Question about 1998 Dodge Ram
I thought that I burned up ignition switch because truck would keep running when I shut it off and all my guages were lit up.It starts and runs good. but it will not shut down the truck.So ive had to pull off coil wire to shut down, pius disconnect battery. I am dissabled and could use honest help ln figuring this out. thanks for help..
SOURCE: WON'T START
Check if you can if it doesn't have some kind of alarm system that locks out when battery disconnected.(owners manual, or where you bought the vehicle), then I'd check all the fuses, starting with any under the hood to see if maybe one of those blew when hooking up new battery.

Check your Air Filter to see if it is wet, rain may be getting in the air intake.

Sounds like the alternator is bad (not charging). If your battery is good/charged it should run until the battery is drained. If the battery is bad/not charged the car will die as soon as the cables are taken off as there is not enough juice to run the ignition system. If the alternator is good (but battery bad) the car would still run as the alternator makes power to run the car but becasue the battery is dead/drained there is no power to start the car (hense needing the jump). Have the alternator/charging system tested
