I own a 1997 dodge ram 3500 turbo diesel. I was having intermittent problems starting it and tested the starter by shorting out the solenoid and determined that the starter was bad (I put a screwdriver between the two lugs and when a second person turned the key nothing happened). So I replaced the starter (with a starter from auto zone). The truck started fine for couple days and now will not start again. It turns over strong (two new batteries) but will not start. Although, It did start


No it doesn't mean that you have a problem.When you cross the lugs with a screw driver no matter whether you have the key on or not it will still engage the starter.The reason being that you have the hot wire from the battery going to on ... 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Truck

1997 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel 4x4 keeps blowing a 40 amp fuse for the ign/acc when this happens I lose all my gauges and the wipers/turn signals/ radio/ both cig. acc. plugs and the starter. I also lose the speedomoter and the odometer. You can let it sit for awhile and replace the fuse and it will start but will soon blow the fuse. If you put a fuse in right away it immediately blows it.I know it must have a dead short somewhere but don't have any idea.


I would start at the starter, it could have a short but it's only apparent when the engine gets it hot. you can try to pull the fuses to other things and see if the problems stop. this will at least give you an idea of where to look. also check fusi ... 1997 Dodge Ram 2500 Club Cab

Can the PCM be at fault for a 2004 dodge durango not starting? I attempted to start my vehicle after it had been operating fine all day and it will not crank, the gauges and all dash lights flash, the horn relay is faint and buzzing as if it were triggering the antitheft mode. I replaced the starter and still the same (just clicking, not energizing the solenoid. The battery is fully charged but while attempting to crank the engine, the dome lights fade from very dim to not illuminating. All fuse

I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 with a V10 in it. I am having a problem getting it started. What happens is I turn the key to the on position and all the gauges and the radio turn on so I know I am getting power into the cab. I have replaced the positive battery cable and all the starter relay fuses and that hasn't solved any of the problems. I also had the starter checked and that seems to be in good condition. Any ideas?

2003 Lincoln Town Car. intermittent starting. Have replaced starter and solenoid, ignition switch, swapped out starter relay with another one. If key is turned on, jumping the solenoid will start the car, Then, after I've started it that way, it often will start with the key. When I try to start it with the key, all I get is the buzzing or clicking of the relay in the underhood fuse box. Again, swapped relay...nothing. Same with the relay in fuse box under the dash. also tried diffent keys, WD

94 Chrysler Town and Country won't start with key. Battery and cable connections are good. 12 volts directly to the starter solenoid starts the engine. All gages come on turning key to start position but only a click and no start. Replaced ignition switch and starter relay - no change. Traced 12V wire from starter solenoid to fuse box and the starter relay and wire is good. Applying 12 volts to the socket of the starter relay results in starting the engine. Is this a failure of the PCM?


Has it got an immobiliser / if so there is a fault there. If not an ignition switch itself. ... 1997 Chrysler Town & Country

I have a 95 chevy lumina 3.1 liter car. When I turn the key, the all the light work but nothing happens when turning the key to the start position. The battery, starter, and solenoid are all fine. I have found that there is no starter relay or starter fuses in this vehicle. I have also found that the wire to the solenoid isn't getting any power. When hooking the solenoid directly to the ignition wire, the car cranks but will not start.


There is a fuse from the ignition switch. There is also a fusible link. Below is a wiring diagram that you can look at and it has the wire colors as well. This I hope will help you narrow down your power loss to the solenoid. If you need anymore wiri ... 1995 Chevrolet Lumina

The battery is fine. we tried charging it. we checked the oil, fuses, and starter to make sure everything was connected. It won't start or even turn over. The lights and evrything turn on like normal but no engine response. when we bypassed the solenoid it turned over but did not start. there is about a quarter tank of gas in it still. the fuses are good and the starter wiring is all connected. We have had to replace the starter once before about a year ago but everything worked fine after that.


Two things it could be.... one is the starter relay located in the fuse panel near the battery. the other is that the starter is failing. have someone attempt to start it and hit the start with a hammer... not hard enough to break it.... if it turn ... 2003 Pontiac Grand Am

96 dodge ram 2500 diesel, no start, fuel solenoid won't ingage, no power to pull'in circuit of solenoid, you can turn key on and manually activate the solenoid and the hold in windings will then keep it in and engine will then start. Or you can jump power from the battery to the solenoid and it will pull in and it will start, I need to know where the solenoid gets power from. I think straight from the ignition, but thought it might have a relay, I don't have a wiring diagram available right now
