Asked by Mopar6970 May 12, 2012 at 03:07 PM about the 2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 / Hemi, it will not start, it will turn over and keep turning over, but will not fire.  I checked the fuel pump fuse, but I cannot hear the fuel pump run, that being said, my neighbor has the same truck and we cannot hear his fuel pump either.  Not sure what to look for, any ideas?

While cranking it over have someone spray a small amount of starting fluid into intake. If it runs momentarily its fuel delivery issue. If not most likely ignition issue. If you determine fuel delivery issue look to fuel pump fuse, fuel pump relay or ECM.

check/hit your fuel pressure reset button. had the same problem, had it taken to the shop, that's all the mechanic did, after he charged 100 for the diagnostic.
