2006 Dodge Ram 1500...for the last couple of weeks when I try to start my truck I have to tap the gear shifter up first. It starts right up after that. Today it wouldn't start at all. Any ideas?

I have power (radio comes on and lights work).  I had the starter tested and it was fine.

Automatic or stickshift? going to suggest you look at the ground connection to the block (near the alternator)~ get a new battery if older than five~ these NO lead batteries aren't as hearty~
