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?

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~
