Sounds like a dead starter... or components related to such (ignition coil etc)

Check your connections at the battery, starter, & alternator first. They should be clean, dry, & tight. Inspect the wiring at these locations too. Look for broken wires or wires with worn off insulation. HTH. -Jim


starter sounds stuck,change get another one.


pulled the relay and jumped, starter works fine. also noted there is no remote for the door locks. when using the key in the door the other door locks do not operate electrically. they do operate with the master switch. also key on engine off no indicators or lights on the instrument cluster. needles do not illuminate or move when turned on.

Neutral safety switch is a possibility.

depending how low your battery was, just jumping it is not enough. you need to get it checked to see if you have a dead cell or if you just need to put it on a trickle charger. when you have the radio on and you crank the key, does the radio shut down? that would indicate a low battery. HTH

I have a 2002 dodge ram 1500 on the diver side back door has that rubber boot that has all the wires going through it they all break from opening and closing all the time check the wires make sure they are not ripped mine were all torn apart
