2002 Dodge Ram 1500 won't start

Asked by Oct 24, 2012 at 01:59 PM about the 2002 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Went to the store and when I came out and atempted to start my truck nothing. Not a sound, all the gauges and lignts work and light up when I try to start it. I checked my cable connections and my battery is fully charged. Could it be the starter solenoid?

just the starter, if it was the solenoid the lights wouldnt come on

The lights will come on if the solenoid is bad. These days, replace the whole starter. Based on what you post, either the starter or corrosion on the battery terminals. (Corrosion will let lights work but not enough juice to start) Do you hear a "click" at least? One click, starter, multi click, battery.
