I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 ran to the store and came out to start it and it won't turn over! Checked the battery and starter which is fine. Then replaced the relay and still nothing. Any suggestions?

Yeah I tried that too. My ignition on the column?


Sometimes the doors will open but the battery is so weak in the Key module, it won't turn the security system off. Replace the battery in the key most used or try another key with less use on the battery in it. It worked for me. Now, I have a question-I've replaced IAC, TPS, Fuel Pump and Filter, fixed leak in fuel vacuum system, new coils (2), wiring, plugs, etc but the car may run perfectly for 300+miles but shut it off and it coughs back through the carb and loses power during acceleration. I'm beginning to think that the security system is not releasing good enough. Is there a Secuity Relay?
