1999 Dodge Ram Van 1500 won't start.

Asked by Pu55muncher May 20, 2023 at 03:19 PM about the 1999 Dodge RAM 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

99 dodge ram van 1500 was running fine and did not have any bad starts
prior then yesterday morning it did not start. The lights on the dash and
powered windows work so the battery still has good power. When I turn the
key nothing happens, it doesn't even try to crank. I went underneath and
tried to do the screw driver trick with the starter. Nothing happened and I
didn't even hear the starter click so I don't think it's getting power. The line
going from the battery to the starter looks fine and I swapped out the starter
relay with a couple other relays in the van and still nothing. Anyone know
what else I should check before I get it towed?

Do you have a multi meter ? If no then have it towed , If yes then , - well there ain't no yes , things need to be tested to see what the problem is otherwise your just spinning your wheels

Was having same issue with my 2002 ram 1500 I personally had to mash the gas in order to get it to work. With it being fuel injected idk why or how it worked but it did
