Check the fuse,s and fuel relay.

I checked all the fuses im getting spark but the gas gauge is not working and the fuel pump still nothing I don't have any idea what it could be

Check your nurser switch also most likely that's not it because you said you drove it where it sits but it's nice to just check everything

If I'm not mistaken a Dodge pegs the gas needle when the fuel pump is bad

For future reference, disconnect the negative (-) battery cable if you plan on not using your truck for an extended time period. That'll prevent the battery from dying during storage. Sounds like the fuel pump fuse. HTH. -Jim

Just let the battery charge fully. I have the same problem scared the crap out of me just charge it fully. Be patient don't go to extremes its an easy fix.

Still same problem no power to coil,fuel pump don't prime, and for some odd reason the mileage is blinking I've never seen it do that before I've checked all fuses and relays over and over.. And battery is fine
