1998 Dodge Ram

Asked by Apr 09, 2016 at 03:22 PM about the 1998 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Truck won't start. Battery and alternator are good.
From what I can tell fuel pump is good. It was
having problems, where it wouldnt start, so I would
undo the battery, rebook it and it's be fine for a few
days. Also sometimes if I was stopped at a light or
something, truck would lose power or even shut
off...any help?

you need to replace your electrical part of your ignition switch.

Do you know where that would be on my truck?

it should be on the steering column or behind your ignition switch.

make sure you use a timing light to set the correct timing also change the coil and distributor cap. check the coil a week later if its bad change the whole didtributor
