get a NEW battery as these new tin/antimony alloy ones only last for five years before they stop accepting a charge...take a coarse wirebrush and clean the end of the 1/0 cable as it attaches to ground...clean the big lug...clean the chassis or fender or wherever the thing bolts to for an assured 300 cold-cranking amps delivery~ this will enable the chassis ground which may be marginal~

okay, we must check voltage to the coil packs~...if not the ignition switch or relay~

ummm, when you turn the key to the "on" position, do you hear the fuel pump circulating fuel through the fuel rail?

Not getting fuel. Fuel pump is fairly new.

okay....the fuel pressure regulator ain't lettin' fuel through~ when vacuum is applied the regulator "regulates" allowing fuel through...your ain't doin' this....look at the vacuum tube to it....both ends...if you need to replace the vacuum hose use trouble-free silicone lines~

the emergency shutoff on the dodge is near the tank...but you would have NOTHING no action...but the motor turns (gasoline fuel pump) so the shutoff is ready to blow right now and NOT tripped....trippin'~?

always recommend silicone vacuum lines...all the police cars use them and so do BMW's~

....well follow the fuel line from the tank...there probably mounted in an aluminum block near or on the intake manifold will have a fuel connection and a vacuum connection~ will look for a cartoon here~

My husband had this problem this weekend we replaced 5 parts but all it was was too much carbon on ac intake valve
