I can't speak directly to the 2006 model, but can tell you that anything between a 2007 and 2012 locates the fuel pump relay inside the TIPM box (your fuse box under the hood). Unfortunately, this relay is a HUGE source of trouble for a LOT of Jeep, Dodge and Chrysler owners! Dodge will NOT replace the relay as the TIPM is considered a non-repairable unit. I'd wager you are having starting problems that are probably getting worse. Cranks, but won't fire, right? Dodge will charge you between $1,200 and $1,500 to replace the entire TIPM box. Then a few years later, they'll want to do it again. The fix is to use 2 "add-a- line" fuse connectors to connectors to connect M7 (accessory power port fuse) to M25 (fuel pump relay fuse). How do I know? I just did it about ten minutes ago and it works! Doing this provides power to the pump and only when the ignition is turned on. Costs me about $15 bucks for the parts (AutoZone) and required about ten minutes of effort.

I have a 2007 RAM 1500 HEMI and it will crank but not start. I took off the air box and sprayed starter fluid into the throttle body and the truck started for a few seconds. So do I run the jumper between spot 7 and 25 in the fuse box? Because it says that 7 is "reverse lockout sol batt srt10" and 25 is "pwr mirror"? Please excuse my ignorance on this but we just had a baby and do not have money to take my truck to a shop or dealership. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
