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.

Did anyone ever help you with this on which fuses are the issues that need jumped?

I have the same issue. ....started today. and I looked at my fuse box and its just like inkedgorilla stated. it has nothing to do with the power mirrors and the reverse lockout solenoid. all the answers I could find had a completely different fuse box. I have the one that is slanted at a 40 degree angle not the one with tons of fuses in it. I looked at the website that everyone is talking about that shows the jumpers verticalvisions.com and it does not relate to the 2007 or 2008 dodge rams so I don't know what type of vehicle they are working on but it isn't this one. any help in this matter would be much appreciated and if anyone could tell me where the fuel pump relay is located that would help tremendously because it is not under the hood with the other fuses and it isn't in the driver side under the dash either
