...well I'd take a look at your spark...track it back from the coil...with a test light...the ignition or starter relay responsible for turning the ignition coils and finally the ignition switch itself...may be defective~...I would make sure that the relay has a proper 12.5 on it's power buss and take preventative measures such as cleaning the main ground connection at the chassis if voltage is reduced....and does not want to engage the relay~_______ https://www.google.com/#q=1997+dodge+ram+starter+relay+location&tb m=shop

the cold weather....combined with a salty and or dodgy main ground connection and the age of your battery failed to provide enough Voltage to engage the systems...that's what it's gotta be....get ye-self a new battery and we're good to go....and wire brush the main ground connection...dats all~
