check your ignition relay switch as well unhook your battery for 30 minutes and then hook it back up.

I have the same problem only I can hear a click when turning the key. It's not from the starter or battery area. I've cleaned and made sure all connection are good but no luck. I checked the starter relay fuse and it's fine. Heck I've checked every fuse and connection from hear to Texas on it. Could it be that the truck thinks it's in gear and won't start? App sensor maybe? Any help is appreciated.

Just got done with my truck (2002 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7L). It clicked a couple of times and didn't start, tried it again then started. Go to start it again and nothing. All the dash lights came on when I tried to start it but "no crank" Replaced the starter, battery, ignition switch, and cleaned all the cables to the battery and nothing. My girlfriend of all people told me to check all the grounds. Cleaned the one by the battery, the one by the fuse box, the one attached to the frame, and the one on the block itself ( very oily due to the fact it's directly under the oil filter). After I cleaned all the grounds it cranked right up. It might have been the ground the whole time, good place to start before buying all the parts.
