where is the impact switch located? I actually did have an accident and was having the truck painted and as he was putting it back together it stopped starting. It cranked up the whole time it was being worked on until then...

Dodge doesn't use inertia switches. The fuel pump is controlled via a relay by the computer. Have him check the trucks ground wires.

I have a 1995 v8 1500 dodge, Im thinking I have a grounding issue also, is my truck old enough to not have that kill switch?


I had the exact same problem with my 2011 Ram. When I took it to repair shop after accident it was running fine during repair process now it will not start. Did you find out what your problem was. Thank you.
