Asked by Nov 30, 2015 at 09:19 PM about the 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr Laramie SLT 4WD Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Was starting just fine until I filled it up with fuel, now I have to put foot on
accelerator to start it, and it wants to die when i remove my foot, i finally got it
to idle, left it running for about 1/2 hour, shut it off and it still requires my foot
to be on the accelerator to start, and still dies after taking foot off of gas pedal!
Thanks for all the help!!

1 Answer

also, when i turn it off I hear some type of electronic relay or something come on and run when the key is out of the ignition, down by the fuse panel.
