How could my truck lose all power when the ignition is turned?

Asked by Dec 04, 2014 at 03:33 AM about the 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr ST Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 01 Ram 1500 3.9 V6. My truck not only wont start but as soon as you turn the ignition it will click once then all electrical shuts off. After that happens if I tap the battery cable power is restored. The battery is good had it checked, the battery cables are tight and secure, My wife took my truck to the store then came home. I went to start it and then this.
