I have a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 4.7 Sport. I recently put in a new/used motor because my old one had a bad crankshaft. So after getting new motor in I started the truck and it ran great. I only ran it for about 5 seconds because I noticed I had a broken transmission line. I went back the next day and fixed the line. I went to start the truck back up and nothing happened. No click no nothing, everything lights up on dash. My engine light comes on and blinks about tens times than stays steady. My gear selections are all lit up. Does anyone know the do it yourself solution?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 4.7 Sport.  I recently put in a new/used motor because my old one had a bad crankshaft.  So after many hours of getting new motor in, I started the truck and it ran great. I only ran it for about 5 seconds because I noticed I had a broken transmission line so I shut off the truck.  I went back the next day and fixed the line. I went to start the truck back up and nothing happened. No click, no nothing, everything lights up on dash. My battery seems fine. My engine light comes on and blinks about tens times than stays steady.  My gear selections are all lit up.  Does anyone know the do it yourself solution?

Problem solved: Turns out I was a bad ground. I replaced ground from motor to frame. Works great. No problems
