Your vehicle is possessed, Dude. First, get a priest, holy water, olde time bible, a bunch of candles, and have yourself an exorcism. Then, get some beers to celebrate your victory. Or, some wine if you fail and have to put Old Bessie down. Or.....check the ground wire on the starter and the ignition switch.

My new 2014 1500 did the same thing yesterday. Acted like it was turning over but never started. I thought I had sat on the key or sent a start message through Uconnect or something. I couldn't find anything on the web but I did notice that my weatherteck mat had pinned the gas so I just figured that had something to do with it.

Just had it happen to me. Tried to jump it yesterday but couldn't start it so took batter into shop to charge it. Put it in today and put on negative cable truck cranked over and started on its own. No keys in the ignition. Took off cable and finally shut off. Never in my 60 years ever seen this.
