I too am having starting problems with my ram 1500.
MINE IS A 2006 W/ A 3.7 SIX. ITS NOT USED A LOT. IT HAS 66 THOUSAND MILES.
I PUT A NEW BATTERY IN IT A YR AGO. AND A NEW STARTER SOLENOID
TODAY. IT WONT CRANK OR EVEN MAKE A NOISE. IF YOU JUMP IT IT MAY
START AFTER A COUPLE OF MIN. I WOULD THEN DRIVE IT AROUND AND LET IT
SET AN IDOL W/NO PROBLEMS.IF I TURN IT OFF IT WILL START RIGHT BACK UP.
IF IT SITS A FEW DAYS IT WONT START ,CLICK, ANYTHING. ANY IDEAS?
THANKS FOR ANY HELP!! (I'M NOT REALLY YELLING) LOL
Try putting your battery on a trickle charger till its fully charged. Sounds like with all the sitting it does that the battery might be low on charge. If that helps you can buy a trickle charger to install on your truck that when plugged in while truck not in use for long periods of time it will keep your battery fully charged without over charging it.
Get your battery fully charged and then do a battery draw test, put a test light between a battery post and the cable connector, if the light turns on then you have a draw and that will kill a battery in a day or two, then the fun begins trying to find it, start by eliminating circuits one at a time until the light goes out, I usually disconnect the alternator first, if the light goes out then you have a bad alternator, if light is still on then try removing the fuses one at a time until light goes out, just remember what fuses went where.
