Asked by Apr 26, 2014 at 09:48 PM about the 1994 Dodge Ram 2500 LT Standard Cab LB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Every now and then it will click when I turn the ignition, but wont turn over. When I have
full power I turn the ignition and all it does is suck all the power down infill there isn't
even a dim light left in the interior cab light. This happened one other time and I let it sit
for a day and it fired right up. I don't know what my problem is at all.

Sounds like a loose/dirty battery connection. Also check the negative battery connections on the frame and motor

dead spot in your starter will cause that problem here and there. best way to rebuild the starter or go buy a new one. then you wont have issues. happened to me as well and i replaced alot of stuff, found out it was the starter.
