my truck won't start.

Asked by Jan 19, 2016 at 08:38 AM about the 1997 Dodge Ram 3500 ST Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1997 dodge ram, I have been trying to
start it up but it wont go. I have a new starter and
batteries are semi new, am thinking it's because
it's cold? But I've been trying for about 30mins and
nothing.
