Customer Question

Last week I was in my 07 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7ltr driving and it just shuts off so I get it started and now it's showing check engine light and throwing seven dtc codes and feels like the the truck is in a limp mode rough idle and literally no throttle push it to the floor engine does nothing so I checked all the codes and along with the throttle pos sensor I changed the PCM and the crankshaft and camshaft sensors and it went from idling rough and not having any throttle to nothing I'll try my best to explain. Normal vehicle = turn key on , dash lights up and u can hear the fuel pump kick on and the ignition click under the hood and then turn the key and the truck rolls over and fires My truck= turn key on dash lights up no fuel pump no ignition click under the hood and if u roll the key forward to fire nothing no click just nothing. I'm loosing my mind with this this my guess is to next change the ignition switch but honestly man I'm so running out of patience with this thing any help is greatly appreciated

Have you checked power down at the starter?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I did I have power there which is why my first gues is that the ignition switch isn't letting it past but I'm just beyond confused and frustrated oh and my trucks sitting in a parking lot at the local mall so it's a little hard to work on lol
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 9 months ago.

Can you talk on the phone now?

Expert:  AMEDEE replied 9 months ago.

If not, don't worry about it. I can help walk you through this diagnosis tonight when I get home from work.

Expert:  AMEDEE replied 9 months ago.

But I will give you some possible causes so you can start checking them now. If you do in fact have power down at the starter with the key in the crank position then ignition switch should be good. I would suspect a bad starter if this was the case.

Expert:  AMEDEE replied 9 months ago.

But if there is no power at the starter I'm trying to start the vehicle then I would suspect a bad ignition switch wireless ignition node, Bad transmission range sensor or wiring issue. Sometimes the integrated power distribution module under the hood goes bad causing this condition is well I've even come across other bad modules shorting out preventing the starting circuit from working. You can try to disconnect the battery cables from the battery and then reconnect them back up and see if the engine starts and runs. Sometimes these modules lock up and need to be reset
