2003 Dodge dakota: with 87,000 miles on it..electrical all worked

Resolved Question:

I have a 2003 Dodge dakota with 87,000 miles on it. I went to start it last nite and the electrical all worked but it would not turn over. I went to start it this morning and it did start. Is it possible that this is the start of the fuel pump going? There was also a lot of rain yesterday-could moisture just have built up somewhere to cause it to not start?

Yes moisture can cause the ignition system to temporarily not work. It shouldn't be happening though. There just must be a bad seal on something in the ignition system. I would wait and see if it happens again or more frequently. Hope this helps. If this information was helpful please click the accept button.
