I have a 2000 dodge ram 1500 with a 5.9 and I just walked

Customer Question

I have a 2000 dodge ram 1500 with a 5.9 and I just walked out to my truck just after parking it and it won't start
JA: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?
Customer: Yes I had that and the starter tested and both passed
JA: Are you fixing your Ram 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am fixing it myself. I have had the starter and the battery tested. I don't have power to the small wore that goes to the starter but I do have power to the starter relay.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No that is all

If you have power to the relay but no power on the small wire then I would suggest swapping the relay out.
