The battery is original but not low. We traveled out of town this morning and back with numerous stops. Fired up just fine every time. We maintain the truck pretty good and it only has a little over 80K on it.

does the engine cranks but wont start?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question

try disconnecting both battery cables and contact them together for one minute then reconnect them starting with negative first then positive

It will not even turn over. Nothing. When I open the fuse box under the hood there was two relays vibrating and humming.

do the headlights work?

No. The interior lights come on briefly but go off and the dash starts blinking gain. But when the dash lights are blinking and going crazy the words "no fuse" blinks between the miles on the odometer.

this means the "IOD" fuse has no power do to either battery not charge enough or fuse blown or missing, have you check all the fuses in the engine compartment or are you sure the battery is fully charge.?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question

Check fuses 2, 11 and 35 in the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM). outside of the engine compartment.
