I have a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 That will not turn over on

Customer Question
I have a 2007...

I have a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 That will not turn over on ignition. Battery checks good and no fuse problems. This problem is sudden with no prior problems. We did read scan codes prior and had a code P0441 code. Erased the code and then tried to start. There is no ignition. Any ideas?

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the battery look like it's leaking? And does it have a strong smell -- like sulfur?

No the battery is fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. I am working on it myself. Looked at starter wire connections. Connections are clean and tight. Checked ignition fuses and found all to be in good shape.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Truck started and ran fine yesterday with exception of the P0441 error code.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that can prevent the engine from cranking and it will require some electrical testing to determine what is going on. You could have a bad TIPM, PCM, it may be a wiring issue or a bad ignition switch, the transmission range sensor, it could be SKIM related.

Did it simply not crank, or did it start and die several times before locking the starter out?
