We need to have it scaned with capable scaner , these had issues with igntion switch , front control module , battery cables at starter loose corroded .
Have you tried a master reset yet ,try using procedure below and we go from thereMaster Reset1-Disconnect Both Battery Cables ,Positive & Negative .
2- Touch Cables With Each Other For 60 Secs ( this will take any residual power in the Harness to Reset the Vehicle Modules )
3- Wait 30 min
4- Close all doors and trunk
5- Reconnect Battery Positive First
6- Use The Key in The Driver Side Door
Lock Cylinder to Lock it & Unlock,IF You have only a Key Fob ,use it to lock and unlock
7- Enter vehicle and Start it .If you do not mind me asking are you looking for most possible causes or you repairing yourself ,Do you have any Experience in Electrical troubleshooting ,like finding power and grounds and checking fuses etc...do you have a capable scanner ,

I will take it to a certified mechanic but I need to get it started first..The security light does not flash
If the security light does not flash tbat is good ,
With a voltmeter , with switch in start postion do you read 12 volts ? If the battery is good and holding and you have replaced duster relay , most lik.ey starter is dragging if the cables to it not corrode , in more sever cases the igntion switch to blame,they key here us to figure out at time weir h in start postion are u getting 12 volt at starter ,if u are replace starter if u r not we have to work back to the igntion switch we have train switch, cables , fcm module could be causing it, if that is the case best to have it scanned using Chrysler scanner or equivelant and read the module fault ,if switch or module issue it will have a fault stored in memory ,u can post that fault #here and I can pull up troubleshot and help u further and be more accurate, but the battery ,voltmeter and starter check u can do ur self if u have done keys ,'unduly the switch , module isues we see on 100 k miles on mileage and higher but testing us needed

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
