no

i stopped driving it because the shift lock broke and i could not get it out of park.. i replaced that and now it will not crank is it possible it does not recognize it is in park and will not start?

It is possible, can you put it in neutral and see if it cranks?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
i did and it does not.. i also just made sure the shift cable is in properly and it is
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
it also would not start before replacing the shift lock but i assumed the battery was just really dead from sitting. i tried to jump before working on it and it would not start so i replaced the battery after the shift was fixed

ok, do you have a test light or a volt meter?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
i have a test light

ok, first thing we need to check, is if it has power to the small wire on the starter, when cranking the key to start?

seems good there
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
also after i turn the key and the starter does not work, i release the key and i hear a click come from the starter

then you most likely have a bad starter, you need to actually check for power on the sn=mall wire at the starter, when cranking, can you do this?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
there is power to the starter

ok, then you have a bad starter, the large wire comes straight from the battery, and the small wire comes from the ignition switch, if you have power at the small wire when cranking, and it does not turn over, then its a bad starter, nothing else,Tim

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.
