Good afternoon, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** would be happy to assist you with this today.

When you saw the smoke did you smell any burned plastic smells?

I did..however it was dark and I was unable to find the source
Dodge Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay, I have a feeling that it was most likely the starter solenoid failing. I would recommend trying to benchtest the starter and see if it will engage on it's own or if it is completely dead

I'm in a bad cell service area..so unable to call..its intermittent, and most likely drop call
Dodge Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay not a problem, the website sends call prompts, I am just fine using this text feature with you :)

The other issue is the fuel pump has a tendency to keep running,after the truck is shut off..wondering if the tipm bypass would be a possible solution
Dodge Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

Yeah I have heard a few people who have had luck with bypassing it, occasionally it seems like it can develop other system issues tho. Does the pump run constant or for a few moments?

Yeah it runs until the battery dies
Dodge Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

Ok then it is possible that the tipm has shorted or the fuel pump circuits have a short to power/ground, it should normally shut off within 2mins but it should not keep running

Yeah a friend of mine..,has been googling some info..,and he just sent me a few scenarios,of other people having the exact same issues..and all were solved with the bypass..I'm still a little skeptical,because of the smoke..although I was informed the smoke may have been a result of loose battery connections..low voltage can cause wires to smoke
Dodge Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

Yeah if the terminals were loose enough it is very possible that they moved around and arced enough to create sparks that were smoking
