Have a 2013 Dodge...

Have a 2013 Dodge Ram 1500. drove truck earlier this morning and ran fine. Just tried to start it and nothing. Lights come on, dash lights up, but when turning the key the engine will not start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

No

Resetting the battery, turning the key back and forth several times and nothing

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

It is not on
Dodge Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

Thank you. It sounds like your issue is either going to be the starter relay, the fuse, of the starter it self. Just a moment, please, while I located fuse location information and testing for this issue.

Where is it located in the fuse panel?
Dodge Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

Here, I am attaching the location of the starter relays and the 40 amp starter solenoid fuse. Check these component to see if they are good, the relays can be switch with relays of the same part number to test.

Here, I am attaching testing information for the starting circuits. This information will help you pinpoint the issue. Also, if the fuse and relays are sound, then you will more than likely end up replacing the starter.
