Yeah, I did a little searching and I am leaning towards the ignition being the issue. If you google "Dodge Ram ignition switch" or "ignition switch fan motor" and read some of the forum posts you will find some similar stories. I even ran across a few help forums where mechanics had posted ways to troubleshoot the ignition.

I would try to exchange for another new ignition and try that just to rule out the chance that you bought a bad one to replace your bad one. If that doesn't fix it my next guess would be in the wiring to and from the switch, mostly likely in the steering column close to the switch.
