Default 97 Ram randomly will not start

has become increasingly more frequent,when it happens no fire to coil or fuel pump--jumped ASD to get it home last time--could be crank,cam/dist.,ignition starter switch,or ECM.What would be the probable defective part being that the truck only has 112, + miles w/remote start & sirus radio/remote start co. says ,their system would not do that---ty for you're responses in advance

Welcome to the forum!

When you say it won't start, does that mean that it just cranks but won't start, or won't even crank?

Glad to see that you wound up on the Z. There are different sections of the forum set up specific to the generations if you need help in the future. It's also a great place to just hang around. General Discussions and I've heard of an "off Topic" section.

Not to forget the vendors that can help with any modifications you might like to personalize your vehicle.

Take some time and brows the site, maybe even make a few friends!

Newbie how tos is always a good idea. It might help to familiarize yourself with how-to's on using the site and is a good reference tool for the future. One of the most underused aspects is reputation. It's used to say thanks to a member that may have helped, or pointed you in the right direction.

The little scales of justice in the upper-right hand corner of their reply has it. Just click on it and add to their reputation.

Also try to remember posting if you have an issue with your Ram and solve it. That also helps other members solve their issues.


Enjoy the site!

Hello and welcome to the forum, glad to have you join us! Sorry to hear about your problem and I have the same question, is it cranking just not turning over or not cranking at all? Best place to post that question where you can get some good advice is in the 5.2 section for your truck, here's a link: http://www.ramforumz.com/forumdisplay.php?f=172 but good luck and be sure to keep us posted! Lots of great people and info here, so any help you need, just ask and I hope you enjoy the site!

Welcome to the forum,
This forum is full of great looking trucks; packed with great mod ideas and there are loads of knowledgeable and experienced people here.

I would check the electrical connections at the ECM and power distribution. Sometimes just cycling the connectors will make the difference. Any chance you hooked up a code reader to check for pending codes? Is the CEL/MIL (Check Engine Light) lit up?

AND - We all like pix! Got any to share?

Enjoy the Z!

You'll get a lot more attention if you re-post this issue under 2nd Gen Rams. I'm thinking crank position sensor.

Here's a link to the section http://www.ramforumz.com/forumdisplay.php?f=175.
