Default 2002 ram 1500 wont start, weird one!

2002 ram 1500 4.7 4x4 will not start with the key, there is no key chip, but it will start with the remote starter, when started with the remote, turning the key to run will not disengage the remote starter if i turn the key to start i can hear the starter engage and grind the ring gear, anyone have any ideas on this one?? i'm thinking maybe loss of power to the ignition switch somewhere?
Can anyone point me to where i can find a wiring diagram for the ignition/starter system? it seems this information is a matter of national security or something because i cannot find it online lol

well my guess was right, another bad wire feed to the ignition switch. there is a red wire and a red white wire that feed the switch. one read only 10 volts,all fuses are good, bad connection or failing wire maybe? put a jumper across the two and it fired right up.
