Question 1996 ram 5.2 won't start

I have a 1996 ram 1500 4x4 that has started giving me some grief I replaced the starter 2months ago and the fuel pump last week, now it won't start no click no nothing. all the lights work all the electronics work ,tested the starter today it's good, batt at full charge, all fuses checked out, I'm lost now someone said I should check out the Alternator but I don't understand what that has to do with my problem usually I can fix just about anything but this one has me stumped any help on this would be great
thanks Don

Try starting it in neutral . May have a bad neutral start switch .

For some reason my old s10 had this happen. Turns out my intake system grommets were bad, and was giving false info, and it wouldn't turn over. Sometimes it would. Check the MAF sensor and IAT

my dads durango does the same thing sometimes. it wont start in park but if you put it in neutral it starts that or maybe an ignition issue in the column. if its got tilt maybe see if it starts with the wheel at a different position.
