rainyraven is on a distinguished road
Default Having a strange random starting issue

Hello everybody finally found out how to post a new thread


ok so I just bought a 2007 with 30,000 miles..
long bed 4wd slt,
problem is sometimes i go to start and truck fires up rpm goes up and then falls down engine dies,
you try to restart the truck and it does the whole thing over again about 3 times
then you try to start it again and nothing happens the starter motor does not even make a sound.. all lights inside the truck are on everything else works etc..

then I play with the igition swith and last time it would not start I hit the unlock button on the key fob and then I turned the key and vrooom Hemi comes to life

I took the truck into the dealer today and truck throws no codes

I also noticed that sometimes when I turn the ignition key to off the radio light stays on.. could all my trouble be just the ignition switch itself?

Thanks for the help and sorry for the looong post

That's where I'd start my search, possibly a loose connection?
