Just wondering if anyone can give me some advice for my truck...I wasnt here but the wife said she started the truck to let it warm up and when she came out it wasnt running, you turn the key and the pre heat lights dont come on, lots of power in the battery and frome what I have read on here I doubt its the ignition switch. I cleaned all battery connections etc, and all the fusible links that I have found are ok. I dont know much about Dodge wiring stuff, and less about diesels lol! If it was a carburated small block chevy I would be ok! Its an automatic so the neutral saftey switch could come into play,I did move the shift lever to all positions and tried it no go. I am sure its nothing serious although the stopping running does have me concerned,any help ,suggestions or wiring diagrams greatly appreciated!!

Try looking at the starter wiring. Not sure on the dodge trucks but about every vehicle has power going from your battery to the starter, then goes from there. Sounds like your main battery wire may have rotted off or lost connection. Make sure it is all clean and the ends are securely on the wire. I have seen the end still be on the wire and be corroded off on the inside, the wire end will pull right out. Also check your grounds. If no lights or anything on it sounds like the starter wiring. Try there and let us know what you find out and go from there.
