I have a 2015 Ram 1500 4dr/4wd 67k miles 5.7. Been great vehicle since I bought it used 3yrs ago. Was running errands .. came out .. truck would not start .. no click/no crank .. dead. Messed with key fob .. about 5 mins .. started up .. so I took off .. went maybe 4-5 miles .. truck died mid flight. 5-10 mins go by after fooling around with key in ignition ..started again .. took off .. died mid flight again a couple miles later. Couldn't get it started this time .. got towed. It is dead in my driveway .. turn key .. no click/crank .. have dome lights .. dash (speedometer//tach) illuminated .. battery good. radio display .. "Anti Theft Code -- Code Error - Please Restart the System". No power .. can't even get windows up. Any ideas .. would at least like to get power so I can close the windows (rain). Am I at the mercy of the dealers .. my mechanic won't touch it. Thanks. kws.

So try this. Disconnect battery. With battery disconnected turn key to on for like 20-30 seconds. Reconnect battery. May work, may not, but you got zero invested. Are you positive the battery is good?

hello djh3 .. appreciate your response. Tried your suggestion and also some variations on that I found .. no luck. The battery as far as I can tell is good .. got lights dome/head/tail. I have a call in to one dealer and a email to another .. neither has responded .. big surprise. Sure would like to avoid the dealer rip off if I can.
