i had a backup camera installed in a 2003 dodge ram 2500 Hemi, the truck before this has never had any problems at all. but after i had this backup camera installed when i put the key in the ignition i cant turn the key right away and have the engine start, i have to stick the key in the ignition and turn it to the start position, then wait 3 seconds then turn the key and the engine will start with no other problems. i was wondering if you guys have ever heard of this problem or what could be wrong?

The fuel system has a drain back valve at the fuel tank that helps keep fuel pressure up when the truck is turned off. I wonder if this was damaged in some way when the backup camera wiring was installed. :4-dontknow:

When you turn on the key, can you hear a whirring or buzzing sound from under the truck that changes tone in a few seconds. If so, you might be hearing the pump building pressure. In these fuel injected vehicles, I am in the habit of turning the key to the 'ON' position and pausing before I hit the 'Start' position strictly to allow the pump a head start. :)
