Help! '02 Ram 1500 starting/not starting issues

06-14-2010, 06:52 AM
Truck was fine. Got in to go and wouldn't start. Checked fuses and relays. Still no start. Hooked it up to a code reader and no codes. Truck decides to start. Few hours later, it won't start again. After hooking back up to code reader, it started, still no codes present. Checked the coil and replaced the crankshaft position sensor, was running. Few hours later, won't start....please help. This is frustrating! Any ideas!?

Check the starter itself, when a starter fails it usually occurs suddenly and usually when you are somewhere that really creates a problem. Sometimes you can take a hammer or wrench and tap on the starter while someone turns the key. My wife's car starter dield at the post office a couple of months ago and I had to call a wrecker to get it home.

I don't believe its the starter. It's cranking it just won't fire....I am not a mechanic by any means though....?
