2008 dodge ram 1500 won't start

Asked by Aug 29, 2016 at 01:23 PM about the Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2008 dodge ram 1500 won't start without a
jump. I changed the battery checked the fuses and
all the connections. They all seem good. The cab is
getting full power but when I turn the ignition the
starter just clicks. If I jump it it starts up just fine.

worn starter motor bearings my advise to you is to take your automobile to your local shop and a qualified technician should be able to diagnose the malfunctioning starter motor

The battery you replaced had a cranking amps requirement. Did you replace it with the same or higher cranking amps battery? This would explain why you can only start with a jumper battery and or worn starter bearings. I hope this helpful or not too late.
