Please help. My 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9 Liter will not start.

Asked by Mar 09, 2017 at 06:02 PM about the 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr ST 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have replaced the starter, the battery, the positive battery cable that runs to
the starter, and it still will not start.  When I turn the key, all is does is click, like
the battery is dead.  
Also, I have already checked the ground wires from the battery and the
starter.
