1999 cummins Diesel won't start

Asked by Jul 02, 2017 at 02:20 AM about the 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 4 Dr Laramie SLT Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

First of all, please bare with me as I don't
know much about engines. My truck was
cranking slow to start. My thought was my
batteries were low. (10/2013). It is now
6/17. Friday night it barely cranked over
and I needed to drive. When I was finished,
I went to my truck and it was totally dead.
Has maybe 75,000 miles. Got a ride home
and the next day bought two brand new
batteries. Installed them and the dash
lights come on, cab light and beeping, but
no cranking noise. Nothing. The auto place
assured me the batteries are fully charged
and they have a date of 6/17. They suggest
my starter. Any thoughts? Please use
laymen terms? Thank you. Frustrated 60
year old female proud she got the new
batteries in with help lifting them in place.
The guy that helped has no idea. Proper
placement like old batteries. Thank you.
