Asked by Aug 25, 2017 at 04:04 PM about the 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT Quad Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Got home from work and shut the truck off as usual. 3-4 seconds later before
I could even open the door to get out I notice the truck was preforming the
CAN /BUS test all by itself and just before that quit running it's test I hear the
starter motor cranking the engine over and it started up all by itself! It
wouldn't shut off with the key  even after trying several attempt to do so
(turning the key from the run to off position) The only way I got it to shut
sown was by removing the "Engine Control" 30 amp fuse from the fuse block
under the hood BUT then even with the fuse still in my hand it once again
tried to restart itself but wouldn't run with the fuse out. As a last resort I
disconnected the Negative battery cable and that's where I stand at the
moment,.. ANYBODY have any suggestions or idea what might be causing
this issue ??? This is the 1st time this has happened since owning the truck
