cranks but then shuts off, lights work fine

Asked by Aug 06, 2017 at 12:28 PM about the 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 ST 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

08 dodge was running fine but when i went back to
start it minutes later it cranked up but before i
could put it in gear it died (did this 3 times) then
wouldnt turn over at all! My security light is on and
when it goes off the truck dies. When you try to
crank it and it wont turn over the light flash
multiple times. And all my dasch lights, door
locks,window controls, radio, ac work just fine so i
wouldnt figure its the battery. Could it be the fuel
pump ? But i figure it wouldnt crank at all if it was?!
Oh and if i keep trying to crank it (when it wont turn
over) it eventually fires up and runs 3 min (may run
longer but i killed it ) and when you try to start it
back you end up back at square one?!
