Cranks but doesn't run


Topic starter

I have a 2018 Ram 1500 5.7 hemi with 67k miles. It has a push button start and sometimes it will crank but immediately die. It will do this once or twice but then start with no problem. It doesn’t matter if I have just been driving or not it’s kinda hit or miss. However if I use the remote start it cranks with no issues what so ever. Is this a major issue and should I look into getting rid of this truck asap.


I'd suggest not using your email address as your username. It exposes your personal information to whomever visits the site and sets you up for scammers, should any visit the site. Nobody here will contact you outside of this forum. You can change it under the My Profile tab, in Settings. Thanks.

If remote start works but the button doesn't always work. I would assume they have the button. Has a problem for the ignition switch there. Because the remote start bypasses that
