Hello Again and Thanks for the suggestions. After looking at that diagram and the pics...I will give that ground a look ! I checked all the grounds except those that were factory heat shrunk. I figured they were ok because they were still sealed and had not been hot that I could see. But after seeing that pic....Dodge did a piss poor connection there and mine could have shook loose on the Inside. I live a mile off the highway and my road Is rough as hell, so the truck has been hammered pretty good. I haven't fooled with the truck In about 3 weeks, but will get back on It shortly. This truck has been very dependable and never really given me any trouble other than normal crap like AC compressor, alternator, starter, some tie rods a radiator, the brakes as always and the bracket that the brake and clutch pedal work on wore out ( cast aluminum and flimsy plastic bushings)( so they didn't plan on It lasting from the get go) !
The original problem was that the truck just died at a 4 way stop...died just like you turned the key off, and would not restart. I had It towed to a shop that didn't know much of anything !!! The next day I went over and It fired right off and ran perfect. So I had them run a scan on It and said they couldn't find anything wrong with It. I paid them and started for home....I got about 20 miles and It died again and wouldn't start...I gave It a shot of starting fluid and It would fire of and run about 100 yards and died again. I towed It to the shop where I work and found fine metal In the fuel/water filter. This Is when I bought the Raptor pump off ebay, which probably wasn't the best plan but It was cheaper and new...anyway after the Install It would run just fine for a good while then die again when I would start driving It. I was already suspecting the Injector pump to be bad at about 190,000 miles so I bought one from Thoroughbred Diesel. It came In and I put It on. After the Install I bled the air and had her running just fine...setting there at Idle or even reving the engine up... It was acting fine. Test drive and about 3rd gear she would start stumbling and die...but would restart with a little effort. Before the Injection pump install the old pump ran fine until It would die...no 3rd gear stumbles...just die like cutting the key off, and It wouldn't restart for at least 2 hours. This leads me to think It was something I did when I put the new Injector pump on that caused the 3rd gear stumbles. After that I checked all the grounds that I could find, as well as replacing the fuel pump relay, and the cam sensor twice...same old crap...stumbles and dies. I had bought a gauge early on so I could check and set the lift pump pressure which I did at 18 pounds and It had been good. Anyway after dying again and losing fuel pressure due to the new Raptor going out, I called them up and got a replacement pump and put It on....got fuel pressure when I have It wired direct...but when wired through the Dodge system It drops power or ground and kills the pump. BUT...when wired direct the truck runs fine til I drive It and about 3rd gear the stumbles start then the truck dies.
This Is where I am at right now. My first instinct was that the original problem was electrical !!! That's when I started reading everything I could find on the truck electrical system. I still feel like my ECM is messed up but after all I have already spent I hate to go buy one then still have the same crap. Like I said In the first message I found the main battery ground on the passenger battery was almost off the block...two more rounds and the bolt holding It would have been on the ground and the cable completely loose !! I have no idea how long that ground had been loose or what damage It might have done to the ECM. At any rate I will check the grounds and see whats happening there first...after that I am going to try checking the timing to see that I didn't miss a tooth In there somewhere. After that about all I know to do Is start checking the wires that deliver the juice to the Injector pump and see If something Is wrong there. No codes have ever come up that were not explainable, and when It dies no codes come up, on the truck dash or my code reader,,,none are stored either. Anyway...thanks again and I'll check back later !!!
