How to define Ignition Switch issue vs. Starter issue?


Recommended Posts

Need some help with intermittent starting. 1999 Dodge Diesel 24v. "Intermittently" after Wait To Start, I turn the key to start and nothing from the starter but all the dash lights work, radio, etc.. Try it again and everything is working. It is getting worse over the last 4 weeks, but I only drive it ever couple of days.

It sounds like the starter contacts wearing out. When mine did it would either start or click once and nothing. It finally just quit starting and I replaced the starter. Problem fixed. You can replace the starter contacts. Try reading thishttp://articles.mopar1973man.com/2nd-generation-24v-dodge-cummins/26-engine-systems/124-starter-contact-replacement

I cant seem to post any links:banghead:. It is in the articles section under engine systems. I did not know about this when mine went out, a lot cheaper than a new starter and there is no shortage of members who have done this.

Thanks - I copied the link and it worked. I think this is my issue! Well a picture can tell the story with 97,000 miles bad contact.post-12578-138698200353_thumb.jpg
