Guy asked me if I knew anything about this.
He has a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500, was starting normally, then one time he got
in and turned the key, no warning lights or gauges, nothing happened. He
waited a few seconds and then the gauges jumped and the truck started.
It is now doing this more often than not, but no he has also noticed that
if he gets in, puts his foot on the brake and starts it, it starts right
up, and then shuts down when he takes his foot off the brake.
The Dodge dealer said "It's probably the electrical control" for $600 plus
2 hours labor.
