    Truck won’t start unless jumper is connected.

    The bypass has been great, but know my remote start doesn’t work. Since the fuel pump only gets power when the key is on. Anyone know a way around this problem?

    Thank you all for your help. The bypass seems to have fixed My issue. Cost me $15 and less than 5 minutes of my time. Thanks again.

    So yeah, I scraped the terminals with my pocket knife. About it. But oddly enough. Since I took the truck off charge this morning. It hasn’t given me one sign of an issue. Like nothing at all is wrong.

    So maybe I should try changing the terminals and checking the grounds? It still has the factory terminals and the negative is bent up and because the factory terminals cover the entire post, I’ve been connecting the charger to the terminal itself.

    Thank you. That was very helpful. Unfortunately I’ve tested everything and the only thing I can come up with is parasitic drain. I’m currently having to con the charger after it’s sit for more than 20 minutes.

    At first it was just in the morning. Now it’s every time

    Maybe. But I’ll usually let it sit on charge a bit before trying to start it so you’d think the fuel would run back down. One day I primed and cranked for a good 10 minutes. Allowing 10-15 seconds between primes and trying to start every 8-10

    It will crank fine. Just like it’s not getting fuel. Until it starts to drag. The odd thing is if I hook the charger up or install a fresh battery it fires right up. Im not sure what to do

    I did swap the relays if they were the same just to see if it helped. I’ve been off work over a month so I don’t want to spend the money taking it to a shop. I know I need to test the fuel pressure. I thought it may be the fuel pump but I don’t want to start just changing part if it’s not going...

    I tried unhooking the battery and hooking it back up when I needed to start it but it just cranked and cranked. I primed the fuel line about 8 times and nothing. Hooked the charger up and it fired right up. It’s a brand new battery and I had it tested too.

    I have a 2012 ram 1500 4.7. The only thing I’ve done to it this year has been replaced the tail light bulbs with LED bulbs. This issue has slowly been getting worst. At first I could run the fuel pump a few times prior to trying to start and it would always fire up. It has gotten to the point...
