Spray some starter fluid into the throttle body to see if it will start. If it does, you have a fuel problem.

This is because the 1500 series is considered light duty regardless of whether it is 2x4 or 4x4. When you add the large mud tires and wheels to the vehicle, that alone stresses the hubs and transfer cases. Add in the overevvving and sudden start-stop jolts of mudding, and you have all the making of drive train failure. If you want to play big boy games, get big boy equipment.

Problem: I have a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 L HEMI. My ABS and Parking Brake lights were illuminated, and my speedometer needle would "bounce". Also when sitting at a stop sign or just sitting idle, the engine would stall, and often times stop running.

Solution: After long research on this problem, I decided to dig in and try to find the problem myself. I replaced the Rear ABS Sensor
($35) that's located on top of the rear differential. Still no fix. I then unplugged the ABS Controller (or Module) that's located directly behind the battery (You should see the metal brake lines running into the top of it.) When I unplugged it, I noticed LOTS of moisture in the plug. Using an air hose, I blew out the water and let it dry good. When I plugged it back in, and hooked the negative battery terminal back up THE PROBLEM WAS SOLVED!! Simple fix. Hope this helps.
Comments: Mar 01, 2010- I forgot about the Cruise issue. My cruise also stopped working, and I noticed my brake lights would stay lit anywhere from 2 to 10 seconds after lifting my foot off the brakes.
I simply replaced the brake pedal switch located just above the brake pedal. ($10) Took about 2 minutes if that.

Please rate and respond to both of my posts if this helps anyone else. I would like to get this solution posted all over the internet so we will no longer get ripped off by Dealerships for a simple fix. Thanks

Sounds like a major electrical failure, I'd be checking all fusible links, major fuses & relays. Also, for what it's worth I've seen this happen before and it was an internal problem with the battery, it happened to me personally and the battery was new, I swapped it out for a new one at auto zone and installed it, then it fired up and ran like new with no issues afterward!

Here's a link to a pdf file containing the headlight wiring diagram for your year model Dodge Ram 1500..
I can't help but notice that you say you've replaced the headlight relay? That's quite odd, because there is NO headlight relay on this vehicle- only a 40 amp fuse located in the power distribution box that sits behind the battery inside the engine bay.
The switch is notorious for burning out because there is NO RELAY on this vehicle, and there is a recall (#819) but this only affects 3500 models even though the headlight wiring is the same for 1500,2500 and 3500 model Rams.
Here are two more links that will help you troubleshoot your headlights problems.

My 05 Lesaber was doing this and I found the cable that was from the accelerator was sticking in the tube it runs through to the carb.I got WD40 and sprayed in the tube on both ends. It seems ok now.

Your Dodge Ram 1500 had options for 3 different rim sizes. They were 17", 20", and 22" rims from the factory. the largest wheel recommendations for handling and speedometer accuracy are as follows;
17" rims = 285 - 70R17
20" rims= 275 - 60R20
22" rims= 285 - 45R22
As a tire size rule, the first number is the millimeter distance from the road to the bottom edge of the rim such as the 285 then the second number say the 45 is the percentage the difference the width is to the height of 285mm. The letter R stands for radial and the last number denotes the size of the rim it fits on.
