Need to check for fuel and spark...you can try some starter fluid to see if it starts...if it does you have a fuel problem

SOURCE: 98 RAM 1500 WONT START

Replace the coolant sensor NOW!? Its causing a flooding condition as evidenced by wet plugs that short out when flooded. Blip the starter and see if raw fuel is blown out as another indication of a flooded condition. In cases of flooded engines, holding the gas pedal to the floor shuts off the injectors during starting to clear out the cylinders.

The brass replacement sensor will cure flooding and many other engine/transmission issues.

SOURCE: I have a 98 Dodge ram 1500 pickup cranks over but wont start. Was running fine last night. Started this morning for 3 min then died and wont start

Does it have spark at the spark plug's ? Does it have fuel pressure ? Is the anti-theft light on ? Have you check ASD relay in the under hood fuse/relay box ? There are videos on youtube diagnosing engine cranks no start condition .
