Question about 1987 Dodge Ram Wagon B250
My Dodge is my baby. I've had this van for about 1 year now. 150,000 miles, 3.9 engine and purrs like a kitten all regular maintenance was kept up great. Nothing leaks, check engine light never comes on. Totally reliable I have one problem that just started that i am not farmiliar with. Van may start perfect 10 times straight. On the 11th start nothing, no power no click, no sound, nothing. If i hold the key in the start position or turn it a few times then it will start. Battery is fine, Altinator, belt & pulley have already been replaced about 6 months ago. check engine light is NOT on. So what chould it be?
If you van has a security system in it, it could be causing this problem. they usually disable the starter circuit. Paul has listed good places to start. but if they don't fix it do this: when your trying to start but its not working have some one check voltage at the starter. there are 3 points to check 1: where battery cable connects 2: where starter connects to solenoid 3: small wire that operates solenoid. if there is voltage at all three point replace starter it has a shorted / open spot on armature. voltage at 1 and 3 but not 2 replace solenoid. voltage at 1 but not at 3 and you have already checked the items Paul identified check wiring between neutral safety switch and solenoid.

Could be that your automatic gearbox is not well placed in "p"
So you should just pus the lever up a little more
