Question Blinking red light on dash.No power at all.

I just came home for lunch and went back to my 2002 Dodge Ram truck and it wouldn't do anything. I can't press the brake down, no power anywhere except for a blinking red light built in the dashboard. Is this giving me a code of some kind? I called the local dealership but they have no idea what's going on here and have obviously never heard of this. Mileage just reached 50,000 last week. Please help me !!! I have 4 kids and no way to get anywhere. My Dodge Grand Caravan is broke down too. It stopped and wouldn't start for no apparent reason about 3 months ago. From what I've read on here, that (the van) seems to be a sensor and I've had the 2 sensors that it could've been replaced, but now I suppose I'll have to get a code put in by a technician before that will do anything. Trust me, the problem is not the operator....it's the freakin' vehicles!!! Please, just let me know if you can help with my truck situation. Thank you so much.

I don't have an alarm system. Not even a keyless remote.

Yes. Thank you for knowing what I'm talking about !!! I hope you get paid for this because I'm very frustrated that the dealership couldn't tell me anything. I hope you're my lifesaver !!!

No. It's on complete lock down. It's making a chirping sound when it blinks.

from what it sounds, it would seem that the system had a problem, no from what i have been reading it doenst say how to fix the problem with out a scanner, what you can try is to pull the negative side of the battery for about 10 minutes and then re-attach and see if the problem persists!

I really appreciate your help and the time you've spent. I think I'm gonna wait and let my husband deal with this when he gets home (just in case it's trying to give some kind of code) that I might erase if I unhook the battery cables. Luckily, he has a work issued vehicle to drive for himself. No other passengers are allowed though .
You've been so kind and I thank you tremendously !!! I'll let you know what happens so you can pass this on to someone else that may run into this problem in the future.

well you can check for codes also with a key trick! You can see if it will work! The trick is to get in the truck close door, put the key in the ignition. turn the key to on-off,on-off, then to on and leave the key alone and watch where the odometer is and see if anything pops up like a code (ex. p0000 etc. "0's denote numbers") if a code pops up and you post it in this thread we can find out which code(s) its throwin!

Hi again. If 50377 is a code, then I guess that's it. If not, that's just my mileage. I've done that trick a few times and this is all I can get to show up.
