Does anyone know why a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 will not start in cold weather? When I do get it started I will push on the gas and it dies. Any answers to what might cause this? The motor is a 318.

I pity you folks. It was 70*F outside today. Some days I have actually been wearing shorts. The bad thing out here is the weather is kinda crazy. One day it's 80* and the next it's 50*. Or it's cloudy and freezing cold in the morning, and sunny and hot by lunch. Can't figure what to wear.

Get the battery checked and it show good have it fully charged to see if that helps. If you another vehicle there that you can get a boost from, try starting it while the two are connected to see if the charge from the other vehicle helps to keep it running. These trucks don't like to run when the battery's are low or bad.

Sure, it keeps the Battery warm.You could sell yours since you wont ever need them! My friend had the same issue the other morning here. I got to jump start him when it was-12 and it sucked. I told him to get a block heater and battery blanket!But then again he would have to remember to plug them in.I'm lucky, I have a garage!

You are ALL correct. A while back he added a second battery because he wanted more power for all his crazy add ons or something like that.
All our trucks come prepared to accept a second battery on the passenger side because the Diesel had two batteries.

Charlie, you is correct sir. I hate this miserable place. The only nice thing is the weather. The people and taxes are driving me crazy! Can't wait to leave this hell hole!
