    I have a 2011 Ram 1500 SLT V8 the problem the truck is giving me is that the truck will not start up by turning the key like it should. I have to jump start it every time for the truck to start and most times if I turn the truck engine off I’ll have to give it another jump start. It all started when the ETC service light came on the truck wouldn’t start so had it replaced with another ETC (electronic throttle-control) it ran good for two days and then it started doing it again not wanting to start so I tried jump starting it and it started and that seems the only way that’s how I could get the truck to start for now. Any suggestions on what’s causing this issue and how to fix?

    I’d check the battery and have it load tested, also check all power and connections and ensure they are all clean and tight.
    Might also inspect the fuse box both top and bottom for corrosion.

    I’d start off by checking your battery. A weak battery can cause issues.

    I checked everything you mentioned and all looks good as for the fuse box, connections, cleaned up connections and tighten terminals. As for load test I’m not sure what you mean and what power would I need to check for?
