1982 Dodge W250 starts, but doesn't run

Asked by Guru6VCK2 Mar 15, 2020 at 06:45 PM about the 1982 Dodge RAM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So, when you turn the key to Start, it fires up. But when you turn the key to
Run, to disengage the starter, for some reason it loses spark. I checked the
ballast resistor and coil wires, everything is good there. Is it the ignition switch?
It's a 318 with a 4 speed.

Thanks so much! I wasn't sure. Is there any way I could check with a multi-meter or something to check the ignition switch?
