Question about 1987 Dodge Ram 50
I have a '87 Dodge Ram Truck, and all though I dont use it alot, I still go out and start it, and let it run for a while to keep the battery charged. But lately I have had problems keeping it charged. I do not know how old the battery is, and the way that the former owner has it stuck in there, I wouldnt be surprised that is part of the problem. But today, while I had the battery on a charger, I messed around with the voltage regulator, and it popped right off, do you think that I may need a new voltage regulator, or a new alternator?
Thanks for your help!
I had this problem it was a dead short in the horn that was broken.

Just wanted to let you all know that I got the truck fixed, actually played around with a couple things, and hit the starter relay, and after havi the battery charging with another car, it did start. I went down and talked to my mechanic today, and we discussed a few things, and I am going to take the truck down to my mechanic, and have him charge the battery for a few hours, and then see if its the battery, alternator, voltage regulator, or the starter relay. Thanks for asking about it.
