I have a 97 cummins and it want charge the battery, the altenator checks out fine, the y say it a crank sensor if so where is it located


I dont believe a crank sensor is your problem. Make sure you trace all the wires and look for a bad connections. I have also had a few cummins diesels where the parts store said the batteries were good, but there just wasnt enogh there and two new batteries fixed it right up.

Charging problem on 1996 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins Turbo Diesel


I had the same problem on a 94 dodge with the cummins. It seems the crank sensor that reads from a notch on the harmonic balancer was the problem Without this sensor reading that the engine is running the alternator wont charge. Possibly the same problem with yours
