Question about 2001 Dodge Dakota
The volt meter on my 01 Dakota (4.7 V8) all of the sudden shows no power. The truck starts fine, runs fine, and all the lights and power options work fine. The meter goes up to normal when the truck starts but after about 10 seconds of running it goes down all the way. I just bought the truck and noticed that the battery looks undersized. I was curious if that could be the cause. I also checked and got this code. I got this info off autozones website.
Trouble Code: P1682
Charging System Voltage Too Low
I presume you live in a warm climate for one thing. the voltage regulator appears to be going bad... the problem with that is most modern alternators have them built into the starter. you may be able to r&r that part or you may have to replace the alternator.
If i remember right autozone will test it for free tho i'm not in the states myself so i'm not sure.
