Question about 1996 Dodge Ram

Replaced the alternator on a 96 RAM 2500, now the truck shuts off

Now the truck shuts off unless I keep the gas to it. Did I hit something when I took the alternator out? I dont see anything obvious under the hood.

Dodge computers reset if you unhook the battery so the truck needs to relearn how to idle and run. Help to truck idle for a while and it should start to do itself after about a minute

We just changed the spark plugs , oil and air filter in my 2004 dodge ram 2500 hemi and now it wont stay started unless you keep your foot on the gas


Make sure that all the hoses are connected properly. If the intake has any leaks between the throttle body and the air filter housing the computer will not see air entering the engine and you will have this problem.

I have a 1995 dodge ram cummings 2500 truck. The truck will start, but when you turn the key switch, off the truck keeps running.


you probably have a stuck relay for the fuel shutdown. i had a 96 ram 2500 cummins that would do the exact opposite . the relays are on the firewall just above the engine and to the right ,kinda between the engine and the brake booster. it will be two relays mounted by themselves. you can unplug them and it should shut down.. i am no expert, but it took alot of trial and error for me to figure out my problem. if you follow the wires from them they will go down on the drivers side of the motor ,you will find a disconnect in this section of the harness. unplug it there.

Transmission- 2001 Dodge ram 2500 diesel 4X4


I have a 2002 Dodge Ram that doesn't like to shift into 2nd when flooring it from a Stop. Imagine if you were to floor the gas in neutral, the engine REDLINEs and the engine governor kicks in to keep the RPM from blowing the engine......while stuck in first Gear. If i let off the gas, it goes into 2nd fine. I have replaced the Speed Sensor on the transmission ($18) and it seemed to fix it for one day. After 200 miles, its doing it again. ANybody have legitimate answers in here? Its only got 60K miles..wtf?
