The voltage is controled by the ecm you will need a scanner to be able to read the date stream . the odds are that ecm has failed.

My 1991 Dodge ram 1500 ,318 motor alternator is new. Everything grounded Good. But not charging battery. And when I jumpstart it take the jumpin cables off test the battery and alternator with voltage...


My first point to check would be the fusible link for it. Check the wiring diagram in the shop manual and its location in your year/model/VIN and check it. Suspect it was fried by inadvertently arcing at alternator out put lug when servicing alternator.

How to remove a stripped out spark plug from a 1999 dodge ram 1500 5.2 liter


Pain in the rear end. but it can be done. Remove the head. and pound it out. Use a helicoil the re thread the hole. If you have to do this, redo the heads, if it has above 170,000 miles , replace the engine. Not worth the head job. But if it were mine. I'd replace it if it had anything above 130,000 miles.

1996 dodge ram 1500 4x4 low voltige to transmission


If you only have 5 volts you may have a bad battery or alternator. Or maybe a B+ (battery positive) wire short to ground. Check voltage engine running at the battery then alternator +. If your voltage is that low your TCM won't work.

New battery but still acts dead - Does computer need to be reset?


do not suspect computer.
1 the new battery may not have been charged from the store so would need to be charged before use, charge new battery on a charging set and see if this resoves the problem. *or use slave leads and start from a second vehicle)
2 your alternator may not be charging the battery so after a while it will just die. use a volt meter and check that volage is increaseing to your battery when the engine is running.
if not suspect alterantor defective and may need replacement.
