My battery gauge goes out and my check gauges light comes on and battery doesnt charge in my 2002 dodge ram 1500 slt with 5.9 motor


with the engine running use a volt meter to check battery voltage with the head lights on, should be around 14 volts on a 12 volt system, if 12 volts or less the regulator or alternator is at fault . if around 14 volts there is a drain or short, the battery could also be faulty.

96 Dodge Ram 1500, V8, 5.9L- Replaced alternator and battery, but battery drains within minutes of removing jumper cales


Disconnect the battery cables and inspect for contact corrosion, if present the alternator is not charging the car's battery because of a poor electrical cable connection. Next mix a solution of one part baking soda to three parts tap water and pour over both the cables and the battery contacts, allow the baking soda to dissolve the corrosion, once the fizzing has stopped, pour more tap water to clean remaining corrosion, dry with a paper towel and reconnect cables tightly to the battery.

Check output from alternator with a voltmeter it should be between 13.8 to 14.7 if so then check at battery if it is not at least 13.8 minimum to be charging then the big wire on back of alternator is not getting back to the battery through ammeter gauge in dash.
I have hooked a wire from back of alternator straight to the plus[+] side of battery to fix that issue.
Sometimes ammeter gauge burns out breaking the circuit from the alternator back to the battery.

on the alternator did you put the little washers where the regulator bolts on back of the alt they must be tight and also the ground cable from the battery to the alt bracket must be tight and grounded sounds like a loose connection
the washers go between the alternator and wires coming out of the harness and the alt also it probalbly goes dead occasionally when you crank it up
