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.

Truck won't start however once i get a jump it is


checke your altenator for charge. if the altenator is putting out more than 10 volts your truck will still run but your battery will not charge , a good altenator will produce 13.0 - 14.25volts .

Take your gen off and have it tested by a local auto shop, Autozone does it for free. May need to be replaced.

Check lights


It could be from a few issues. It definitely has to do with either the generator not working properly (recharging the battery, or a faulty battery not holding a charge. If you happen to have a voltmeter, you can test the battery voltage before you start the truck (should be about 12 volts), then test it while the truck is running (should be reading around 14 volts) this will mean the generator is charging the battery. Most batteries last about 3-5 years on average. If the voltage is not above 12 volts when the truck is running, the generator is bad, and you could get stuck with a dead battery.
