A lot of Chrysler products have the voltage regulator in the computer. I would check the charging system wiring first for poor connections and if nothing else is found there is nothing else for you to do but change it.

Dodge 1500 generator light came on. Truck died, checked battery & alternator both are good.


When you say the alternator is good, what do you mean ?
If the alternator is charging the battery, the warning light should not be on.
The voltage regulator for the alternator is inside the engine computer. So the computer could be faulty.

Hi Les, I;m glad to help. There is an fusible link that runs off the battery cable pull on it and see if it comes apart, if it does replace it and see if everything is working properly. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Les.

My alternator keeps going out


The voltage regulator isn't being turned on when it is need

The challenge it to look at wiring diagrams & see what controls it

Jumping a dead battery is a dangerous thing to do

Batteries require they be fully charged before being put
back into service- to continue any testing

If you even jump a car made in the last decade,
you may smoke the electronics

On newer cars you disconnect the battery, to charge
it alone from the vehicles systems

The definition of code 45 nis "CHARGING SYSTEM VOLTAGE TOO LOW".

To put it plain and simple, It is trying to tell you that your computer is starving to death.

This could be due to a shorted battery, a bad alternator, bad/corroded battery cable connections or a combination of these things. Fix your charging system and you will most likely fix your engine running problem.
