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

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.

I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 When Im driving for awhile the check gauges light comes on and oil gauge come down


You either have good oil pressure and a bad oil pressure sending unit, or your oil pressure really is low. Get it checked out, so you don'y destroy the engine.

Water in radiator boiling over-temp gauge rising and check gauges light comes on in my dodge ram 1500-2001---137000 miles. I have to pull over to let it cool down. Any idea what the problem is--thanks...


do you have coolant in the truck? if so the next thing to check would be the thermostat. if that goes bad or sticks it wouldn't let any water pass thru to the motor.does your a/c work if so in might be the heater coil gone bad if it's not the thermostat.
