Question about 1984 Dodge Ram Wagon
1984 dodge ram 150 power wagon, 5.9 ltr. 4x4, have tried 100w and 65w alternators, still fried 3 batteries and just fried the forth, found a melted wire going to the power regulator, the wire is melted at the alternator where it connects, i had replaced the wire before with the same issue, also replaced the regulator 3 times as well, what could be causing all of this and where should i start looking?
Check all the wiring,the wire insulation is very bad in these years and it cracks and falls off the wires that could be causing the short plus as stated in the other solution,bad grounds,battery to block and engine to body,on mine i ran a new ground to everything,also check your battery cables,acid can get into the cables and eat the wire and you may not be able to see it.
