Question about 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 Truck

1 Answer

No charging I have a 2006 dodge ram 3500 diesel. It is not charging the batteries and it is not registering on the volt gauge. Before this when it was cold you could hear the charging click in and out and you could see it on the gauge as well. Is this the alternator or something else?

Check gauge/low voltage


May or may not throw a code, have you had the alternator checked, this sounds like a bad alternator and also you charged the batteries but have them tested also, this sounds like an alternator problem.

ARE YOU HAVING PROBLEMS STARTING? WHAT IS YOUR CONCERN? 13.8 VOLTS IS PRETTY GOOD FOR DIESEL ALTERNATORS I'VE SEEN IN MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE DODGE DIESELS

When i start my ram 2500 w a diesel, the gauge says it is charging fine. then i start driving, and the meter goes to 8 volts. i noticed the fuse that is in the power centre is blown. is this the caus eof...


Replace the fuse and check the wire from the alternator to the fuse for damage. Also check the batterys before you change the fuse and after with the truck running with a volt meter. After the fuse replacement the battery should read 14 to 15 volts. Also check the fluid level in the battery. If the cells are low you can put distilled water in them to bring them back up to proper level. Hope this will help you.

Charging problem on 1996 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins Turbo Diesel


I had the same problem on a 94 dodge with the cummins. It seems the crank sensor that reads from a notch on the harmonic balancer was the problem Without this sensor reading that the engine is running the alternator wont charge. Possibly the same problem with yours

Will not start


make sure both batteries are charged, clean battery terminals, make sure the wire coming from the rear of your alternator is snug on the positive battery post. I take it that it's a diesel-(you said batteries} One last thing to try if it's turning over good but not firing; CHECK THAT 10 AMP FUSE THAT SAYS: ENGINE FUSE. hope this helps
