Question about 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck

1 Answer

2000 dodge ram check guage light comes on. have a new battery and new alternator. also blew a 50 amp fuse.

Battery wouldn't charge. I had to replace the radiator hose. to do this, I had to remove the alternator. as I was putting it back on, I dropped it, touching the air conditioner hose, which in turn blew a 50 amp breaker. I replaced the breaker, battery, and alternator. now shortly after starting it, the check guages light comes on, which shows the battery is't charging. I've had the battery checked, alternator checked, and the breaker is good as well. what would make this light come on and my battery to not charge?

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.

SOURCE: 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 ,4.7L V-8 Battery is not CHarging

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.

SOURCE: check guages light came on

The main problem is the alternator has went out,and the battery voltage dropped to low for it to run.Most likely the computer has lost memory sense the battery was dead,or close to it.I don`t know the year,but this is most likely what happened.The computer would have to be reflashed at the dealership.But be sure to look for a main fuse to be blown,check all fuses,this might have happened,and not the computer.

Briefly installed battery backwards. 2000 Ford Ranger. New Battery, new alternator, but alternator not charging battery. Truck starts on battery-new starter motor. Lights work, all electrical works


Is this the alternator that was in the vehicle when you hooked the battery up wrong? If so, you probably blew out the voltage regulator in the alternator.
