Question about 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck
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.

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.

the clutch on your A/C compressor has siezed. find the compressor then turn on van then a/c see if belt is moveing the pully.

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.

first of all, check voltage at battery car off should read at least 12.5 to 13 volts. now start car. at battery it should read at least 14 volts, if lower then 14 volts check alternator.
