Question about 2005 Dodge Ram 1500

1 Answer

Went out to start my 2005 Ram and battery was very dead, would not take a jump. When I charge the battery, I get headlights back but no start. I disconnected the charger, and the next morning the battery is dead again. When I turn on the headlights I get a pulsed beep about once per second. Security light and odometer LED flashes at same time. Keyless entry seems to work fine.

2005 Chevy Aveo, clicks but start won't catch and when jumped it doesn't charge what could it be??


Your alternator is not charging the Battery, I would replace the battery with a new gel battery and have the alternator checked, bets on your battery just died.

Driving and shut off while driving could turn on with key but here clicking sounds wouldnt turn over would this be the pcm


Sound like the alternator went bad and is no longer charging. Are the headlights dim? Have you tried jump starting? Have you measured battery voltage while you try to crank it over? If it drops below 12 volts the battery is dead. If it starts with a jump you should see around 14 volts at the battery with the vehicle running. If you see less the alternator is no longer charging.

Car is completely dead, like somebody shot it dead! No sounds, no light, can't shift out of park into neutral or anything....everything completely dead...no warning whatsoever!


Always clean the battery terminals before jumping. An extremely dead battery may not accept a jump as it serves as a 'buffer" instead of helping. If you do get it started, charge battery with a battery charger then have alternator and battery tested for proper operation and check belt condition and tension as well.
