check that the connection to the computer is pressed full home and is making good contact. Run fault codes to find any faulty sensors. Reset the CPU using a code reader.

Charging system voltage low


there are only 3 parts. but the causes are 25 or more.
1: belt missing slipping,
2: engine rpm below 800 RPM (lots of ways ,ask )
3: ALT had.
4: wiring to ALT bad.
5: bad battery or its connections, (wires)
6: bad fuse. see fuse link a11? on fFM page 20?
7: car is PCM alt controlled, it can be bad too. see 2 field wires on ALT and PCM on page 20? below?
8: battery temp sensor bad. making PCM think battery overheats.
the fSM covers all tests above.

pick car here, then pick charging.

My 1992 dodge ram power 250 cummins turbo diesel wont charge replaced alt and battery and still wont charge what can be my problem?


My 1992 Cummins W250 auto trans turned out to be the Computer/ECM mounted on front fender by battery tray. Mine only acted up in cold wheather. It started out with the ASD (auto shut down relay) clicking rapidly. In addition the water in fuel, wait to start and check engine light also blinked fast. In this state, the battery would not charge.

Shut 05 Ford f350 diesel off wont start


when you get a code the PCM will keep that code and till it get easased. you need a scaner or disconect your battery for 1h. this should clear your codes. when the battery is disconected don't sit in your can. the air bags may deploy if you hit the steering collem or a sensor to hard. just let it sit. reatach your battery then try to start your truck. if the codes are still pressent you make need let the car sit for longer or bit the big one and get the shop to do it.
