Question about 2007 Dodge Caliber
Paperwork that came with the alternator said if still not charging after replacing the alternator, disconnect the battery cables and touch them together for approx. 20 minutes reconnect and try again. It said that would reset the system, however it's still not charging. I checked out some forums and found a reset that might help, they called it a key dance. Turn the key to on and back off 3 times, then turn on wait a couple seconds and start but that didn't work.
Make sure the alternator is receiving power in the plug .

what it sounds like is that you may have a loose ground somewhere,most likely a ground strap from the engine block to the frame to the battery. chances are that because of the loose ground your altenator maybe charginging properly but the looose ground the current is not going to the battery so as you are driving the battery is being discharged. if this doesn't solve the problem then i suspect that your alarm is the problem. it is hardwired to the positve side of the of the system and is drawing your battery down. please rate the solution...thanks

With the battery charger connected or a jumper battery simply click the alarm key fob on and then off. This will reset the alarm and the car should start...had mine towed to find this out

Check the connection on your battery terminals. They could be corroded and this causes a gap between the battery's power and you car's terminals

I had this as well. the dealer had to replace a computer component and issued a new SAMRT Key that was linked to the the new part. N/C.
