Question about 1997 Dodge Dakota
Hey Bob , you need to check an see if there is battery voltage at the bigger wire connected to the alternator ! This wire has a fuse for protection , if it is open , burnt fuse ! This is the wire the charging current flows to the battery on ! This charging system is controlled by the powertrain control module , the two smaller wires in the connector come from the PCM . You would need a factory scan tool to see if the PCM is switch it on ! Do you have a charging or battery symbol lit on the instrument cluster ? Hope I was able to help an you catch what I'm saying ! good luck
