If they are Mopar, they are probably original. Unless the previous owner insisted on taking the truck back to the dealer for repairs, I don't think a Mopar battery can be purchased outside of a dealer.

Slow cranking in the mornings or after sitting a period of time. It's a 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 diesel. original batteries


I would have the batteries tested at your local Sears or auto parts store. 6 year old batteries on a diesel motor is probably about at their life expectancy. If it's bad now, it will get worse in the colder weather. Probably need to replace them. Good luck.

1999 dodge ram 1500 won't start


Since you know the starter is good, now have the alternator and battery tested. If these are both good (if either or both are bad, obviously replace) then try replacing the starter relay; this will prevent a car from even turning over.

Also, check all starter fuses, iginition fuses and relays.

Q: Does the engine turn over?

Q: Does the engine start, then die, or just turn over?

Q: If it turns over, does it sound weak, or does it sound strong, like it's trying to start?

Q: Have you tired jump starting the truck? If not try this: if it starts and stays running, pull both battery terminals off. If the truck dies, replace the alternator. If it stays running, you may need to replace the battery. Look at the battery and see if there is a date sticker on it to indicate when the battery was purchased (or manufactured). (If diesel, have both batteries tested). If diesel, if jumpstarting from one battery doesn't work try the other one. Also, if diesel, make sure there is at least 1/4 tank of fuel as some diesels won't start if very low on fuel (pump does not reach very bottom of tank and will not syphin fuel in).

If gas/diesel, and it turns over, turn the key to the on position and have someone lean down at the back side of the truck (driverside) and listen for the fuel pump to engage. If no noise is heard, consider replacing the fuel pump. Inquire with an auto parts dealers as to whether or not this truck is equipped with a secondary fuel pump (usually located mid-way on the chassi).

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

or you can just start entering codes till it works, which will take you weeks or more.

Diesel engines like yours are ultra high compression, so they are hell on starters huge amp load to spin engine, make sure the battery has the max cold cranking amps availiable, have your battery tested and verify it's cranking amp capacity,I would use the original equipment battery from Dodge, they are rated as one of best along with Delco from GM.
