Have a 2006 dodge 3500 cummins that just stopped charging Friday

When I first bought it a year ago it had a charging issue but cleaned the battery terminals and bolts and worked fine. It has been fine for over a year and Friday morning I went out and started it and it hasn't charged since

If you can jump start it and disconnect the jumper cables then let it run for a minute or two at just a bit off-idle to try a little charge provided your belt is turning the alternator pulley, then disconnect the negative cable from the battery. If it continues to run just off idle the problem is a sulphated battery. If it dies the it's time for a new alternator.

Testimonial: "It was the alternator, thanks for your help. With the TIPM I wasn't sure if you could still do that and heard the voltage was controlled through the computer. I was really afraid the TIPM was the problem, I've heard so many stories about them. Thanks again"

Cummins diesel in 2001 Dodge is cutting out and mild surge. code#s are P0500,P0370 P1693


you have codes related to the pcm, transfer pump and a vehicle speed sensor. these could be related or all individual issues. related issued could be wiring, untill you start doing testing it will be hard to tell.
start cheap and test the speed sensor first, then you can clear the codes and continue on any codes come back.


Disconnect the PCM harness connector(s).
Disconnect the Vehicle Speed Sensor harness connector.
Note: Check connectors - Clean/repair as necessary.
Measure the resistance of the 5 Volt Supply circuit between the VSS harness
connector and the PCM harness connector.
Is the resistance above 5.0 ohms?

2004 Dodge Ram 3500 5.9 cummins cuts off while driving down the road.


If no CEL you must take this to a dealer for trouble shooting. Double check battery connections and all fluids. May just be a safety issue preventing self destruction. Good luck..

Charging problem on 1996 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins Turbo Diesel


I had the same problem on a 94 dodge with the cummins. It seems the crank sensor that reads from a notch on the harmonic balancer was the problem Without this sensor reading that the engine is running the alternator wont charge. Possibly the same problem with yours
