SOURCE: Truck won't start, new battery, lights keep flashing

Sometimes the new battery is not 100% charged. Put it on a charger or jump start the car, the alternator should then charge up the battery.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge ram 1500 flashing red light and dead

When you disconnected the battery, you tripped the alarm which locked down everything. In your owners manual, look under the security or alarm system. It will tell you how to disarm your particular alarm system. If I am not mistaken on these you put the key in the drivers door and lock and unlock it 2-3 times. If you do not have the owners manual, you can contact dodge and they will walk you through it.

New battery but still acts dead - Does computer need to be reset?


do not suspect computer.
1 the new battery may not have been charged from the store so would need to be charged before use, charge new battery on a charging set and see if this resoves the problem. *or use slave leads and start from a second vehicle)
2 your alternator may not be charging the battery so after a while it will just die. use a volt meter and check that volage is increaseing to your battery when the engine is running.
if not suspect alterantor defective and may need replacement.

Slow starting, almost acts like it has a dead battery at times but it does not, keeps trying to start and then finally starts


run a avr test on the battery.then check the wiring to the starter,the starter itself.alot of times people sya the battery is good because the headlights are bright,but 10 amps to run lights is not 300 amps to start a v8 engine.

Dead battery or alternator?


Sounds as if the alternator is shot.
You can take the battery and alternator in to any parts store NAPA, AutoZone, Murrays, etc. to have it load tested for free.
