A few years back Chrysler had the brilliant idea to put the voltage regulator into the computer (all one unit) to me, that's as dumb as welding the spark plugs into the heads...But, if you have all wiring connected properly and the fuses are good, chances are that's where your problem is.There is a "work around" that can be done using an old style regulator but it will cause the check engine light to come on and that will cause problems with inspection in many states.

2000 Dodge Ram cargo van trouble starting and once started will not keep running tried jumping battery and no change what should we try next?


Sounds like the alternator is bad (not charging). If your battery is good/charged it should run until the battery is drained. If the battery is bad/not charged the car will die as soon as the cables are taken off as there is not enough juice to run the ignition system. If the alternator is good (but battery bad) the car would still run as the alternator makes power to run the car but becasue the battery is dead/drained there is no power to start the car (hense needing the jump). Have the alternator/charging system tested

Hoe to Replace an alternator on a 1996 Dodge Ram Van 2500 3.9L V6


Remove negative battery cable.
Remove the electrical plug and wireing. Mark them.
Loosen the alternator pivot bolt.
Remove the bolt that attaches the alternator to the adjustment arm.
Rotate the alternator to loosen the drive belt and disengage the belt from the pulley. Be careful that any spacers that are used in mounting are kept with their original bolts. This will make correct reinstallation much easier.
While supporting the alternator remove the pivot bolt.
Remove the alternator from the vehicle.
Do the reverse procedure to install new alternator.

on the alternator did you put the little washers where the regulator bolts on back of the alt they must be tight and also the ground cable from the battery to the alt bracket must be tight and grounded sounds like a loose connection
the washers go between the alternator and wires coming out of the harness and the alt also it probalbly goes dead occasionally when you crank it up

Altenator problems


On an American designed charging system the truck should remain running, on Japanese cars it will die, but to anser your question yes you almost surely have a defective alternator. Make sure the battery is fully charged before the new Alt. is installed, if you don't the new Alt can be overheated and damaged.
