    recheck the wiring to the alternator, did you replace the alternator with a new one or used one ? also look in the fuse box in the engine compartment near the battery for an alternator relay. it may be failing.

My battery gauge goes out and my check gauges light comes on and battery doesnt charge in my 2002 dodge ram 1500 slt with 5.9 motor

with the engine running use a volt meter to check battery voltage with the head lights on, should be around 14 volts on a 12 volt system, if 12 volts or less the regulator or alternator is at fault . if around 14 volts there is a drain or short, the battery could also be faulty.

I have a 2000 dodge durango rt and the gauges keep turning off and on as im driving why?

This could be battery related as fluctuations in voltage on the instrumentation bus can cause the symptom you describe

Check gauges light on, not charging, battery dead, unable to keep started after charging.

It sounds like a bad alternator. To verify, pull alternator off and have any good parts store bench test it. Most will do this for free.

1999 dodge durango wont start

Remove and clean both battery terminals, then reinstall making sure they are both tight. Also check the battery voltage with a voltmeter (it should read 12 volts minimum) or better yet take it to get it tested. The battery may need to be replaced.

Check gages lite comes on

Check gauges light only comes on when one of the gauges is out of perameter. Check to see which of the gauges is not working properly and then check that system.
