Wont start

Could be the diode pack on the alternator (or a short somewhere else). Disconnect the alternator to find out.

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

Car cranks, No start

could possibly be glow plugs if its diesel, or spark plugs for petrol. or look for any damage to the ht leads.
it could be a number of things, have u ever seen it running?

96 dodge ram 3500 diesel

Check the large probably 100 amp fuse under the PDC cover. Is this a 12 valve or 24 valve engine? If it's a 12 valve, it may be a bad crank sensor. It tells the PCM to turn on the ASD relay which supplies power to the alternator field.
