or if it THINKS(sic) that the batter internal resistances is too high. for ANY REASON what so ever. it will shut down
these protections prevents the ALt. from blowing expensive electronics (all of it) to kingdom come. $$$$$

My van 1998 3.o dodge caravan is making a clicking noise,my battery keeps going dead what do i do?it will start when i jump it


first of all, check voltage from alternator. at battery when running, should be at least 13.6-14.2 volts. with every thing off. if lower than 13.6 volts at battery. then alt, is bad. if alt, is ok ! then its the battery. or the battery connections are all corroded at battery post. good-day! make sure the grounds are ok to battery.

Battery acts dead, get a jump start and it runs fine. Battery load test shows battery and alternator are good. Could it be a bad relay?


The battery may have a bad cell. If a jump gets the vehicle started, replace your battery and you should be fine.

1985 dodge powerwagon, lights went dim driving home now wont start, just replaced battery 6 months ago. starter clicked at first then nothing.


The alternator may not be charging the battery. Jump start it, and use a volt meter at the battery, red lead to positive and black to neg. The meter should read between 13 and almost 15 volts, any lower than 13 volts, the alternator is no good. (this is done with vehicle running).

1998 ford exped v8 battery is good, but turn ignition key, battery goes dead. have a clickng sound in fuse box, battery will jump off and stay running but when i turn it off will not start back up


battery is low on voltage, it is either bad or the alternator is bad. after you jump start check volts at the battery . if volts are below 13.00 the alt is most likely bad. if volts are about 14.00 alt is good. battery is bad.
