Question about 2005 Dodge Ram 1500
My 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 acted like battery was dead. Charged the battery, started up, and drove a few times. Truck sat for month and it wouldn't start. Got a new battery, but still won't start. The interior & dash light flicker while it makes a clicking noise. The starter clicks like it's not getting enough power to start when I turn the key. Does this have something to do with the computer? Does it have 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.
