Sounds like it.

It's really the regulator board, and you may be able to get just a board. Check at you local auto parts house.

I HAVE A 2004 DODGE RAM 2500 AND THE BEAKE LIGHTS QUIT WORKING


First check the fuse, if that is OK then test the brake light switch, with the pedal depressed the switch (located above brake pedal arm) should show 12 volts in and out.

2000 chevy silverado. alternator problems. start truck and meter shows about 11 to 12 amps for a few minutes then goes up over 14. Did this for several days. today started and went right to 14 amps then...


amps or volts
11 to 12 amps indicates nothing but if it is volts then it indicates that the alternator is not charging the battery
Battery voltage is 12 -13.5 volts and when charging is 14.5-14.8 volts dc
the rest of your statement indicates that the alternator or voltage regulator is faulty and you should have the charging system checked by an accredited auto electrician

Battery discharges in about 3 days if not run.


it may have deffective diode on the charging system(the alternator). 14 volts is an over charge in a battery. ampere reading must be on what the battery designed.

It wont hold its volts and it powers down when i drive it or let it sit running after 5 min new bat , alt , starter


your battery needs replacement, it may show 12 volts but the amps aren't being charged enough,, if you take the battery and have it load tested,, you will see that one or more of the cells isn't charging correctly,, if the battery checks out ok, then with the truck running, place test leads on the pos and neg battery terminals,, you should be seeing a reading of 13.5-14.5 volts,, if not your alternator is bad, if you do,, its the battery for sure , make sure also that all the battery connections are clean and tight ,, dirty or loose connections will prevent good charging

DID YOU CHECK THE GRIDE HEATER OR SELENIODE
CUMMINS USE GRIDE HEATER (INTAKE HEATER) TO REPLACE GLOW PLUGS
SELENOIDE IS SPECIAL FOR THAT JOB MAY LOOK LIKE REGULAR BUT ITS NOT
CHECK WITH KEY ON EARLY IN AM TO SEE IF HEATER IS GETTING POWER
USED AT 12 VOLT TEST LIGHT AT HEATER INPUT MAKE SURE GROUND IS GOOD
IF NO POWER CHECK SELENOIDE TO SEE IF POWER IS THERE IF NO POWER
CHECK LIVE SIDE OF SELENIDE THEN CHECK SIGNAL SIDE (KEY ACTIVATED SMALL WIRE) IF NO SIGNAL POWER CHECK FUSE IF NO MAIN POWER BACK TRACK TO BATTERY

When i start my ram 2500 w a diesel, the gauge says it is charging fine. then i start driving, and the meter goes to 8 volts. i noticed the fuse that is in the power centre is blown. is this the caus eof...


Replace the fuse and check the wire from the alternator to the fuse for damage. Also check the batterys before you change the fuse and after with the truck running with a volt meter. After the fuse replacement the battery should read 14 to 15 volts. Also check the fluid level in the battery. If the cells are low you can put distilled water in them to bring them back up to proper level. Hope this will help you.
