2001 Dodge intrepid. Battery light came on while driving. Got home turned car off, tried it and it was completely dead. put new battery and fuse in . still just clicking. what else could this be?


Pretty sure your alternator died.
Battery voltage with the car not running should be close to 12.5 volts on a fully charged battery. New batteries need to be charged before they are installed to keep a good alternator from melting down and dying.
With engine running the battery should read about 14.5 volts indicating your alternator is charging. At lower rpms battery voltage will still be above 12.5 volts with the engine running.
If you get it cranked and the battery does not read above 12.5 volts, you have a bad alternator.

All gauges went dead while driving, lights progressively dimmed and finally engine quit.


Your alternator died. You drove until your battery died also. You need a new alternator and a new battery. You might be able to get away with just charging your battery. Do Not jump start the vehicle and let the new alternator try to charge the old battery! Take the battery to a service station for testing and a charge. Install the new alternator and then install the charged battery not vice versa and you'll be fine.
