My 1991 Dodge ram 1500 ,318 motor alternator is new. Everything grounded Good. But not charging battery. And when I jumpstart it take the jumpin cables off test the battery and alternator with voltage...


My first point to check would be the fusible link for it. Check the wiring diagram in the shop manual and its location in your year/model/VIN and check it. Suspect it was fried by inadvertently arcing at alternator out put lug when servicing alternator.

Check gauge/low voltage


May or may not throw a code, have you had the alternator checked, this sounds like a bad alternator and also you charged the batteries but have them tested also, this sounds like an alternator problem.

Have you battery checked to make sure it is not dead. It can still have enough juice for the dome lights but not the turn over. Make sure to charge your battery fully before having it checked. If the battery checks out good then you should have the alternator checked. It is possible that it is on its last leg and not effectively charging your battery.

What wrong when the battery light come on and stay on then keep driving and the car radio blink and the car cut off


Sounds like your battery died due to your alternator failing. The battery light most likely came on when the Alternator wasn't giving enough juice to keep the battery charged. Once the battery drained, your radio cut off and then your ignition.

I have a 1991 dodge ram b250 replaced battery alternator check fuses checked wires an still no juice from alt can my ecm be bad


if your not getting juice from your alternator then it is bad the ecm doesnt supply the alt with juice the alt produces its own so if its not producing the correct voltage it will need replaced. it should make 14.75 volts in order to keep your battery fully charged ang to keep up with all running accesories. it should put out no less than 13 volts

1986 dodge ram will start but motor dies when headlights are turned on


Your alternator is not putting out enough juice. Before you replace it, take a few minutes to make sure the belt is tightand clean up your contacts. Remove the wire ends, including battery cables, and clean them up with some emery cloth or fine sandpaper and reinstall. Your alternator grounds to the motor so don't forget to clean that too. Run the truck for 5 or 10 minutes to charge the battery a little an d see if that makes a difference. If it doesn't you need a new alternator.
If you have a multimeter you can test it yourself, the output should be at least 12.5 volts up to 13.5 or 14. Below 12 is insufficient. Hopw this helps.

2000 Dodge Ram cargo van trouble starting and once started will not keep running tried jumping battery and no change what should we try next?


Sounds like the alternator is bad (not charging). If your battery is good/charged it should run until the battery is drained. If the battery is bad/not charged the car will die as soon as the cables are taken off as there is not enough juice to run the ignition system. If the alternator is good (but battery bad) the car would still run as the alternator makes power to run the car but becasue the battery is dead/drained there is no power to start the car (hense needing the jump). Have the alternator/charging system tested
