I would change the coolant temp sensor if it's not too expensive at the auto parst store, or unplug it and drive around to see if the boost works normally. Be sure to clear the codes that may light up on your dashboard after either solution.

I had the same problem on a 94 dodge with the cummins. It seems the crank sensor that reads from a notch on the harmonic balancer was the problem Without this sensor reading that the engine is running the alternator wont charge. Possibly the same problem with yours

Dodge 3500 diesel trouble codes


the code is for low turbo boost which may have been caused by the snow.if you arent detecting any power problems try unhooking the batteries for about 10 min to clear the codes or take it to like and auto zone or advanced auto and have them clear the codes. if the light comes back on you may need to take it to the dealer because it may have a bad turbo ..a bad sensor ...or and air leak in the charge air system

Loss of power


This sounds like a boost leak, the 12 valves are pretty bullet proof.

Make sure that all the hoses are on (not partially slipped off) between the turbo and the engine. There are 4 hoses which gives 8 places for boost leaks. Look closely, they can be tricky to find. This will usually also cause more black smoke when under load.

If you live in the rust belt, take a look at the intercooler, they can corrode through. A boost gauge connected to the intake plenum of the engine make a real good diagnostic tool for this.

Can you hear the turbo spooling up? If yes do you hear an air noise... could a number of things from bad turbo, air to air leaking or its piping, or something simple like a clogged fuel or air filter.
