A lot of Chrysler products have the voltage regulator in the computer. I would check the charging system wiring first for poor connections and if nothing else is found there is nothing else for you to do but change it.

SOURCE: Guages malfunctioning

This problem maybe solved a couple ways. The first, (and cheapest) is check all your fuses. BMW's sometimes have multiple fuse boxes. In the dashboard behind the clove compartment, under the driver's side or passenger's side dash( near your knees or sides of your calfs), and in the engine compartment under the hood. Fuses are relatively cheap if you do it yourself and are available at nearly all auto parts stores and many WAL*MART'S or TARGET'S.

If you've checked all the fuses with either a fuse checker (about $5 at an auto parts store) or by pulling out and checking each fuse visually (making sure to be very careful not to touch the contacts or not getting shocked by disconnecting the positive battery cable very carefully), another problem may be in your ECU (the car's computer or brains).

If the fuses are fine, I'd take it to a dealer to have them look at the ECU, it is one of those parts that you can't really diagnose yourself with out the right software and computer connections (very expencive tools, around $500-$3,000 each) but many local mechanic shops and all BMW dealers will have these tools.

First check the fuses. If you have trouble finding the fuse boxes, look in the owner's manuals.

I hope I could help you fix the problem.

I had the same problem and ended up changing the oil pump and it did not fix it. (Peace of mind anyway and it was cheap) I replaced the pressure sensor (that happens to be tucked in deep between the back of the engine and firewall) and the pressure gauge worked just fine after that.

2000 Ram Van - is the voltage regulator located in the alternator


The voltage is regulated by the pcm (power control module ) on the truck. You cannot make any adjustments, removed or tampered with in any way to the pcm. Only a dodge dealer can check it out to see what the problem is with the pcm. Hope this will help you.

2001 ram would not start, but when started it ran rough & stalls


Your electronics won't work properly if voltage is low. Charge and load test battery to make sure it's good, then check charging system to make sure it's operating. Once that's squared away you can diagnose running problem if it is still there.
