Question about 2002 Dodge Ram Maxi

1 Answer

I Just bought an 02 dodge ram 4.7 quad cab It had been parked for 6 months and I would turn it on and move it about 1 time a month. Until last month the truck was dead and I had to jumpstart it so I put the battery charger on it and after it reAd it was complete I tried to turn it on and it wouldn't. So I just jump started it again and drove it about 5 miles. When the check gauges light came on and I noticed the battery gauge was bottomed out to the right (H) I took it to advanced auto parts so they could check my battery and they said it was fine (although it doesn't seem to hold a charge ) and I asked to check the alternator and they sAid they couldn't get a reading. So I guess I'm back to square 1. I need to use the truck but I'm scared to fry it. I also noticed the hood light doesn't come on anymore after I jumpstart the truck and sometimes the lights on the dash flicker. Can someone please point Me in the rite direction ? Thanx

Kinda sounds like the problem I am having with my 5.9l. You may want to have the PCM checked, thats where the voltage regulator is located its not in the alternator. Also it may be a wire conector (white and green wires) located on the back top of your altornator the white wire seems to be my problem but trying to trace it back to the battery does not seem to be easy, I have appointment again tommorow to trace the wire back to the battery and will let you know what i find out...Unless you figured it out already. If so I could use the help too.

Dodge infinity

The Infinity system includes a CD/cassette receiver or a CD receiver in the dash, and a complement of 7 speakers: 3-1/2" speakers in the dash (left, right), a 2-1/2" center dash speaker, two 6"x9" woofers in the front doors, and two 5-1/4" speakers in the rear doors. You'll have to remove a section of the dash to install a new stereo, as you do with the non-Infinity system. You'll need a special adapter to connect a new car stereo to the Infinity factory amp

What speakers fit in my 02 Ram Quad Cab?

In the front door, that's a factory 6x9 speaker. There are some aftermarket 6x9s that will fit. In the rear deck, they use a speaker similar to a 6 1/2 but the bolt pattern doesn't match up, so there are a number of 6 1/2 and 6 3/4 sized speakers that will fit, but you'll have to redrill the mounting screw holes.

This is likely a short in the power distribution block located on your stearing column. There was a recall for this problem. Contact the dealer for information.
