replace your altenator . the brushings are most likely bad and only making contact after you strick the alt. housing. it makes the brushing drop down to the armature.

Starts. but well die. if u let off gas


Sounds like an air control problem...can be just a clogged air filter, or vacumn line that has been knocked off...or the Idle Air control valve...this part is about $35. at your local parts store. Hope this helps.

2001 dodge ram 1500 , 5.9 , 2wd....batt. keeps going dead if not started every 8hrs or so....also the dome lights quit working about the same time this problem began....i chkd batt, alt. & grounds, all...


Since alot of people don't have all kinds of special tools, This is a way you can narrow it down and then go from there. Make sure all lights and power is turned off in the vehicle including the light under the hood if there is one.. disconnect the negative battery cable off the battery. take a test light and connect the aligator clip part of the test light to the part of the cable that connects to the battery. Then take the "pointy" part of the test light and touch it to the negative battery terminal. if it lights up, that means you have a draw. the brighter the light the bigger the draw is. Now keep in mind that if you have a clock or delayed interior lights it will show a draw. If you do have a pretty bright light and want to see the area that the draw is coming from begin by taking one fuse out at a time. If the light goes out or at least dims down alot, then you now know which circuit the draw is coming from. Now from there once you find which fuse it is then comes the task of finding out what that fuse covers and you can work on it from there. At this point you will have an idea of the area that is pulling power from your battery and may need to get a wiring diagram to locate where the draw is coming from. Worst case would be to pull that fuse out everytime you stop the car so it doesn't drain the battery while sitting until you can make the repair. I hope you were able to understand as sometimes I have a hard time explaining things. I hope this helps you narrow down your problem and good luck.

My gen light comes on, volts goes down to around 10, dash lights goes dim, and i had the alternator and battery tested and they were both fine. Any suggestions


Im not sure how you tested the alt. but its a good idea to take a volt meter and with the car running,check at the battery and the check at the back of the alternator on the big wire its the 12v feed from the battery,you should read the same voltage at the batt. example 14.3 vor so at the batt. and only10v or so at the alt or even zero V.then we can narrow it down a little to a possible open circuit between the batt. and alt.If you need any diagrams just let me know,hope it was helpful have a good day DB
