Question about 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab
It could be from a few issues. It definitely has to do with either the generator not working properly (recharging the battery, or a faulty battery not holding a charge. If you happen to have a voltmeter, you can test the battery voltage before you start the truck (should be about 12 volts), then test it while the truck is running (should be reading around 14 volts) this will mean the generator is charging the battery. Most batteries last about 3-5 years on average. If the voltage is not above 12 volts when the truck is running, the generator is bad, and you could get stuck with a dead battery.
