Question about 1988 Dodge D-Series Pickups

1988 Dodge Ram 4x4 pickup

The transmission in my pickup seems to be having a problem. The battery and alternator are shot, but when I have the battery fully charged the transmission will work fine. Once the battery is drained and the motor is still running, the transmission will not longer work. Is there a component that uses electricity that can stop the transmission from running?

Dodge uses e solenoids to shift the trans.I am not sure on an 88 but this sounds like why it acts up when drained.
repair your charging system and should be fine

If you only have 5 volts you may have a bad battery or alternator. Or maybe a B+ (battery positive) wire short to ground. Check voltage engine running at the battery then alternator +. If your voltage is that low your TCM won't work.

The 318 was an engine fitted to all manner of vehicles dating back for quite a few years.A torqueflite sounds right although your trans woulld be different than sedan etc due to having a trransfer case to have to run.It may be easier to drop it off at auto trans specialist who can recondition the original one.At least it would save hassles from compatibility issues etc.For engine parts look under sedans that used the same engine.Asalvage yard would be a good place to look for the numbers you need .Are there no web sites that deal with your type of truck?4x4 clubs etc
