    Ecodiesel Alternator Output

    I've got a 2018 Ecodiesel Tradesman 4wd which I picked up Oct '22. It's been running fine (aside from a loss in mpg). I have noticed my EVIC was showing 13-14v on my battery, but since I installed my sound system it shows 13v consistently. Today I replaced my battery, it had the stock battery...

    How do I remove this stuck nut on battery connector?

I was wondering what would be the easiest way to get the nut off of the bolt or remove the bolt and nut...

    Weird Accidental Battery Jump

    So, my alternator died the other day during the middle of running around town. I was at a gas station and asked someone if they could help me with a jump. Someone helps me out and we get the jumper cables placed on each battery. I waited a few minutes before trying to start and it almost...

    Newbie Q re. Batteries

    I've got a 2019 Ram 1500. It failed to start the other day and I had a friend boost it and it has been fine for the last few days, but now I've got in my head that it likely needs to be replaced at some point. When researching a booster pack to buy as a just-in-case, I came across someone saying...

    Never had a problem with my '03 5.9 1500 starting before. Turn the key, it started. The other day I left the key in the "ON" position for 3 hours. Tried to start it and nothing. Tried to jump it and all it did was turn over but not start up. I purchased a new battery, installed it, turn the key...

    '18 ram 1500 check engine light

    I had to have my battery recharged at the local auto parts store and after putting it back into the truck my check engine light came on and won't go off. I will take it to the store to ask for some help but wanted to ask if anyone else ran into a similar problem?

    Truck won’t start unless jumper is connected.

    I have a 2012 ram 1500 4.7. The only thing I’ve done to it this year has been replaced the tail light bulbs with LED bulbs. This issue has slowly been getting worst. At first I could run the fuel pump a few times prior to trying to start and it would always fire up. It has gotten to the point...
