Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. Everytime the battery is jumped and the terminals are reversed, it will blow fuses on board the vehicle. It usually will blown many different fuses so be sure to check all of the fuses in the power distribution center under the hood and the fuse block inside the vehicle. I bet you will find one or more blown fuses. Good luck and let me know if you have any further questions.
Ok, no problem. I can help you pinpoint this problem. Start by checking for power on all of these circuits.
Ok, I have never seen an alternator charge at 44 volts. In addition if it does not have power going to it, it cannot charge. It is as simple as that. I suspect that the reading you got was incorrect. I would recommend to double check the voltage reading.
Anyway, yes, there is a fusible link between the battery and alternator. It is number A802. Here is a wiring diagram.
YES, once it is confirmed that the fusible link it is bad, it simply just gets replaced. YES, it is a very simple repair.
I am glad I can help!

The alternator needs battery voltage in order to work correctly
You would need a fusible link. I believe the sizes come in numbers. The wiring diagram says 8. Or you can remove the fusible link yourself and bring it to a parts department so they can match it up with a new one.
Hello! If the clock spring has been replaced, then I suspect that this is caused by a bad front control module.
Ok, then you will have to do some testing to pinpoint the problem. Do you need some help with this?
Ok, have you checked for codes in any of the modules on board the vehicle?
NO, only the check engine light will come on if there is a code in the PCM related to the emissions.
