Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site, do you have a multi meter?
how do you know that the battery is good? if the battery is good, you should be able to start the car. the alternator has nothing to do with starting the car .
when you replaced the battery yesterday, were you able to start the vehicle then?
and when you were driving it, at anytime did the red battery light come on before it died?
no, its the alternator but check the connections at the alternator first before we condemn it. in the meantime ill get you instructions on replacement
what engine is in that
6 cylinder or 8 cylinder?
it makes a difference on procedure.
