My 2003 ram 1500
has a small red light that just began flashing. had a dead battery
, so I thought, several weeks ago. replaced it with a new red top optima. fine till now
JA: How old is the battery? Have you checked the battery gauge on the dash?
Customer: battery is three weeks old. have no power trying to turn it over. battery charger hooked up 2+ hrs ago still nothing. charger cycles on and off.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: tried only hooking up charger and check online figuring others have had same/similar problem
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: 1st time I've had a problem with the truck. Has about 45k. mi on it. hooked up code reader says that it's vin locked
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Dodge Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
