Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi There,This is Clay, I'm a certified master automobile technician with 30 years of automotive repair and diagnostic experience.
From your description most likely the alternator has failed. P0562 sets for low battery voltage. The battery must be fully charged and tested good before the charging system can be property tested. When disconnecting a battery always remove the negative battery cable first and replace it last. Have the battery and charging system tested and let me know what all you find. Also let me know the VIN number for this vehicle.
I hope this information is helpful. If you have any questions let me know. You can reply back to me through this thread at any time.
Let me knowThanks.
As I said earlier have the battery fully charged and tested and have the charging system rechecked. Any time the battery voltage drops below 9.6 volts the computerized controls on this vehicle will not operate properly and will set codes and in your case not start at all. The battery must maintain above 9.6 volts at all times, even during a full load when cranking.
That's cool. I'll be here most all of the day.
