Customer Question
Passenger side batteries is...

Passenger side batteries is new and boiling over

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

Gage check light came on and I looked at the new battery and saw acid coming from top. Could this be because of the wire conections

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Dodge?

2005 Dodge Ram Mega cab 4wheel

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing so far bit I will be fixing since I am traveling

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, I am thinking Alt but checking thing out first

I know exactly what this is. The battery cable connections between the driver's side battery and passenger side battery is bad. This causes an imbalance of voltage between the two batteries. Clean and or replace that large battery cable between the two positive battery terminals. Also clean the ground cable connections. I am a shop foreman at a Dodge dealer and kmow 1st hand that this will fix it.Chris
