Customer Question
Hi Pearl, ive got...

Hi Pearl, ive got an 07 3500 megacab with 5.9 cummins. while disconnecting my snowplow the engine quit and all the dash indicator lights started flashing. by the time I got the hood open I could smell burning wiring. upon further checking found the fusible link from the passenger side battery to the solenoid attached to the battery tray burnt.changed the fusible link but all ive got is clicking coming from the solenoid and dash lights all .flashing .could the solenoid be burnt too and is it a special type of solenoid?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

Yes checked all fuses and they are ok

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 3500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes unfortunately the nearest dodge dealer is about a 100 miles away so I'm kind of in the dark on this. got a buddy to help manually disconnect the plow and wiring harness . I changed the solenoid with one I bought at a local garage which was somewhat different from the doge one and just got clicking from that one also

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

Any advice would be much appreciated because I'm not sure what to try next. I'm guessing the plow connector shorted out when I dropped the plow because there was ice in it?

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT.

I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
