Hello I have a...

Hello I have a 1995 dodge 3500 when I drive it looses power and my rpm drops on my dash board also my voltage drops and starts draining my batteries then it comes back again but today it just wouldn't charge no more.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Yes that was the first thing i did its weird because it charges for a while then it drops again

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your B3500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I took it to a mechanic and he said that there was a wire touching the frame they said they had fixed it but after several days it started doing the same thing it would charge then drops back again on and off

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

That's the only problem it has charging issues

What size engine do you have? Are you saying that the alternator stopped charging? Are you looking for some possible causes?

Thank you for that information. If your saying that the alternator is not charging, then it could be a faulty alternator. You would need to start by checking all fuses and all inputs to the back of the alternator to ensure it has the correct powers and input from the main computer. If there are any codes in the computer or if the engine speed sensor is faulty, this engine could remain running and prevent the alternator from charging. However, if all checks out good, replace the alternator.

I changed that alternator 3 times thinking that they where bad had them tested they were good i also bought new batteries still doing the same

I see, thank you for that information. Check the power supplies to the alternator as it could be missing an input. That is likely why it is not charging. The black/gray wire (the big wire) is the main power feed. The dark blue wire is the power wire from the ASD relay. This should be hot with the engine running.

Also, dont forget to check for codes and the engine speed sensor signal.
