Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome!My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question.
Your saying that the interior and exterior lights do not work?
No brake lights or dome lights?
NO power anywhere at all correct?
What is the battery voltage at?
And what about voltage on fuse number 1 under the hood?
No. This is fuse number 1. It is a 50 amp fuse. This fuse needs to have FULL battery voltage on it. In fact, fuses 1 through 6 all need to have voltage on them. If not, you have a faulty connection between the battery and power distribution center or a faulty power distribution center.
based on my experience dealing with customers, yes it is common because they jump the battery backwards causing main fuses to blow or they do not tighten up the battery cables all of the way. You have two batteries right? Just one of the connections at the one battery can cause this.
If there is full battery voltage at both batteries but nothing to the power distribution center, it can only be three things. Bad connection, bad main power wire (going to PDC) or a faulty power distribution center. It is as simple as that.
Keep in mind this is a "starting point". Further testing may need to be done to pinpoint which is the root cause of this condition (I can help with that as needed). My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5-star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today.

The power distribution center is the fuse box or the component that contains all of the fuses under the hood. Just follow the main positive battery cable to the fuse box. That is the PDC.
You can also check all of the main grounds, but if you did not remove them when the alternator was replaced, they should not be an issue.
I am glad I can answer all of your questions.
