  1. B-Series Dodge Vans 1971 - 2003 Articles
    Hey everyone! So I just recently purchased at 94 B250 and it was running and driving great and I had left it parked for a little while I dealt with moving and had hung out in it and used the lights and drained the battery. Went to go and jumpstart it thinking it was a dead battery. At first we...
  2. Dodge B-Series Vans 1971 - 2003
    Has anyone done all the research to find the largest AGM battery to shoe-horn (even if it means cutting the tray) into a B3500 Van? We use our van as a site vehicle and frequently run lights and sometimes an inverter for sound system or other electronics and we're in Michigan, so cold start is...
  3. Dodge B-Series Vans 1971 - 2003
    I usually operate off grid but for the first time I am hooking into shore power for part of the winter. Problem is, when I plug into 30amp hookup the only thing it powers are my AC plugs. My lights, my furnace... It's all still pulling from my house battery. Is there a step I'm missing? Is there...
  4. 2G Dodge RAM - Drivetrain Talk
    I bought a used Dodge Journey 2011 about three months ago. It has two problems. When the engine heats up the oil sensor light starts flashing when idling or when the rpm is below 1K. I got it serviced couple of weeks ago and oil levels are also good. And the car battery drains in two days if...
  5. Dodge Ram Truck 3rd Gen (02 – 08) Forums
    Never had a problem with my '03 5.9 1500 starting before. Turn the key, it started. The other day I left the key in the "ON" position for 3 hours. Tried to start it and nothing. Tried to jump it and all it did was turn over but not start up. I purchased a new battery, installed it, turn the key...
  6. 3rd Gen Caravan Talk (96-00)
    So I've been working on this 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.0. I'm not the best mech out there so bear with me. I changed the belts and put a new battery in, but the battery continued to die. Changed the alternator out and there's now a large enough spark to melt small bits of the battery's...
  7. Dodge Ram Truck 3rd Gen (02 – 08) Forums
    I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 with 130,000 miles. I have not had any problems until fairly recently when in August of 2019 I had a battery problem where my truck would need to be jump started anytime that I didn't start it every day. Since August of 2019 I have had 5 batteries in my truck. I...
  8. Dodge Ram Truck 1st Gen (88 - 93) Forum
    I understand a traditional battery that is fully charged should be 12.6v I know when the vehicle is running you should have around 14.6 volts. My question is assuming all is working properly and the battery is fully charged, when the engine is running does the field wires sense the battery is...
  9. 3rd Gen Caravan Talk (96-00)
    I have a 1997 Grand Caravan V6 3.8L. The charging system is dead. Initially I pulled out the alternator, because it died while I was driving it home at night with the headlights on, and took it to AutoZone to have it tested, it tested good. The next thing I did was take the battery out to...
  10. Dodge Caliber - General Talk
    Hello all! I have a 2008 Caliber 2.4 that was stored for a year and a half. I tried to jump the old battery. It wouldn't hold a charge but everything was fine while hooked up to the donor car... lights, radio, all electrical was good... just wouldn't hold a charge. When I install the new...

    I bought a dodge dakota (2006) a little over a month ago and over the past couple weeks my battery has been dying. I've replaced it twice and I finally took it to Autozone yesterday to see if it was something else. They checked the battery, alternator, and starter. they sad they're all fine but...

  14. 5th Gen Caravan Talk (08-20)
    I have a 2009 Grand Caravan that is having a battery problem. When the car sits for 3-4 days I will have a dead battery.
