The voltage output is controlled by the engine computer, so you may want to have a shop or dealer take a look at it.
If the computer is the fault, the replacement may have to be programmed.

ABS and Brake warning lights intermittent may be caused by a failing wheel speed sensor(ABS Sensor) and /or its connector. You may have one on each wheel hub(4WD) or if 2WD, a sensor may be on the rear axle differential center.

I have a 2002 dodge ram 1500 w 176,000 + miles. When i come to a stop the check engine gauge comes on and the oil gauges immediatly drops. If I idle then the check engine light turns off. I done hear any...


Well Check your oil preshure with a proper gauge!
may have not sufisiant oil preshuire!!! or it might just be a faulty preshure senser!
Better that than defective oil pump! use caution as insefitient oil preshure will lead to ireprable engine dammage!!!!!

Have a good one .Bruce.

2001 dodge ram shuts off intermittently, restart ok no mil.


You are experiencing what is called a CCD Bus short in the instrument cluster circuit board. (chrysler calls it the "chrysler collision detection buss) it is how all of the controllers and modules communicate on that vehicle. Get a new one and you should have no problems, and used ones are a HUGE gamble. Other vehicles that are extremely bad for this are, caravans, neons, sebring coupe/conv, strates, and cirrus. It will also cause a no start condition that is EXTREMELY hard to catch.

Truck shuts off anfd restart right away, no trouble code.


First thing I'd check would be battery cables, at both ends for clean, good & tight. Does it ever do it while driving at highway speeds or just at slow speeds? Wet out, dry out?
