Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD
Battery died recharged and holding well. Acting like starter is dead.. it is not. Alarm sounds as soon as i try to turn on or open door with key in ignition. I know its a computer reset but undoing the battery as suggested is not working...Any other suggestions

3 times ..turn the key > off on off on off on .> then count the flashes of the light , flash flash pause flash flash , = 22 , pause , i think when you see 5 flashes pause 5 flashes , that means end of list . there might be multiple codes , have a note pad , you have to do it twice to be sure of the code(s) .

do not suspect computer.
1 the new battery may not have been charged from the store so would need to be charged before use, charge new battery on a charging set and see if this resoves the problem. *or use slave leads and start from a second vehicle)
2 your alternator may not be charging the battery so after a while it will just die. use a volt meter and check that volage is increaseing to your battery when the engine is running.
if not suspect alterantor defective and may need replacement.
