O3 Ram Electrical Issues

Hello All, New to the forum and it’s my 1st so I’m excited to get involved and to share stories, and hope to help each other out.

I Have a 03 Ram 3500
The truck was parked for 8 mo in my garage. Both Batteries of course were dead, I boosted the left battery with a Schmacher Charger Boost Starter 200A.
Didn’t have enough to crank truck, so I isolated the batteries and trickle charged them. Now their fully charged.
Truck cranks and runs fine, however there’s a few issues
1) Viper 560XV Alarm Remote Start & Vallet Doesn’t Work. I checked all fuse 1) of the (2) 30A fuses for alarm was melted no damage to holder so I replaced fuse. Still doesn’t work, green light on dash is blinking and so is vallet antenna, but won’t lock unlock doors etc.
2) Headlights & Dome lights only work with vehicle running.
3) Factory Radio doesn’t work.
4) My Edge Juice Programer doesn’t work

I checked all the fuses in the fuse and relay box especially #51 the IOD Fuse and removed fuse box to look at wiring underneath, I can’t find anything.
Anyone else ever experience this issue?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome and the further down you draw those batteries down the higher the chance for more blown fuses in other circuits as well

I have heard that if both batteries arent at the same (maybe one has a dead cell) that it will cause electrical issues. I had electrical issues with mine and i had both batteries replaced and all of my issue went away. Have the batteries tested.

Thank You All
I haven’t had a lot of time to work in it lately. I did trickle charge both batteries and they’ve been tested.
I also tried pulling codes by way of my cluster and it will only allow me to get engine codes the method to obtain chassis codes will not work.
I’ve chased wires and haven’t found one yet.
Something has to be shorted or burnt up, with the doors closed and everything off the map lights are on very dim
Start the truck they go off and with door open the dome light works but otherwise won’t nor will the headlights until truck is running.
Starts up runs fun
Check engine light on
I have the codes written down, however I’m not at home, I’ll post later
Thanks
