  1. 98.5-02 Powertrain
    I have a 1998.5 24v 5.9 cummins 5 speed manual. Last night I took it to the store which is about a mile or 2 from the house. Ran fine, on the way back I noticed through gears it was sluggish like going in and out not as the clutch slipping but I could feel the truck jerking and having a little...

    For the past year I havent been driving my truck as much as I usually would, I purchased a daily driver and use that most of the time but I make sure to start my truck up 1x every week/every other week and run for 15-30 mins to keep the batteries charged. Since it started getting colder my...

    As a reminder cold weather is coming and it’s when we are most vulnerable. Between fuel gelling and having 12 volts to pre-heat the block for starting. Just last year I was stranded in a bad situation so be sure to check the condition of your batteries.

    Alright ya'll I need some experts advice and tips here. Here's the **** up, I replaced the alternator in my service truck and like a moron I touched my booster pack cables to my driver side battery backwards for a quarter second. In my defense, it was 5am on nightshift and I'm on day 22...

    Hello everyone. Getting frustrated trying to figure this out and have look at other threads. 2006 ram 3500 diesel. Went outside to start it a week ago and nothing not even a click. Things that I have done since. I put a new starter in it because it was old anyway. Tested the starter relay...

    I have a 01 24v Cummins And a couple of weeks ago I put a new fender on the passenger side of the truck and after, sometimes it would start other times it wouldn't and sound like dead batteries. I figured out I didn't connect all of the ground wires back. Well 4 days ago I turned my truck...
  7. 3rd Gen. Powertrain
    2003 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9. I recently replaced both batteries with optima red tops after getting a P2509 code and having trouble with the starting after sitting overnight. I believe the problem was more related to corrosion and a bad connection, but the batteries were 5 years old so I went...
  8. 3rd Gen. Performance Parts Discussion
    I’ve got an 06 5.9 and starting to work on her. My brother and I were discussing relocating both batteries to the tool box in the bed. We’ve got plenty of cable and everything, my question is he was telling me about someone that made a abs module bracket. Does anyone have any idea where I could...
  9. 3rd Gen. Non-Powertrain
    Hello all. I'm brand new to the forum, but have owned my 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins Mega Cab for fifteen years with very few problems. Recently, I have had some electrical issues. Several months ago I replaced both of the batteries. Intermittently, I don't have enough power to start the engine...
  10. 98.5-02 Non-Powertrain
    98.5 3500. Very cold here, about -30. Don’t have a block heater yet. Cycled my grid heater 3 times, tried to start it and starter cranks for about 10 seconds before it dies down slower and slower. Usually will jump but wouldn’t jump today. Brand new batteries, all good connections. Never an...
  11. 2010-2012 Non-Powertrain
    I am wanting to clean up an the wires in the truck and wanting to install a plug in the bumper plug for the block heater and maybe a battery float charger. I have a 12 and wondering if anyone had a no drill option? I've seen several outside rated plugs that would work but I wonder about the...

    Hi all, I’m turning to the knowledgeable people on the internet after my own troubleshooting is coming up short. A few weeks ago I had driven my truck on a 3 hour trip with no issues and no warning lights. The next morning I go to start the truck and my dash lights up with a service 4wd...

    Hey All - I'm new to the Cummins 6.7L engine and Ram 2500. Just bought a '17 Tradesman 4x4 with 82k miles. I'm looking to replace the batteries. Any recommendation on size, make, model, etc?
  14. 2013-2018 Non-Powertrain
    Started the truck this morning all the dash lights started flashing. Turned it off, tried to start again, flashing lights no start at all. Unhooked the batteries for a little bit, then started up fine. Is this a sign of a bad battery? Any ideas?
