    Battery… start issues- water leak

    After 3 weeks in the shop, battery changes, alternator changes and no resolution they finally figured out the electrical issues were caused by water leaking from the back window and damaging systems. This issue was brought to attention and I think a lawsuit started … to no avail. This is a...

    Sunroof Not Working

    I recently replaced my battery in my 2019 Ram 1500. My sunshade for my sunroof was open when my battery died. Once I replaced the battery my sunroof would not open or close, nor would the sunshade. If anyone has this issue, hold the sunroof close button (not the sunshade button) for 10 seconds...

    Battery issue or no?

    Curious to hear your thoughts or wondering if anyone has had a similar experience. My truck is a 2021 1500 eTorque, it has 33,5xx miles on it and I’ve had it under 3 years. It’s still under factory warranty. I woke up this morning and my truck wouldn’t start. It tried cranking but the battery...

    New Battery, no power to any thing

    2019 1500 bighorn. Purchased a new battery, installed it, and drove it home, the truck sat for two days without moving and now it won't start, not a light, not a click. Brought the battery into the house, put it on the tester that I have and it is fully charged. Took it back out to the truck...

    Truck wont start - is it my battery sensor or the battery itself?

Finally realized my battery was dead, went to go charge it and noticed the wire that connects my battery sensor was cut clean in half (see photo). Disconnected the battery...

    Dead Battery…again (one year old)

    I had to replace my OEM battery last year When it gave up at just over 42k miles. I’ve had no issues or signs of anything wrong until this morning. Opened my door (in garage) and thought it strange- no lights of any kind. Nothing on dash. Nothing. Put foot on brake pedal and press ignition-...

    Idea for Dual Battery Setup

    I've been doing some research for a while regarding dual battery setups for my 2022 Ram 1500 Rebel and I've come to pretty much the same conclusion as everyone else here: aftermarket support is limited and there's very few ways to easily add a 2nd battery to the Ram without a lot of work like...

    2019 No Start but Battery Tests Okay.

    2019 1500 that after being parked for about an hour wouldn't start as if it had a dead battery. Accessory power came on like normal but the starter would click once and do nothing and a CEL came on. Used a jump pack and the truck started up just fine. I then drove home, turned the truck off...

    I have a take home work vehicle, so I don't get to drive my truck as often as I'd like to. I leave the dash came running since the truck stays outside. I was noticing that the camera shut off (power saving mode) after only 2 days or so. I used to trickle charge my Charger and that worked out...

    Lithium Battery Upgrade

    I’m trying to see if anyone has upgraded to a lithium battery under their hood. I’m going to finish my audio system upgrade and I plan to only run an XS Power lithium battery in place of the stock one. I already upgraded my alternator to a 220 amp factory one and with the battery I’m planning to...
