96 Dodge ram 1500 5.9. After the GEN light turns on ill pull over and shut the truck off
and try to restart  it and it wont even turn over like if i lost all power. But the radio does
turn on. I tested the voltage on the battery and alternator and they both are good. I need
help finding the problem.
