Battery cable arches when the truck is turned off, battery drains
2001 Dodge Ram 1500, the battery died but it was a new battery. Charged
the battery but when hooking up the cable there were a bunch of sparks so
something is shorting out. What could cause the arch? Are there any repeat
issues with these trucks that I could start with or how can I trace it down?
I'd go through the battery cables first, make sure all connections are good, cables aren't stretched, terminals, etc.
