Battery replacement

Asked by Guru948CGJ Sep 19, 2020 at 02:00 PM about the 2005 Dodge RAM 1500 SLT Quad Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The check gauges light came on when I got in to start it and then noticed the
battery gauge needle was all the way to the L. Then noticed the old terminals
were badly corroded. So I replaced those. Along with a new battery. Now it wont
start. No click. No lights. Nothing.

Make sure the batt. terminals are tight , you may have toasted a fuse in the process , the starter may have gone bad by pure coincidence , you need a multi meter to test things and eliminate guess work .
