Car wont run unless jumper cables on Sign In

02 dodge ram 1500
180000 miles

Was driving and check guages came on, looked and battery guage was down to zero.

So we parked shut it off and it wouldnt start.
We jumped it and it started but soon as cables came off it died , jumped it again and gave it gas and took cables off again and as long as you had foot on gas and had the rpms up it stayed on, lights all very dim. But soon as you let off gas it dies.

Put in new altenator same thing.


Any ideas?

Check for power on the main terminal of the alternator with the KEY OFF. Let us know what you find.
