Electrical Shutdown Today


07 6.0L recently Bullet Proofed. Driving this morning and noticed all the lights (dash, headlights) seemed dim. About 5 minutes into trip, the lights got a lot dimmer, the ABS light came on, then the battery light, then the wrench light. Lights almost completely went out and the truck started sputtering (no fuel being delivered?). About 3 more minutes the lights (all of them, dash headlights, radio etc) went dead and the truck shut down. Dash lights were flashing in and out, acting like a short. It took a jump and fired again only to shut back down when I unhooked the cables. Tried starting one last time (without cables) and it ticked like the battery is dead. Am I looking at A) Battery, B) Alternator, C) Wiring Harness, D) Get a new truck!

I upgraded to a 135 amp alternator for what the wiring could handle and kept the original for a spare sounds like your alternators is out, if you have a few miles on it you could maybe replace the pulley bearings so you won't have anymore problems !!!

Individually charge the batteries. Then individually have them load tested.

Test the alternator too. When the alternator stops charging you run off the batteries until they are dead and then you are beyond what a jump can do, unless you unhook the cables from the batteries and jump it that way, but if the alternator isn't charging you won't be able to unhook from the other vehicle and go anywhere. It does sound like an alternator, but testing stuff is more or less free and parts cost money, so I always like to be sure.
