HELP! No start. Electrical Problems? 2014 Promaster 2500
Hello everyone. I just joined this forum seeking some help with my van, a 2014 Promaster 2400 Diesel 136".
Here goes! So I've had starting issues on and off, and have usually been able to either jump off the van, charge the battery and clear the engine codes in order for it to start, but now nothing is working.(yes i took it to the dealer and they told me everything was fine) NOW, It doesn't turn over, and I get quite a few error codes. (Loss of trans pump prime, glow plugs and glow plugs circuit, oil pressure sensor) Also to note...the battery is not being charged when the van is running...the van runs fine when its driving around, but the battery will be drained dead after a long drive. I replaced the battery and had the same issue with the new one...then I had the alternator tested at auto zone...and the technician says it reads that I have a bad voltage regulator in the alternator. After doing a lot of research here and there...it sounds like a lot of people have run into similar problems and it ended up being a bad ground somewhere...So I've already replaced the main ground battery strap... Any other thought? Where are the other grounds I should be checking? Do you think a non dealer auto shop would be able to find them? I'd really like to avoid the dealership at all costs ($$$) Any help and or advice will be greatly appreciated...THANKS!
