Hello, all! I have a 2015 Ram 3500 CTD dually that I purchased new. I'd never had any issues with it until two weeks ago. The coolant tank cracked open on the interstate highway, leaving me stranded. After towing it to a local Ram dealer, they replaced the tank but then had issues with the primary 220a alternator failing. There's almost 300 of them back ordered nationwide, which tells me they know there's a problem. My problem is I'm 700 miles from home with no good prospects for this to end soon. Has anyone else had this issue? I'm open to any suggestions from y'all. Thanks for reading!

Yeah, Rock Auto has a number of options in stock for an online purchase including remanufactured Mopar alternators .


For immediate pickup, or at most a real short wait, AutoZone has a couple of options for the primary 220 amp alternator too, including a brand new (not remanufactured) Denso unit for about $300.


Pretty sure you could scare one up that's a direct fit pretty quickly at one of the parts houses in town, if you're in a town big enough to have a RAM dealership that is.

I'm betting you'd pay at least twice that for a dealer supplied part.

Of course, if it's a 100% warranty repair that might complicate things a bit.
