#88 of 93 2001 Dodge Durango acts like low battery when starting
Aug 15, 2013 (8:00 am)
My 2001 Durango acts like the battery is low when starting the truck and then starts. The battery, alternator and charging system check out good at the autoparts store. One time the vehical would not start at all and the solenoid just clicked...i.e. like a dead/low battery, then an hour later started and had trouble running. Went straight to the auto parts store for a new battery and all checked out fine. Could it be a weak starter?

I have a 2000 Dodge durango and for some reason the engine will not shift correctly pass 40 mph...it feels like it is always pulling. I got a code reading from Advance Auto and it said that I need a speed sensor but when I took the SUV to a couple of transmission mechanics they said I need a whole new transmission!! Also, here lately I have a hard time trying to start my vehicle. It clicks for about 10- 15 mins before it turns over...again Advance showed that there was nothing wrong with the solenoid, starter, alternator or battery. Anyone having the same problems...if so, what has been your remedy? I am trying to see if the problems that I am having are worth fixing or should I just trade the darn thing in for something else before I have to spend any more major money!
#90 of 93 Getting frustrated

Ok, so I have a 2004 dodge Durango. I keep up with the maintenance but I keep having this issue where my battery dies. At first it was the alternator. So I got that replaced. So I started to notice that my radio would stay on once I pulled the key out and lock the door. At first I didn't pay it any mind until I go to start my truck and it wouldn't turn over. So after I got a jump I ran the car for 15 minutes and drove it around. So I started to take the face off the radio. That seemed to work for a while. Now I am having the same issue and I don't know what to do. Can someone please help me???? I am beyond frustrated and I have put well over 6000 dollars into this vehicle. But now it seems to be for nothing..... Help please!!!!!!!

When I had a similar problem with my 1998 Durango, it turned out to be my rear wiper- even though it was off, it never actually shut itself off. We had to take apart the interior panel of the hatch, and just disconnected the wiper. So we don't have a rear wiper now, but we haven't had a battery problem since.
Hope that helps.

You have an electrical short somewhere in the vehicle. Bring it to a shop that is skilled in diagnosing electrical problems. It should not cost you more than $100 ti diagnose (not repair) the problem. If they try to charge you more than that to diagnose go to another shop. Good Luck!
