    And we are back to square one again. For the last couple weeks the wife has been having the Durango voltage fluctuate from 14.3v to 10.1v when at a stop, in gear. Driving down the road it’s 14v. Unless you throw on the blower motors to high.

    Today we had major issues and i checked the voltage at the battery terminals, 12.8v. Check the voltage at the “jump start” posts, 12.8v. Check the positive post at the fuse box and grounded at the “jump post”, 10v. Start the Durango and voltage at the battery goes to 16.7v, voltage at the fuse box is 10, 9, 8, 7, 6 dropping. Electronics go nuts, engine sputters and shuts off. You cant even shut off the engine.

    Took batteries out, load tested at Advance Auto and both pass. Also has more CCA than listed.

    Towed it to Dodge and wrote everything down for them. Here we go, round three. Service manager says, “ probably the alternator”. I said good, you guys put a new one on last December. He gives me a funny look and says “probably a bad cell in the battery”. Yeah, that’s new too.

    Dodge called and said your alternator is bad and needs to be replaced. Will be $578 installed. I don’t think so, you put one in last December...

    Has no one else run into this issue?

    Update. Dodge replaced the alternator again and it is putting out a steady 13.5v. The car electronics are seeing 20v. After more testing the PCM has failed.

    That replacement alternator should have a 12/12 warranty, so that should be a gratis repair. as long as you fall within the 12/12 spec. The PCM does control the alternator, and it has an 8/80 Federal warranty. Hopefully they will take care of you for little to no cost.

    Yes they replaced everything for no cost. Initially i was surprised because you just replaced the alternator and you already forgot? However, everything is working great. I am glad this fell under the factory warranty. Aftermarket doesn’t cover electrical.
