Check your Belt Tensioner. If it is not keeping the Belt Tight Enough you will have the Above Problem.

    It is Definately the Belt and Tensioner causing these Problems. Is the High beam light on even when the Lights are Off????

    Replace that Tensioner and see if it is not a Fault caused by Low Voltage from the Battery and Alternator. That could be the "Dummy" Light for the Codes from the Computer.

2001 dodge durango check gage light came on, battery gage when to low. Do I need a new battery?

Have your charging system checked. It could be a bad battery not taking a charge, or it could be an alternator problem, not putting out sufficient power.

Have a 2001 dodge durango replaced battery and new alternator.... when you first start the car the alternator gage will jump up to about 12amp then will just drop down to wear it wont charge

I suggest that the problem is not in the alternators but in the battery . Dirty battery posts and terminals will do this so ensure that they are shiny clean and tight. Next have the battery load tested for a faulty cell or broken cell bridge.

I have a 2001 dodge Durango 4.7 v8. The battery died and the alternator tested bad. I replaced both the battery and alternator. The new alternator within a week stopped working and I replaced it. It was...

it is the regulator that is the problem
a battery will need 14.5-14.8 volts dc to charge and a fully charged battery in good condition will read 13.2 on a multimeter
as you say the regulator is in the ecm so get a good replacement from the wreckers or junk yard or get a reconditioned ecm for those shops that can recondition/exchange

Same symptoms, sulfur smell + battery problems on 2001 Durango

possible voltage regulator is faulty (in the alternator) and boiling the battery. Since the battery has sulphuric acid in it, that would give you the sulpher smell. Get your mechanic to test the voltage/amps output from the alternator.

Regulator problems

The computer regulator is very hard to burn out. Just make sure all your battery cables are good and the alternator fuse is good. There is a fuse.
