Question about 2003 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

Why. This has happened twice in two weeks...get a siren type of whining sound that goes up and down with the pressing and releasing of the accelerator, it gets worse after a couple of days, then the battery light comes on. The first time the battery went completely dead, jumped it, charged it, was fine for a week and did it again. After the first time the battery light went off but the noise stayed. 2012 Durango. .???

SOURCE: A high pitched whining noise in the engine.

This Noise Description sounds Indicative of the Sounds that come from the Serpentine Belt Or Related parts such as Belt Idler Pulley or Belt Tentioner witch also has a Pulley, but if Tensioner itself is Literally BROKE I've replaced a number like this it will cause a Whining noise . Best case scenario its just the Belt, and if any of the other Problems turn out to be the Culprit the Belt MUST be Replaced Anyhow as Damage is Being caused By the Very Whining you hear.
PLEASE Spend the Extras $ for the BEST BELT as this Drives your Water pump, Alternator, A/C Compressor, Power Steering Pump All Crucial to Control of, easy Steering ,All Electrical-Power Distribution, The COOLING of Engine << VERY CRITICAL Component
The Pulleys usually have a more Hum type Whining. So I would say at Best The BELT , And WORST Belt Tentioner is Broke

SOURCE: 1999 dodge durango seems to sputter and buck

I agree with Krazy.... I own a 98' D. and generally keep it tuned up every 20-30k. You might also check the air filter as well. Regular service will keep your D on the road a long time.

If you have the cash, get a K&N filter for it. It will help improve your mileage slightly, and a little added acceleration never hurts. :)

Something fun:

I stage 2 chipped mine, put the K&N cold air intake kit (replaced the air box for the direct air tube), put stainless headers on, replaced the exhaust with 3" stainless high flow. I also replaced the coil, cap, and wires to MSD. The truck will still like the standard Champion plugs. All of this put my little 318 at 17MPG and over 350HP (365ish).

SOURCE: 2004 dodge durango won't start

If you haven't had an alternator / charging warning light on, i would suggest it's the battery, or dirty connections.

SOURCE: Lights started flickering battery light came on Dash lights and gages went crazy now wont start

Like you said, battery may be flat. You can check that with a multimeter.

Next check the alternator. Faulty alternator leads to uncharged battery.

Can altenator sound like bad power steering pump?


Many new power steering pumps will exhibit a whining noise for a time after installation. Some won't. Typically, they quiet down within 2-3 weeks once they break in a bit. If the new pump is doing its job and not leaking and the whine is not more like an ear-splitting shriek, just wait it out and see what happens.

Because the whine is still happening at high speed when your in neutral and low rpms it should not be engine or tranny related. I would start looking at wheel related issues. Hubs probably.

Siren nosie from engine


sounds like a power steering issue. They whine when the fluid is low. Check your fluid level. If it is low, you have a power steering leak. If its not that, describe the sound a little more and I'll try again.

Schematics for cjb100pd


Red is your positive, black is negative, both brown wires are to the speaker, and the yellow and green wire are for any emergency strobe lights you may want to hook up to it. P.S. if you wire up the brown wires and siren doesn't work make sure volume is turned up and try it again if it doesn't work then switch the brown wires around. Both toggle switches on the far right is to only turn the lights on. not the siren. Make sure the siren nob is turned all the way left thats off. The rest of the are just siren modes. The toggle switch all the way to the left. Push down horn comes on release it then horn goes off. Push up siren comes on for like 7-10 seconds and the goes off. Horn and your microphone always override any siren that may be on.

My audi a3 2.0 tdi has a siren noise when driving it.


It's most likely the turbocharger. We used to have an Audi with a turbo and it had a bit of a whine when accellerating. A slight siren type of noise is normal for it, but, if it's real loud then it should be checked.

Clutch Whine on Toyota 4WD Pickup


Bad bearings. Perhaps a throw out bearing. The pressure on it varies depending on whether your pushing on the pedal or not, and how much. If the noise occured only when the truck is moving, then I would say it is the input bearing. Changed alot of those years ago.

Theft alarm sounds w/o provocation


This sometimes can also be related to the internal batteries in the alarm ECU or alarm siren module going bad. If your handy the internal batteries can be replaced without buying a new replacement unit. Otherwise, the entire module must be replaced ($$$). Lastly, you can have a Saab indy or dealer disarm the theft alarm on the vehicle. You retain your keyless operation, but the alarm is not active. This is done in the programming and adjustment menus in the TWICE unit with the Saab Tech 2 computer.
