Question about 2002 Dodge Durango
My dad has had a 2001 Dodge Durango SLT for one year, and the interior lights flicker when the car is off, and the power locks don't work, and at night when driving the head lights flicker or don't work at all. There is a Electrical Recall, but he also gave our neighbor a jump-start. Is that the reason or is it a loose connection on the battery? We don't know
The proper way to jump start is to start the car that is doing the boosting first then connect the cables, making sure that the polarities are right, negative to negative and vice versa. The reason for this is that while cranking the car doing the boosting, the the car with the low battery suffer a significant voltage spike since the sudden draw of current will pull the voltage down on a weak battery, and when the car do start, the voltage suddenly goes up, adding to that, the alternator bring the voltage even higher. Electronic circuits are sesitive to these voltage spikes. Still I doubt your problem is caused by these unless theses things you are having problems with are controlled electronic,.
