Most likely if the positive post is hot the battery dosent meet the CCA (cold cranking amps) required for the durango to start. Check your owners manual but using a battery that is too small (or not enough cca) will cause the positive post to heat up to the point that it will eventually melt off

Just replaced the transmission in the truck and everything will come on inside the truck but when you try to start the engine everything goes out.

Clean and retighten battery post connections, Check the negative grounding point-where the negative cable grounds to frame. And check the positive cable connection on the battery. Sounds like a loose connection somewhere.

Positive battery cable grounding at distribution box

Chevy trucks had a bad habit of shorting out near the starter. It shorts out because of the hot manifold melting the insulation. I moved my wire away from the starter and placed it on the battery positive post using a small extension. You might also have a bad pickup getting ready to go so be ready.

Truck will not start how can i tell if its a starter or selonoid

does it spin real fast without clanging and grinding against the flywheel? if so then its probably the solenoid bad. do you have to hit the starter with a hammer then it works? it is probably bad brushes or a worn motor. eather way i think you can only get a new starter and solenoid together not sold seperate. check for bad battery cables (loose).

Replaced fender silenoid and ignition switch under dash. Even after unhooking all terminals from starter, the positive cable from battery is bubbling hot. There is a faint clicking coming from under...

Tough one. First thing I would do is replace your cables, signal wire from ignition switch to solenoid included. Sounds like a short somewhere.

I would check your fusible links. The wires that they are on are what power everything in your cab. Usually they're attached to the starter, the starter solenoid, or the positive battery terminal. Hope this helps!
