It sounds like you are not getting spark from the spark plugs. The ignition coil controls the spark. The crank sensor also controls the spark. If I had to guess I would say test or replace the ignition coil. If tests okay i would do a resistance test on crank sensor. But at my shop I have seen many Ignition coils go bad.

2001 dodge Durango slt 5.9 liter replaced battery and now it won't start.

Are you saying it cranks good or won't start? If so, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.
With engine cranking or running, I can't hear the fuel pump. The initial prime may turn it on for a second or so.
The battery connections are all good, both ends? Battery has a full charge? Some vehicles when battery voltage is lost, some modules may have to be reprogrammed. I can't help you with that? You may need a manufacturer specific scanner that can communicate with whatever module.
One way to tell if computer is awake, turn on the key, Hopefully any sensor that uses a ref voltage, it goes hot with key on, so check ref voltage.

All of the sudden my Durango wont start. The starter engages, it just sounds like its not getting any Gas to where it needs to go to get It to fire up. We tried tapping on the starter to see if thAt wOuLD...

Don't tap on the starter-it is engaging. Tap on the bottom of the gas tank-if your fuel pump is failing, sometimes you can get it to work a time or two by banging on the gas tank. If it works, you will need a new fuel pump.

You should hear the pump come on for about 2 seconds, by turning the key to on. It should come on to pressurize the system. If you don't hear it buzz on for a short time with key on, you will need to check out the pump.
Sudden no starts like yours are usually gas or ignition related. Check for gas and check for spark.

The starter is spinning the engine over , but won't start an run ! The starter is cranking the engine ,but the engine doesn't start an run . OK ,enough of that > When it won't start (run ) what's missing ? Ignition spark or no fuel pressure ? Video's on youtube showing how to test for these . Has to be one or the other .

My dodge durango(2003) shut off on me when i was driving yesterday. Engine cranks but doesn't start. Relays and fuses are all good. any ideas?

It sounds like the fuel pump has failed, I'd start by checking the fuel pressure. Turn everything off so you hear whether on not the fuel pump runs when you turn the key to "on". The pump should run for 3-5 seconds and the stop and it won't start running again, until you turn the key to "start".
