If it has an amp meter in the dash,could be the problem.
All the power runs thru the gauge ,if it burns out you have nothing.
Thinking a jumper wire between batt + to the big + post on the alternator will make it run,if it does the amp meter is at fault.

Dash light fuse dodge sportsman 1978 location

whoa. A 37 year old Dodge. Would that be with the old style Buss brand fuses with the glass cylinder between two metal ends? The fuse panel location should be under the driver's dash. I don't think dodge was too different in locating most items, and that's where it usually was found. Don't be surprised by the small number of fuses, my '79 Datsun has only 5 or 6 fuses on the whole truck.

Why haven't you bought an automotive test light to check your fuses? You don't have to pull them out to inspect, a test light will tell you immediately if the fuse is good or bad while still inserted. Plus you can tell if the fuse is getting power as it should when checking circuits.
To test any fuse with a test light, clip the tester lead to a good ground screw or metal bracket- be absolutely sure the ground is good or the test is invalid-now for a dash light, turn the head/park light switch on. Now one end of the fuse will be hot- use the test light probe to touch one end of the fuse or just the metal clip surrounding the fuse- your test light should light up. Test the fuse by touching the other end. If fuse is good tester will light on both ends of fuse. If fuse is blown, tester will only light on one end of the fuse. If your wiring to the fuse panel is good, you know some of the wires to it will be hot. Some are hot all time (brake lights, horn), some are hot with key in on, run, or start. You just follow the circuit that way, and use a test light or voltmeter, you can't go wrong...well, you can, but you can also learn from your mistakes. Incidentally, you can test all the modern fuses for today's cars in the same way. All of these modern molded fuses have slots called test ports on them, one at each end of the tops of the fuse. No more pulling them out to eyeball, whoops.

Is a 2000 5.9 liter engine Dodge Durango transmission compatible with 1997 5.2 liter engine dodge 1500 pickup

Absolutely not. Engines have to be the same type to start. Transmission have to match also. I believe yours would start at 99 or 2000 and go up to 2003. Junk yard will tell you. Dodge did a swap up in 99. Some 99 transmissions would work in 2000's, but a lot of them didn't.

if nothing was on then it should be fine. lights don;t care .only electronics like radio alternator and if the battery is good then the fusible link should be checked .

I just put in a brand new battery and it won't start. Absolutely NOTHING! Any quick suggestions? Fuse?

It can be the fuse link from the battery which could have failed and so will not power the igntion circuit. Please use a multimeter to trace the +12 to the fuse box and from the Ignition circuit.
Make sure the GROUND connection is good from the battery to the chassis.

No Power to Coil.On 99 Intrepid

If no power is present at the connector, check for a blown fuse, or fusible link at the power distribution block (fuse block). Fuse locations are outlined in your service manual and owner's manual, but it is a good idea to check all the fuses in the power distribution block.
