I have a 2000 Dodge Durango 5.2L for the past week the check gauges light came on and the voltage would drop to nothing but after alittle time 30min-2 hours it would be fine also start up was fine for the past week. Yesterday the light came back on and voltage dropped but I still made it to where I was going. When I went to restart the truck it was dead so I got jumped and got it checked out. The guy said my battery and alternator was reading fine battery 12v and alt 14.5v. The guy cleaned off the battery cables and the truck was fine and started fine this morning. After 5 minutes of driving the light came back on and the head lights started to dim but I still made it to where I was going. For fear of the truck not starting back up I left it running and was able to drive around for about 6 hours with no issue. When I got home I removed the positive cable from the battery and the truck remained running. Once I turned it off it wont restart. I havent tried to re jump it yet but I am sure it will.
