Question about 1999 Dodge Durango
Before replacing the bad alternator, I tried jumping off the battery and aparently it was put in with the cables crossed. When I tried jumping it off it started smoking and I quickly grabbed all the cables off both batteries. I'm not sure but this may coincide with time blinking dash started. I know it blew the alternator fuse but that's fixed now. But what can I do about dash and what am I looking at???
The pcm is exposed to the battery at all times. You might see if you can get a used pcm at the salvage yard.

Testimonial: "Thanks very much I changed it and worked but now I have to change the battery because is not charging. Thanks again."
Hello. Try looking at the black earth that goes from the drivers door and into the A frame which is covered in a rubber sheath. The wire can break after opening and shutting the door over several years and as it's normally the thicker wire is more prone to break. Also check the other wires visually for any chaffing and tugging on each wire. If more electrical parts start failing, air con blowers etc it will be an earth. Hope this helps
