Won't crank when cold outside - new batt, new starter, same problem
I have this 2000 Durango that developed a maddening problem. When cold outside (32F-50F) it will not crank. When turning the key to crank, the starter does not make any sound, but the lights on the RADIO go dim. The HEADLIGHTS do NOT go dim.
I replaced the battery and the starter, same issue.
Ground connections seem tight.
Any thoughts on this ?
Also, when very wet outside (after a heavy rain) it would crank but not start. Fuel pump runs, smells flooded.
Could this be related ? Bad coil or wires ?
Sounds like a wiring/connection issue. Check all your cables and wires for corrosion and fraying. Check the wiring around the steering column and ignition switch? You might have to do some probing.
