Battery gauge goes from Low to High then check gauge light comes on. Lights are dimming some but no problem with car starting. Dodge Durango SXT 2002 V8. Could this be a bad battery?

The first thing that happens is the interior lights start to flash when I open the door
then the fob quits working, service 4x4 lite comes on, the intermittent wipers won't
work and head lights won't work. If i take off the battery neg cable and then put
it back every things work again. No check engine light

I've been into the fuse box at left end of dashboard - but where is the one under the hood at?

I currently have it taped shut but it still slowly falls down - have to lift by hand and slide up into place. Is there an easy way to get into the door panel to resolve inside issue?

This issue happens whenever I get to a certain speed or I have to kind of ride my brakes because of rush hour traffic.

I checked the fuse, it's good. I checked the bulbs and they are fine because all other functions work. I then replaced the brake light switch (twice) because I was convinced that was the issue. I will check the continuity later this evening when my electrician buddy comes by, but is there anything else this could be? I heard it's possible the computer needed to be reset so I disconnected the battery. didn't do the trick. Any suggestions are appreciated!

doors try to lock every second runs down battery

Truck died while driving, has power everywhere except gauges do not work. Now alarm wont shut off with clicker???

happens when you tilt the steering wheel. have had this checked several times and even had the steering column replaced. problem is as bad as ever. any ideas???

I had a heater hose go out which caused my Durango to overheat. I stopped it immediately, repaired the problem and went on my way. I noticed shortly after that there was a couple times I accelerated and it tried to stall out, but then kicked in after about a second or so and continued on as normal. When I got a couple blocks from my home, I tested the acceleration again, but this time when I hit the gas I heard a loud "pop" sound, like a loud backfire, the engine started to idle very rough, I had no power, but was able to coast to my house. I tested it with a OBD II scanner and it gave me codes P0300, P0302, and P0308. I know these are misfire codes for General, cylinder 2 and 8. I replaced the Crankshaft Position Sensor, reset the PCM(I think) but still no luck. I tried re-reading the vehicle with my scanner again, but it keeps saying PASS No Error Codes. I also read the vehicle with the manual way and all it tells me is Pdone. No Errors. I am at a loss of what could be causing this. Help Please!
