Great post! Very complete! Well it is clear you need a new battery plus a voltage regulator that should be included. We had another member that had an issue this year External Voltage Regulator 08 Nitro Troubleshooting with the regulator that might be your issue too. Too early to tell what has been damaged but you have to start somewhere. Good Luck and keep us informed.

So is the voltage regulator built into the alternator? I've torn out the alternator and the pulley was stiff, got it to rotate but it's in bad condition thats for sure.

What are the symptoms related to a bad alternator?

If the alternator fails, the dashboard battery warning light will turn on while you drive. Soon after, all electrical components will begin to lose power, the vehicle will stall, and a jump start won't work. If the alternator's bearing fails, it can cause a grinding noise that changes with engine speed.

How are alternator issues diagnosed?

When there is any failure in the starting and charging system, the entire system must be tested. Repair shops use professional test equipment that checks every component simultaneously and definitively. If the alternator is the problem, it will be identified.

On the Nitro, the voltage regulator is built into the alternator. It is under the black cover on the back.
