#134 of 853 pcm Module Replacement-NO BUS
Apr 26, 2006 (5:32 pm)
I have a 2001 dodge durango v8 4.7L. I had the NO BUS signal, had to have it towed to the dealer. they replaced the PCM Module, because I was in the 8 year 80,000 mile warranty that dodge covers. They also told me that my ball joints had a recall and they replaced those as well. But now here is the kicker. They put the PCM Module on and now it won't start. Its been 4 days and they still don't know why it won't start. Just a electrical problem that they are trying to find. Has anybody else had this happen?
I did have 2 problems before this happened. The Idle Air Control Motor and my lights would flicker, when you shut the doors ( if the lights were on)!!!
#135 of 853 2002 durango asb, air bag, brake control panel lights
Apr 27, 2006 (7:36 am)
I am having a problem with my 2002 durango. At times the abs, brake and air bag lights come on on the control panel ( all at the same time). When this happens the air conditioner, back windshield wipers, back up lights and the speedometer all quit working. It is not a consistent problem though it is getting worse. Sometimes everything will be fine when I start the vehicle and then it will just happen. Other times it starts as soon as I start the vehicle. Any ideas???

I have a 2005 Durango LTD. Hemi with 3.55:1 gears. I am also towing a 4000lbs. lightweight house trailer. No problems so far. At 100pkh the hemi turns 1600rpm, at 120kph 1850rpm. You can change your ratio to 3.96:1 I believe, that will give you more power and maybe a smoother ride with the motor. Be aware that yor gas milage will drop a bit. But I think, in BC in the mountain, the gas milage will be not as good as in Ontario which is mostly flat. The $4000 to change your rear end gears seams high. If you add headers with all the other goodies you have in mind, your horsepower will jump to approx. 395HP from 345HP.
Good luck. Horst

To all the 2004 new Style body Durango drivers.
I purchased my Durango with 6700kilometers on the odometer from a lady who plated the Durango September 2004. So far, I had no problems. It runs very quiet and has lots of power. To day I installed a fuel saver "Tornado". The fuel millage is not really bad for the horsepower you have plus it is a heavy SUV. My intention is to add also a K&N air filter. Keep you posted.
#138 of 853 2005 Durango Hemi gas millage
Apr 28, 2006 (4:06 pm)
I drove 245 kilometers and used 35.7L of gas. 14.6L per 100 kilometers. To convert this into miles per gallon is approx. 19.2 m/g imperial. In US 16m/gallon. All this by city driving. I have not taken the Durango on any trips yet. My 1994 Astro van was using more gas than the Durango with a Hemi. The only penalty is the price of "high test gas". Keep you posted.

I just got an 01' durango. The dealership lost the original transmitter. I bought a transmitter, but I dont have the program for it. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me on this. I dont have the original so I can't use that method. I need the initial method that is in the owners manual(which I do not have.) Again I would really appreciate some ones help in this matter.

A faulty catalytic converter will do the same thing. If the inside is collapsed and is blocking the exhaust path you will have the same same symptoms. The car will start without any problems, check engine light will be on but no power. I hope this helps.

I've got a loaded 2001 Durango SLT. Under warranty, the motor was using oil and the check gages (sic) light would come on, but no "problem" could be found. The rig has been babied, never overheated and serviced religiously at the dealership, but now out of warranty. The went to the 7/75,000 warranty in 2002.
Two weeks ago 65,000 mi. it just started stalling from a stop and we took it immediately to the shop, where it's been since. The dealership diagnosed this as a cracked head $2k to repair both heads. I was told by the dealership and an independent shop that the cracked heads on these motors is quite common, but since there is no service bulletin and no recall, the dealership's hands are tied. Chrysler is denying assistance, of course. Does anybody have any information on these heads cracking or possibly related issues?
