My 2001 Dodge durango got the same code, but would not start back up. Come to find out, the CPM module died, so it was covered under the dodge warranty ( 7 year , 70,000 mile warranty) so they replaced it and it still wouldn't start. It was the Crank Sensor. Been running fine since.
HOpe this helps. Had a recall on the ball joints too and they replaced those for free, the cpm module is your computer ( runs about $800.00)
#148 of 853 Stalling, Ball Joints and Rust Problems with 2006 Durango
May 10, 2006 (6:38 am)
I am considering getting a 2006 Durango Limited 4WD with Hemi V8. It appears that Dodge is having a great deal on the Durangos right now. I got concern, however, after reading through some of the messages in this forum.
There are a couple questions that I would like to seek advice from everyone on this forum: (1) Have the problems with stalling and ball joints been satisfactorily resolved so far or that they are still concerns for the 2006 version? (2) Also, when I went to a Dodge dealership yesterday, I noticed that about half of the 2006 Dorangos have had their mufflers already showing signs of extensive corrosion even before leaving the lot. Does anyone know whether this is a known problem with the 2006 Durangos? What was of a particular concern to me is that when the sales person showed me a nicely polished demo in the show room with 5000 miles on it (was driven carefully by a Dodge manager, I was told), the muffler on it has been completely rusted. Some spots were close to be rusted through. With today's corrosion protection technology, one should not expect to see that.
I would appreciate it very much if anyone can offer any information on these items as well as any suggestions on whether one should stay away from this car.

thank you for the advice.I will start with the crank sensor and if that doesn't work I'll try a "copilot" mentioned in #108.
#150 of 853 2000 Durango turn signal problem
May 11, 2006 (9:10 pm)
About 6 months ago our right turn signal worked liked a trailer was pluged in (about twice as fast), left was fine. I took out the front and back 'housings', bulbs, looked at the connections I could see. Everything looked fine. When I put it all back together it worked fine. Now it's doing it again! This is a well kept 2wd. Not a big problem but it's not right and I can't find a problem or think of a reason. ANY ideas??

I had the same problem on my 2000 Durango. engine would just shut down and wait for a few minutes and bam start back up again. Few other mechanics I talked to said it would be a problem with the Crank Position Sensor. I replaced that and so far it has been running fine and no problems with stalling. I picked the part up at Auto zone and it cost me about 60 bucks. it is a pain in the butt to replace but can be done by a DIY. the part is located on the 5.9L engine right above and behind the oil filter, behind the exhaust manifold.

#153 of 853 Tail Lights Stay On
Jun 04, 2006 (7:13 am)
Sometimes after a long drive the tail lights on my 98 Durango 5.9 L will not go out unless I disconnect the battery. Disconnecting and reconnecting the battery solves the problem. Any ideas about what causes this and how to fix it? Also, about how much does the repair cost? Directions on how to do it myself? Thanks for your help.
#155 of 853 2000 Durango
Jun 05, 2006 (1:29 am)
I have a 2000 Durango. Died on me 3 years ago on the freeway, almost got myself killed trying to safely manuever over to the side of fwy. Diagnosis: Engine seized due to losing oil pressure. Cost almost $6K as it was, of course, just out of warranty. This thing had been babied--oil changes every 3 months, the works. Then 1 year ago, it died on me AGAIN on the freeway. Diagnosis? Needed a new transmission--cost me almost $2K. Then, 2 months ago, on the way to Disneyland for a family trip, engine died ONCE AGAIN!!! Diagnosis? NEEDS ANOTHER NEW ENGINE--Hole in piston! I decided to NOT put another cent in this moneypit, even though I LOVE the Durango! Spent last 2 days looking at new vehicles, against my better judgement decided to check out a 2006 Durango since they are really giving out smokin' deals to move the inventory. Seriously thought about buying it. I thought that since it was redesigned and had a HEMI, that it was a totally different vehicle. Well, I didn't budge on my price, because if I'm going to buy another Durango, it would have be an INCREDIBLE deal, and the dealer didn't want to come down, so I walked. SO GLAD I DID!! After doing hours of research on the net about the new Durango and the problems everyone has been having, I am ecstatic that I didn't cave in and buy one. Plus, 14 mpg gas mileage? Geez! It's the Toyota RAV4 for me. Much better warranty--gas mileage is 24 mph in the city. Dodge powertrain warranties USED to be 7yr/70K, now they are only 3yr/36K for powertrain. There's a reason for that! They were losing too much money with all the dang repairs! They don't stand behind their products. Toyota powertrain warranty is 5 yr/60K. The RAV4 is smaller, but does come with a 3rd seat option, and it looks good. Drove one today and that thing is quick! The minute I left the Dodge dealership, I was happy that I didn't make the same mistake again. If I bought another Durango after what I've been through, then hell, I would need my head examined! The Durango IS beautiful, and is a great ride--WHEN IT WORKS!!!! I hope you all have better luck than I did. My suggestion--get rid of it at the first sign of problems, because it only gets worse, and the manufacturer will not stand behind their product. I hope other Durango owners love how it looks on the road, because it's going to cost you a fortune to keep it there.

I have a 99 Durango and had the same problem. Found out that my front ball bearings were shot. Went to Auto Zone and picked up a whole new Hub assembly kit for $170.00 and fixed the problem.
