#170 of 851 2002 Durango Stalling
Jun 17, 2006 (5:50 am)
I have a 2002 Dodge Durango that has stalled several times in the last two weeks and also would not accelerate luckily it has been around town, or when I back up will barely move but it does very slowly. I had it completely checked out at a reputable auto repair shop - 49,700 miles out of warranty. They did a complete diagnostic test, checked the battery which was 3 years old, pulled up some codes P0456, P0442,P0443, P0340 and after thorough investigation for leaks etc.- They told me that I had to bring to dealer to reflash the PCM because they did not have the updated software. The fun begins I bring to the dealer we drove it there no problems etc., they claim the battery is dead and had to replace there were no problems with the battery even though it is 3 years old, the post was broke well if it was broke I would not have been able to drive it there. They claim that the new battery will cure the stalling problem even though the check engine light is still on with code P0443 still showing up unfortunately the other shop cleared previous codes so they did show up at the dealer. Any suggestions or similar problems with fixes. I would love some help - this is my family car with young children as passengers and we are going on a long road trip soon!
#171 of 851 1999 Durango stalls, restarts after 5 minutes
Jun 17, 2006 (12:36 pm)
Another stalling Durango - mine is a '99 with 138,000 miles. It stalls like the fuel line has been cut (still cranks), with NO BUS as the odometer reading. After sitting for about 5 minutes, it starts just fine. After reading another post, I changed the Crank Position Sensor, and it died again a few days later. Calling the dealer, they said it sounded like an ignition problem, an auto electric shop thought it was maybe a fuel relay or pump. With the NO BUS coming up, the one guy who worked on it thought it might be the main computer, but couldn't get it to duplicate the problem in the shop. I amy just replace the computer, any advise on buying a used one (or how much is a new one)? Any other advise?

I have a 99 4x4 5.9 liter durango. A few weeks ago i was driving and it just stalled out. it started agian pretty quick. It was the first hot day here. then about two weeks later on a hot day i stopped for an apt. it would not start. I waited 30 minutes and it cranked right up. then 30 minutes later died agian while driving. everything else was working fine and it would turn over but not crank. So I sat in the middle of the road for about 10 minutes in rush hour and it just started right up finally. it has been in the shop ever since with no luck at finding anything or replicating issue. Does anyone have any ideas?

I had this happen to me Saturday!!!!!!!!!
With my two small children with me an hour away from home. I paid the $150 tow bill and my vehicle is sitting in the dealership lot as I type. They say it may not be until tomorrow before they can even look at it! I was traveling 65 mph, lost power, guages dropped to 0, pulled over waited an hour in 93 degree heat with my kids. I had no warning and was lucky to be in the right lane to get the the emergency lane. I can only imagine what I am going to hear! I appreciate any suggestions or input. I saw the PCM comment, even the tow guy said sounds electrical lets just take you to a dealer! Please help!!!!

Saturday my two children and I were on our way to shop for pageant dresses when less than a quarter of a mile from my destination I went from 70mph to 0 with guages all dropping to 0. I fortunately had got into the right lane knowing my exit was coming up and was able to make it to the side of the road safely. We sat in 93 degree weather waiting an hour for the tow truck. After speaking with the tow truck driver He stated it sounded like an electrical problem and towed me close to home at a dealer. It as I type is still sitting there, I have no other vehicle, and they may not even be able to look at it until tomorrow. Please help any suggestions? I read about the PCM is that it? I appreciate any help or suggestions!!!!!!! Thank you!

99 durango also. Had the same problem. Would start but not stay running. IAC Valve and the TPS Sensor. So far has fixed the problem. About $88.00 worth. Does not always show up in a diagnostic. More power and better idleing.

a very similar thing happened to me this weekend. After a very long day at the waterpark in 103 tempetures, my family could not get our 1999 dodge durango(89,000miles) started in the parking lot. After 30 minutes of frustration it finally started only to die again 3 miles down the road.We were left fearing our saftey because we were not all the way on the shoulder and the hazard lights would not work. Seeing as how we were on a desert road in hundred degree tempeures we had little options. We waited 2 hours for a tow truck to find us.The truck sat in the driveway for 2 days and started no problem this morning, but as my husband was driving on the freeway to his work at a body shop it stalled again!!!!!The abs light goes on, my low fuel warning light,oil gauge as well as many others lights. somebody please help. 3 kids and without a car!!!!

Try having someone check the IAC Valve, TPS Sensor. Also could be your computer needing a kick in the butt. I just installed these parts on my 99 Durango and it works like a charm (knock on wood). Also changed my spark plugs. Disconnecting the battery will also clear the computer. If the problem reappears it is probly a sensor. Good luck.

Same issue with my '99 Durango. Typically when it stalls, it takes 5-30 minutes to get a restart. I figured out through various posts that it is the PCM. Mine has a problem in high ambient temps of staying cool and overheats. I pour ice-water on the PCM and viola - starts right up like nothing happened. This usually lasts for less than 5 minutes in city driving (stop & go) but can last for 100's of miles at 70 mph. What a pain it is though!!
