I was having the same problem, I just spent $ 425.00 to get a new time modular in it. I supposedly had a security system in it before I bought it. Was told my truck thought it was stolen, so it would shut the fuel off. It is still doing the same thing. I had a scan tool ran on it, show's no codes at all.I"m at a loss and out the MONEY... I had my Crank position sensor tested on it...said it had a spark to it. I was also told that could have been the problem..WISH it had.. the part was cheaper...

I have the same problems . I have a 2000 Durango w/ a 4.7 . Have you have any luck w/ yours yet ?? I have it at the dealership now and they cleaned wires . This did not fix the problem . It is still pouring black soot out the back and "eating gas" . I get about 5-6 miles per gallon and with gas prices now days. Is there some defect w/ this model and make that would cause so many mech. and tech. to go bald from scratching their heads with wonder ?? Please if anyone can give me any insight on this problem please let me know.

If I can get your telephone number, I would explain to you what is happening to your Durango.
My problem is solved. I too, went to the dealer, and they identified the power steering switch is bad, leading to your current problems.

Dodge will pay for the PCM , Computer for the oil leakage problem . They will not pay for the wire harness for the Durango 2000 , 4.7 l. Does any one have a solution for the oil that is in the wires now ??

I had the same problem and wrote about it in this forum. The power steering switch goes bad, leaking fluid through the ground wire which is a common wire going to the o2 sensor. When fluid goes down the ground in the o2, it gets shorted out.(reason for raw gas) The dealership does sell a wiring harnes bypass for $66.00 that runs seperate wires from the ground to the pcm. You still need to change the steering pressure switch. It's very difficult to get the fluid out of the ground wire going all the way down to the o2. Reaon for new harness bypass. I called bosh and they told me the ground wire color is white on the o2. Match that up to the wire on the other side of the connector, cut that wire and run a new wire to a ground, eleminating the old ground to the o2. Do not cut the wires on the o2. Cut the wire on the back side of the connector. I think mine was a black with a blue stripe, but i cant be sure now. Just match the two connectors to determine the one that corresponds with the white wire. Worked for me. Good luck
#269 of 853 Durango Air Conditioning
Aug 03, 2006 (5:29 am)
I have a 2001 Dodge Durango SLT. For a while now, I've noticed the blower for the air conditioner is not very strong. My wife's Ford Windstar on a setting of 3 out of 4 is faster than mine at full blast. Not much air seems to be coming out of it when at full, and all the other settings seem to be pretty slow too. Anyone run into this? Anyone know what the problem could be?
#270 of 853 2001 Durango AC blower problems
Aug 06, 2006 (5:11 pm)
OK - I was just clicking around for a bit and found this site then after about 20 minutes of reading, I became seriously concerned. I absolutely love my 2001 Durango. It's an SLT with a 4.7L. I'm getting awesome gas mileage right now. 18 city 22 hwy (don't know why but I'm not complaining). I just hit 75k miles and I have not had any problems until yesterday. I was on my way home from work and I had the A/C on max. It suddenly went off. I stopped at a light and turned it off then on again. Now it only works on MAX. low and medium settings do not work. the blower will not come on. When I put it on max it works just fine. Nice cold air but nothing at all on low or medium.
Please - if anyone has some words of wisdom to help I would appreciate it.
