#546 of 851 o2 sensor + power steering pressure switch Dodge Durango Nightmare
Jan 11, 2008 (9:29 pm)
Thanks for the past info on this problem. My 2000 Dodge Durango with 69,000miles developed the o2 sensor problems, and thanks to info from several of you guys we finally got the Power Steering Pressure switch replaced that was leaking fluid throught the wiring harnass. It doesn't smell, but the check engine light is still on, and fuel economy has dropped (7.4 MPG) , and there is still poor engine perfromance, although we have gotten rid of the rolling black plume of smoke coming out the exhaust. We are on our FOURTH o2 sensor. Please someone tell me how to get rid of all the power steering fluid that has run through the wiring. I think that is what' still causing the check engine light to still go on. Or if you have another suggestions they would be welcome. I want to get rid of this vehicle but cannot even begin to sell it with the check engine light still on. HELP!!!

I have a 2004 Durango with the same problems that you are experiencing. They all started after I took my vehicle in for the recall with the wiring in the front dash. They have already replaced the "modular" and a couple of other parts and every time I leave the dealership they assure me the problem is fixed. Then after driving for a few minutes the light is back on. Sometimes it turns on with I start my car and stays on the entire time. Other times I will drive for 10 or 15 minutes then it will come on. Other times is will be on for an extended car ride and then blink off and on for then remain on again. Today I drove for 45 minutes and the light never came on. I am frustrated and don't know what to do. I drive a lot in a major city and for long trips. They can't guarantee me that my airbag will deploy and say that the problem can be any number of things..........
Anyone else having similar problems or possible suggestions?

I also have a 2000 5.2 liter and after I drive it and it gets good and warmed up, after it sits for about a hour and a half it won't start,but then after 3 to 4 hrs. it cranks right up. Ive had tune ups thinking it has something to do with the plugs and just recently had a crankshaft sensor replaced and two days later I'm back at square one.If you find out the problem I would be most gratefull..
#551 of 851 2000 durango shuts off while driving
Jan 17, 2008 (2:04 am)
I need some help. My durango started shutting off while I was driving about 4 months ago. I couldn't figure out what was wrong so kept driving it while it would shut off and then restart after sitting for a few minutes. My mechanic changed the PCM chip and it worked great for a few days and then began shutting off again. He then changed a couple of the sensors and on my way home from picking it up it shut down again. I was able to get it started and then worked fine for 2 weeks. Then it shut down again one day and wouldn't start up even after one hour. I told my mechanic that I noticed that while he wasd towing me home, the dashboard lights were on but even though I had the car turned on the engine lights were not on (like when the key is in the on position but the car is not on) and showed that there was no gas even though I had just filled up the tank, then suddenly it dinged as it finally "turned on" and then showed that there was a full tank of gas. He said that maybe the fuel filter had gotten sucked into the fuel injection system and he replaced that but the damn car still stalled on me. I haven't driven it since cause every single time it has stalled I had my two young boys in the car with me. I have been borrowing my dad's car. It's such a shame that I'm still paying on the car and for the insurance and am not able to use it and don't know how to fix it.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me????? Please help me, I'm feeling desperate already cause I can just feel all my money being sucked out of my bank account!!!!!
#552 of 851 airbag light on
Jan 19, 2008 (3:04 pm)
The airbag light comes on and off on my '02 Durango. Dealer said seat belt tensioner needed to be replaced. After replacement the passenger side coded bad. They replaced that also. When I picked up the car the light came back on. I took it right back and after several days of troubleshooting they said front and passenger seat belts needed to be replaced. I contacted Chrysler and they agreed to pay for repair costs. I picked the car up yesterday after seat belt replacement and the light came back on. I took it right back again. Now they are saying possibly the airbag control module is bad. They have had my car for a month. Help!

Did you only replace the power steering switch and thats all?
If so - you need to remove the connector (Durango side) by cutting all 4 wires off. Take apart the connectors and the 4 pins holding the wires in place. Attach 4 new wires to the pins - solder in place. Reassembly the connector.
I completed this task a couple of years ago and do not remember where the 4 wires connect to - within the wiring harness, although 3 of them were in the location of the passenger inside fender / air cleaner box. The 4th wire attached in the area of the intake manifold - on the passenger side.
I have had no problems since completing this task on our 2000 4.7 Durango.
Once you have done one - to repeat the task is easy.
I should have taken pictures and documented this procedure - but didn't.
Perhaps some one else on this site may be more helpful.
I thought that I would advise you that there is more to do than simply replace the power steering switch.

Hey, sam1778! I just wanted to thank you for saving me a ton of time and who knows how much money. Your tips were right on and greatly appreciated! Although I had no luck with p/n PC507, my local NAPA store was able to eventually identify it as their p/n EP-27 ($17.95) using the descriptions you provided. Thanks again for taking the time to offer such helpful details. Much appreciation.
