Keep it in mind that there is a common harness grounding problem exclusive to the 2000 durango. It originates from a failure of the power steering sensor which allows power steering fluid to slowly wick (over a period of months) through the entire ground wiring of the main harness. This creates all kinds of codes and system failures. The worst of these- it affects the readings from the O2 sensors to the PCM creating extremely rich fuel mixtures, soot and poor gas mileage. Another system affected is the idle control (erratic) and engine codes start popping on for the fuel injectors. It is at least a possibility that it could ground out the tranny sensor and create "pending failure" codes (these do not trigger the engine light but show up in the OBD history. These pre-engine light codes can make you fail a smog test.
Look at "o2 sensor nightmare" message streams in this forum if you want to learn more about this serious flaw in the 2000 durango.

#750 of 853 Radio and a few other problems
Jun 15, 2010 (6:40 am)
After a recent rain, I got into may 2000 Durango and found that the radio, rear wiper, dome lights and power mirror adjustment were no longer working. I checked the fuse panel to the left of the dash and the fuse/relay panel behind the battery in the engine compartment. All the fuses check out ok. I even replaced the radio fuse just in case it was blown where I couldn't see it. Still nothing. Inside the fuse cover there was a notation about circuit breakers????? I could not find where they are located.
Does anyone know where to find these circuit breaker or do they even exist? What else can I be looking for?
I bought this used and there was no manual with it.

Last year in the rain I got out of my 2006 with the engine running, opened & shut the hatch and all the locks locked. I thought it was my fault. A few days later, in a heavy rain, my wipers stopped working and my headlights would not turn off and the engine would not stop running with the key out of the ignition. After I got the truck to turn off after driving it around the block in the rain, the lights were going on and off all night long by themselves. What it was -was I had had a windsheild replaced a year before that and they did not seal it correctly and water was pouring onto the computer component and fried it. The dealership had to do wind/air/water seal test on the windsheild to make sure of this and then I had to get a new windsheild. At first the windsheild co. said it was fine but when I explained the liability side of the car turning off or "doing what the compter wanted to do" they changed it no questions asked.
#753 of 853 '99 Dodge Durango Brake issues
Jun 17, 2010 (10:21 am)
I have a 1999 Dodge Durange 5.2L SLT. My rear brakes started to lock up. The first thing we found was that the e-brake had come apart and jammed the wheel. That was fixed and didnt resolve the issue. Next we changed the master cylinder. That didn't resolve the issue. Next we have changed the RWAL valve (proportion valve). That has also not resolved the issue. The issue is with both rear wheels. Any suggestions???

We are having the same problem but the emission light goes on and off. When the emission light goes off, the vehicle drives normal. I have no clue what it could be! Does anyone have any answers?
#755 of 853 Rear/Front differential and transfer case leaks
Jun 28, 2010 (8:44 pm)
I just had my car serviced and the mechanic told me that my rear and front differentials and my transfer case has leaks. I just had the rear and front differentials serviced about 6 months ago. It sounds serious and wondered how much it would cost to have this fixed. I have a 2000 4.7 Dodge Durango 4wd and it has about 232,000 miles on it.

Well there are "leaks" and then there is a kind of "weeping". If you lift the car and see fluid actually dripping out, or the underside washed with oil streaming back from the XFR case or DIFF, then yeah, you'll be losing considerable fluid over time and you need to attend to it. But if there is only a small damp spot and a minor weep---given the miles on your truck---I think I'd just keep an eye on it and not do anything.

It must just be weeping because there are no spots on the ground. I assume that if was actually leaking then there would be drips on the ground. I will keep an eye on it. Thank you
