#10 of 853 YET ANOTHER 1999 DODGE DURANGO STALLING
Sep 27, 2005 (6:29 pm)
My 1999 Dodge Durango hit 100,000 miles and began stalling on a regular basis. Plenty of fuel, serviced regularly.
Mechanics convinced me a new fuel pump was the problem. $390.00 and two
hours later, it stalled again.
Nearing a grand in labor and parts now, the computer brain was replaced only
to have the darn thing stall yet again. Sensors, coils. gaskets, you name it, all
checked, repaired, replaced. Still stalling.
Shame, because the car isn't worth squat to trade or sell because so many
people are aware of the Durango's lousy engines. Wish I had researched the
internet before buying one. Never another Dodge for this family.

There are LOTS of people having this problem with stalling, including myself. From reading these forums, it seems that this problem has existed in both the Durango and the Ram with Hemi since they were first produced. I have had my '05 Durango with Hemi serviced a few times for a problem that absolutely exists but can never be duplicated in the shop. In all fairness, my dealership has been great so far but it is getting to the point that they have no idea what to do with it and I don't feel safe driving it.
As far as I know, although both the US and Canadian transportation authorities are currently investigating the issue, there haven't been any recalls or service bulletins issued in Canada or the US. The Canadian site doesn't provide much info. but the US site does. In fact, I suggest you read the letter from Chrysler to the transportation authority, it's very interesting.
Anyway, I will bring my D back to the shop tomorrow and maybe, just maybe they'll be able to find the cause of the problem. I just hope I don't stall on the highway and get smucked by a tractor trailer on the way to the dealership.
One last note.....it's really important that quality issues which aren't addressed by the dealership or manufacturer are reported to the proper authorities. Especially when safety is a concern. The squeaky wheel gets the oil...right?
#12 of 853 Oxygen Sensors Shorting-Out
Oct 04, 2005 (2:42 pm)
Have replaced o2 sensors on 2000 Durango 4.7L twice. Check engine light comes on each time after fourth (approx.) start of engine. Took to dealer who diagnosed and said that PCM needs replacing and that the o2 wire harnesses are fried and need replacing also. Cost is excessive. Anyone else heard of a similiar situation and beter remedy?
#13 of 853 04 Dodge Durango Overhead console temperature error
Oct 05, 2005 (4:41 am)
Has anyone experienced a problem with their overhead console temperature read-out getting stuck on the wrong external temperature? For example, according the the overhead external temp display will give you the temp. reading of 10 to 20 degrees lower than the correct external temp. It will do this intermittently, and after driving the Durango for 15-20 minutes the temp will eventually correct itself. Dodge has had the dealership replace the front control module, but as I drove it from the dealership the overhead temp. was reading 69 degrees and the true external temp. was 79 degrees!!! Dealership is scratching their heads. Dodge is clueless. Anyone else having this problem out there?????

have you installed the new PCM at the same place without any changes. I read in a other Durango Forum that you maybe shoud give the unit more air to breath (cooling).
Was there any changes in the preformance or is there no diffence between before and after??
#15 of 853 04 Durango Headlights go off while driving!!!
Oct 24, 2005 (5:32 pm)
Headlights AND parking lights go off, both while driving and parked. Tail lights DO NOT go off. Fog lights, if switched on, stay on (fortunately!!!)
Very intermittant, dealer "cannot reproduce the problem", have had it in the shop 6-7 times since 9/28, cannot fix. Anyone know a good lawyer??.
Anyone else hear of this??
And yes, my outside temp display is usually wrong...

Dealer had the Durango all day today trying to "reproduce the problem". naturally, they could not. Did the "wiggle test" on all lighting connectors, checked wiring etc. Dodge/Chrysler told them it "could' be some module that controls the headlights (DUH!!!), dealer says we can try it, but they cannot guarantee that will fix it since....they can't "reproduce the problem"....so this is a "try it and see"... to the tune of $821.00. (this is a "restricted part" whatever that is...) Of course, since it's electrical, there's no return if it doesn't solve the problem. Awfully expensive gamble. So, I'm hoping that somewhere in all the wiggles that it healed itself...I think that's my best hope at this point.....
#17 of 853 2005 Durango stalling
Nov 11, 2005 (10:44 am)
I have a new 05 Durango, with 2356 miles on it. It has stalled on me about 10 times. It happens every time I make a slow turn. Today, I almost was hit when I stalled making a right turn at a light. I lost power steering and came close to running into a truck. I am very concerned about my safety.
