Hello fellow dodge drivers, I would like to first say i've been a chysler owner for 5 years now, and ive always liked there products, I recently bought a 2006 dodge durango with the 5.7 hemi. First month i owned this truck I loved it, then the 2nd month it started to skip ocasionally. Took it to the dealer they said it was a bad coil pack, they replaced it and on my way home it started skipping again. So I then take it to another shop they fixed a bad wire and sent me on my way, on the way home it started skipping again. I take it back to the shop the next day where they ran some tests and found I had a bad pcm (computer). Ive had this vehicle for 4 months and I have over $1000.00 into it. I talked to the dealer and they said that there was a 80000 mile waranty on it. Which i didnt know. So now its been three weeks and i still dont have my vehicle because the part is on national back order.

I was driving a few months ago and my radio stop working along with the back windshield wiper, and interior lights. Just recently my turn signals have stop working the signal light does not come on inside nor outside. All the fuses are fine I just don't know where to look or who I should be calling to have it fix. Does anyone else know?

I just purchased a new battery in June, because dealer said battery was reading dead. Since i put in new battery, everything fine except no cd player on radio. Then 9/2/ car 100 % dead again.. This time 24 hrs before when got in unlocked car horn went on and stayed on after car was started and put in gear and was driven several feet. The drove it about 50 miles before battery went dead. It is like something is drainging the battery.. Any ideas before I take it to the garage and they rip me off??

You probably ARE blowing a fuse....just not one that is in the fuse box that is on the drivers side dash...you have probably blown a MAIN 40AMP fues in the box over the drivers side Wheel under the hood! I ran into a similar issue. I blew the 40 AMP main and all that stuff wouldnt work...I replaced the fuse and would blow it a few days (maybe minutes) later.
The problem was that I actually USE my emergency brake when I park in my driveway. There is a bundle of wires that are right next to the gear teeth on the top of of the E-Brake pedal Over the years...those wires rubbed against the gear-teeth until the insulation wore off. Then when I applied the E-Brake....sometimes it would short that wire ...blow the main fuse...and ALL the stuff you listed....wouldnt work anymore.
Solution: Cover the exposed wire with electrical tape. ZIP-TIE the bundle further up in the dash....replace the MAIN fuse. No problems since.

Sorry, I have no advice ... but I'm having very similar problems, so if you figure it out, please let me know - and I will do the same!
My 98 Durango drains the battery every time it sits for more than a couple hours. Took it to a shop who couldn't find anything wrong, despite spending around 10 hours on it. For now, we are unhooking the battery EVERY TIME we shut it off for more than a few minutes, but that's a pain in the butt and I'm sure it's not good for the battery, either. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

Pull the plug on rear wiper motor, It does not complete its cycle and continues to draw current, about 8 amps and will kill battery in a few hours to a day and also check light under hood by pulling connector off and check fuse #12 inside fusebox in truck and replace if blown after doing the above. These 2 items, rear wiper and under hood light fix a lot of electrical problems when disconnected. Interior lights start working and radio starts to keep proper time, etc. etc. Hope this helps.

Wow - thanks a bunch! The hood light hasn't worked in a while, but the rear wiper was just as you described - about halfway through it's cycle. So I unplugged it, and so far it's been a little less than a week with no battery drain! I can't tell you how excited we are - this has been a constant pain in the butt for MONTHS now. Once again - THANK YOU very much! It's amazing that something that has been so vexing for us can have such a simple solution...
