20 Most Recent 2004 Dodge Durango Questions & Answers

I own a 04 durango and the door lock actuator froze up internally and I could not open the rear hatch. After hours of research on my computer nothing seemed to fix the problem. I eventually figured it out myself. You must pull the screws out of the molding on the inside of the rear door. You can now pull the molding toward you and look down at the actuator and latch. You can pull on the molding quite a bit if necessary. I never broke mine and I was pretty agressive with it. Now, on top of the whole mechanism is the lock actuator. There should be a white plastic lever sticking out towards the driver side. If you can slide it from back to forward "forward is front of vehicle", the lock should be working. If not your door is not unlocking. My durango had 3 Torx screws on top of the actuator. Remove them. This will take the actuator off of the latch. Now that the actuator is not binding or holding the lock from moving, again try to move the white plastic lever towards front of vehicle. It should click and you should be able to open the door.

Is it a factory installed DVD or aftermarket?Most wireless headsets have a way to tune in to different frequencies like a radio.If the batteries are fresh in the headsets and still no sound I would buy a cheap set with adjustable frequency control and slowly scan through the spectrum to check that the DVD is sending a signal out on some channel.Is there a remote control with the DVD?Is the mute on or sound turned down? Last resort is to plug in an aftermarket audio
"sender" into the aux sound port and set the sound to the headphones from that.No wired headphone connections?If you have those, test for sound there too.Watch prices for repair parts because sometimes a complete new system will be very low in cost.

Something to think about. You should never let a gas tank run out or low as this is where any dirt settles at the bottom of the tank. I have seen a problem like yours and the fuel filter was plugged because of dirt in the bottom of the tank. Should never let a tank get lower than a quarter of a tank.

All most guarantee it will be a fuse or a relay box (silver or black boxes) check under the bonnet there should be a narrow plastic box. Take the lid off under the lid will have a diagram with the fuses and relay boxes they pull out a pair of narrow pliers helps be gentle you need to find the one that has the instruments on it swap it with another then check if they are working.
Also in addition there should also be similar under the steering wheel same process.
The relay switch and fuses you can get from a auto shop.

I think some of the Durangos have this as a regular fault. The only way to open the door is to gain access to the latch inside the door panel. You will need a cross head screw driver and a flat head screw driver. As well as a flashlight and some WD40.
Drop the rear seats and empty the trunk as you are going to have to sit in it to do this. Carefully remove the upper window trim. It is clipped in so it should pull free with a bit of patience and effort. This should reveal two cross head screws, one each side. Remove these. The lower trim panel should ease out far enough for you to see, using the flashlight, the release latch at the bottom of the door. The latch is connected to the handle by a rod so follow it down to find the latch. The trigger arm moves up and down.
Using the flat screw driver and using the handle connecting rod as a guide, push the latch trigger down. Applying light pressure to the tailgate might help it let go.
You may need to disconnect the rod at the top to get enough slack to move the latch release. I think it just hooks out with a small screw driver.
Once the tailgate is open you can then fully remove the lower trim to get better access for repairs.
