Cylinder Layout V8 5.9 L Magnum Dodge

My 1999 Dodge Durango is not firing properly. We have changed to plugs and wires but think we may have some of the wiring wrong. We can read the cylinder numbers on the block so we are not sure which are which. I have looked through my manual but can not locate this information. Please advise me on the cylinder numbers for this magnum v8 5.9L engine by dodge.

I only have the 3rd brake light working what is wrong with the outher ones

Does your Durango have a trailer hitch/receiver and trailer wiring harness? Is it original equipment or aftermarket? Has your Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light come on recently? If so, read the error code(s) stored in the onboard computer. You may have a physical wiring problem or a circuitry problem. I think your Durango has relays (fuse-protected) associated with your brake lights. Check our owner's manual for the location of these relays and verify that they are working properly. If so, start checking the trailer wiring harness.

What's your problem?I did all these changes to my 1999 Dodge Durango. They are distributor cap, rotor, wires, spark plugs, and pick up coil. My fuel pump is working I also check the alternator and it...

Check that the crank shaft position senser is plugged in and working and not broken this will cause your comp to not send fire to you coil and it won't fire hope this helps you

Need a diagram for the firing order for a 1998 Dodge durango 5.2 engine. I think I mixed the wires up. Help!

Firing Orders NOTE: To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.
If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed and installed improperly and then rewired. The new wiring arrangement would maintain the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes of the current plug wire locations and orientation of the distributor cap.

Just changed the spark pkugs and now the orange malfunction indicator light is on

Sounds like you feel handy with a vehicle. Did you gap the plugs properly. Also have you pulled each plug at cylinder to make sure it hasnt become fouled. What about plug boots, and wires. The CEL is being triggered by a misfire event in the cylinder. That can be a complete no fire, or a premature detonation, etc. Check wires, boots and plugs. You should always change the wires with the plugs as pulling the old boots and plug wires can crack them causing a short circuit or misfire. If you have verified that the plugs, wires, adn boots are all fine then you need to have the code read at your local parts stoer to determine what is causing the light to illuminate. It will be throwing/placing a DTC or Diagnostic code in teh engine computer that can be read. That code will help me or other experts diagnose better and offer more tips.
