SOURCE: 2002 dodge durango wont shift out of park

I have a Durango of the same year. The problem is the shift cable. It will bind from time to time. Like any cable of that sort, the inside relies on lubrication, although it can not be lubricated, it comes lubed up from the factory. Early into the problem, it will free up when the vehicle warms up, because the lubricant loosens up.
In short, if you replace the shift cable your problem will be solved.

SOURCE: durango cuts off while driving

hi, sounds to me that either the fuel pump is going out or the fuel pump relay is acting up. the cheapest way to check the relay first by simply swaping the relay with another relay in the power distribution box under the hood (swap it with the A/C relay)

SOURCE: I have a 1999 dodge

could be crank sensor or possibly the auto shutdown relay. use a test light to check for voltage at the coil. Hook the test light clip to ground and back probe the dark green/orange stripe wire at the coil connector. With the key on, the light should light. If not, swap the relay with another similar one--say the horn relay and try again. If still no voltage, interrogate the relay socket per instructions here: .
If there is power at the dark green wire, check the connector on the crankshaft sensor. I have pasted your wiring diagram as well as instructions for checking and replacing the cranks sensor below. Please let me know if you have questions.



Crankshaft Position Sensor TESTING On the 2.5L engine, the Crankshaft Position (CMK) sensor is located near the outer edge of the flywheel (or starter ring gear). On other models it is fitted to the right side of the engine block.
The only test you can perform without a DRBII scan tool, or equivalent, is a basic check of the sensor only.

  1. Disconnect the sensor harness connector from the main wire harness connector.
  2. Place an ohmmeter across terminals 1 and 2 (see the illustration). The meter reading should be open (infinite resistance). If a low resistance is read, replace the camshaft position sensor.



All Except V-10 Engine

  1. Remove the air cleaner assembly if necessary for access to the sensor.
  2. Disconnect the pigtail harness from the sensor.
  3. Remove the nut holding the sensor wire clip to the fuel rail mounting stud.
  4. Remove the sensor mounting hardware, then the sensor.
  5. Remove the clip from the sensor wire harness.

To install:
  1. Install the sensor flush against the opening.
  2. Install and tighten the bolts or nuts, as applicable.
  3. Install the electrical connector.
  4. Install the clip on the sensor wire harness.
  5. Install the clip over the fuel rail mounting stud. Install the clip mounting nut.

Durango error in odometer window - nobu5

Hey Gord,
Try disconnecting your CPU for about 3 to five minutes, this will reset your CPU. Then see if it starts. Note. there is probably a faulty microswitch somewhere causing your CPU to overheat and cut everthing off (No BuS). Try keeping it cold with a zip-lock bag of ice (keep your CPU dry). Your Durango should work as long as you keep the CPU is cold.

2002 Durango won't start change fuel pump, cramnkshaft sensor,

"No Bus" means something happened between the body computer and the engine computer. They are not connected to each other.
Usually a fuse, one of the computers, or the wiring harness in between.

I have a 99 Durango that won't start and it also makes a clicking noise jnstead of the bell. it has a new starter, battery and computer. could it be my positive battery cable. it also will not st

Hi Chris, I'm glad to help!

Chris it sounds like you are getting power to the starter when you say it clicks. Here's what you need to do! Take a breaker bar and socket put it on the crankshaft bolt and try to turn the engine over by hand. If you can not move it then take the serpentine belt off and try to turn it over by hand. If you can move it that means something is locked up. Try turning each pulley by hand until you find what is locked up and replace that part. NOTE: If after removing the serpentine belt you still can not move it then your engine is locked up and will need to be replaced or repaired if possible. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Chris.

My 99 Durango won't start.

If you don't know for sure, you will need to figure out if it is a no spark or a no fuel pressure issue to proceed.
If it is a no spark problem, check the ASD relay and the coil for voltage and ground signal.

During a long ride the turn signals and radio in my 2001 dodge durango both quit working suddenly. Is there a fuse that controls both and where might I find it (in the dash panel or under the hood)?

I have the same problem with my 2001 Durango. It has something to do with the ignition cylinder not making a good connection. I have to tilt the steering wheel all the way up and then giggle the key to make the turn signals and radio come back on. It's also a lot worse in cold weather.

I took the ignition cylinder out and cleaned it and it has helped the problem a little bit.

My battery keeps draining down at night it's a 99 dodge durango

you have something draining the battery,check for any lights that might be staying on,interior light,stop light under the hood light(if any),glove box light trunk light, if you have a multimeter with amp testing capability or an amp meter you can check where the drain is by removing each fuse & put the probes on each side the terminals until you find a drainage,that way you might be able to find out what is draining the power & rectify it......hope this helps......cheers
