I had this happen to me before. My battery had went out and I had put another in (didn't buy a new one-- it was holiday). It did this exact thing to me. The scary part is once, it was on the interstate going about 75 mph... didn't die but all gauges went to nothing. It turned out that the battery I was using didn't have enough cold cranking amps and was pulling down the alternator too much so the computer shut it down. The one time it didn't... it was because the RPH's were too high. Try checking the battery and alternator... make sure you have the right battery and have an alternator shop test your alternator if the battery is good.

Should the fan stay on when i turn the car off on a 2004 durango 4.7?


Yes, it stays on because not all the heat from the engine has been safely evacuated to a tolerable level before the engine was shut down .

My dodge durango(2003) shut off on me when i was driving yesterday. Engine cranks but doesn't start. Relays and fuses are all good. any ideas?


It sounds like the fuel pump has failed, I'd start by checking the fuel pressure. Turn everything off so you hear whether on not the fuel pump runs when you turn the key to "on". The pump should run for 3-5 seconds and the stop and it won't start running again, until you turn the key to "start".

Trucks shuts off while driving


I have a 2000 dodge ram. I had the same problem the truck would just stall no matter how fast or slow i was going. It ended up being the crankshaft position sensor. You need to check for codes to find the problem. p0385-p0389 is the crank shaft sensor. It takes about 5 min. to change if thats the problem. On that year you might be able to turn the key to the on position but not starting then off, then on, then off, then on (three times) on the third time leave on and watch the odometer it will flash codes then will say p-done.

My 99 dodge durango shut off on my wife. she said that the engine light turned on and the engine just shut off. she said she tried to turn it back on, but the durango just started t shake. now when you try...


Check your PCM a very common issue among Durangos See if there is any type of error code in the odometer. If 'no bus' is shown it is your PCM the main computer and your looking at about $500-$800 to replace it. to get it started try unhooking the battery cable for a few minutes and then hooking it back up
