SOURCE: 2004 dodge durango engine shuts off while driving

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.

SOURCE: Electrical Shut Down

More than likely its the alternator which has the regulator in it and ran down the original battery.

theres wires that go to the starter that could have come loose. sometimes theres fusible links in those wires that go bad.
but most likely you have a bad fuse somewhere

SOURCE: I have a 2002 Dodge Durango & my PCM needs to

You may be able to get it replaced under warranty if it's less than 80,000 miles on the odometer.

To answer your other question, it all depends on how the PCM was blown. It may have shorted out just enough to cause a constant draw in the system. Maybe not noticeable right away, but weather changes etc. can cause the cumulative drain to be more than the battery is being charged while driving (if you're not putting a LOT of miles on when you drive it)

Durangos are very sensitive to bad or failing batteries. Have your battery load tested. If it registers flaky or is older than 5 years, I would replace it anyway.

1998 Forester cargo light won't go off


Yes these are the switches. It sounds like they have gone bad or the wires to them have gone bad. Your best bet is to try and find the other side of the switches on the interior of the car and see if anything looks bad. I dont believe there is a fuse but it is worth looking to make sure.

The interior lights stay on and the door ajar light is on when driving. the interior lights stay on when you shut off the car thus running the battery down. It happens about 70 percent of the time and when...


Find the lamp push button on each door.
Open one door, and only one door (or tailgate).
Push the lamp button IN at that door. If light goes out, then that particular push switch needs adjustment or replacement.
Cl;ose door and open another door. Push button IN.
Keep doing this until you find faulty door push button.

Which door was it?

Battery drain


Can't say if it is the cause of your drain or not, but the radio fuse is slot F7 and requires a 25-amp fuse.
