It sounds like you shorted a wire during the installation and the fuse is probably blown.

SOURCE: 2003 durango won't start after driving for a while

it sounds like it could be your temperature button also know as a thermostat
in newer cars this tell the motor if it is OK to start
if the button thinks that the motor is going to be in danger of overheating when starting then it will not allow it to run
the button is not connected to the temperature gauge in your dash bored
this could mean that you may need your cooling system flushed out
very easy i do it once a month to my car


  1. while the motor is cold, on the top of the radiator there is a hose disconnect that not using the smallest amount for force not to break the radiator.
  2. have a running hose ready to go with it turned on and the radiator cap off
  3. start the car and leave it run
  4. quickly got the the radiator and place the hose in the top of the radiator
  5. this will flush out any dirt build up around the button and may help the problem
  6. TURN OFF THE CAR THEN TAKE THE HOSE OUT
  7. put the hose back on the radiator and make shaw it is tight with out damaging the radiator
  8. start the car and fill with coolent
  9. take for a short drive close to home to make shaw you have put the hose on properly
  10. go home and let car sit for about 2 hours
  11. check the radiator and fill if needed
WHEN YOU DO THIS MAKE SHAW YOU DON'T HAVE A WARM MOTOR OR YOU MAY RISK CRACKING THE HEAD OF YOUR MOTOR THIS IS VERY EXPENSIVE IT MUST BE COLD
ALSO DONT RUN THE CAR WITH NO WATER IN IT BUT ALSO IN SAYING THAT YOU MUST RUN THE CAR BEFORE PUTING THE HOSE IN THE TOP WHERE THE CAP GOES
WHEN DRIVING THE CAR FOR THE FIRST TIME DONT LET THE CAR OVER HEAT IF HOSE COMES OFF THATS WHY YOU NEED TO STAY CLOSE TO HOME

hope this helps

SOURCE: DASH AND TAIL LIGHS DONT WORK

Check and see if you have trailer wiring on your truck. If so you do it may have a wire that is rubbed though the isulation and grounding on the body and shorting the circuit blowing the fuse. High resistance in a circuit is what blows fuses.

SOURCE: HOW TO INSTALL AMP INTO A FACTORY RADIO IN DODGE DURANGO 2002

You can buy adaptor plugs that allow a simple hook up at most car stereo places.  However, when you increase the power going to the speakers you also have to replace the speakers to handle the higher power or you'll toast them.

2003 Durango when backing up and turning I get really strong resistance.


Might be in 4-wheel drive. If so, put it back in 2-wheel - you may get some lingering bucking, but it should go away.

Try driving on a slippery patch of road until it does - in this case rain is your friend!

Installed aftermarket radio in 2001 dodge durango. not sure what to do with purple wire which is data lines system? and now guages dont work and neither does the mpg read out or anything up there all


Hopefully you used an aftermarket wiring harness that plugs directly into your Durango harness...(no cut splice etc) You did not mention if the new radio played correctly...sounds more like a fuse
to your Durango on these feature functions...your owners manual should help you identify which one...my guess is this 1 fuse controls your missing functions...hope this helps.

2004 Dodge Durango. When it set over night there is not enough charge in the battery to turn over the engine. The battery is one and half years old.


Maybe the alternator is not charging the battery up well. To test, put a voltmeter on the battery, engine running. If voltmeter is less than 13.5 volts, suspect a weak alternator-have it tested.
If charging system and alternator is good-charging between 13.5 volts and 14.5 volts, have the battery tested. Even though not old, it may have a dead cell. A parts store can load test it and see.
If battery and alternator are both good, you may have an unintended drain on the battery. You can check this by, first charging up the battery, then leave the negative terminal off the battery overnight. If it starts good next day, there may be a drain, something like a glove box light, an under hood light, a radio amp left on.
Post back if you want help with finding an unintended drain.

Changed spark plugs, now Durango won't start unless accelerator is pressed. Once released, it idles up and down then sputters out.


make sure all PLUGS are good and you did not break the cermic on any, upon installing. Then put your plug wires back on as you push in the boot twist left to right slightly. Also check your plug wires make sure none of them were spliced and grounding out. good luck.

We installed the wiring so we could pull a trailer, only the break, blinker and general lights on wires were spliced and connected to the new plug. But suddenly the backup lights will not work and no one...


Check what you did against the info at this site. Also check to be sure that you didn't unplug anything under the vehicle. Also use a test light to check power under the vehicle. Set the parking brake, turn the ignition to acc... radio and turn signals will come on,,, and put the vehicle in reverse. http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx. Scroll down and it gives wire colors for the vehicle. Also... make sure the ground wire goes to the frame and not to the harness. That may be feeding back causing the back up lights not to work. Hope this helps, Mike

Radio/cd player went dead. Tried replacing fuses


Do NOT Cut and Splice. Your local parts store sells an aftermarket radio plug in which connects to your factory harness and then you can splice in your radio into the new connectors ends that are labeled for what they go to.

Lost all power to my passenger door in my 2003 Chevy Silverado


Look for broken or corroded wiring in the door, especially where the cable goes from the body to the door. You will probably have to remove the door's interior trim panel for testing and inspection.

Visual: a wire with a nick in the insulation surrounded by a greenish stain is probably corroded through. The wire would have to be cut and spliced at that point. Use an automotive grade self-sealing or heat shrink ene-to-end splice, or put heat shrink tubing on the wire, solder the splice, then shrink the tubing over it. If the wire is part of a wire bundle, tape or zip-tie the splice to the rest of the bundle, other wise secure the cable to a support (away from possible contact with moving parts!) at or near the splice. If the door or the frame around the door is heavily rusted, you may have a bad ground connection.

Electrical: use a voltmeter or 12v tester to check for power in the door. Check the wiring to the lock and window switches first (especially red or pink). If you don't find any that read at or near the battery voltage with the vehicle accessories turned on (driver's door working), then you know it's a wiring problem. Measure voltage between device connector terminals and a good frame ground point (there may not be any power at the window or lock motors unless the corresponding switch is activated).

My radio wont turn on


Use a voltmeter or a circuit tester. 2-5 bucks anywhere worldwide.

Test the power wire from the radios wire harness for power.
If It shows power then you fried your radio.
If It shows no power from the Harness. Hopefully you just cooked the radio harness. Splice the power wire off of the radio harness and test It for power cross your fingers thats as deep as you have to go Into electrical system.
Test the radio power wire that goes to your radios harness for electric current.
When you find the power the garbage will present Itself.

Before any of the above check all of your fuses.

One thing Is for sure you def blew something.

Good Luck

2004 Honda Accord Radio fuse blows


There was a recall for the 03-04 Accord radio. It had faulty circuitry that caused the screen to go dim. Check with Honda to see if they'll still honor the recall.
