All you need to do is Remove the POSATIVE cable from the battery for about 25 seconds then reconnect it. This will reset the computer and everything else!

Front, remove the hold down clip, should be a 7mm or a 45 torx bit to get the slider pins out. If you are not sure what you are doing, please spend a little money and have a pro do it for your safety, and the safety of others around you.

Front brake pad exchange guide.
Step1 Park the Dodge Durango on a flat surface. Put the emergency brake on and put wedges behind the wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery. Drain 2/3 of the brake fluid from the master cylinder, using a syringe. Remove the wheel and the tire assemblies. Step2 Compress the caliper piston back into the caliper bore using a large C-clamp to drive the piston into the bore. Use additional force if it is required. Using a 3/8 inch hex wrench or socket remove the caliper mounting bolts. Step3 Rotate the caliper rearward off the rotor and out from its mount. Remove the inboard and outboard brake pads. Remove the spring clip that holds the inboard brakes in the caliper. Tilt the pad out at the top to unseat the clip. Remove the retaining spring that secures it in the caliper. Unseat one spring end and rotate the pad out of the caliper. Step4 Suspend the caliper assembly from the Durango frame using mechanic's wire. Do not allow the caliper assembly to dangle from the brake hose as this may damage the brake hose. Step5 Clean the surfaces of the caliper and steering knuckle with a wire brush. Apply multi-mileage grease or similar product. Using brake fluid or break cleaner clean the caliper slide pins. Apply a light coating of silicone grease to the pins. Step6 Install the inboard brake pad and it's spring. Install the outboard brake pad. Install the caliper over the rotor and seat it in its original position until it is flush. Using a torque wrench, torque the slide caliper pins to 22 ft./lbs. Step7 Add brake fluid to the master cylinder. Bleed the brakes. Reconnect the negative battery cable to the battery. Start the engine and pump the brakes 3-4 times to seat the brake pads. Reinstall the wheels. Test drive the Durango at slow to moderate speeds to ensure that the maintenance was performed correctly.
Rear brake pad exchange.
Step1 Lift the Durango off the ground with a car jack. Support the vehicle on all sides with jack stands. Keep children and small animals out of the vicinity when you replace the brakes. Step2 Loosen the lug nuts on the wheels with a torque wrench. Remove the wheel and tire assemblies and set them aside, face up, to prevent damage. Step3 Compress the caliper and remove it by lifting the top up and off the caliper adapter. Hang the caliper from the Durango's frame with mechanical wire. Step4 Remove the inboard and outboard brake shoes from the caliper adapter. Take off the top and bottom anti-rattle springs. Keep the springs separated, as they aren't interchangeable. Step5 Press the piston into the bore with a C-clamp. To prevent damage to the pistons, insert an old brake shoe in between the C-clamp and caliper piston. Remove the C-clamp. Step6 Wipe down the caliper mounting adapter and anti-rattle springs with brake cleaner. Grease the anti-rattle springs with brake grease. Install the bottom anti-rattle springs, followed by the top anti-rattle springs. Step7 Install the inboard brake shoes followed by the outboard brake shoes. Replace the caliper and the wheel and tire assemblies. Lower the vehicle to the ground and pump the brakes to seat the pistons.
Please rate and god bless:)

Visit the autozone.com website and register the car information. It's free and will give you access to an online repair manual for the car. Information regarding the braking system should be available there. It's a handy resource. Hope this helped and best wishes.
