SOURCE: spark, but not firing
Three things are required for an engine to run: 1] Fuel/Air Mixture; 2] Compression; and 3] Ignition (Spark). Since you advise spark is present, and barring major mechanical malfunction we'll assume compression is also... which leaves fuel. The easiest way to verify a fuel delivery problem is to remove air cleaner and spray starter fluid or carb cleaner into the air intake and try starting with substitute "fuel". If it trys to run briefly, then you are not getting gas to the engine. Check the fuel pump fuses, as these can blow. The newer cars also have a impact detection device that will shut down fuel delivery if a frontal impact has occurred, but these sometimes are too sensitive and misfire from a minor bump. That would have to be reset by a qualified tech. If the fuses are good, you might need to replace the fuel pump, but check the wiring connections first. The Durango probably has a submersible electric pump mounted inside the gas tank, and they can be a challenge to change out, plus the new high pressure injection pumps are a little pricey for what they are, but if you gotta have it, you GOTTA HAVE IT!
Good luck with the Durango... Hope this helped.

It is your computer. I had this recently as well. No Bus means no connection to the on board computer. There is a company in Florida that repairs these computers, so don't get suckered in by the dealership for 750-1000.

well it sounds to me as if the timing bet as jumped its time,mabe not much a tooth or two. but thats all it would take to make the car want to start, but it wont let the car fire properly.

You said you have fuel flowing from the inlet line of the injection pump? But not at the injector lines?
