Question about 1998 Dodge Durango
I have a 1998 Durango with some problems in the electrical system somewhere. The Remote Key, The AC contols, Interior Lights, Cigarette lighter do not work. The AC Controls work on max blow setting only. This problem goes away for a few minutes and then comes back. It's somehow connected to the drivers door, when I open it, the ac contols stop completely. I have found a white plastic box mounted to the left of the brake pedal (behind the diagnostic plug) that has a lot of wires attached to it and is held in place by a large bolt. I loosened to bolt to open the box and the electronic chime came on, the ac contol started working, loosened it some more to open the box and look for bad wires and everything dyed. The car wouldn't start and everything was dead. That scared the hell out of me and I tighened the bolt (srew) back to where it was and everything went back to "normal". The truck runs fine, and I'm worried about opening that box again.
What is that box, can I open it and fix the short that's in there?
Yes you Can. Just unhook the Battery Cables Before you Tear into the Box. The reason that everything went Nuts with it is whenever you Un Bolted the Box you took the Ground away from the Box and all the Components Connected to it. That Bolt is a Common Ground for the Dash ans other Components. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
