Question about 1999 Dodge Durango
When I try to turn on the truck it sometimes turns on, other times I have to keep my foot on the gas peddle. Once I am driving, it turns off. I took it to a shop, which they cant find what's wrong with it. Scanner did not find anything wrong. So the mecanic told me if it turns off again, it MIGHT be the crank scanner. Sure enough it turned off I dont want to spend the $$$ and later on have the symptons start all over again
Replacing the crank prolly wont help... if when it turns off while driving it is due to the computer overheating... raplacing it wont help... there is a grouping of wires in the engine over the right front tire going to the computer... if you wiggle those till you hear a click in the fuse box on the other side of the engine.. you can start it right up... replacing parts probably wont help.. it sucks i know.. its just dodge. after you get it started up turn on the heat in the vehicle and if its hot outside roll down the windows... the temp will start to come back down ... faster driving speeds will help keep it cool too. stop and go is no good
