Question about 1999 Dodge Durango

3 Answers

My 99 dodge durango keeps on turning off!!

I just got this truck back in Aug. 08, It wont turn on I have to keep my foot on the gas peddle. When I am driving it will turn off no warning what so ever. I took it to a local shop, nothing came up on the scanner, so he told me it MIGHT be the crank scanner. He is not sure! I asked him if it could be the fuel pump or something to do with that. He just told me they can change the scanner. I tested my truck sure enough it turned off. I have had little problems with it. But I have never had these kind of trouble with my toyota!!

    it turns off like there is no gas running thru so I have to have my foot on the gas peddle. I bought the battery in July 08.

    how old is the battery because it sounds like your idle air control solenoid is hunting for the right position due to a bad battery

    like out of fuel ? or like ignition turned off ? check auto shut down relay , very possible crank sensor problem also

Its not the battery ... its the computer overheating... mine does too... here is the quick fix for when it happens... as far as ive found there is no perminant fix....
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

I had the exact problem with my '98 Durango. I suggest do what 66chrgr was asking under clarification. Check the battery and see if it has adequate voltage and amps and then the condition of the idle air control solenoid. What happen to me was that the battery was old and kept resetting the sensor of the the solenoid. Replace the battery and have a mechanic reprogram the solenoid. That fixed my durango entirely.

Drive vehicle down the road for 20 minutes and come to a stoplight engine stops when you take foot off gas peddle and go to apply brake. To keep vehicle from dying you have to hold the gas peddle down
