Question about 2002 Dodge Durango
Yes, same problem - its the battery in the key that needs to be replaced
Posted on Jun 09, 2010
My 04 1500 had the same symptoms. It seems that quite a few do also. I could not even jump start the vehicle. After reading all of the complicated fixes posted on the internet, I took a just chance and installed a new battery. Truck started immediately. That was the solution for me anyhow. I hope this helps someone.

Later models have a chip in the ignition key that the computer validates is is correct before allowing to start. Verify that this is the same key you have always used or the orginal 2nd key that came with truck. If you had a new key made it is either not programmed yet to the truck (see a dealer) or is not the correct type key. A key made say at a hardware store willl not have the internal chip but can be used to just unlock the door but do not put in ignition. If an invalid key is used to try and start more than 3 times then the computer will 'lock down" and then there is a procedure to for that if you need it let me know.

Check the starter motor, the starter solenoid and if it's automatic... the neutral safety switch.
If it's standard, the clutch has a switch which locks out the starter unless completely depressed. Check the switch for continuity.
