Question about 1999 Dodge Durango

1999 Dodge Durango issues

For what seems like forever now my dodge durangos gadges have been going in and out. The truck keeps running fine, but the whole dash just shuts down and the abs, fuel, gadges lights come on. Then it seemed that it was correcting itself just to have it out of the blue not to run at all. It cranks but wont start. But if I step on the fuel peddel it will start, and it will stay running as long as my foot is on the peddel. once I remove my foot it dies. I removes the battery cables and put them back on and it ran for a cpl hours but then went back to not wanting to run again. is any of this connected? Can it be connected? Help? Please?

    believe it or not, with these durangos, it DOES matter which battery cable u connect first. if u do it in wrong order, it will run really rough and not stay running. If you r disconnecting battery, remove ground first, then positive. When u r installing battery, connect positive first, then the ground. This is also true if u r getting or giving a jump start. It took me a LOOOONG time to figure that out -ive owned it for 13 years now...

Any codes? You may have a bad dash ground or need to change the complete dash.

SOURCE: Electrical Shut Down

More than likely its the alternator which has the regulator in it and ran down the original battery.

SOURCE: 1999 Dodge Durango. Brake Light and the ABS Light

If you backup lights are not working as well, I would say check the fuse for the backup lights, if the fuse is good, see if you are getting power to that fuse. We had this problem and after weeks of searching and changing sensors, we found the backup light fuse was good, but not getting power. Ran a wire from that fuse to the cig. lighter fuse and all woprksf great.

SOURCE: Check gauge light came on in my 1999 dodge

Charge your battery to full charge, next if you have a test light hook up the negative cable to the battery then with the test light touch one end to the positive battery cable and one to the positive post, is the light on? if yes is it bright? if yes Check your glove box and remove the glove box light check the light again, is it still bright? then check the rear cargo lamp and see if it's on if not, remove the bulb anyway and check the light one more time. if the light is still bright disconnect the light from the positive cable and the battery and then disconnect the positive wire to the alternator once it is disconnected do the light test again. Hook light to post and to the positive cable, is the light still bright? if no It's the alternator diode trio regulator Bridge, if it's still bright hook up the alternator wire again and then with the hood up and the hood light disconnected or the bulb pulled, locate the fuse panel and remove one fuse at a time, while you watch the light be sure to have the bulb out of the dome light so it does not give you a false reading. Now pull one fuse at a time if the light goes out thats where you have a problem on that circuit, on the fuse panel lid it will have it marked as what it is you can let me know what circuit it is and I can tell you how to check that circuit or if you prefer you can go to http://www.alldatadiy.com and buy a subscription for your car and it will have all the test and wiring information you want.
If you find the alternator is the culprit it could even be the brushes have fallen out one side or the other and is shorting if the battery is fully charged take it to auto zone and they can test the alternator output, if it does not put out 13.5 to 14.5 volts and 60 or 90 amps and 900 RPMS you know the alternator is bad just buy a replacement because rebuilding your alternator would cost as much buying a new or rebuilt alternator that has had everything done to it.
Now for the check engine light while your at auto zone you can have them pull the codes for your computer and that will help give you an ideal if the two problems are related. If the battery voltage drops below 10.5 volts the check engine light will come on because the computer is detecting low voltage if you run it on low voltage for very long you may burn out the computer. Hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya

Durango error in odometer window - nobu5


Hey Gord,
Try disconnecting your CPU for about 3 to five minutes, this will reset your CPU. Then see if it starts. Note. there is probably a faulty microswitch somewhere causing your CPU to overheat and cut everthing off (No BuS). Try keeping it cold with a zip-lock bag of ice (keep your CPU dry). Your Durango should work as long as you keep the CPU is cold.

1999 Dodge Durango driver side window does not roll up nor down.


Remove the door panel and find the window motor Unplug it and using a separate car battery run cables directly to the window motor When you switch the polarity the motor will either bring the window up or down or if noting happened change the window motor and window regulator assembly.
