SOURCE: 2005 Dodge durango shuts down.

I had a similar problem with 99 Durango.
Replaced PCM with refurbished "brain" from online Florida company and no problems since. You may want to google for refurbished PCM and call the guys who sell them -- they were helpful to me and my fix was 3 screws and < $300.00.

My 1998 dodge durango slt wont drive past 40 miles an hour

Hello Jeff Winner,

Over the last 20 years ... cars have has a LIMITED OPERATION FEATURE added... When the engine READS something that is not IMMEDIATELY catastrophic... it will allow you to
LIMP home... rather than a complete shut down.

Limp mode:
You SHOULD also have a CHECK ENGINE light... (?)

My best advice is to limp on down to your near-by FREE code reading shop... and have a READER tell you what CODES are registered...

A blocked exhaust system will also seriously SLOW your progress
((soon to stop all-together)).

Hope this helps

Check you exhaust prices BEFORE you go...!!,1998,durango,5.9l+v8,1314473,exhaust 1998 DODGE DURANGO 5 9L V8 Catalytic Converter RockAuto

While I am driving my 2005 dodge Durango on the highway a red light comes on its upside down key in water. Then when I stop a shut the truck off and then on it has a loud ticking noise. How to fix it

Hi, you will have to check your owners manual to verify the symbol and what it could mean.

See below, if it looks like that,(it sounds like a thermometer symbol to me) it could indicate engine overheating, so check all your fluid levels as well as any leaks for water, antifreeze, oil etc.

Also check that your radiator cap is sealing, it is under pressure when the engine is at temperature so it should seal tightly.

Treat any warning sign with caution, it is happening for a reason, and it could leave you stranded on the side of the road.

Good luck!

01 Dodge Durango started smoking white smoke from under hood at light check gauges comes on and off got it home it starts and runs but will shut off and now has check engine light

you may have just smoked the oxygen sensor wire, its located in the exhaust. If you have the money pay the checkout charge at the dealer if not, back trace it from the sensor and see if you can find melted insulation

2006 dodge durango shut off while driving, lost all power. Tried to restart, check engine light starts blinking. What could be the problem?

Go to nearest autoparts supplier and they usually will scan for codes free of charge, and point you in right direction of part(s) required to correct the problem . If your still not sure, write down the codes and get back to me/us.

Brake light flickers while driving down the road.

Check the brake fluid. It may be just low enough to occasionally turn the light on as you hit bumps and it sloshes a little. Add a little brake fluid to the reservoir and check the brake pads all around.
