Question about 2002 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

Multiple electrical problems

We bought this vehicle used with 140,000 miles, it is the SLT 4.7L 4x4 model. It came with typical issues, tail light out, one head light out, some rust, needed brakes etc. After some time I noticed more and more minor electrical problems. I replaced the headlight (both of them) but the one is still out, the taillight is okay now, replaced fuse. The passenger window (power) does not go down from the passenger door but will go down from the driver's side (window lock is not engaged). Driver's side rear window does not work at all. Radio just brings static but CD works. Power locks do not work. It attempts to lock but fails. It just seems strange that it is all electrical. Should I tackle each problem individually or could it be a larger problem? Also replacing the headlight did not get it to work again, the other one does and so does the flood lights. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance. Joe

Yes take each problem one at a time, the passenger window is probably the switch on the passenger door, drivers side rear window sounds like motor or connection problem, your headlight is probably a bad ground for that light power locks a fuse or relay, radio, ck antenna leads

It depends on whether or not the drive train is actually going in to 4x4 mode. If the 4x4 is working properly, I would think it is just burned out light bulbs and not an issue with the operation of the system.

2002 GMC envoy SLT 4x4, tccm, switch problem


About 45% of all transmission problems are due to a defective battery, its components and the charging system. Make sure you have the correct battery in the vehicle and inspect all items relating to the charging system and the battery. The vehicle should charge between 13,5 to 14.5 volts. The condition of the belts is part of this inspection. If all of this is A-ok then get a scanner and pull the codes in the PCM.
Remember once light is illuminated for a item that item no longer works. Once you've gotton to this point let me know and I'll walk you threw it. Hopefully its just a weak or incorrect battery or something along those lines. Good luck and keep me posted
