Question about 2001 Dodge Durango
Hi Ronald, I'm glad to help! Here's what you need to do to see if you need a latch. First, we will check power and ground to the latch. You will need a test light to do this and a very long piece of wire. The long piece of wire is to make sure we have a good connection. First will check for power at the latch. RUN the long piece of wire from the negative battery cable all the way back to the hatch door. Hook the wire to your test light, turn the igniton key on and probe the power side at the connector on the latch itself, if it lights up then the power side is OK. NEXT: Move the long piece of wire from the negative battery cable to the positive battery cable. This will let us check the ground side going to the latch. NOTE: You will need a helper for this one, while probing the negative side of the connector at the latch have a helper push the release switch inside the vehicle. If the test light, lights up then the negative side is OK. NOTE: If you have both power and ground at the connector going to the latch, then replace the latch itself. If you do not have either power or ground then you'll need to check and see where its loosing it. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Ronald.
