Question about 2001 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

My 2001 Dodge Durango has a strange problem. About 2 weeks ago, the HORN stopped working. It still "Beeps" if I press the Fob for "Lock" so I know the horn is okay. Then, 2 days ago, the CRUISE CONTROL failed to operate, and hasn't operated since. Now, the "Air Bag" light cycles On, Off, On, Off over and over. I checked fuses, and all is good. It would seem that a "ground wire" to the steering column is disconnected or corroded, but I've not been able to track it down. The clockspring seems okay. Any ideas?

When I lock my 2003 dodge durango, the horn won't blow. when I hit panic button it works...what's going on? Bought vehicle new, worked fine...stopped about 2 years ago. Never have found an answer


Recheck the settings. I believe you can do this threw the radio. I have seen to many computers that just loose their programming. PCM's wipe clean. Can't say why. Just did. Had them programmed and all was good.

I have a 2001 dodge durango. the horn works when i set the alarm but does not work from the steering wheel at all.


The horn has power all of the time but does not go off untill it is grounded. The switch in the steering wheel is the ground when you press it completing the circuit and sounding the horn. The alarm does not use the steering column or steering wheel ground path to "beep" the horn, it uses its own ground. The problem then will more than likely be in the steering column, steering wheel switches, or clock-spring. The clock spring is not for the clock. It is a spiral-wound wire set that allows the steering wheel to turn and not bind up the wires going into the steering wheel. It is called a clock-spring due to the "spiral" wound design of the connector. The horn ground wire in the steering wheel gets its connection through this clock-spring, so it may the source of your problem. It would require some electrical diagnostics to verify the actual point of failure.

Your Durango possibly needs a CTM or Central Timing Module. The module is located behind the kick panel down by the drivers feet on the left.

The repair commands a ~$500 price for parts and labor, and they will need both your remote fobs to program them to the system.

Dodge durango 2001 going nuts


I installed an aftermarket trailer wire harness and hooked it up to a boat that was not grounded or made a bad circuit. This resulted in a very strange electrical failure to the point the vehicle shut down and I had to disconnect the trailer harness and restart. I also washed my engine once and somehow spayed water through the firewall into the ecm on the drivers side kick panel... Again strange electrical problems occurred, this could be identified by the loss of the keyless entry

2005 dodge durango key fob


Hello and thank you for choosing fixya.com. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a local auto parts store and request to have a diagnosis done. (while auto stores vary, this is usually a free service and only takes a couple minutes to complete) to see if any codes are brought up. If so, the representative can tell you what the codes mean, and what needs replaced or repaired. Let them know of the situation. Even if no codes show up, ask them to clear the codes. If this does not work, do the following. 1: make sure that the batter in your key fob is inserted correctly, and that it is the correct size and type. 2. Disconnect the + Positive cable on your battery. This will reset your the vehicles computer. Maybe this will allow the vechile to code up with the fob. If not, I would take it to dealership, or backto an auto part store for further assitance.

I thank greatly for choosing fixya.com. I hope this information is useful to you and helps you get your fob working again. Let me know if you need further assistance, or have any questions or comments. Feel free to rate this information at your earliest convenience.

Horn doesn't work in car but does work with key fob


Your horn inop problem is in the rotating contact for the horn connection underneath the steering wheel, it is called the clock-spring contact by us techs because that is what it looks like, if you do replace it yourself then you must disarm the airbag or serious injury can result.
