What is the solution for the durango turning off while driving? mine-2000 5.9 4wd

I would take it to an autoparts store that does a free 'code scan' and see if the computer has captured the failure. I suspect this is computer related issue so the code(if any) could be misleading. Had an 90's model New Yorker in the 90's shutting down for no reason and replacing the computer fix it.

That said a battery getting old (most commonly) or something in the electrical system not working correctly can cause a good computer to malfunction. Have the battery tested as well or switch to known working battery.

Blowing fuel pump fuse some times when hit bumbs in road 2001 jeep wrangler

Sorry to say asking questions on a web site & expecting
an answer based someone guessing, won't help you get
to the problem

You have to actually test to resolve vehicle issues

I doubt any bumps are involved as the only cause

If you have a fuse blow you know the issue

Short to Ground -thus fuse goes
Overload Current Wise --thus fuse blows

So you get a wiring diagram of the effected circuit & have at
walking down the entire circuit from the battery to the fuel
pump, in your case

A volt meter & diagrams & lots of time

Never want a fuse to blow, but you at least
know what to look for now it does.

The fuel pump could be the issue if it binds up

Check Pump for current draw & voltage drop the entire
system from battery looking for short along the way- after
you eliminate the pump

Anti-Lock brake light and traction off light came on

U have most likely damaged a wheel sensor ring, in order to ID the one you damaged u will need to have the ABS/TRACTION CONTROL system tested for trouble codes, this will lead to the right area for repair.

It will just shut down and come rite back on line.

Try replacing the brain with a refurbished PCM. Google for the Florida company site and call the guys there and see what they think. I had a similar problem with 99 Durango and bought a refurbished brain for < $300.00 and 3 screws later my car was fixed with no problems since.
