Sounds like the engine management computer is not getting any signal from the Air Flow Sensor. Check the plug where it is connected to the sensor which is located between the Air Filter and the inlet manifold.

Dodge anti theft module

I suspect that there are wires chafing inside the steering column. Vibration while driving and turning the wheel for turns cause these wires to come into contact with other wires or grounds thay were not intended. You may need to look in this area more closely and repair insulation that is missing from the wires. A few wraps of quality electrical tape *and* repositioning the wire(s) so that they are not pulled / stretched again and / or inserting something non-conductive between the wire(s) should solve the problem.
Good luck!

How much fluid does the auto trans take in a 2001 dodge durango 4wd take

Welcome to FixYa.

My spec. reference indicates 5 quarts.

To check your fluid level;

To do this you must run the vehicle for at least 15 minutes, place the shifter in all area's one at a time for 5 seconds each from park all the way down to low 1, then all the way back up to park, 5 seconds in each gear then slowly return it to the neutral position, engage the parking brake, then check the fluid level while the D is running. You will need to wipe and check it a couple of times to get the actual level.

I have a 2001 Dodge Dakota QuadCab with original Keyless Entry. Now the problem is that all the Doors gets 'Unlocked' automatically every 5 to 10 second intervals, even if the vehicle is running or parked.

Check the wires that run along the drivers kick pannel and the wires that run through to the inside of the door. One is probably shorted to ground causing it to unlock
