On the connector there should be an orange plastic tab, you need to slide that over before the conector will release.

Starting problems dodge durango 2006

for one, your starter / solonoid unit is in need of attention, even replacement ! it stays engaged, hanging up, solonoid could be going bad, replace the entire unit. check the positive & negative battery cables sometimes they need replaced ! think about it, a cable as big as they are, you would'nt think they would need replaced , but maybe they do ??? just a thought ! alwasy clean battery terminals , put vaseline on them before reconnecting the terminals, it will keep them clean & corrosion free ! clean off battery also, remember its acid, so don't get any on your clothes !

How do you pull the starter from a 99 dodge durango?

Disconnect battery.
Find positive battery wire and follow it to lower side of engine to the starter.
Disconnect battery wire from starter.
Loosen & remove the (usually 2) retaining bolts holding starter to engine.
Remove starter with a back and down action.

To replace just do the opposite.

Hope this helps...

Disconnect the positive battery terminal from the battery and touch it to the negative terminal for a couple seconds. This will reset the computer but the light will come back on eventually if there is still a problem

2003 dodge durango no headlights,no wipers ,no door locks no parking lights all fuses good

Outkastroost, I had the same problem last year with my '03 Durango. It happened shortly after we installed a new stereo. The solution was to disconnect the negative battery terminal for about 30 seconds to reset the computer. It's been working fine for a year now after that. I hope this works for you, too.
