    I am having the same problem. Vehicle will turn over but not start. Error code nobu5 shows up in odometer window. Check Engine message also displaying. Gas gauge reading empty with ignition on but tank is definely 100% full. (verified full tank of gas) Checked all fuses and relays under the hood but they all seem fine. Fuses inside driver compartment also checked and okay. I am thinking of getting it towed to a garage but checking here first in case it is something simple. Was running great and problem started when going to work in the morning. (vehicle in my garage) 155,000 km on vehicle. Need to vehicles as wife also works. HELP!!!!

    I have a 99 Durango with an after market alarm as well as a factory alarm. When I turn the key to the start position the doors continually lock in 3-4 second intervals there is nothing happening with the engine and I see the security light illuminate on the dash.

The solution I have found is in the connectors on the wiring harness that plugs onto the computer. After the engine bay gets hot (especially in the summer) the connectors get soft and the tiny pins inside them lose contact. Leave the key in the on position, pop the hood and press on the middle connector on the left hand side on the fender well (passenger side) where the computer is. The computer looks like a small power amp for a car stereo and the 3 connectors are under/below it. The middle one seems to be the gremlin. It only takes a slight push and you will here the fuel injectors energize (buzz) and the key chime will start dinging inside the car. Then go back inside and turn the key off and then on to start your car. If it works, put some silver or white HVAC (Duct) tape on the connector. If it happens again, at least you know where the problem is, and usually it just needs to be adjusted and more tape on it. I have only had to adjust one time in 6 months Now at least you can drive the truck again to a cliff or a field and torch it. I know that there are many other problems with the 99 Durango, but maybe by the time you see this there will be a solution from Dodge before someone is killed after their truck stalls in the middle of the freeway loaded with kids. Let me know if this works for you by writing to:

Hi it's Gord from the June 9th posting. Found out problem to be the computer under the hood located on the passenger side above the front wheel well. Unit has 3 connector plug ins feeding it. Computer had to be replaced. Cost of unit $465 in Canada.

Soon as unit was changed out, engine fired immediately upon turning on the ignition. Problem solved. Hope this helps anyone fast track a solution if they are having the same problem.

1999 4x4 dodge durango 5.2 liter has knock when accelerated and oil pressure gauge goes to zero. I have replaced oil pump and still have the same problem. Also I have been experiencing a loss of all gauge indications with truck running and odometer reading no bus. I have verified all fuses and grounds but still can't find a solution.

Durango error in odometer window - nobu5


Hey Gord,
Try disconnecting your CPU for about 3 to five minutes, this will reset your CPU. Then see if it starts. Note. there is probably a faulty microswitch somewhere causing your CPU to overheat and cut everthing off (No BuS). Try keeping it cold with a zip-lock bag of ice (keep your CPU dry). Your Durango should work as long as you keep the CPU is cold.

Why my '99 Durango won't start? The battery is fine so far everthing is working but the radio?


Hi Sheila, i'm glad to help. 99 Durango's with thew 5.2 liter engine were good about the Crank Sensors going bad. Now, as I can't say that securily with out diagnosis. If it were my vehicle and knowing what I know about no starts, that is diffinently where I would start. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Sheila.

My 99 Durango won't start. When I turn the key


Have your battery checked. It should read 12 - 14VDC and stay at 12VDC and above while turing the key to start it.

My 99 Durango won't start.


If you don't know for sure, you will need to figure out if it is a no spark or a no fuel pressure issue to proceed.
If it is a no spark problem, check the ASD relay and the coil for voltage and ground signal.

My 99 dodge durango shut off on my wife. she said that the engine light turned on and the engine just shut off. she said she tried to turn it back on, but the durango just started t shake. now when you try...


Check your PCM a very common issue among Durangos See if there is any type of error code in the odometer. If 'no bus' is shown it is your PCM the main computer and your looking at about $500-$800 to replace it. to get it started try unhooking the battery cable for a few minutes and then hooking it back up
