Question about 1999 Dodge Durango
Not sure but I think i's a 99 model
parents are currently stuck - vehicle won't start
odometer field shows "nobu5"
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.
