Physically, it's very easy.

I would recommend going to a dealership though, because when they replace the PCM, they need to flash the new computer with your VIN #, otherwise it won't run.

Where is the CPU on my 2001 Dodge Durango located

The PCM. They are referred to ECM PCM etc, if that is what your looking for it is inside the engine bay on the RH side (passenger) inner fender right about in the middle you will find a aluminum box with about 4 plugs plugged into it.

Dodge Durango Won't Start, Turns over, NO BUS on instrument cluster

1998 - 1999 Dodge Durango 3.9L
2000 - 2001 Dodge Durango 4.7L
1998 - 2000 Dodge Durango 5.2L

The PCM has 3 connectors plugged into it. Try wiggling each connector and listen for a clicking sound, starting with the connector furthest from the front of the Durango, and the middle connector with a white top.

If this doesn't help, replace your PCM. The PCM (power control module) can get hot, causing a short or broken circuit inside the module. Replacing the module will fix the problem. If your truck dies randomly when it's hot outside, but will start back up after it cools down, this is probably the problem.

I replaced my 2001 durango PCM with a used one and just became aware that it has security, whereas my Durango doesn't. Hence, it starts and then stops after a couple seconds. I already exchanged old p

The same thing happened to me but with a Grand Cherokee. The two computers are NOT interchangeable and cannot be made to work. I would contact the place you purchased the PCM from and have them exchange the one you have with the right app.

Looking for BCM for 2001 Dodge Durango - needs replacement

Your looking for the PCM? The computer module in the Durango that controls everything on the durango? If so, then the PCM is made for each Durango specifically. You cannot buy a used one or from a salvage yard. Each PCM is programmed with the VIN# from that Durango. So, any other PCM will not work. You have to go to a dealer and have them get a generic PCM (or autozone $240 if you trust them?) and it will cost with installation and reprogramming? $450.
