2000 Dodge Durango bad steering pully cable and pump

Hi, I had my transmission replaced and now the steering was hard to turn after picking it up from shop, so I took the Durango back to the mechanic and he says the power steering pump and cable is bad. My question is did the towing or transmission repair had any thing to do with this problem?

Unless the tow truck operator hooked up to the wrong thing the tow will have nothing to do with it.

I have never heard of any connection to the transmission and power steering, so the chances of the transmission repair causing the p/s failure is pretty low.

Is the repair shop reputible? I would recommend a second opinion from another shop.

It most likely is the power steering leaking from a pipe or seal, they sometimes only leak when the steering is turned full lock so make sure you ask them to hold the steering both ways for a while. they wont leak much but I know some kia's have this issue.

Steering wheel lock,key won't turn.

Are the wheels turned all the way left or right?
If so: insert the key in the ignition. and pull down hard on the steering goin in-the-same-direction that they are already turned. Turn the ignition ket at the same time.
If not: then you will need to take the steering column covers off and check on this mechanism which locks the wheel and the cylinder when the wheels are turned this way. it is located up adjacent the ignition key cylinder. There is a spring and a plastic mold piece inside this mechanism which may have failed.
Another possibilty is: Does your vaehicle have a Security System? Is the key you are using a security key?

My 2000 dodge durango will not shift into over drive took it to autozone and the code came back as a sensor in the transmission. How do I get to it to change it out.... Chould it really just be a sensor?...

It could easily just be a sensor, but if you don't know much about transmissions, you are best served to take it to a transmission shop and let them fix it. Now days, transmissions are very hard to work on yourself.

2001Dodge Durango power steering is stiff

Get it to a shop you may have a power steering censor leak. If your handy read on.. Check the fluid level if it's low don't add more change the censor first then refill. The issue is the fluid travels through the censor into your wiring harness to your computer and other censors shorting everything out. If your fluid is low pull the censor wire off it's next to the fill tank on the pipe connected to it, if you see fluid in that wire bring this truck to Dodge. Or as I said before if your handy and you suspect this is the case, wright back and I'll give you a call and walk you through this. This is a common serious problem the can destroy your computer and possibly you engine. It can be fixed for under a hundred dollors.

Shift solenoid C malfunction

I have had the same problem, found out it is the wiring harness off the transmission. When it gets wet, it would cause the transmission to shift hard. After it dried out it would be fine. Mitsubishi has a TSB out on this. You have to remove the wiring harness and check all of the wires, its best to strip them back to make sure that you have no corrosion. Heat shrink them and reattatch. Seams like a error on Mistusbishi design. The bracket that holds the harness it what caused the cut in the wire then the short when it gets wet. Take it to your dealer to have it checked out.
