Question about 1998 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

1998 Durango doors don't stay locked.

I have a 1998 Durango. The door locks will not stay locked when using the switch. They cycle to the lock position, but immediately unlock again. When locked manually they will stay locked however. If this makes a difference, I had to replace the battery in the key fob, but the key fob still doesn't work. The door lock problem started before that though. Any help will be appreciated.

There's a sensor or switch in the ignition cylinder that is there to keep you from locking the doors using door switches when the key is in the ignition. This is performs just like you are describing. The doors will lock then immediately unlock. Maybe the sensor/switch in your ignition keylock is bad or disconnected somehow.

Best of luck

1998 dodge durango. both the power windows and door locks stopped working. any suggestions?


They are on two different circuits. The windows are on a 25amp circuit breaker, and the door locks are on a 20amp fuse.
The door locks go thru a central timer module but the windows don't.
Have you checked for power and ground at the driver's door switch ?

1998 Continental; remote door lock intermittent using both fobs. Problem?


All of the locks don't function at times or just one door? If it is just one door the lock actuator is likely defective or the wiring harness to the door has a broken wire inside the wire insulator that runs through the rubber convoluted tube from the body to the door.

1998 dodge durango. used to have an alarm, I dont have a remote. Alarm should be disabled. truck is acting like its alarm is going off. Ignition is locked. wont turn over


close all the doors and lock them. Try unlocking the passenferside door. See if that esets the alarm. If not let one of the windows down lock the doors and with the key left on disconnect the battery than reconnect it. Reach in the car throw the window and get in, Turn the key off than try starting it. Hope this helps. Leave comment.

1998 Ford Windstar fuse problem - dome light stays on etc


you most likely have a bad door ajar switch- the door panel has to be removed to access it, its on the door latch- you can unplug them this will take care of the batt drain prob.as for the locks it may be a switch problem- most ford vehicles will not let you lock the vehicle from the driver's door when it's open to prevent locking the keys in.
