Dodge Durango



  • My airbag light in the dash stays on all the time. Anyone have the same problem or know what causes it.
    Thanks Greg :

    I have the same exact issue with my '04 Durango Hemi and two different dealerships haven't been able to fix it. Did you ever get it worked out? Thanks in advance for any info.

  • It's usually your clockspring that causes the problem. However, your safest bet is to have it checked out at the dealer. I'm a dodge tech and have seen a few of these come in for this.

    I just had my Rack replaced of my (Rack and Pinion Steering). My Airbag light now stays on, and sometimes goes on and off like if there was a loose connection or module. Fuses were good. It also passed NYS Inspection after the rack was replaced. Any Ideas ? Cost ?

    Should be on the left bank under the exhaust manifold along with the engine size. if not there check the other side.

    your situation sounds like an isolated problem. sorry man, thats just bad luck. pretty rare for that to happen to any vehicle. but [non-permissible content removed] happens. its easy to replace though. just get the parts and do it urself.

    have recently found that the rear diverter door was broken as well as the rotating stop on the white turn control for the rear diverter door that is controlled by the rear temp control. had to purchase the complete plenum box as the individual parts are not available. it seems as this has been a problem as the numbers for these parts have been superseeded a few times already. does any one know if the system needs to be calibrated,(motor stops) or just put it back together, and say a prayer.
    yes the truck is out of warranty.
    thanks Larry Philadelphia

    there was some kind of recall awhile back for something in my 2004 durango that pertained to the dash that would overheat did the dealer tell you about this?

    Yes I have the same problem with my 2005 Dodge Durango, the rattles are very loud and it seems to be coming from within the dashboard. Have you had a chance to get it looked at yet?
  • Can anyone tell me what tool I need to remove the front brake caliper from the rotor? It looks like a torx head bolt possibly. Its a 2000 durango 4wd 5.9

    Today November 26, 2008 Chrysler LLC. made it official as of the end of December 2008 the Durango and the Aspen will be the end of production. This hybreds.

  • Simple question here. I've just gotten a 2001 Durango, and I was told I had to stop and put the vehicle in neutral to engage and disengage the 4wd. Can someone tell me if this is true? I don't want to break anything by doing it wrong. Other SUVs I've driven could be engaged in Hi 4wd while moving. There was no owners manuel with it. thanks.
  • I have the exact same issue. Please help. I would love to fix the stereo I currently have and get the CD's out that are stuck in there. Is there anyone that knows what to do. Thanks

    Try the tips in the How to Remove a Stuck CD guide. Especially the fuse trick.

    Changers are tough to "reboot" though. Your best bet may be to replace it with an aftermarket stereo.
  • From 2wh to 4wh you can be moving then after shift let off gas. from 4h to 4lo 2-3 mph also 4lo to 4hi 2- 3 mph, also dont stop in neutral when shifting go right past or you will have to stop and turn off engine.

    i've got a 1999 durango that lost all gears except first and reverse. had the tranny tested and the shop said it was the valve body. i want to rebuild it myself but need a schematic. if anyone knows where to find one online, it would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

    Interesting. I have a 2001 Durango R/T and the side air vents don't seem to blow much at all (if any). I don't remember it being this bad. Also, I thought the entire A/C system worked better than it does now.

    Recently, my compressor broke and took the A/C clutch with it. Fortunately, I had it under the extended warranty plan and it cost me nothing to repair. I thought my A/C would finally work well. It still doesn't. Hhhhmmm.

    To set things in a proper light: I have another Dodge/Plymouth vehicle and the A/C works great!!! So great in fact that I sometimes have to move it a bit off the coldest setting to keep from getting too cold. I didnt think that was possible with Dodge/Chrysler/Plymouth vehicles, but it is.

    Anyway, using a thermometer, I tested the temperature on the coldest setting both at idle as well as while the car was moving. My Plymouth vehicle's A/C blows at 40 degrees Fahrenheit! Very nice! In contrast, the Durango blows at 60 degree Fahrenheit. OMG! Not good at all, especially when combined with the low blow from all the vents.

    I opened the hood and used thermal insulating tape to wrap the cold side piping from the compressor including the dryer and the pipes going into the firewall. There is an obvious design defect in that these cold A/C pipes pass within about 8 inches of the exhaust manifold that is usually somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 degrees. There is no shroud between them. Not a good design.

    Anyway, by wrapping the cold A/C piping I was able to lower the temperature of the air blowing from the fans by 8 degrees! If I can just increase the amount of air blowing into the car I'll be happy enough, but it still won't be great. I'm still going to try and drop the temperature further, but unsure how to proceed or where to look.

    Just sharing.
