I have a 1998 Durango which toasted the tranny a year ago. It sat for about 6 months until we decided to fix it. We put a junk yard tranny in it and it was bad, well per an agreement with the junk yard they paid to have the tranny rebuilt. So I have a new tranny, and torque converter. But here are the real problems. The car was being driven and just shut off. We were able to get it started again by moving relays around in the electrical panel. Well it was out on a test drive yesterday when it shut off again. When I say shut off it was just like you turned the key off. ALL POWER WENT AWAY. They considered the fuel pump was drawing too many amps and shutting off. Attributing that to it sat for 6 months and the fuel went bad. Apparantly they ruled out the fuel pump as it was too sporatic in happening. They began to think the computer went bad since it sat so long. (Never heard of that myself) So they got a loaner computer to test. No luck. They have had a Dodge dealer mechanic come and look over the electrical system, no problems found. Currently the car won't run and gets no fuel pressure. I'm not a mechanic but I am looking for some feedback. I have a remote starter that was professionally installed back in '03, and worked flawlessly. But the shut off sounds exactly like what it does when you press on the brake with out the key installed. Could this unit have gone bad and be causing the shutdown and failed start issues? Possibly why the dodge mechanic can't find anything?
Ideas? Please help, I want my truck back!!
