Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1998 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 122008

Durango SLT 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 220,000 miles


Well I replaced the transmission and the cruise control stopped working. It took me awhile to figure it out because nothing on the cruise control goes to the transmission. Well I happened to notice when removing the tranny that the insulation of the wires at the connector of the park/neutral switch were gone on all three wires about two inches up from the pins. It appears that the heat cooked the insulation and it feel off from vibration or something. The only code I had was the P1899 which calls out the wiring to the switch or the switch itself. All I had to do was wrap the 3 wires with electrical tape and it�s worked perfect since. Hope this helps some of you if you have the same problem!
