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.

2001 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 042007

(reported on)

Durango V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 81,000 miles


All doors and the rear hatch keep trying to lock repeatedly, even with the key not in the vehicle. I've tried removing the key fob batteries and even driving without them (to no avail). The problem is worse sometimes. The alarm sets sometimes and other times it does not set. I disconnected the rear hatch lock's electrical connection, but the problem persists. I can't locate the relay or RF receiver (I assume it has to have one) that controls it, but it sounds as if its located somewhere under the dash on the driver's side.

Any ideas on this, anyone?

Since the purchase of my 2001 Dodge Durango I will have replaced the electronic door locks 4 times with this latest change out. Of course the dealer has never heard of this type of problem before. Keep in mind they changed them out the third time. Apparently they have never attempted an online search that shows it is as rampant as their sorry transmissions. While the other 3 times I did get the locks replaced under warranty, this time I will have to pay. My problem is this is obviously a latent defect and they just let it play out until it goes out of warranty. Ultimately there is nothing I can do. There is no trade in value on a Dodge because all dealers know it is a piece of junk. Apparently Dodge isn't worried about repeat business since their response is there isn't anything they can do... You can bet your @#$% my next vehicle wont be a @$$% Dodge.
