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 #4

Durango 4WD

  • miles


2001 Dodge Durango with recall for the ignition/park interlock system. In 2008 the consumer scheduled an appointment to have the recall performed regarding the ignition/park interlock system. On February 16, 2010, the ignition malfunctioned. The key would not go completely in the ignition, therefore, he was unable to start or move the vehicle. The vehicle was towed to the dealership. The consumer was then informed that the ignition tumbler could not be repaired because one of the metal bars in the tumbler had jammed in the locked position and that a new tumbler was needed. The consumer was certain that the malfunction of the tumbler was caused by the repair to the ignition/park interlock system.

Key will not turn when put in ignition; after a google search found many Dodge vehicles have this problem. Per the auto forums - put key in ignition and tapped key on right hand side while in ignition (I guess to push key in further) and then the key would work to start Durango. Have to do this every time.
