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.

problem #2

Jul 202007

Durango SLT 4.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


Easy to fix...locate set of wires leading to blower box under dash on passenger side. Unplug the wires from the blower box. Using 1/4 drive socket set, remove the two hex head bolts on either side of the plug outlet. Pull downward to remove the outlet from the blower box. This is the part that needs to be replaced. It has a relay circuit built into it and it will "burn out" when taxed on extremely hot days. Now, get the new part from your dodge dealer...aftermarket not yet available...and replace it. You've saved a bunch of $ by doing it yourself. the part number because this is likely to happen again UNLESS, on very hot days, cool the vehicle down a little buy driving with windows down BEFORE kicking on the AC...I've replaced this relay twice and since I've used this practice, it's been fine. Good luck!

The high fan only is new, probably a resistor pack. A/C is terrible in general, see my other complaint.
